Bears outside linebacker Robert Quinn is officially listed as inactive for the team’s Week 1 game Sunday at Detroit. The free agent signing will not play in the season opener.
Quinn has been dealing with an ankle injury this week. He did not practice Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Also inactive for Sunday’s game is CB Duke Shelley, LG Arlington Hambright, TE Eric Saubert, WR Riley Ridley and DE Mario Edwards Jr.
Detroit WR Kenny Golladay is inactive for the Lions. Golladay has been hampered by a hamstring injury. First-round draft pick CB Jeff Okudah is also inactive for Detroit.
Quinn had previously missed part of training camp for a personal reason, and then was limited in camp as he ramped up into football shape.
Bears coach Matt Nagy said this week that Quinn’s current ankle injury has nothing to do with his previous absence during training camp.
The Bears signed Quinn to a five-year, $70 million free agent contract over the offseason. They envisioned a one-two punch of pass-rushing outside linebackers in Quinn and Khalil Mack.
