Earl Bennett reportedly likely out for Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears have watched their NFC North lead fizzle away. The loss of another key player won't help them regain it.

A league source told the Chicago Sun-Times that wide receiver Earl Bennett is likely to miss this weekend's game against the Minnesota Vikings after he suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The Bears are dealing with a slew of injuries. Linebacker Brian Urlacher is expected to miss at least three games because of a strained hamstring, and cornerback Tim Jennings' status is hazy because of a shoulder injury.

The scenario at receiver remains ugly for the Bears. Devin Hester is fighting his way back from a concussion, and rookie Alshon Jeffery has missed time after having his knee scoped. There's hope both will be ready to play Sunday, but Bennett's loss would weigh heavily on Chicago.
