Roy Williams returns, Marion Barber expected to be out for Bears

The Bears will get a starting receiver back into the lineup Sunday.  And that may not necessarily be good news.

Chicago will get Roy Williams back into the lineup against the Packers, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network. That may reduce the snaps for Johnny Knox.

In other Bears injury news, Marion Barber is expected to miss his third straight game despite returning to practice on Friday.

La Canfora also reports that rookie tackle Gabe Carimi could return much sooner than the original one month estimate from his knee injury. Carimi may have a shot to return next week.
