Neither Zach Miller nor Eddie Royal will dress for the Bears in their first exhibition game Thursday night against the Broncos.

They weren’t expected to, as they are in concussion protocol.

Other Bears who won’t suit up: receiver Derek Keaton (knee), tight end Ben Braunecker (ankle), outside linebacker Roy Robertson-Harris (ilness), center Hroniss Grasu (torn right ACL), guard Amini Silatolu (recovering from ACL surgery), tight end Greg Scruggs (bruised lung) and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee (PUP list with knee).

Notably, Alshon Jeffery will dress. It’s unclear if he’ll play; the wide receiver, who suffered a mild hamstring strain last week, was limited in practice Tuesday.
