Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher, who has missed the last three games, may return for the must-win finale.
Asked if Urlacher could return, Bears coach Lovie Smith said, "We are definitely thinking that way.
"I would just say he's making a lot of improvement... I know he's feeling pretty good about where he is."
Nick Roach tied for the team lead Sunday with eight tackles, including one for a loss.
"If he's ready to go," Smith said of Urlacher, "good and if not, Nick Roach is doing a great job."
The Bears also could get a few other players back from injury. Henry Melton missed his second consecutive game, but he may return for the Detroit Lions game. Right tackle Jonathan Scott, who missed the start Sunday, also may return.
Running back Matt Forte and safety Chris Conte didn't finish the game. Forte insisted he'd play, while Conte's status (hamstring) is up in the air.
