Bears’ Major Wright questionable vs. Vikings

Chicago Bears safety Major Wright injured his hamstring on Friday during the team’s practice, and is now listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

According to ESPN,

“It wasn’t a major pull, but now he becomes questionable for the game,” head coach Marc Trestman said. “We probably won’t know until game time where he’s at there.”

The Bears are optimistic that Wright will be able to play against the Vikings, and Trestman said he spoke to the safety after Thursday’s practice, and he “was feeling good.” If Wright is forced to miss time, the Bears won’t be able to go with backup Anthony Walters, who was officially declared out with a groin injury, along with quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle) and linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder).

It is speculated that if Wright is unable to play on Sunday due to the injury, taking his place will be Craig Steltz.

“Craig has been around. He knows the position. He knows his assignments,” Trestman said. “He’s not a guy who’s going to make a lot of mistakes.”
