Bears receiver Earl Bennett, who scored a first quarter touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks, is likely to miss Sunday's game in Minneapolis, a league source said.
Bennett didn't play in the second half of of the 23-17 overtime loss to the Seahawks with a concussion. The Bears have not played Jay Cutler, Devin Hester and Shea McClellin the game after suffering a concussion.
The loss of Bennett would be a significant blow to the Bears, who are also not expected to have two key defensive starters against the Vikings. Linebacker Brian Urlacher will miss at least three games with a right hamstring strain while cornerback Tim Jennings is still struggling with a shoulder injury he suffered on a collision with Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson.
The Bears will hold their first practice of the week at Halas Hall later today.
While Bennett may be out, the Bears are hopeful that Hester and rookie Alshon Jeffery may return to action to face the Vikings in a key game. The Bears are 8-4 and tied with the Green Bay Packers atop the NFC North.
