Injury Update: Johnson doubtful; Kmet, Gordon questionable for Sunday's season finale


The Bears are dealing with injuries to starters on both sides of the ball ahead of Sunday's season finale in Green Bay.

Cornerback Jaylon Johnson is listed as doubtful for Sunday's season finale in Green Bay after not practicing all week due to a shoulder injury.

"Just really trying to get him to gametime, trying to get him there," coach Matt Eberflus told reporters Friday. "Obviously with that caliber of player, we're just doing everything we can to get him to the game. We're gonna certainly give it that time as well. For him, he just knows the position really well, can really execute at a high level, he knows the coverages — just little tweaks here and there — so he'd be ready to go. He's been engaged in the meetings, for sure."

Nickel back Kyler Gordon (calf), tight end Cole Kmet (knee), running back Khalil Herbert (personal/back) and long snapper Patrick Scales (foot) are all listed as questionable. Center Lucas Patrick was also listed as questionable with a calf injury, but he was placed on injured reserve Saturday afternoon.

Kmet played sparingly last Sunday against the Falcons after injuring his knee late in the first half of the Dec. 24 against the Cardinals, but kept his streak alive of not missing a game since being selected by the Bears in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Gordon and Patrick were listed on the injury report for the first time Friday as limited participants. Eberflus told reporters Gordon "tweaked his calf" Thursday, and said it's "hopefully trending in the right direction but we will see where it goes."

Receiver Darnell Mooney remains in concussion protocol and will miss his second straight game.

Receiver DJ Moore (ankle) and quarterback Tyson Bagent (illness) were listed on the injury report earlier this week but do not have designations for Sunday's contest.
