As expected, the Bears have their veterans back in the starting lineup at cornerback, and first-round draft pick Chris Williams will be active for the first time in his career.
Charles Tillman and Nathan Vasher are both starting today against the Detroit Lions, relegating Corey Graham to a reserve role.
Strong-side linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer will miss the game following surgery on his right thumb and will be replaced by Nick Roach, who gets his first career start.
Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd will miss his fourth consecutive game with a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Lloyd, who has been out more than a month, was originally expected to miss two to four weeks.
Graham's playing time could come at nickel cornerback with Danieal Manning (hamstring) sidelined.
Williams takes the gameday roster spot of Fred Miller, who is inactive.
Also not active for the Bears:
3rd QB Caleb Hanie
S Terrence Holt
DT Matt Toeaina
DT Anthony Adams
