Eddie Goldman, Trey Burton both will play for Bears against Denver

Gene Chamberlain

The Bears go into Sunday's game with the Denver Broncos unencumbered by injuries to starters.

Nose tackle Eddie Goldman and tight end Trey Burton are active for the game after battling through injuries during the week of practice.

Burton worked out in warmups and was given to go-ahead to play for the first time this season after suffering a groin strain just prior to the start of the regular season.

Goldman had an oblique muscle strain during the week and missed Thursday's practice, but did practice Friday on a limited basis.

Both players had been questionable for the game.

Defensive back Sherrick McManis is a surprise inactive for the game. Other inactives for the Bears are running back Kerrith Whyte, wide receiver Riley Ridley, tight end J.P. Holtz, tackle Rashaad Coward, linebacker Josh Woods and cornerback Kevin Toliver.
