LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears first-team center Roberto Garza (high-ankle sprain), left guard Matt Slauson (high-ankle sprain) and wide receivers Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) were held out of Wednesday’s practice in advance of Week 2’s critical road game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Garza, Slauson and Jeffery were knocked out of the team’s 23-20 overtime loss to the Buffalo Bills, but Marshall did finish the game after he sustained his injury. Marshall ended with eight catches for 71 yards and one touchdown.
The veteran wideout spent part of his off-day on Tuesday receiving treatment before he traveled to New York to tape his weekly national television show.
Marshall is expected to play Sunday night against the 49ers.
However, Jeffery’s availability for the 49ers game is unknown. The wide receiver’s hamstring injury isn’t believed to be serious, but Jeffery was sidelined for the final 32 snaps last weekend.
On the offensive line, center Brian de la Puente and guard Michael Ola took the first-team reps at practice with Garza and Slauson unavailable.
Fullback Tony Fiammetta (hamstring) and quarterback David Fales (right shoulder) also missed Wednesday’s practice held inside the Walter Payton Center. Both Fiammetta and Fales were inactive in Week 1.
