The reason for the same was due to ankle and knee injuries, respectively. Bolton briefly left the Chiefs’ Week 2 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars after suffering his injury, while James also suffered an injury in Jacksonville’s game and didn’t practice all week, raising doubts about his availability for the Bears game.
