SHARE Bears tight end Martellus Bennett will play vs. Ravens

Defensive end Shea McCellin is out. Tight end Martellus Bennett is in.

McClellin is inactive against the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field on Sunday. It’s the second game in a row he’ll miss with a hamstring injury.

Bennett was dealing with a sore ankle this past week at practice. But he was still expected to play against the Ravens.

As far as the other inactives for the Bears, there were no surprises. Quarterback Jay Cutler (ankle), linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) and long snapper Patrick Mannelly (calf) were ruled out earlier in the week, while offensive linemen James Brown and Jonathan Scott haven’t played all season.

The Ravens, though, will be without standout nose tackle Haloti Ngata and No. 2 receiver Marlon Brown.
