CHICAGO – The Chicago Bears hope to reach the .500 mark and inch closer to an outside chance at the playoffs Sunday when they host the San Francisco 49ers.

The Bears (5-6) are coming off a thrilling Thanksgiving win against the Green Bay Packers, Jay Cutler’s first ever at Lambeau Field with Chicago. The 49ers (3-8) are in the midst of another disappointing season, having put their starting quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, on injured reserved after he was hurt and benched.

Blaine Gabbert has taken over as quarterback for San Francisco.

Bears wide receiver Eddie Royal (knee) is out for Sunday’s game. Tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs) will play.

Kickoff is at noon central.
