Marcus Cooper, Javon Wims among Bears inactive against Cardinals


Undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Kevin Toliver will make his NFL debut against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.

Veteran cornerback Marcus Cooper was ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury, and the Bears’ inactive list confirmed that Toliver will be dressing for Sunday afternoon’s game.

Also missing Week 3 is safety DeAndre Houston-Carson, who is still recovering from a broke forearm he suffered during the preseason.

Rookie draft picks Javon Wims and Kylie Fitts are once again inactive, while Bilal Nichols continues to get the nod on the defensive line over veteran Nick Williams.

Fullback Michael Burton is active this week after sitting out Monday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. Cooper’s absence and Burton’s return are the only difference from last week’s inactives list.

The Bears remain one of the healthiest teams in the NFL, and they’re looking to get out of Arizona once again unscathed.
