NFL Week 10 injuries: Bears set to be without 4 starters, including Fields; Panthers missing star edge rusher

We are now officially halfway through the 2023 NFL season, and all 32 clubs are dealing with notable injuries. The New York Giants are down to their third quarterback, the New York Jets are banged up on the offensive line and a couple of wide receivers such as Christian Watson and Drake London are dealing with issues.

Let’s take a look at the injuries around the league. Below, we will break down the final injury report for “Thursday Night Football,” and discuss the first injury reports for the other 24 teams scheduled to play on Sunday here in Week 10.

Carolina Panthers at Chicago Bears (-3.5)

  • Panthers: EDGE Brian Burns (concussion/elbow), CB C.J. Henderson (concussion), WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (ankle), TE Stephen Sullivan (shoulder) OUT; WR DJ Chark (elbow) DOUBTFUL; S Xavier Woods (thigh), S Vonn Bell (quadriceps) LB Marquis Haynes (back) QUESTIONABLE

Carolina’s two safeties Xavier Woods and Vonn Bell are questionable, but both were at least limited participants in practice on Wednesday.

It appears Tyson Bagent will make another start for Chicago under center, as Justin Fields is doubtful with his dislocated thumb. Fields did return to practice, however, and was a limited participant all three days. Chicago will be down two other starters Nate Davis and Tremaine Edmunds, who did not practice at all this week. In what is good news, the three players listed as questionable (Josh Blackwell, Khalil Herbert, and Equanimeous St. Brown) were all full participants in practice all week. However, Herbert is not expected to play, per NFL Media.
