Barber, Harris, Wright Out For Bears-Packers

(CBS) Craig Steltz will start at strong safety for the Bears Sunday against the Packers as Chris Harris has officially been ruled out.

Brandon Meriweather will start in place of Major Wright at free safety as well.

Also, as expected, Bears running back Marion Barber will miss Sunday’s contents between the Bears and Packers with a calf injury.

Barber, who was officially listed as questionable, has yet to play in a regular season game for the Bears since signing as a free agent in the off-season.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports the Bears are hopeful Barber will return in Week 4.

Gabe Carimi, Earl Bennett, Stephen Paea and Corey Wootton are also inactive for the Bears.

For the packers, running back Alex Green, cornerback Davon House, safety Nick Collins, linebacker Frank Zombo, offensive tackle Derek Sherrod, defensive end Mike Neal and linebacker Vic So’oto are also inactive.
