The Bears released their inactives list for Friday night's preseason game, and it features all the usual suspects:

Montgomery has turned heads since the Bears' opened training camp in July, and he was the most talked-about player in the aftermath of the Bears' preseason opener against the Panthers. Given that he'll be held out tonight, it looks like he might be RB1 when they open the regular season against the Packers on September 5th.  

With Cohen and Montgomery out -- and Mike Davis likely to be pulled quickly -- Friday night's carries will likely be split between Kerrith Whyte and Ryan Nall. The two are battling for what will likely be the fourth running back spot on the final 53-man roster.
