Jay Cutler has cleared the arduous new NFL concussion guidelines, and is expected to play Sunday. Lance Briggs says his ankle is a non-issue, and Chris Williams is expected to return to active duty after missing time with a pulled hamstring. The only Bear anticipated to remain inactive is rookie Major Wright, still recovering from hamstring issues of his own.
Meanwhile Seattle, coming off its bye week expects the return of Chester Pitts to left guard for the first time this year. He should be joined by Russell Okung at left tackle, who has been nursing a high ankle sprain that had kept him off the field until their last game against St. Louis, where he sat out the second half, with soreness.
That offensive line comes together just in time to welcome Marshawn Lynch, in his first game as a Seahawk. They'll be making their debut against a Bears defense that's giving up just 78.6 rushing yards a game.
