INDIANAPOLIS — Outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, who nursed a calf injury all week, won’t play Sunday against the Colts.

That leaves the Bears with only one first-round pick active — guard Kyle Long. Receiver Kevin White went on injured reserve with a broken fibula and high ankle sprain earlier this week, Kyle Fuller is on IR with a knee injury and Jay Cutler remains out with a sprained right thumb.

Eddie Royal, the Bears’ leading receiver last week, will play against the Colts. Royal didn’t practice all week because of a calf injury, and was one of 13 Bears players listed as questionable. Inside linebacker Danny Trevathan will play with a cast on his right thumb after undergoing surgery to repair the ligament less than three weeks ago. Tackle Charles Leno, who was sick, will play.

Other Bears who are inactive: safety Deon Bush, cornerback Deiondre Hall (ankle), running back Jeremy Langford (ankle), center Eric Kush and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle).

Floyd said Friday he expected to play.

“I’ll be all right for Sunday,” Floyd said. “It depends on just how the leg feels. Thumbs up, thumbs down. If [head trainer Nate Breske] gives me the green light, I’m going to go. If they don’t, I’m going to sit out.”
