The Bears inactives are as follows:
G Matt Slauson
C Roberto Garza
WR Josh Morgan
OT Charles Leno
DE Cornelius Washington
DE David Bass
LB Khaseem Greene
The Bears will be without a couple of starters on the offensive line, but Brian de la Puente and Michael Ola looked good in replacing Slauson and Garza. It will be interesting to keep an eye on Marshall and Jeffery, especially Jeffery. Those hamstring injuries can be a little tricky and the Bears don’t want a minor injury to drag into a few week injury.
