Bears safety Eddie Jackson is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Kansas City after sitting out practice all week.

The seventh-year pro from Alabama exited last weekend's loss to the Buccaneers in the second half with a foot injury.

Second-year pro Elijah Hicks is listed as Jackson's backup on the Bears' depth chart. The 2022 seventh-round pick from California played 56 snaps in Tampa and registered six tackles.

Right guard Nate Davis is questionable for Sunday's game. The five-year NFL veteran missed the Buccaneers contest and then sat out Thursday's practice due to personal reasons before being returning on a limited basis Friday.

The only other Bears player on the injury report is linebacker Khalid Kareem, who has been ruled out with a hip injury. Kareem was inactive in each of the first two games of the season.

Receiver Darnell Mooney (knee), center Lucas Patrick (illness) and cornerback Josh Blackwell (hamstring) all practiced in full Friday and were not given an injury designation.

Left tackle Braxton Jones will miss his first game since being selected by the Bears in the fifth round of last year's draft out of Southern Utah. After making 19 straight starts, Jones will miss a minimum of four games after being placed on injured reserve this week with a neck injury he sustained versus the Buccaneers.

Asked if third-year pro Larry Borom would start in place of Jones Sunday, coach Matt Eberflus said: "We're going to see where that is, but Borom has had a good week of practice. We'll see where it is for game time."

Last season Borom started the first seven games at right tackle before sustaining a concussion. The 2021 fifth-round pick from Missouri returned later in the year in a reserve role before opening two of the final three contests-at right tackle in Week 16 against the Bills and right guard in Week 18 versus the Vikings.

For the Chiefs, linebacker Nick Bolton (ankle) and receiver Richie James (knee) have been ruled out of Sunday's game; and receivers Kadarius Toney (toe), running back Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (quad) are questionable.
