Bears-Eagles injury report, Nov. 20

SHARE Bears-Eagles injury report, Nov. 20

Center Olin Kreutz, strong safety Al Afalava and defensive tackle Tommie Harris were all removed from the injury report for the Bears, meaning it’s a go for them to start Sunday night against the Eagles.

In Philadelphia, starting cornerback Sheldon Brown was deemed questionable with his pulled hamstring. He was limited in practice for the third consecutive day and there is considerable speculation that he will be sidelined. Dimitri Pattersonis the likely replacement for Brown if he cannot go.

With safety Quintin Demps out, rookie first-round pick Jeremy Maclin will likely servce as the kick returner for the Eagles.

Also, as we reported was likely, running back Kahlil Bell was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster by the Bears. He takes the place of Garrett Wolfe.
