Injury Update: Gipson doubtful, Goldman questionable

injury-update-browns

Bears safety Tashaun Gipson Sr. did not practice Friday and was listed as doubtful on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Browns in Cleveland.

Gipson injured his hamstring in practice this week. The 11-year NFL veteran has started 78 of a possible 80 regular-season games beginning in 2016, only missing two contests in 2019 with a back injury when he was with the Texans.

Gipson started his NFL career with the Browns in 2012, signing as an undrafted free agent from Wyoming. He appeared in 50 games with 42 starts over four seasons, registering 240 tackles, 14 interceptions and 23 pass breakups. He returned two interceptions for touchdowns, including a 44-yarder against Jay Cutler in a 38-31 loss to the Bears Dec. 15, 2013 in Cleveland.

Fortunately, the Bears possess experienced depth at safety in second-stringers Deon Bush and DeAndre Houston-Carson, who were selected by the team in the fourth and sixth rounds of the 2016 draft, respectively. Both players registered key interceptions last season, with Bush's coming against the Giants and Houston-Carson's versus the Panthers.

Veteran nose tackle Eddie Goldman also did not practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday due to a knee injury. Coach Matt Nagy said that Goldman likely will be a game-time decision.

The 2015 second-round pick from Florida State has not played in a regular-season contest since December 2019. Goldman opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns and sat out the first two games this year after hurting his knee in practice on Labor Day.

"He's going to be day-to-day," Nagy said. "I think for him, just making sure that we have him where we want him and he feels how he wants to feel and all that. So, it will probably end up being a game-time decision."

In other injury news, quarterback Andy Dalton was officially ruled out of Sunday's game as expected with a knee injury he sustained in last weekend's 20-17 win over the Bengals. Dalton will be replaced by rookie first-round pick Justin Fields, who will make his first NFL start.

Defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (illness/knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and was listed as questionable after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday.

Receiver Darnell Mooney (groin) and outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring) were both limited and listed as questionable. Asked about Mooney's availability, Nagy said: "I feel good with Darnell."

Three other Bears were listed as questionable after practicing in full Friday: receiver Marquise Goodwin (ankle), defensive tackle Bilal Nichols (back) and safety Eddie Jackson (toe).

Back Questionable

For the Browns, tackle Chris Hubbard (triceps) and linebacker Sione Takitaki (hamstring) were ruled out of Sunday's game, while center J.C. Tretter (knee)and tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. (ankle) were listed as questionable.

Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was not listed on the injury report and is expected to play in his first game since tearing his ACL last Oct. 25.

"He's a rare talent," Nagy said. "We all know that. It's unfortunate he got hurt last year. He's an elite wide receiver that has some of the greatest hands ever in the history of the game. He's a great route runner. Any time you bring a player like that to their offense, you have to know where he's at. Of course, he can throw the ball, too. You have to be alert for gadgets."
