The Chicago Bears held Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery out of practice all week long, and while a report Sunday morning indicated there was a 75 percent chance that both would sit out the game against the San Francisco 49'ers, news has come out that both players will be on the field: 

The Bears ended up deciding to leave Josh Morgan off the field as he continues to recover from a groin injury, and he will be joined on the sidelines by Roberto Garza, who suffered a high ankle sprain against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, and Matt Slauson, who suffered the same injury. 

OT Charles Leno Jr., DE David Bass, DT Cornelius Washington, and LB Khaseem Green round out the list of inactive players for the Bears. 

The Bears will have a couple of new wide receivers on the field, as practice squad call-ups Josh Bellamy and Chris Williams are both active for the game. Both players were with the Bears during training camp, but both were cut by the team before the campaign began.
