The Bears didn’t have many guys on their injury report this week, though defensive tackle Akiem Hicks and right guard Kyle Long are on Injured Reserve, and their lineup will be mostly intact against the Chargers.

Here are today’s inactives for the Bears:

OL Alex Bars
TE Bradley Sowell
WR Riley Ridley
CB Duke Shelley
LB Josh Woods
LB Kevin Pierre-Lewis
DL Brent Urban

Also, the Chargers have some significant absences. Here are their inactives:

QB Easton Stick
RB Justin Jackson
LB Jatavis Brown
DT Cortez Broughton
DT Justin Jones
NT Brandon Mebane
K Michael Badgley

The most significant news for the Chargers is that wide receiver Keenan Allen will play through a hamstring injury. He has 44 catches for 564 yards and three touchdowns this season.

The absence of Jones and Mebane, both starters, sets up well for the Bears’ intent to re-ignite their running game after a disastrous game against the Saints.

The Chargers also got left tackle Russell Okung back. He has been out all season because of a medical issue.
