Monday night was a rough night for the Bears, in more ways than one. A total of 14 players appeared on Wednesday’s injury report, following a Monday night game that featured more than a few players leaving the game and not returning.

The following players did not practice, four days before the team’s prime-time game at Dallas: quarterback Jay Cutler (right thumb); linebacker Danny Trevathan (thumb), linebacker Lamarr Houston (knee), defensive lineman Eddie Goldman (ankle), running back Ka’Deem Carey (hamstring), defensive back Adrian Amos (concussion), defensive back Bryce Callahan (concussion), and defensive back Chris Prosinski (calf).

Limited in practice were receiver Alshon Jeffery (knee), defensive back Kyle Fuller (knee), defensive back Tracy Porter (knee), offensive lineman Josh Sitton (shoulder), defensive back Sherrick McManis (wrist), and offensive lineman Bobby Massie (toe).

Cutler is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with sprained ligaments in his thumb. Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback in what will be a battle of the backups in Dallas, with Dak Prescott getting his third career start as Tony Romo continues to recover from a broken bone in his back.
