Some news and notes, courtesy of Bob LeGere over at the Daily Herald:
* Free safety Danieal Manning reclaims his starting job at free safety when the Chicago Bears take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend. Manning’s recovery from a hamstring injury will be welcome in a Bears’ secondary that will have to face quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 363 yards last week.
* Although Nick Roach will start Sunday’s game in place of injured Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) at strong side linebacker, he’ll split reps with Jamar Williams.
* Tight end Desmond Clark (ribs) is also out this week, but defensive tackle Tommie Harris (knee), Al Afalava (shoulder), guard Frank Omiyale (ankle), defensive end Mark Anderson (toe) and Danieal Manning are all listed as “probable” and will play.
