The New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears have released their final injury reports for the upcoming Monday Night Football matchup to close out Week 15. Two key Saints’ players are questionable heading into the game.

New Orleans Saints

LB Junior Galette (Knee) – Questionable

LT Terron Armstead (Neck) – Questionable

LB David Hawthorne (Hip) – Probable

DE Akiem Hicks (Ankle) – Probable

CB Keenan Lewis (Illness) – Probable

Galette and Armstead were limited in Saturday’s practice, while Hawthorne, Hicks, and Lewis were full participants.

Chicago Bears

S Chris Conte (Back) – Doubtful

LB Darryl Sharpton (Hamstring) – Injured Reserve

DT Jeremiah Ratliff (Knee) – Questionable

DE Cornelius Washington (Ankle) – Questionable

K Robbie Gould (Quad) – Questionable

T Michael Ola (Back) – Questionable

Conte, Sharpton, Ratliff, and Washington did not practice for the Bears, while Gould and Ola were limited in practice. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was already placed on injured reserve with fractured ribs and a collapsed lung sustained against the Dallas Cowboys.

Galette has not missed a game since the 2012 season, and would be likely replaced by undrafted rookie free agent Kasim Edebali if he were unable to go. Armstead would be replaced by Bryce Harris, who came in to relieve Armstead last week against the Carolina Panthers. Despite suffering an ankle injury in the game, Harris went the distance in Armstead’s absence.
