Lloyd out again

Even though he was a full participant in practice during the week, Brandon Lloyd is inactive for the fifth straight game with a sprained knee. Counting the bye week, Lloyd has now been sidelined for six weeks with what is considered a minor injury. Lloyd was injured on Sept. 28, against the Eagles at Soldier Field, and at the time he led the Bears with 15 catches and 249 receiving yards. The Bears' other inactives are linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (thumb), cornerback Marcus Hamilton, safety Terrence Holt, offensive tackle Fred Miller and defensive tackles Matt Toeaina and Anthony Adams. Kyle Orton (ankle) was the third quarterback but is not expected to play with Rex Grossman starting. Nick Roach will start in place of Hillenmeyer and Devin Hester again takes Lloyd's spot. Safety Danieal Manning returned to action after missing two weeks with a hamstring injury.
