DETROIT (CBS) As expected, Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is active against the Lions and will play.

There were some surprises on the Bears’ inactive list, however. Defensive tackle Landon Cohen, who was just signed by the Bears Friday, is active instead of rookie Zach Minter. Meanwhile, rookie running back Michael Ford is active for his first game, while wide receiver Joe Anderson is inactive.

Special teamer Sherrick McManis (quad) is not active, as expected, and rookie C.J. Wilson will dress for his first career game in McManis’ place.

Here is the full list of inactives for the Bears and Lions:

Chicago Bears
WR Marquess Wilson
WR Joe Anderson
CB Sherrick McManis
OL James Brown
OT Jonathan Scott
DE David Bass
DT Zach Minter

Detroit Lions
WR Nate Burleson
QB Kellen Moore
RB Mikel Leshoure
OG Leroy Harris
OT Jason Fox
WR Patrick Edwards
DT D’Anthony Smith
