McClellin back, Finnegan likely out for Bears-Rams game

The injury-ravaged Bears get a little good news when they travel to St. Louis on Sunday.  Defensive end Shea McClellin, a 2012 first-round pick, most likely returns after missing two games with a hamstring injury.

McClellin, who fully participated in practice all week, is probable.  When he last played nearly three weeks ago against the Packers, McClellin was named NFC defensive player of the week — and he tackled Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a way that resulted in a broken collarbone.

Also probable are long snapper Patrick Mannelly (calf), tackle Jordan Mills (quad), and cornerback Isaiah Frey (cornerback).

Missing the game for the Bears will be defensive lineman Jay Ratliff (groin), defensive tackle Stephan Paea (toe), linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder), and quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle).

Most likely missing the game for the Rams will be cornerback Cortland Finnegan, who is doubtful with an eye injury.  Guard Harvey Dahl (knee) is out, as is quarterback Brady Quinn (hip).

    He’s my new favorite player. Someone had to show the world how old Rodgers has gotten.

    Not having Finnegan should help the Bears move the ball. But Paea missing the game and Ratliff still being “injured” means Zack Stacey has a big day. This is going to be a good game! I am going. Super pumped.

    Nothing worse, when you play cornerback, to suffer from a injured cornerback.

    With McClellin’s speed on that turf, he’ll be pushed an additional 3 yards past the ball carrier/QB. Should be awesome to watch him pretend to be an NFL player again.

    How did Quinn get hurt?

    Actually, Stephen Paea being out will likely have a greater impact. The Bears run D has been atrocious even when he is in. Now it will be even worse ugh.

    He gave the division to the bears with that tackle. We all know the lions are going to eat it down the stretch.

    Brady Quinn is out? I’ve got to go change my bet….

    I’m a pack fan, and I struggle to think of a season both the bears and packers were this ravaged by injuries. The Lions practiced EVERY player this week, but record is tied with bears, and packers are one game back.

    It is unreal they haven’t run away with this division to me. Its amazing, that after such a brutal season, both teams are still in it. This truly is our division.
