Chris Harris to start; Wright inactive with hip injury

A week after being benched for Major Wright, Chris Harris will be back in the starting lineup for the Bears as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Wright suffered a hip injury this week during practice and will be unable to go today. Wright already has missed seven games since being drafted by the Bears in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Rookie Chris Conte will get his second straight start at the safety spot, opposite Harris.


Other Bears’ inactives include: Quarterback Nate Enderle, wide receiver Earl Bennett, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, right tackle Gabe Carimi, defensive end Corey Wootton and defensive end Mario Addison.


Both Bennett and Carimi are expected to return after the bye week when the Bears take on Philadelphia on Nov. 7.
