Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery inactive for Bears

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Receivers Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffery are inactive for the Bears, which means Dane Sanzenbacher should get on the field today against the Seattle Seahawks.

Sanzenbacher, who was active for all 16 games last season as a rookie and started one, has been active for only three games this season, the last Oct. 22 against the Detroit Lions. Dane Sanzenbacher.jpg

The other Bears inactives are : quarterback Josh McCown, cornerback D.J. Moore, guard Chris Spencer, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and defensive end Cheta Ozougwu.

For the Seahawks, starting outside linebacker Leroy Hill and nickel cornerback Marcus Trufant are inactive. Starting defensive end Red Bryant, who had been listed as questionable, is active for the Seahawks.

Undrafted out of Ohio State, Sanzenbacher ended up being pressed into a lot of action in 2011. He had 27 catches for 276 yards and three touchdowns.

Jeffery had a knee scope after the 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers Nov. 19. Before today's game, he was conditioning and even caught a few passes, although he looked limited in his movement. The initial timetable was two to four weeks, which means he's inching closer to a return.

Another game in which D.J. Moore was in active and in which they could have used him. I have nothing against the starting safeties and corners, but they would lose little by substituting Moore,and he could keep others fresh, plus provide a good blitzer to the mix.
