(670 The Score) Bears right guard Nate Davis is in line to miss his team's game against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Davis didn't travel with the Bears to Tampa due to personal reasons, and he's doubtful to play, the team announced Saturday afternoon. Davis, who signed a three-year, $30-million deal with Chicago in March, missed the majority of training camp and the preseason due to an injury.
The Bears would likely turn to second-year offensive lineman Ja'Tyre Carter at right guard if Davis doesn't make the trip to Raymond James Stadium. In a roster move Saturday, Chicago elevated Aviante Collins from the practice squad to provide depth on the offensive line.
The Bears on Saturday also officially ruled out cornerback Josh Blackwell (hamstring) for Sunday. He had been in line to take over at the nickel position for Kyler Gordon (hand), who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the week.
The Bears (0-1) and the Buccaneers (1-0) kick off at noon CT on Sunday from Raymond James Stadium.
