SHARE Adam Podlesh will punt for Bears in opener vs. Colts

Rookie punter Ryan Quigley heads the Bears’ list of inactive players for Sunday’s opener against the Indianapolis Colts. That means Adam Podlesh, recovering from a hip flexor injury, will punt today.

The other inactives are wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, rookie safety Jeremy Jones, guard Edwin Williams, defensive tackle Amobi Okoye and defensive end Cheta Ozougwu.

After a spate of injuries in the preseason, the Bears appear to be at full strength for their opener. Brian Urlacher (left knee) is expected to start at middle linebacker. Chris Conte (dislocated shoulder) is expected to start at free safety. And Stephen Paea (sprained ankle) has been announced as the starter at defensive tackle in front of last year’s starter, Matt Toeaina.
