Bears

The Record (Troy, NY) - - SPORTS -

“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.
