Bears injuries again.pngFor better or worse, the Bears will look like a different team Sunday from the one that lost to the Packers 23-10 in Week 2 at Lambeau Field.

Cornerback Tim Jennings, linebacker Brian Urlacher, defensive tacke Henry Melton, wide receiver Earl Bennett, defensive end Shea McClellin and linebacker Geno Hayes are inactive with injuries for Sunday's game. With Lance Louis previously on injured reserve, the Bears will be without 11 players from the previous game, including six starters. Only 11 players will start today in the same position they played in Week 2.

Even the subs can't stay healthy. With Hayes out with a knee injury, Blake Costanzo will start at strong-side linebacker against the Packers. A special-teams stalwart, Costanzo will be making his first start in 75 NFL games over his six-year career.

With Melton's absence, Israel Idonije will start at defensive tackle. Kelvin Hayden will start for Jennings for the second consecutive game. Alshon Jeffery will start for Bennett.
