Injury report: Bears remarkably healthy after two weeks of 2018 season

The injury bug that infested Halas Hall over the last few years seems to have left with John Fox.

The Bears are entering the third week of the 2018 regular season, and their injury report continues to be light. No significant contributors other than Adam Shaheen have been sidelined so far, and as they prepare for the Arizona Cardinals, they’re almost full-go at practice.

Safety DeAndre Houston-Carson was limited at practice on Wednesday, and everyone else on the 53-man roster was a full participant.

Houston-Carson has not played after breaking his forearm in the preseason, but his return to practice on a limited basis indicates he could be back sooner rather than later.

Running back Tarik Cohen tweaked his ankle on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, but evidently he didn’t have any lingering issues to affect his ability to practice.

Right guard Kyle Long was also in the injury report last week for ankle issues, but it’s encouraging for the offensive line that he was able to participate fully again this week.

For a team marred by injuries in recent seasons, Chicago should feel very fortunate with how healthy they’ve been so far this year. It’s supposed to only get worse as the season rolls on, but the training staff deserves a lot of credit for a durable start.
