Jaylon Johnson, David Montgomery Out

Bears starters Jaylon Johnson and David Montgomery have been ruled out due to injuries and the Giants have six players who are out.

The Bears will take on the New York Giants without running back David Montgomery and cornerback Jaylon Johnson due to injuries that kept both off the practice field all week.

Johnson has a quad injury and Montgomery suffered an ankle injury in last week's game and both have been ruled out for the game. Johnson missed last week's game, as well.

The Bears face a bit of uncertainty with a few players.

Defensive end Robert Quinn is questionable after missing Thursday's practice with an illness and he returned Friday for a limited practice.

Another situation like that involves kicker Cairo Santos, who was away from the team Thursday and Friday for personal reasons. He is questionable for the game but is not injured.

Coach Matt Eberflus didn't want to comment on Santos' situation or on whether the team needed to bring in another kicker.

One Bears bit of good news is the ability to wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. to go through a full practice without a problem Friday and if he has no setback as a result he will be able to make his NFL debut against the Giants. He has been out with a hamstring injury since the second preseasong game.

Linebacker Matthew Adams missed last week's game with a hamstring injury and was able to go through a limited practice Friday for the first time since his injury but is listed doubtful for the game.

The Giants' best receiver, Sterling Shepard, has gone on injured reserve with a torn ACL.

The Giants did get linbacker Jihad Ward back from a knee injury for a full practice on Friday and he has been pulled off the injured list so he will play.
