Cornerback Jennings officially out Sunday


Cornerback Jennings officially out Sunday

The Bears officially lost their third starter this week when cornerback Tim Jennings was declared out of the Minnesota game with the shoulder injury sustained on an overtime tackle last week against Seattle.
Kelvin Hayden will start in his place.
Jennings joins receiver Earl Bennett (concussion) and linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring) and Minnesota receiver Percy Harvin (IR, ankle) as absents for a pivotal game in both the division and conference for both.
Running back Michael Bush (ribs) and nose tackle Stephen Paea (foot) practiced on a limited basis Friday, as did reserve guard Chris Spencer (knee). All three are listed as questionable but Bush and Paea are expected to play.
Guardtackle Gabe Carimi (hamstring), receiver Devin Hester (concussion) and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (knee) all went through full practices and are slated to play. Hester was cleared under the concussion protocol and should help offset the loss of Bennett.
All Vikings except Harvin and cornerback Antoine Winfield (knee) practiced in full. Winfield was limited but is listed as probable.
