LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears have ruled out cornerback Tim Jennings for Sunday's game at Minnesota because of a shoulder injury and listed receivers Alshon Jeffery and Devin Hester as probable.

Jennings, the league leader with eight interceptions, was injured last week against Seattle. He was officially ruled out Friday, joining linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring) and receiver Earl Bennett (concussion) on the shelf.

Jeffery appears poised to return after sitting out the past two games with a knee injury. He went through a full practice Friday, as did Hester after missing a game with a concussion.

Running back Michael Bush (ribs), defensive tackle Stephen Paea (foot) and guard Chris Spencer (knee) are questionable. Offensive lineman Gabe Carimi (hamstring) is probable.
