Both starting corners out

Both starting cornerbacks – Charles Tillman (shoulder) and Nate Vasher (wrist) – are inactive today, as is safety Daniel Manning (hamstring), the Bears' nickel back. That leaves the Bears with Corey Graham and Trumaine McBride as the starting cornerbacks and only Marcus Hamilton and Zackary Bowman as backups. Hamilton, a first-year player, has been with the team less than a month since being cut by the Bucs. Bowman, a fifth-round draft pick this season, was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week. This is the third straight game Vasher has missed, even though he's been practicing for the past two weeks. He missed 12 games last season with a groin injury. The Bears' other inactives are linebacker Nick Roach, offensive tackle Chris Williams, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (sprained knee). It was also the third straight game that Lloyd has missed.
