Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota right tackle Artis Hicks is inactive for Sunday night's game against Chicago, meaning the Vikings will be forced back to Ryan Cook as their starter.

Hicks played well last week at Jacksonville after replacing Cook in the starting lineup, but a right elbow injury will keep him out of Sunday night's game. The Bears, meanwhile, will be without fullback Jason McKie (quadriceps) and receiver Marty Booker (knee).

Here is the complete inactive list:

CHICAGO
Quarterback Caleb Hanie
Running back Kevin Jones
Fullback Jason McKie
