Chicago’s list of inactives includes cornerback Terrance Mitchell, linebacker Darryl Sharpton, linebacker Lance Briggs, guard Eben Britton, defensive end Trevor Scott, receiver Chris Williams and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff. The club held out Ratliff all week because of a knee injury suffered last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Briggs left that same game with a groin injury.
Bears general manager Phil Emery said Thursday on the WBBM pre-game show that Briggs will be "out for an extended period of time."
Detroit’s inactive list includes quarterback Kellen Moore, running back Reggie Bush, offensive tackle Riley Reiff, guard Larry Warford, defensive end Larry Webster, receiver Ryan Broyles and defensive end Nick Fairley.
Bush missed the past three games with an ankle injury, and said he didn’t participate in the team’s loss to the New England Patriots last week because team doctors didn’t feel the running back was ready to take a full hit on the injured ankle. Bush said Tuesday that he expected to play.
Reiff, meanwhile, injured his ankle on the first play of Detroit’s loss to the Patriots. But he practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday. The full extent of Reiff's injury is not yet known.
