Barber Out for Sunday vs Atlanta Due to Calf Injury

Running back Marion Barber will miss Sunday’s game against the Falcons due to a left calf injury that has plagued him since the third preseason game.

Barber was ruled out by coach Lovie Smith on Friday after missing every practice this week.

With Barber out, the Bears will use third-year player Kahlil Bell as the backup to starter Matt Forte.

Defensive end Corey Wootton went through his first full practice since suffering a knee injury on the opening play of the first preseason game. He was listed as questionable, as was wide receiver Sam Hurd (ankle).
