Vasher sitting out

Cornerback Nate Vasher, who said after Friday's practice: “I expect to be out there 100 percent,” was 100 percent inactive on Sunday. Vasher suffered a dislocated thumb in Week Four but finished the game and then had a minor surgical procedure but returned to the practice field Friday after sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. “I had full practice and I’m looking forward to it,” Vasher said Friday of today's game at Detroit's Ford Field. Instead Corey Graham started in place of Vasher, as he had done in Week Three when the Bears preferred going with a bigger more physical lineup. The Bears' other inactives are wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (knee), defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, offensive tackle Chris Williams, guard Dan Buenning, safety Craig Steltz and quarterback Caleb Hanie. Tommie Harris was suspended for Sunday's game because of repeated tardiness. Because of Lloyd's injury and the recent release of Mark Bradley, rookie wide receiver Earl Bennett was active for the first time.
