Bears will be without three offensive starters for MNF vs. Chargers

No real surprise after a week of not practicing, but running back Matt Forte, center Hroniss Grasu and wide receiver Eddie Royal have all been ruled out of Monday’s game at San Diego, officially placing rookie running back Jeremy Langford as the starter in the backfield of a team committed to win by running.

Forte and Royal are down because of knee injuries suffered in the loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Grasu injured his neck several weeks ago and missed Week 8 against the Vikings, as he was replaced by guard Matt Slauson.

Nickel cornerback Bryce Callahan has been fully cleared under the NFL’s concussion protocol.
