The Bears will face their fourth backup quarterback in only five games this season as they take on the Miami Dolphins.

Starter Ryan Tannehill was among the inactives for the game due to a shoulder injury. Former Denver Broncos quarterback pick Brock Osweiler will take his place, and former Bears sixth-round pick David Fales will be his backup.

The Dolphins will also be without star defensive end Cameron Wake, who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

On the other side, Chicago’s inactives list revealed a healthier Bears team than expected. Cornerback Prince Amukamara, rookie wide receiver Anthony Miller, and left guard Eric Kush are all active despite appearing on the injury report this week.

Cornerback Marcus Cooper is the only Bears player sidelined due to injury.

Seventh-round pick Javon Wims is back to being inactive after getting the bump up two weeks ago against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but outside linebacker Isaiah Irving is active now that Sam Acho is on injured reserve.


Close to a full-strength Chicago team is taking on a banged-up Dolphins team. This has the potential to go quite poorly for Miami.
