Bears NT Eddie Goldman (ankle) questionable for New York

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Chicago Bears starting right tackle Bobby Massie (concussion) is doubtful and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) is questionable for Sunday’s game at New York.

Veteran Mike Adams, who started 20 games for Pittsburgh from 2012-2014, is expected to replace Massie at right tackle.

Coach John Fox said earlier in the week that he was hopeful that Massie would pass the NFL’s concussion protocol, but Massie missed all three days of practice. He suffered the concussion in last Sunday’s 36-10 loss at Tampa.

Goldman sat out six weeks due to a high ankle sprain but returned to play versus the Bucs. However, Goldman re-injured the ankle and skipped practice on Wednesday and Thursday before the Bears listed him as having limited participation in Friday’s walk thru workout.

A 2015 second-round pick out of Florida State, Goldman had 4.5 sacks as a rookie.

Also doubtful to face the Giants: defensive lineman Mitch Unrein (back) and cornerback Deiondre Hall (ankle).

Besides Goldman, the Bears list seven other players as questionable – receiver Eddie Royal (toe), receiver Marquess Wilson (foot), guard Josh Sitton (ankle), linebacker Pernell McPhee (knee), linebacker Willie Young (ankle), cornerback Bryce Callahan (hamstring) and cornerback Tracy Porter (knee).

Most of the questionable players are expected to be active on Sunday.
