Half of the six Bears starters who were injured on Sunday have ankle injuries.

Joining running back Matt Forte and cornerback Charles Tillman is linebacker Lance Briggs.  Per a league source, the walking boot with which Briggs was spotted walking after Sunday’s win over the Vikings is aimed at protecting an ankle injury.

The other three injured Bears are receiver Devin Hester (concussion), guard Lance Louis (knee), and guard Chris Spencer (knee).

The Bears host the Seahawks next week before a return engagement with the Vikings in 14 days.
