Bears DT Harris out of game vs. Bengals with bad knee

CINCINNATI -- Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris was inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals after missing practice all week.

The Bears had announced that Harris, who has a sore left knee, likely would miss the game, along with running back Adrian Peterson, who also has a bad knee.

The Bears' linebacking unit was shuffled again because of Pisa Tinolsamoa's knee injury, with Hunter Hillenmeyer moving from middle to outside and Nick Roach starting in the middle.

The Bengals were missing safety Roy Williams for the second consecutive game because of a forearm injury. Linebacker Domata Peko, who sprained his left knee last week, was active and in the starting lineup.
