The Chicago Bears will not have quarterback Jay Cutler or linebacker Lance Briggs on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Cutler is still nursing groin and ankle injuries which caused him to miss the team’s overtime win against the Ravens, while Briggs has not played since injuring his shoulder in October. Neither will be available as the team takes on the Rams this weekend.

The Bears have been plagued by injuries all season, having already lost two Pro Bowlers on defense: cornerback Charles Tillman and defensive tackle Henry Melton.

Chicago is currently 6-4 and tied for first in the NFC North.
