The Bears flew to Jacksonville on Saturday without tight end Demetrius Harris, who was officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
Harris hurt his ankle last week against the Vikings. He was called doubtful on Friday. Primarily a blocking tight end, Harris figures to be replaced by another blocker, J.P. Holtz.
The Bears have already ruled out two starting cornerbacks: rookie Jaylon Johnson, who hurt his right shoulder against the Texans, and slot cornerback Buster Skrine, who suffered a concussion earlier this month against the Lions.
Stars Khalil Mack, Allen Robinson and Akiem Hicks are all questionable, but figure to play.
In his first year with the Bears, Harris has seven catches — on 14 targets — for 45 yards. He’s in his seventh season, and started his career playing for the Chiefs, where Bears head coach Matt Nagy served as an assistant.
The Bears-Jaguars game kicks off at noon Sunday.
