Bears CB Johnson questionable for Bills game with injury

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Chicago Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson is questionable for Saturday’s game against the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills because of a ring finger injury.

Johnson was limited in practice on Thursday after being a full participant the previous day.

“We feel good right now with where it is and we’ll see where it goes here in the next 24 hours or so,” coach Matt Eberflus said.

Assuming he plays, Johnson has another tough assignment facing Stefon Diggs after going against Philadelphia’s A.J. Brown last week.

Brown had nine receptions for a career-high 181 yards, though Johnson made him work for it and broke up a season-best three passes.

Right guard Teven Jenkins (neck), left guard (Cody Whitehair) and receiver Chase Claypool (knee) are doubtful. Jenkins was carted off the field during last week’s game. Receiver N’Keal Harry (back) is expected to return after missing last week’s game, and receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is out.

The Bears (3-11) have lost seven straight — one shy of the franchise record.
