The Chicago Bears are about to take on the Miami Dolphins at Soldier Field and several players are out for the game. There is one surprising name on this list that comes as a healthy scratch. Furthermore, on Miami's sidelines, their new defensive star is in for his debut with his new team.

Chicago Bears Inactives

After a rough start to his NFL career, Chicago Bears rookie wide receiver, Velus Jones Jr., is out for Sunday's game against Miami. There isn't anything wrong with the speedy wideout from Tennessee, other than his questionable play of late, but the Bears ruled him out as a healthy scratch.

Offensive linemen Ja'Tyre Carter and Alex Leatherwood are out for this game, as expected. The Bears recently added Carter to the injury report as he was dealing with an illness and Leatherwood is still working his way back into shape to make his Chicago debut.

But at least the Bears got Cody Whitehair back to put forth their best possible offensive line.
