DT Stephen Paea returns for Bears vs. Redskins
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Defensive tackle Stephen Paea is back for the Chicago Bears after missing two games with a turf toe in his right foot.
Paea is active for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins. Paea’s return was a boost for a defensive line that has lost tackles Henry Melton and Nate Collins for the season with injuries.
Cornerback Charles Tillman returns after missing one game with a knee injury. Tight end Martellus Bennett is active after being limited in practice throughout the week with a knee injury.
Redskins cornerback David Amerson is active after leaving the previous week’s game with a concussion. Tight end Fred Davis, who was expected to be a starter this season but has only three catches through five games, is inactive.
