Knee injury sidelines Ravens’ Ngata for Bears game

Baltimore Ravens nose tackle Haloti Ngata was inactive for

Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears because of a left knee


Ngata was injured during last week’s overtime win over

Cincinnati and did not practice leading up to this game. Terrence

Cody started in his place.

The Bears were without defensive end Shea McClellin (hamstring)

and long snapper Patrick Mannelly (calf) along with quarterback Jay

Cutler (ankle) and linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder), who were

both ruled out earlier in the week.

Tight end Martellus Bennett was active after being listed as

questionable with an ankle injury.
