CHICAGO (CBS) — Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan will miss his second straight game Sunday as he recovers from a calf strain.

Trevathan hasn’t played since suffering the injury three weeks ago in the game against the Saints. He also hasn’t practiced at all.

The Bears will also be without tight end Dion Sims, who’s still dealing with an undisclosed illness. Rookie Adam Shaheen should take on the leading role at tight end.

Bryce Callahan, Tom Compton, John Jenkins, Taquan Mizzell and Mark Sanchez are also inactive for the Bears. The Lions will be without top pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah, who’s dealing with a back injury.

Kickoff between the Bears (3-6) and Lions (5-4) comes at noon from Soldier Field.
