Bears say RG Nate Davis doubtful for Tampa Bay game, rule out nickel back Josh Blackwell
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears listed right guard Nate Davis as doubtful and ruled out nickel back Josh Blackwell for Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay. The Bears added Davis to the status report Saturday for personal reasons, likely leaving the line without another starter. Left guard Teven Jenkins opened the season on injured reserve. Blackwell suffered a hamstring injury in a season-opening loss to Green Bay. He would have filled in for Kyler Gordon, who broke his right hand in that game. The Bears announced Friday that defensive coordinator Alan Williams will miss the game for personal reasons. Coach Matt Eberflus, a former defensive coordinator with Indianapolis, will call plays in his place.
