(670 The Score) The Bears prioritized health ahead of the regular season, and that remains steady for their Week 2 matchup at Soldier Field.

There are no key starters inactive as the Bears battle the Seahawks in a Monday night meeting, with only one injured player inactive. The Bears' inactives include safety DeAndre Houston-Carson (forearm), fullback Michael Burton, outside linebacker Isaiah Irving, outside linebacker Kylie Fitts, tackle Rashaad Coward, receiver Javon Wims and defensive lineman Nick Williams.

Starting right guard Kyle Long missed two practices during the week managing ankle soreness but returned to work Saturday and was never in doubt of missing this game. 

Meanwhile, the Seahawks have already dealt with a number of injuries to key players as reflected with their inactives. Seattle is without receiver Doug Baldwin, linebacker Bobby Wagner, linebacker K.J. Wright, cornerback Tre Flowers, guard D.J. Fluker, guard Jordan Simmons and safety Delano Hill.

Kickoff between the Bears (0-1) and Seahawks (0-1) comes at 7:15 p.m. CT from Chicago.
