Inactives: Injuries taking toll on Bears
On Sunday, their injuries further put a dent in their inactive list, as DT Stephen Paea (foot) and OL Chris Spencer (knee) were made inactive, along with QB Josh McCown and WR Dane Sanzenbacher. Paea is their starting nose tackle and was listed as questionable on Friday. Spencer was also questionable. Third-year pro Nate Collins will start for Paea, Nick Roach for Urlacher at Geno Hayes at Roach's normal strong-side position. Kelvin Hayden will start for Jennings.
Others on the Chicago injury report from Friday made it on the active list, including OL Gabe Carimi (hamstring), WR Devin Hester (concussion) and WR Alshon Jeffery (knee), who were all probable. Jeffery will start for Bennett.
While the Vikings placed Percy Harvin on injured reserve Wednesday, the rest of their injured players were declared probable.
The Vikings had a positive injury report Friday that transferred through to Sunday's inactives.
They made QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, CB Brandon Burton, LB Audie Cole, OL Troy Kropog, OL Mark Asper, TE Allen Reisner and DE D'Aundre Reed inactive.
Only CB Antoine Winfield was limited in Friday's practice with a knee injury, and all the players listed on the injury report were probable and are active – DE Jared Allen (shoulder/back), TE Kyle Rudolph (shoulder), LB Jasper Brinkley (shoulder), T Phil Loadholt (knee), C John Sullivan (ribs/knee) and Winfield.
