Bears Vs. Vikings: Chicago CB Tim Jennings To Start Against Minnesota

Zackary Bowman's time with the starting defense proved quite short-lived. According to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Bears 27-year-old cornerback will move back to the nickel package in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Bears will instead start 28-year-old Tim Jennings ahead of the younger Bowman, returning the Bears 4th-leading tackler, Jennings, to the starting defensive lineup. After the Bears benched Jennings in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers, QB Aaron Rodgers took advantage of Bowman's inexperience, throwing several touchdowns against the fourth-year pro en route to a 5 passing TD game.

Jennings, currently in his sixth year in the league, has 1 interception and 9 pass deflections in his second year as a the Bears' starting cornerback.
