(670 The Score) On its daily 5 at 5 segment Tuesday morning, the Mully & Haugh crew debated a variety of questions.

-- Which injured Cubs player is most likely to have an impact down the stretch: third baseman Kris Bryant with his sore knee, infielder Addison Russell with a concussion or closer Craig Kimbrel with his elbow inflammation?

-- Should the Cubs have called up shortstop and top prospect Nico Hoerner sooner?

-- Bryant has now explained he wants to play at "100 percent" health and anything less is a "complete disservice" to Cubs fans. Should he be applauded for trying to play through his knee injury or criticized for not being more forthcoming about his health?

-- Radio.com Sports MLB insider Jon Heyman mentioned on his Big Time Baseball podcast that Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein could be linked to the Red Sox's president of baseball operations opening after the firing of Dave Dombrowski. Are you buying that?

-- What did you think of the coaching debut of the Broncos' Vic Fangio? How will the Bears match up against their former defensive coordinator Sunday?
