SHARE Bullocks to start at safety in place of Afalava

SAN FRANCISCO–Veteran Josh Bullocks will make his first start with the Bears as a right shoulder injury will sideline rookie strong safety Al Afalava.

Bullocks has been inactive the last two games, and has been used pretty much just on special teams when he has dressed. Kevin Payne, another option at safety, is also inactive as he has a back injury.

Bullocks was chosen over Craig Steltz, a fourth-round pick in 2008.

Wide receiver Devin Aromashodu is active for the game with running back Garrett Wolfe sidelined with a kidney injury.

Here are the Bears inactives: WR Juaquin Iglesias, S Al Afalava, RB Garrett Wolfe, S Kevin Payne, LB Pisa Tinoisamoa, G Lance Louis, DT Matt Toeaina, DL Jarron Gilbert
