Bears vs Buccaneers Inactive List: RB Artavis Pierce will play for Chicago

NFL: Chicago Bears-Training Camp Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced their inactive list for today’s game.


S - Deon Bush
DB - Sherrick McManis
NT - Daniel McCullers
WR - Riley Ridley
OL - Arlington Hambright

In case you missed it, the Bears called linebacker Devante Bond up from the practice squad tonight. With Bush and McManis out they likely needed Bond’s special teams ability.

Also, this means that running back Artavis Pierce will make his NFL debut.


WR - Chris Godwin
WR - Justin Watson
RB - LeSean McCoy
WR - Josh Pearson
QB - Ryan Griffin
G - Aaron Stinnie
DL - Khalil Davis

Tom Brady will be missing a few weapons as he tries to attack the Bears D, but he’ll have wide our Mike Evans out there after being questionable with an ankle injury. We’ll need to see how effective he’ll be, but if healthy he’s a difference maker.

Same goes for Leonard Fournette, he’ll be active for the Bucs, but he’s been dealing with an ankle injury.
