LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- At least for now, it seems the Bears' newfound fortunes with injuries may continue.

Coach Matt Nagy provided the updated injury report Monday morning saying that both cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and rookie receiver Anthony Miller (left shoulder) are day-to-day with their respective injuries.

Amukamara left a 16-14 win against the Cardinals on Sunday with a hamstring injury but suggested he would be OK. The Bears replaced Amukamara with rookie Kevin Toliver, who was moved into an active role with Marcus Cooper also dealing with a hamstring injury. 

Miller suffered a dislocated shoulder early in the game and appeared to have it pop out in the fourth quarter. The team will have to be wise in monitoring Miller's health and pain tolerance, Nagy said.

"We leave that up the docs and (team trainer) and obviously talking to Anthony just to see and make sure that he’s explaining everthing that has happened and they can make their best evaluation possible," Nagy said. "We’ll have to see where that goes. You bviously want to be smart with those as you know that we will do."

Former NFL team doctor Dr. David J. Chao tweeted Sunday that Miller's injury could linger the entire season and may ultimately require surgery at some point. How the Bears handle that remains to be seen.

While many teams have a long list of injuries to key players, the Bears had only two players -- Cooper and safety DeAndre Houston-Carson -- listed on the game injury report last week.
