Bears/Raiders pre-game notes

The official inactive lists for the Bears and Raiders have been submitted. We take a look at a few noteworthy roster decisions for both teams.

Bears Inactives
QB Jay Cutler, QB Josh McCown, G Ricky Henry, CB D.J. Moore, TE Andre Smith, DT Anthony Adams, LB Jabara Williams

Raiders Inactives
WR Jacoby Ford, WR Denarius Moore, RB Darren McFadden, DE Jarvis Moss, QB Jason Campbell, RB Taiwan Jones, G Bruce Campbell

-With McCown inactive, that puts Nathan Enderle as the only backup QB. God help the Bears if Hanie gets hurt.

-Hanie spent extra time in warm ups throwing to TE Kellen Davis. Expect a lot of quick passes to tight ends and backs today to get Hanie in a groove.

-Hester active, probably won't play on offense. Will Raiders kick to him? Raiders P Shane Lechler as good as they come. My guess is they'll be conservative.

-Bears have eight defensive linemen active. Expect a lot of rotating in anticipation of a heavy rushing attack by Raiders.

-Anthony Adams sitting. He hadn't been playing that badly the past few games. Matt Toeaina and Stephen Paea will rotate at NT. Lovie hasn't been happy with defensive line of late.

-DE Chauncey Davis is active for first time this season. He should get plenty of reps today. As will DE Corey Wootton. Both have an opportunity to take over the No. 3 DE spot.

-Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (neck) is active but will likely be limited. DE Richard Seymour active but not 100 percent. He'll only be used on third downs.

-K Sebastian Janikowski still dealing with a hamstring injury but was dropping 53-yarders, that would have been good from 60, in warm ups.
