The Chicago Bears will take on the Detroit Lions in an NFC North divisional matchup in Week 17. Kickoff from Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan is set for 1 p.m. ET, and the game will air on Fox. While the Bears have been eliminated from the postseason, the Lions still have an outside chance of making it.
We don’t have the official inactives report yet as it is released an hour and a half before kickoff, but we know which players are definitely not playing. We will get the full list of inactives around 11:30 a.m. ET, but for now, here is what we know about players in question.
The Bears have already ruled out OL Ja’tyre Carter (back) and LB Sterling Weatherford (illness). Wide receiver Chase Claypool (knee), WR Dante Pettis (ankle) and TE Trevon Wesco (calf) are listed as questionable.
