Bears @ Cowboys Injury Report: Anthony Spencer, Matt Forte

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Both teams have until Monday to get their players ready, but it's never too early to look at the injury report.

On the Cowboys side of the injury ledger, we have a few questions. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh is practicing on a limited basis, but is assuring everybody he'll play. Based on the moves the Cowboys made this week in cutting Mana Silva, they must be sure he can go. Lawrence Vickers has the flu but will play on Monday. Anthony Spencer has a pectoral issue, but seems sure he'll play, too. The signing of punter Brian Moorman means that Chris Jones won't play. Jones also held on placekicks, a duty that will fall to Moorman. You can read about that, here.

For the Bears, Matt Forte and Earl Bennett practiced on a limited basis. As for Forte, Lovie Smith didn't guarantee he'll play, but it's sounding optimistic for the Bears that they'll have their star running back. Brian Urlacher was held out of practice as a precaution.
