QB Jay Cutler will start for the Chicago Bears, as reported Saturday after he was cleared to play following a concussion two weeks ago.
The Vikings weren't as fortunate with their injury news Saturday, as they officially declared Percy Harvin out with a sprained ankle. Harvin was among the inactives for the Vikings Sunday.
Also inactive for the Vikings were QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, CB Brandon Burton, LB Audie Cole, OL Mark Asper, TE Allen Reisner and DE D'Aundrae Reed
The Bears also declared WR Alshon Jeffery out last week. Joining him on Chicago's inactive list were QB Josh McCown, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, DT Matt Toeaina, DT Amobi Okoye, DE Cheta Ozougwu and OL James Brown.
