Bears Week 3 Inactives: No Jaylon Johnson vs. Texans

The Chicago Bears defense received good and bad news with the list of inactive players for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Linebacker Roquan Smith will play despite a hip injury that had his status in doubt this week. Cornerback Jaylon Johnson, meanwhile, is out with a quad injury.

Here’s the complete list of Bears inactives, including rookie wide receiver Velus Jones Jr., who’ll have to wait another week to make his NFL debut:

  • WR Velus Jones Jr.
  • CB Jaylon Johnson
  • OL Ja’Tyre Cater
  • CB Dane Cruikshank
  • LB Matt Adams
  • TE Ryan Griffin

The Texans are healthier for Sunday’s showdown but still have a handful of players who won’t suit up:

  • TE Brevin Jordan
  • WR Tyler Johnson
  • DB Isaac Yiadom
  • LB Jake Hansen
  • OL Austin Deculus
  • DL Kurt Hinish
