The Bears will look to keep pace with the other NFC North teams tonight in Washington on Monday Night Football and they’ll do so with Cornelius Lucas starting at right tackle in place of the ill Bobby Massie.

For live updates of the game you can check here.

And keep in mind this is now an open thread (Rated WCG-MA) so the occasional F-Bomb may be dropped.


Here are the inactives for the Chicago Bears.

Kevin Toliver II - CB

Sherrick McManis - S

Kerrith Whyte Jr. - RB

Josh Woods - LB

Bobby Massie - Starting RT - Reports are that Massie is suffering from vertigo.

Riley Ridley - WR

Bilal Nichols - DL

Also kicker Eddy Pineiro may not kick field goals or kick off. Punter Patrrick O’Donnell could handle kickoffs.

And here are the inactives for Washington.

This is a Monday night match-up that the Chicago Bears should win. Simply put, Washington has a bad defense and that should be exactly what Chicago's struggling offense needs to get going.

It’s a prime time game, and we’re all aware of Mitchell Trubisky’s issues in those contests, but he has a perfect opportunity to silence some critics with a nice outing on Monday.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Bears week three match-up.
