Bears: Harris in, Clark out

As they've done all season, the Chicago Bears made some interesting pregame decisions for Sunday night's matchup at the New York Giants:

  • Veteran tight end Desmond Clark was deactivated and is a healthy scratch for the first time in a Bears career that started in 2004. David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune notes Clark dropped a fourth-and-goal pass in Monday night's 20-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The Tribune's Brad Biggs notes that Clark has played only 14 offensive snaps this season, so the move probably is related to multiple factors.

  • Defensive tackle Tommie Harris was in uniform after the Bears surprisingly deactivated him for the Packers game. Meanwhile, reserve Marcus Harrison was back to inactive status.

  • Like Harris, receiver Devin Aromashodu was active after a one-week trip to the inactive list.
