The Bears have an off week, giving injured players a time to rest.
Receiver Johnny Knox injured his right shin and Adrian Peterson suffered a right knee injury.

Smith said Knox should be fine. Peterson's status is being evaluated.

Defensive lineman Israel Idonije had his left knee scoped Monday and Smith called it a minor procedure.

"We feel pretty good about him coming back quickly,'' Smith said of Idonije. ``We'll see how it goes. Pretty tough guy. He'll be back out there before long.''

Idonije and Peterson are key figures on special teams. Smith did not announce any immediate plans to fill their roles.
