Lovie Smith reported during his weekly interview on Bears Game Day Live on Fox that all three players who were listed as questionable on the injury report — Brandon Lloyd, Danieal Manning, and Hunter Hillenmeyer — will not play today.
Filling in for Hillenmeyer at linebacker will be Nick Roach. Jamar Williams could see some action there, too.
With Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher returning to the lineup, the Bears will move Corey Graham to the nickelback position.
As for rookie offensive tackle Chris Williams, he will dress today and Smith confirmed that he will play on some special teams, namely the field goal and possibly field goal block teams.
