Danieal Manning is once again your top nickel back.
It’s not looking likely that Devin Hester will play against the Buccaneers.
Hold your breath! Dusty Dvoracek is preparing to actually play in his third game this season without getting injured-that’s his fourth career game in three years, against the Bucs. I have to say he’s been fun to watch.
In a non-Bears related note, Adrian Peterson is iffy this week with a hamstring. (“With a hamstring,” I know that’s Wanny speak). And starting at quarterback for the Vikings will be 47-year old quarterback Gus Frerotte. (He’s not 47, he’s an old dude like me, like 37 or so). Remember, these were the Vikings roundly predicted to run away with the Super Bowl 43 trophy. They have some catching up to do in that race.
Early prediction from the Chicago Tribune’s Terry Bannon: Bears 20, Buccaneers 13.
