MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Chad Greenway is inactive for Minnesota because of a knee injury, leaving the Vikings without two starting linebackers against Chicago.

Greenway's backup, Brandon Watts, is out with a hamstring injury, and Anthony Barr was placed on injured reserve this week. Linebacker Josh Kaddu was promoted from the practice squad to fill in. Gerald Hodges and Audie Cole are starting at the outside spots Sunday. Andrew Sendejo is starting for Robert Blanton at strong safety.

Also inactive for the Vikings: safety Ahmad Dixon, cornerback Shaun Prater, running back Henry Josey, tackle Carter Bykowski and guard David Yankey.

For the Bears, quarterback Jimmy Clausen (concussion), kicker Robbie Gould (quadriceps), safety Chris Conte (back), cornerback Al Louis-Jean (hamstring), tackle Charles Leno, defensive tackle Brandon Dunn and defensive end Austen Lane are inactive.
