The Bears have a few player concerns to sort out before the big game.
Waiving undrafted rookie tight end Jake Tonges has eliminated one problem.
They are preparing for the return of linebacker Matthew Adams and, maybe, wide receiver Byron Pringle.
Both athletes have been placed on injured reserve and have had their 21-day windows for a potential comeback extended.
Therefore, they need a free player slot.
They also need to figure out a way to get third-round pick Velus Jones involved and producing.
