Quarterback Justin Fields was a full participant in practice Friday for the second straight day and was not given an injury designation, meaning he's set to start Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Fields previously missed Wednesday's practice with an illness but told reporters he "felt perfectly fine" following Thursday's workout.
The second-year pro will have the opportunity to build off his strong passing performance against the Packers two weeks ago. Fields threw for a season-high 254 yards while completing 20 of his 25 pass attempts, earning his best completion percentage of the season.
Running back David Montgomery, who missed Thursday's practice with an illness, also fully participated Friday and is ready to go for Sunday. Rookie defensive backs Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker are also set to start against Philadelphia, both practicing the entire week after missing the last two games with concussions.
The Bears have ruled two players out for Sunday's contest – receiver Chase Claypool and tight end Trevon Wesco. Claypool injured his knee two weeks ago against the Packers, while Wesco is dealing with a calf injury. Both players missed the entire week of practice.
While Claypool, who has played in five games for the Bears this season—recording 12 catches for 111 yards—won't be ready for the Sunday, Eberflus believes the receiver will play again this season.
"He's just rehabbing it, getting better. Not where we need it to be for this week, but we're hopeful for coming up here soon," Eberflus said. "But that's where it is right now."
Receiver N'Keal Harry (back) and cornerback Kindle Vildor (ankle) are both questionable despite being full participants in every practice this week. However, Eberflus is "hopeful that [Harry] keeps progressing and does a good job and can be ready for the game."
With Claypool out, Harry questionable and Darnell Mooney on IR, the Bears may be thin at receiver against Philadelphia. Eberflus sees Sunday as an opportunity for other playmakers to emerge, including rookie Velus Jones Jr. Eberflus said Jones has been improving in his alignment, assignment and routes, has been learning the playbook and is "excited about where he's going to go for the next four weeks."
"I think we want to get all of those guys involved, and Velus is no different than the rest of them," Eberflus said. "So I'm sure that, you know, when you have a receiver go down, you know we've been carrying six anyway. Typically, you only carry five. But we'll see what we're going to do this week. But yeah, it will definitely give some more opportunities for others."
Right tackle Larry Borom (knee) is doubtful after practicing in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. Eberflus said the plan is to continue rotating Riley Reiff and Alex Leatherwood at right tackle. Leatherwood impressed Eberflus in his Bears debut against the Packers, playing 10 snaps while rotating in for Reiff.
"Yeah, we're gonna do a little rotation there," Eberflus said. "I'll meet with those guys later today just to figure out what the rotation is. We'll do a little substitution review with each coach and we'll get that figured out, but yeah our plan is to do a little bit of that, for sure."
