The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without Vincent Jackson and Akeem Spence this Sunday against the chicago Bears, both of them having been ruled out after failing to practice all week. The Bucs may also be without safety Chris Conte and defensive end Kourtnei Brown, both of whom were listed as doubtful this week. Conte's the most likely to play given that he was limited in practice, while Brown failed to participate.

Logan Mankins is listed as questionable but should play, if earlier weeks are any indication. Gerald McCoy was able to practice fully all week.

As for the Bears, the only players in doubt for Sunday are wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and linebacker Shea McClellin, neither of whom practiced this week. Jeffery is likely to play, while McClellin is out unless he manages to pass a concussion test betwee now and game time.
