CHICAGO -- Vikings receiver Percy Harvin sits out his second straight game because
of a sprained left ankle. He was hurt Nov. 4 at Seattle and missed the
Nov. 11 game against Detroit. The Vikings had a bye last week.
The 7-3 Chicago Bears are hosting the 6-4 Minnesota Vikings as the two teams continue to battle Green Bay for the NFC North crown.
The Bears have 30 takeaways already this season, tying them with New Orleans for the NFC lead. Vikings running back Adrian Peterson tops the league with 1,128 rushing yards, and has run for at least 100 in his last four games.
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will start after missing a game with a concussion.
Cutler was limited in practice this week. He left the game against Houston two weeks ago after a helmet-to-helmet hit by the Texans' Tim Dobbins and did not make the trip to San Francisco, where the Bears were blown out on Monday.
