Bears’ first-round pick Leonard Floyd will be inactive for the second-straight game Sunday against the Jaguars, while quarterback Jay Cutler remains out with a right thumb sprain.

Floyd did not practice Friday because of a calf injury, which had rendered him inactive last Sunday against the Colts. He suffered the injury in Game 4 against the Lions and did not play in the second half.

DeAndre Houston-Carson is inactive, too, meaning all six rookie defenders will have missed at least one game this season.

The other Bears inactives were expected: cornerback Deiondre Hall (ankle), running back Jeremy Langford (ankle), center Eric Kush and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle).

The Bears had 13 questionable players entering Sunday’s game, the same whopping number as last week.
