The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to struggle with injury issues, as four starters are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Not all "questionables" are made equal, though. Doug Martin, Charles Sims and Alterraun Verner are all very likely to suit up and play on Sunday. They sounded optimistic in their locker room quotes, while Lovie Smith didn't sound overly concerned over them. Lavonte David's a different matter. Missing two practices is no small thing, and whether he can play on Sunday is a major question mark.

As for the Chicago Bears, they should have most of their key players available. Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall are both listed as Probable, while the three players who won't suit up on Sunday are not all that important to the overall team. Even Britton is questionable, but given the fact that his limitations are due to illness, he should almost certainly play.
