Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard is active against the Buccaneers today.

The second-year player out of Indiana injured his shoulder in last week's loss to the Falcons, where he ran for 52 yards and a touchdown.

Howard should suit up but wide receiver Markus Wheaton (finger) is a much longer shot to play in Tampa Bay but is listed as active.

Other injury news we are keeping an eye on Sunday morning:

1. The status of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) will be inactive against the Steelers today in Pittsburgh. Per Rapoport, the Bradford's status was decided after a pregame workout. The good news is that his ACL and ligaments are intact. Linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (hip) are both active for Minnesota.

2. Denver Broncos guard Ronald Leary (concussion) and safety Darian Stewart (groin) are expected to play against the Dallas Cowboys barring a setback, per Rapoport.
