NFL inactive list, Week 11: Alshon Jeffery active for Bears on Monday night

Sam Greenwood

The Chicago Bears are getting back wide receiver Alshon Jeffery on Monday night after weeks without the playmaking rookie.

The Chicago Bears have listed wide receiver Alshon Jeffery as active for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers, indicating that the rookie will be making his return to the field after weeks on the sideline. Jeffery, Chicago's 2012 second-round pick, has been sitting out since Oct. 7 with a hand injury.

While many big names are sitting out of Monday night's contest, including both starting quarterbacks, most of these absences had been expected for days. From Jay Cutler and Alex Smith to Shea McClellin and Brandon Jacobs, a good number of the inactives for Monday's game are relatively unsurprising.

Beyond McClellin, the Bears' defense will also be without nickelback D.J. Moore, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and defensive end Cheta Ozougwu. Moore has been dealing with a severe ankle sprain for over a week now, though he should be able to return somewhat soon.

In place of the two starting quarterbacks, the Bears will be starting Jason Campbell at QB while the 49ers hand the reins over to second-year pro Colin Kaepernick. Primarily a running quarterback, it'll be interesting to see whether Kaepernick can move the ball with any sort of efficiency against one of the game's great defenses.

The full inactive lists are below:


QB Jay Cutler
WR Dane Sanzenbacher
CB D.J. Moore
LB Shea McClellin
DT Matt Toeaina
OG Edwin Williams
DE Cheta Ozougwu


QB Alex Smith
RB Brandon Jacobs
WR A.J. Jenkins
RB LaMichael James
S Trenton Robinson
OG Joe Looney
DT Ian Williams
