Briggs, Conte out for Bears

Lake Forest, IL ( – Linebacker Lance Briggs will miss his
second straight game Sunday when the Chicago Bears play the Miami Dolphins.

Briggs missed practice all week due to a rib injury. He has 22 tackles and one
interception in five games this season.

Safety Chris Conte (shoulder) has also been ruled out after missing practice
all week.

Linebacker Jonathan Bostic is questionable after missing last week’s game with
a back injury. He was limited in practice this week.

Left tackle Jermon Bushrod (knee/ankle) is probable after missing the past two
games. Linebacker Shea McClellin, who had been out since suffering a hand
injury in Week 2, is probable and so is linebacker D.J. Williams (neck
injury), who missed last weekend’s game.
