Bears to start Omiyale at RT, Louis at RG vs. Lions

Frank Omiyale kept his starting job at right tackle for Monday night's game against the Lions at Ford Field.

Omiyale, who was replaced by Lance Louis in the second of last week's game against the Carolina Panthers, will start at right tackle, with Louis replacing the injured Chris Spencer (broken right hand) at right guard.

Spencer still is active for the game. Wide receiver Earl Bennett (chest bruise) is inactive and will miss his third consecutive game. The Bears' other inactive players are right tackle Gabe Carimi, running back Kahlil Bell, defensive ends Corey Wootton and Mario Addison, defensive tackle Stephen Paea and quarterback Nate Enderle.

The Lions inactives are safety Amari Spievey, wide receiver Rashied Davis, quarterback Drew Stanton, safety Erik Coleman, running back Jerome Harrison, tackle Jason Fox and linebacker Justin Durant. Bobby Carpenter, who returned an interception for a touchdown in the Lion's comeback victory over the Cowboys last week, will start for Durant. John Wendling will start for Spievey at strong safety.
