New, comments

Some final information regarding the lineup ahead of the Bears vs Bucs game.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

One week after being benched for poor play, linebacker Christian Jones is back in the starting lineup for the Chicago Bears. Jones will start in place of Shea McClellin, who is inactive Sunday with a concussion. McClellin had delayed symptoms after last week's loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and the team decided on Sunday to have him sit this week.

Also inactive versus the Buccaneers is Alshon Jeffery, who misses his sixth game of the season with a leg injury. Jeffery is in a contract year, and it will be interesting to see how the Bears choose to approach things after the season is over.  Josh Bellamy will get the start at wide receiver in place of Jeffery.

The full list of inactives for Chicago:

- WR Alshon Jeffery

- LB Shea McClellin

- DB Bryce Callahan

- CB Jacoby Glenn

- G/T Nick Becton

- OT Tayo Fabuluje

- DL Bruce Gaston.
