With the Chicago Bears' 2011 season all but over, it seemed possible that the Bears would give some playing time in Week 17 to rookie back up QB Nathan Enderle. But Chicago ended any speculation early on Sunday by placing Enderle on the team's inactive list for the week, meaning that Josh McCown will take all snaps under center today barring injury.
The Bears will also be without the services of Marion Barber III, who has been battling a calf injury for the latter part of the season. Barber's absence opens the door for Khalil Bell to once again show that he may have the ability to be a feature back in the NFL.
Here is the full inactive list for the Bears:
- RB Marion Barber III
- QB Nathan Enderle
- OT Levi Horn
- DT Jordan Miller
- TE Andre Smith
- DE Corey Wooten
- OG Mansfield Wrotto
