What a difference a few weeks make. Not long ago, the Bears' injury report was virtually empty. They did a great job of limiting their injuries, but as the season wears on, injuries are inevitable. Last week, the Bears were without their quarterback and leader, Jay Cutler, who was sidelined with a concussion.

The offense had trouble moving the ball in his absence and the team was spanked by the San Francisco 49ers. Cutler has passed his tests and will be back for this game, however.

For the most part, everyone on the injury report will be able to go this week. Alshon Jeffery, however, will not. He returned from a broken hand to play against the 49ers, but injured his knee in the fourth quarter of the contest. He had his knee scoped on Wednesday and is expected to miss at least two weeks.

As for the Vikings, the loss of Percy Harvin is a crushing blow. The receiver/return man didn't travel with the team, taking that dimension out of Minnesota's game plan. Harvin is the only loss for the Vikings, but it's a crushing blow as the more touches he receives throughout a game, the better off the team is.
