Greetings from Soldier Field. Just as we anticipated, defensive tackle Brandon Mebane could not get on the field today with the calf issue, so he's on the inactive list today. Kentwan Balmer will start in place of Mebane.
Chester Pitts also landed on the inactive list this morning, which was expected.
For Chicago, Lance Briggs (ankle) is on the inactive list today, which means Brian Iwuh will get the start at outside backer.
