The Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings appear to be mostly healthy heading into Sunday's matchup. Expect to see mostly healthy scratches when the inactive players are released Sunday, setting up some solid viewing for fans of physical football between division rivals.
The Vikings are expected to be at full strength along the offensive and defensive lines, despite Phil Loadholt and Kevin Williams being limited in practice during the week. Erin Henderson was a full participant throughout the week, too, so there should be no worries about the linebacker corps.
Julius Peppers and Charles Tillman missed practice for the Bears on Thursday, but neither absence is cause for concern. According to the Chicago Tribune, Tillman sat to deal with a family matter and Peppers was exhibiting flu-like symptoms that will have hopefully subsided by kickoff.
