Bears vs. Falcons: Velus Jones Jr. will play in Week 11

The Chicago Bears announced their inactive players for Sunday’s Week 11 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, and rookie third-round pick Velus Jones Jr. wasn’t on it.

The first-year wideout will get his chance to get his rookie season on track after being inactive for the last two games.

Right guard Teven Jenkins is good to go against the Falcons, too. He was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

The most notable Bears player in street clothes against the Falcons is WR N’Keal Harry, who seems to have fallen out of favor since Chicago acquired Chase Claypool at the trade deadline.

The Falcons will be with most of their key starters Sunday, too.

Kickoff between the Chicago Bears and Atlanta Falcons is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. EST at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
