The Eagles announced that Ron Brooks will start at cornerback in place of the injured Leodis McKelvin and Brent Celek will start in place of Zach Ertz Monday night vs. the Bears.

Eagles Coach Doug Pederson had previously announced that McKelvin and Ertz would be out. Brooks will be making his fifth career start, and rookie Jalen Mills should also see plenty of snaps.

The absence of Ertz means extra work for Celek and Trey Burton.

Also inactive for the Eagles are wide receiver Bryce Treggs and four offensive linemen: Halapoulivaati Vaitai, Josh Andrews, Dillon Gordon and Isaac Seumalo.

Inactive for the Bears are defensive backs Deon Bush, Cre’von LeBlanc and Kyle Fuller, offensive lineman Eric Kush, wide receiver Cameron Meredith, linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski and defensive lineman Cornelius Washington
