Hester, Pace can't play for Bears; Pickett out for Packers

The Chicago Bears listed wide receiver/kick returner Devin Hester and veteran offensive tackle Orlando Pace as inactive for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Hester injured his calf during last week's victory over the St. Louis Rams. Pace now has missed second consecutive games with a groin injury.

Hester, who leads the Bears with 54 receptions, was replaced at wide receiver by Devin Aromashodu. Chris Williams shifted to left tackle for the second consecutive game in place of Pace. Kevin Shaffer started at right tackle, where Williams normally plays.

Nose tackle Ryan Pickett, the veteran run stuffer of Green Bay's defense, was inactive Sunday after he pulled his hamstring while chasing Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco late in the Packers' Monday night victory. B.J. Raji was scheduled to start in Pickett's place.
