RG Kyle Long suffered an ankle injury in the game and wore a boot cast to stabilize it afterward. However, Trestman said the injury is not serious and shouldn't keep Long from playing Monday night.

QB Jay Cutler remains week to week and the status of his sprained ankle will be updated after the team resumes practices on Thursday.

LB Lance Briggs, who suffered a shoulder fracture Oct. 20, got in some work on the sideline last week during practices and his status will be updated Thursday when practice resumes. Originally he was expected to miss six weeks, and based on this his return could be expected this week or next.

S Craig Steltz led the team in tackles with 12 as a last-minute replacement for injured Major Wright.

DT Jeremiah Ratliff's debut as a Bear included 27 percent of the snaps and one assist on a tackle. It was his first action in more than a year due to a torn groin muscle.

S Major Wright suffered a Friday hamstring pull last week and missed the Vikings game. His status will be updated Thursday.
