Bears scratch Chris Williams for Monday night

Though Bears tackle Chris Williams reportedly was maneuvering well with a hamstring injury in the locker room on Thursday, he’s not in good enough condition to play on Monday night.

The Bears have announced that Williams is out for the prime-time showdown with the Packers at Soldier Field.

Also out for the Bears, as expected, is safety Major Wright.  (I almost typed Major Harris.  It’s a West Virginia thing.)

Probable for the Bears are linebacker Lance Briggs (ankle), defensive end Israel Idonije (foot), linebacker Brian Iwuh (quad), and linebacker Nick Roach (hamstring).

With a guy named Roach having a hamstring injury, I can’t help but wonder whether the treatment includes medicinal marijuana. 

Yeah, it’s lame.  But I still couldn’t help but wonder it.

    Yes, quite lame. Must be a West Virginia thing.

    I didn’t realize he was even an option for Mon. Clay Matthews night just got a little easier. Williams is banged up as much as Justin Harrell

    With Williams out, the Bears have a better chance of winning ! He’s a first round Angelo pick….enough said !

    marijuana is one of the most valuable plants known to man…the only thing funny is why most people believe propaganda so wholeheartedly that they refuse to see it

    Those are the type of weak, pathetic, jokes (if you can call it that) that you usually BAN people from this site for (or ‘permission deny’).

    I’m a Packer fan and that’s just kooky talk. This game is going to be a tough one.

    Frank Omiyale looked sharp(er) while handling a top physical specimen (DeMarcus Ware) last week.
    But more importantly, the Bears adjusted after the first quarter last week and got the ball out of Cutler’s hands with spectacular speed. Green Bay will need, at least on occasion, for their secondary to perform at a high level. The Bears showed last week that they won’t give their opponents time to blitz, even when a team is remarkably effective at blitzing.

    No wonder you ditched the VW Bus, a Benz is much less likely to get pulled over for a little bit of smoke.

    streamrod it would be nice if that became reality and even though the bears got a gift in week one i think the bears may be better than i originally thought. i think the pack will win this game only if rodgers gets into rythym, and spreads the ball around. this may be a shoot out and the team that defends the pass better will win. packers 31 bears 24.

    Steamrod, You’re prediction of 42-7 is just a$inine. You really think the Bears can score a touchdown?
    42-3

    Packers – Bears games are always tough — this game will be decided by less than a touchdown and not until the fourth quarter.
    You heard THAT here first.

    At the most the victor of this game will win by 10 points. Either that or one of these two teams is not “who we thought they were!”

    Clay Matthews “likes this”…

    As was stated, even without Williams in the lineup the Bears held Ware and Spears in check after the first few possessions. The defense isn’t getting to Cutler if he throws it in 2-3 steps. I give the Bears the edge at home: 27-24, ending on a last second FG from Gould.

    Notice how this is about football when no Vikes fans are posting? Weird. I always hated the Bears, but now at least have respect for their fans.

    my guess:
    Cutlers throws 2 picks and he and Martz get seperate bedrooms after this loss
