Pisa Tinoisamoa missed last week’s game against the Miami Dolphins with a knee injury. And while the Bears’ didn’t skip a beat in the 16-0 shutout, this week presents a much bigger challenge.

The Bears are preparing for one of the most dynamic players in the league in Michael Vick. Having another athletic linebacker line Tinoisamoa would greatly improve the Bears’ defense. And while it’s still early in the week, Tinoisamoa is optimistic about playing on Sunday.

“I’m hopeful…Just going to take it one day at a time. I’ll practice Wednesday and see how it goes from there,” Tinoisamoa said.
