HOUSTON (CBS) — The Bears’ offense will have a healthy complement of personnel for the opener, with guard Kyle Long (shoulder) set to play and receiver Kevin White (hamstring) in uniform for his NFL regular-season debut.
Long, who was awarded a four-year, $40-million contract extension this week, will play through a torn labrum, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Long has been limited in work the past three weeks.
White first appeared on the injury report Thursday, which would suggest that his injury occurred during practice. Bears coach John Fox declined to shed light on the nature of his injury.
Cornerback Kyle Fuller is out for the opener as he continues to recover from a knee scope. The Bears wouldn’t confirm who starts in his place.
Cre’Von LeBlanc, Deon Bush, Cameron Meredith, Nick Kwiatkoski, Will Sutton and Eric Kush are all inactive for the Bears.
The Texans’ inactives are Duane Brown, Brandon Weeden, Brennan Scarlett, Oday Aboushi, Keith Mumphery, K.J. Dillon and Joel Heath.
Kickoff between the Bears and Texans is at noon from NRG Stadium.
