Marshall, Jeffery, Decker questionable for 'MNF'

For the second straight week, the Chicago Bears head into a primetime matchup with starting receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery listed as questionable.

Jeffery practiced on a limited basis all week with a hamstring injury. Marshall was limited Saturday after missing practices on Thursday and Friday with an ankle injury.

The duo was declared questionable last week before ultimately playing. Marshall's three touchdowns keyed the Bears' 28-20 comeback victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

We expect both to play Monday night against the New York Jets. Their presence -- even if not at full strength -- against a secondary that allowed Jordy Nelson to go HAM last week will go a long way toward Chicago's road chances.

Fantasy footballers, however, will undoubtedly wring their hands at the questionable designation.

Some other notes from the Jets-Bears injury report:

  1. Jets receiver Eric Decker is also listed as questionable. The Jets' No. 1 receiver returned Saturday on a limited basis while dealing with a hamstring injury. His situation is more vague. Gang Green's passing offense suffers without Decker in the lineup.
  1. The Bears announced four starters will miss Monday Night Football: center Roberto Garza (ankle), left guard Matt Slauson (ankle), defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) and linebacker Shea McClellin (hand).
  1. Jets cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring/quadriceps) missed his second straight day of practice and is listed as doubtful.
