Gaines Adams not expected to play tonight

Even though he traveled with the Bears to Atlanta, newly acquired defensive end Gaines Adams is not expected to play tonight.

According to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, it’s looking like Adams will be unveiled by the Bears next week against the Bengals.

Adams, acquired this week in a deal with Tampa in exchange for a second-round pick in 2010, is looking like the successor to 32-year-old Adewale Ogunleye in Chicago. Ogunleye’s deal expires at the end of the year.
