LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- The Bears limited four key players during practice Thursday, but none are in serious jeopardy of missing Chicago's game at Washington on Monday night.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Guard Kyle Long (hip), safety Eddie Jackson (shoulder), defensive lineman Eddie Goldman (oblique) and tight end Trey Burton (groin) were each officially listed as limited in work Thursday afternoon at Halas Hall. It was a matter of maintenance and not a worry heading into Monday, coach Matt Nagy said.

"Nothing of concern," Nagy added.

The issues for Long and Jackson stemmed from Chicago's win in Denver on Sunday, Nagy said. Goldman suffered his oblique injury during practice last week. Burton made his season debut this past Sunday after experiencing the groin strain in late August.

The Bears have said defensive lineman Bilal Nichols is expected to miss the game Monday after suffering a broken right hand in Denver. However, the team is hopeful he won't land on injured reserve.

Final injury reports will be revealed Saturday afternoon.
