There are no surprises on the inactives list for Sunday's tilt in Tennessee.
Bears rookie Wide Receiver Alshon Jeffery will miss his third straight game with a broken hand. After 184 yards receiving and two touchdowns through the first 5 games, Jeffery is "getting better," according to head coach Lovie Smith. Jeffery will likely miss a few more games though.
Bears wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher will also sit out on Sunday as the Bears continue to find ways to use Earl Bennett, who is playing his third game since missing two with a hand injury.
Guard Ed Williams and tight end Brody Eldridge are the other offensive players on the inactive list against the Titans.
On defense, the Bears are without defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, who has seen his playing time come to a complete halt since the up rise of second year player Stephen Paea. Amobi Okoye and Cheta Ozougwu are also inactive on the defensive line.
Across the field, the Titans are without quarterback Jake Locker, starting offensive guard Leroy Harris, backup tight end Byron Stingily, wide receiver Lavelle Hawkins. The Titan's defense will be missing linebackers Will Witherspoon and Patrick Bailey as well as defensive tackle DaJohn Harris.
