Cornerback Nathan Vasher will miss his second consecutive game as he heads the list of inactives for the Bears.
Vasher had a pin inserted in his right wrist less than two weeks ago and the decision is curious because coach Lovie Smith said Friday that Vasher would be available to play. If that's the case, he was deemed not needed for this game. Vasher also said Friday he expected to play. Corey Graham will start in his place again.
Defensive tackle Anthony Adams is also inactive with Tommie Harris taking his place.
The other inactives:
3rd QB Caleb Hanie
LB Nick Roach
G Dan Buenning
OT Chris Williams
DT Matt Toeaina
WR Brandon Lloyd
This also means rookie safety Craig Steltz will be active for the first time this season.
For Atlanta, WR Roddy White will play. He missed most of practice this past week with a head injury.
