The Bears have had another late-week injury. Tight end Desmond Clark has been added to the injury report with a pulled hamstring and is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
It's unknown at this point if Clark was injured in practice Friday or if he perhaps pulled the hamstring in a walk-through this morning.
This would put the Bears in a bit of a jam with starting fullback Jason McKie already out with a pulled quad muscle that could sideline him for the remainder of the regular season. McKie pulled the muscle in practice on Friday, Nov. 28. It's rare for players to be injured in practice that late in the week.
We'll update this when we have more information.
UPDATED: According to a team spokesman, Clark showed up for the walk-through this morning and reported that his hamstring was tight. Clark has the longest current streak for consecutive starts among tight ends in the league with 63.
If he is unable to play, seldom-used rookie Kellen Davis would be forced into more action. The problem is the Bears do so much with two tight-end sets that if Clark does not play it would probably force them in to using their wide receivers more and that group has provided so little help in the last month.
Fontel Mines is also a possibility. He's been on the team for almost two years now on the practice squad. They would have to clear a roster spot for him though.
