Bears free safety Chris Conte, whom the club activated earlier this week, is one of 10 players who’s not suiting up for Thursday’s night’s game vs. Jacksonville, the team’s official Twitter feed said this evening.

Offensive guard Eben Britton, cornerback Isaiah Frey, right tackle Jordan Mills, tight end Dante Rosario, center/guard Brian de la Puente, safety Craig Steltz, wide receiver Chris Williams, wide receiver Marquess Wilson and defensive end Willie Young are also sitting for Chicago, the team said.

According to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears’ 10 inactives all have a known current injury save for Young, the former Lions defensive end.

The 25-year-old Conte, who’s vying to keep his starting spot, had shoulder surgery in the spring.

    Conte is better than any DB player on the Lions.

    Fact.

    Conte will not miss a tackle or drop an interception tonight… book it.

    Conte is still being punished for 4th and 18

    The Bears will probably end up 2nd in the division.

    Call me crazy but I don’t think the Jags will be bad this year.

    Based on what I’m seeing so far, nobody on the Bears is playing tonight. They look godawful in all 3 phases.

    I thought maybe Conte had turned the corner with that pick late in the game, but after 4th and 18. I’m sorry a fan of his I am not.

    Bears look like an 8-8 team again. Playing a bad team and can’t do anything right.

    I take it that none of you are bears fans, if you think conte is good you should take up a new sport….. Maybe curling

    The Packers love Conte, he ignores Cobb for game winning TD’s.

    I liked Conte better his first two years, he was flying around hammering people, even drawing flags and fines…but one could see he was playing and progressing. I have no idea what the hell that was last year. Awful from the start and then he tops it off with 4th and 18…a bad play, to go right along with the fumble that no one covered, or picked up that was run in for a TD…and the first string D didn’t look that hot last night.
