Tight end Desmond Clark is expected to miss his third game of the season as he will be sidelined Sunday with a neck issue.
That means more playing time for Kellen Davis, and it’s not a good sign for the already struggling 30th-ranked rushing offense. Clark missed two games earlier this season with fractured ribs.
Coach Lovie Smith said that Clark and safety Kevin Payne (back) will be listed as doubtful for the game. Neither practiced today or this week. Doubtful, in Bears’ terms, means out.
Center Olin Kreutz is expected to start.
