Bears Defense Takes Hit As Major Wright, Stephen Paea And Jeremiah Ratliff Become Injured

Major-Wright-Chicago-Bears-570x379 (1)The Chicago Bears‘ defense is going to have to regroup after several starters became questionable for ┬áSunday’s upcoming game against the Vikings.

According to The Sports Network, Bears safety Major Wright pulled a hamstring during practice on Friday. He currently has 76 tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions in 11 games so far this season.

Last season on Nov. 18, he was a member of the Dallas Cowboys. In that outing, the 32-year-old suffered a groin injury that led to a December sports hernia surgery. The Bears acquired Ratliff earlier this month.

Paea missed last week’s game at St. Louis due to a turf toe injury. Cornerback Derrick Martin (hamstring) is also listed as questionable.

Running back Matt Forte is probable after hurting his knee last week against the Rams.

As expected, quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle) and linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) have been ruled out for Sunday.

The Bears need to win Sunday to keep pace with the Lions in the NFC North.
