Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears: Inactive Lists for Both Teams

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We're ninety minutes away from kickoff at Soldier Field in Chicago, ladies and gentlemen. That means that both the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears have released their inactive lists for this afternoon's contest. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out for both teams, starting with the visitors.

Minnesota Vikings

LB Audie Cole
Nick Easton
TE Rhett Ellison
DT Sharrif Floyd
QB Taylor Heinicke
Jeremiah Sirles
DE Justin Trattou

Four of the players on the inactive list for Minnesota (Cole, Ellison, Floyd, and Trattou) were listed as "out" on Friday's injury report, so there's no surprise there. Tom Johnson will start again in Floyd's place, and MyCole Pruitt figures to get more snaps at tight end today with Ellison out. Chase Ford is active for the first time all season as well.

And now, on to the home team.

Chicago Bears

OT Jermon Bushrod
RB Ka'Deem Carey
DT Bruce Gaston
Hroniss Grasu
LB Shea McClellin
WR Cameron Meredith
CB Terrance Mitchell

Grasu being deactivated for the Bears means that they will start Matt Slauson at center. The Bears will also be starting our old friend Vladimir Ducasse at left guard this afternoon. . .that should be a plus for the Vikings.

And that's a look at who has been deactivated for the Vikings and Bears for this afternoon's contest, folks. We'll have the Open Thread up and running for you at 11:00 AM Central time.
