PHILADELPHIA -- In a surprise move, veteran Chicago Bears defensive tackle Anthony Adams was inactive for Monday night's 30-24 win against the Philadelphia Eagles after being in the starting lineup the previous two weeks.

Adams did not appear on the injury report, but appeared to have been the odd man out with fellow defensive tackle Matt Toeaina returning from a knee injury.

Toeaina was active following a two-game layoff.

Meanwhile, with Earl Bennett back after a five game absence, the Bears dressed all six wide receivers against the Eagles. While the Bears are heavy at wideout, the team went with only two running backs as third-stringer Kahlil Bell was inactive for the second time this season.

Other Bears' inactives included: quarterback Nate Enderle, defensive end Corey Wootton, right tackle Gabe Carimi, defensive end Mario Addison and linebacker Jabara Williams.

Wootton has now been inactive for seven of the Bears eight games in 2011.

The Eagles' inactives were: quarterback Mike Kafka; cornerback Curtis Marsh; safety Jarrad Page; guard Julian Vandervelde; tackle Winston Justice; defensive end Juqua Parker and defensive end Phillip Hunt.
