LAKE FOREST, Illinois — Chicago Bears star receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery were listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the New York Jets while four starters were ruled out.

Marshall (ankle) and Jeffery (hamstring) were limited participants in Saturday's workout. Both played through their injuries last week in a win at San Francisco after getting hurt in the season-opening loss to Buffalo.

Starting center Roberto Garza and left guard Matt Slauson remain sidelined by ankle injuries after missing last week's game, but the Bears will also have to do some juggling on defense after defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion) and Shea McClellin (hand) were ruled out.

Brian de la Puente and Michael Ola filled in for Garza and Slauson last week. With Ratliff out, the Bears figure to lean more on rookies Ego Ferguson and Will Sutton.

Jonathan Bostic figures to start at strong side linebacker with McClellin sidelined.

The Bears also ruled out backup cornerback Sherrick McManis.
