SHARE 3rd round pick Bennett inactive again

How far behind is third-round draft pick Earl Bennett?

The wide receiver is inactive for today’s game with the St. Louis Rams, losing a roster spot to Brandon Rideau, who was officially promoted from the practice squad on Saturday.

Bennett has dressed for five games this season but has yet to have a reception. The Bears need another wide receiver today with veteran Marty Booker sidelined with a bone bruise in his knee.

In other moves, running back Kevin Jones is inactive for the second consecutive game to make room for more special teams help. Defensive tackle Anthony Adams is active for the first time in four games and is expected to be in the rotation on the line.

The Bears other inactives:

3rd QB Caleb Hanie

CB Marcus Hamilton

LB Darrell McClover

DT Matt Toeaina

DE Ervin Baldwin

The Rams inactives:

3rd QB Brock Berlin

CB Tye Hill

RB Steven Jackson

LB Chris Draft

G Roy Schuening

OT Anthony Davis

OT Orlando Pace

DE Eric Moore
