The Bears’ biggest injury concern heading into their home game against the Buccaneers is rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney’s shoulder. He is listed as questionable, but expected to play.

The team ruled out backup safety Deon Bush, who left the Colts game with a hamstring injury, and defensive back and longtime special teams ace Sherrick McManis is listed as doubtful.

Outside linebacker Khalil Mack (knee), defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (hand, ankle and shoulder), right tackle Bobby Massie (thigh) and linebacker Josh Woods (thumb) are injured but are expected to play.

Mooney, who has played more than any Bears receiver except Allen Robinson, is third on the team in catches (13) and second in yards receiving (145).

The Buccaneers ruled out wide receivers Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Justin Watson (shoulder), as well as running back LeSean McCoy (ankle). Mike Evans, their leading receiver with 17 catches for 230 yards and an NFL-best five touchdowns, is questionable with an ankle injury. Running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) is doubtful and wide receiver Scotty Miller (hip/groin) is questionable.
