GREEN BAY, Wisc. -- Bothered by an ankle injury the past few weeks, wide receiver Earl Bennett was inactive when the Chicago Bears (11-4) faced the Green Bay Packers (9-6) on Sunday at Lambeau Field.

With Bennett out, tight end Desmond Clark dressed for the first time since the Bears played Seattle on Oct. 17.

Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa was active Sunday, but Nick Roach started again for the Bears at strong side linebacker. It's unclear how much action Tinoisamoa will see, as the veteran is still working his way back from a right knee scope on Dec. 3.

Other Bears' inactives included: Caleb Hanie (3rd quarterback), Herman Johnson, Joshua Moore, Edwin Williams, Marcus Harrison, Kahlil Bell and Craig Steltz.
