Tommie Harris inactive

CHICAGO -- We have a major pregame surprise here at Soldier Field. The Chicago Bears have deactivated defensive tackle Tommie Harris for Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Harris has suffered from knee injuries in recent years but was not on the injury report this week. That means this is a coaching decision, and a surprising one. Harris has only one tackle in two games this season but has been considered a central part of their nucleus. Third-year player Matt Toeaina will start in his place.

The Bears also deactivated receiver Devin Aromashodu.

Meanwhile, the Packers have left tackle Chad Clifton active and did not announce a change in their starting offense, so we're assuming Clifton will start with Daryn Colledge at left guard. Rookie Bryan Bulaga will probably play in some capacity, however.

Linebacker Brad Jones is inactive, and rookie Frank Zombo could start in his place.
