The Bears vs Bengals Game Day inactives have just been announced:

For the Bears, Marquess Wilson, CJ Wilson, Michael Ford, James Brown, Dante Rosario, David Bass and Zach Minter will not dress.

For the Bengals, WRs Dane Sanzenbacher & Ryan Whalen, CB Brandon Ghee, RB Rex Burkhead, G Mike Pollak, T Andrew Whitworth and DE Margus Hunt are inactive for the season opener.

There aren’t any big surprises for the Bears, as they came out of the preseason with a clean injury report.  It looks like DJ Williams will see action at middle linebacker, while Earl Bennett and Henry Melton come off their concussions just fine.

The big news is the Bears will go into the game with just two active running backs – Forte and Bush.   Marquess Wilson is not dressing, so Earl Bennett and Joe Anderson will get plenty of time at wide receiver.

For the Bengals, Offensive Tackle Andrew Whitworth sitting out means Anthony Collins will draw the tough assignment of blocking Julius Peppers.

Former Bears wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher will also miss the game.  He made headlines in the Bengals’ preseason opener with two long touchdowns.
