“There’s some that are going to catch you and you say ‘shoot, I wish we would’ve planned for that.’
“But decision- making wise, with the quarterbacks and whether there’s an injury or no injury, we talk through that stuff, especially at the quarterback position, exactly that: down and distance, reaching the ball out, when do you sac-
rifice your body and your health versus not, and all that.”
Chase Daniel led the Bears to a 23-16 win over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day and Daniel was the quarterback again last Sunday in a 30-27 loss to the
New York Giants.
The Bears come into the game against the Rams almost entirely healthy, although safety Eddie Jackson did turn up on the injury report Friday when he missed practice with a shin injury.
“That’s nothing,” Jackson
said. “They’re just giving me a little rest. I’m all right. I’m good, 100 percent.”
Nagy called it precautionary because the Bears were practicing indoors on artificial turf and didn’t want to put extra stress on the injury.
Jackson is questionable,
as is defensive tackle Bilal Nichols. Nichols has a knee issue and has been held out of Friday practices for several weeks, but has continued to play.
Backup safety Deon Bush is doubtful due to a hamstring injury.
