Bears WR Chase Claypool (knee) still sidelined


LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- Bears receiver Chase Claypool isn’t ready to return from his knee injury just yet.

Claypool didn't practice Wednesday afternoon and could potentially miss his third consecutive game Sunday. The extent of his injury still isn't clear. Claypool had his right leg twisted up during the Bears' game against the Packers on Dec. 4. He returned for the second half that day but hasn't played since.

The Bears acquired Claypool from the Steelers on Nov. 1, sending their second-round pick to Pittsburgh in return. The 24-year-old Claypool has 44 receptions for 422 yards and a touchdown this season but has been limited to just 12 catches for 111 yards in five games with Chicago.

Like Claypool, receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday. Offensive lineman Cody Whitehair (knee), tight end Trevon Wesco (calf), linebacker Sterling Weatherford (illness), receiver Dante Pettis (ankle), defensive lineman Justin Jones (eye) and defensive lineman Andrew Brown (ankle) were all limited participants in practice. Offensive lineman Teven Jenkins (neck) was a full participant.

The Bears (3-12) visit the Lions (7-8) on Sunday at Ford Field.
