LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- The Bears appear to be taking precautions with two players injured Sunday, holding out rookie receiver Anthony Miller (left shoulder) and cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) from practice Wednesday.

Coach Matt Nagy had previously indicated the two would be considered day-to-day and added during his media session prior to practice Wednesday that the statuses of both Miller and Amukamara would be up in the air. It remains to be seen what kind of work, if any, the two will do this week.

Miller suffered a dislocated shoulder early in a 16-14 win at Arizona, returning later before ultimately re-injuring it. It will be an injury the team has to monitor moving forward. Meanwhile, Amukamara suffered a hamstring ailment during the game, forcing him to leave action. The team replaced him with rookie cornerback Kevin Toliver, who struggled at times in his NFL debut.

The Bears (2-1) are also dealing with a hamstring injury to reserve cornerback Marcus Cooper, who suffered the injury last week. Cooper was inactive for the game in Arizona. He didn't practice Wednesday.

Safety and special teams piece DeAndre Houston-Carson returned to practice as a full participant. He had missed more than a month with a fractured forearm suffered in the preseason.

The Buccaneers (2-1), who visit Soldier Field on Sunday, listed defensive tackles Gerald McCoy (biceps) and Vita Vea (calf) among players limited in work Wednesday.
