(670 The Score) The Bears once again have a light injury report, with only reserve safety Deon Bush ruled out against the Panthers on Sunday.

Bush is dealing with a hamstring injury, which kept him out of the Bears' win against the Buccaneers on Oct. 8. DeAndre Houston-Carson filled Bush's role, playing 20% of the Bears' defensive snaps in that game.

The Bears listed defensive end Brent Urban (knee), guard Alex Bars (shoulder) and defensive back Sherrick McManis (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday. Urban was limited in practice Friday, while Bars and McManis practiced in full.

Bars is a candidate to start at left guard Sunday after starter James Daniels was placed on injured reserve with a pectoral injury. Coach Matt Nagy declined to name a starter between Bars and Rashaad Coward.

The Bears also officially activated nose tackle John Jenkins (thumb) from injured reserve. He is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

The Panthers listed cornerback Eli Apple (hamstring), cornerback Donte Jackson (toe), defensive tackle Zach Kerr (toe) and receiver Curtis Samuel (knee) as questionable.

Kickoff between the Bears (4-1) and Panthers (3-2) comes Sunday at noon CT from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
