Kevin Jones inactive; Hillenmeyer back today

SHARE Kevin Jones inactive; Hillenmeyer back today

Running back Kevin Jones, who has gotten just two carries the last two games, will not be active today. Jones is not injured although he did miss one practice this past week for personal reasons and was excused.

Linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer is active after missing two games following surgery on his right thumb. Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd will play for the first time since Sept. 28 when he injured his left knee.

Hillenmeyer will not have his starting job back though. Nick Roach starts on the strong side.

The Bears’ remaining inactives:

3rd QB Caleb Hanie

CB Marcus Hamilton

OT Fred Miller

DT Matt Toeaina

DT Anthony Adams

DE Ervin Baldwin
