Lake Forest, IL ( - The Chicago Bears may be without a pair of defensive starters for Thursday's matchup against the New York Giants, with linebacker Lance Briggs and cornerback Charles Tillman listed as questionable on the team's final injury report.

Tillman missed practice all week with a knee injury, while Briggs participated fully on Tuesday, but was limited on Monday and Wednesday due to foot and hip issues.

Defensive tackle Stephen Paea also missed Wednesday's session with a toe injury, joining Tillman and Briggs, along with tight end Martellus Bennett (knee) as questionable for Thursday.

Defensive tackle Nate Collins was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, while safety Anthony Walters (hamstring) had already been ruled out for Thursday.

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, coming off a 10-catch, 218-yard performance against New Orleans, is listed as probable with an ankle injury.
