EddieRoyal, the Bears’ leading receiver last week, will play against the Colts.Royaldidn’t practice all week because of a calf injury, and was one of 13 Bears players listed as questionable. Inside linebacker Danny Trevathan will play with a cast on his right thumb after undergoing surgery to repair the ligament less than three weeks ago. Tackle Charles Leno, who was sick, will play.

Other Bears who areinactive: safety Deon Bush, cornerback Deiondre Hall (ankle), running back Jeremy Langford (ankle), center Eric Kush and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle).

Floyd said Friday he expected to play.

“I’ll be all right for Sunday,” Floyd said. “It depends on just how the leg feels. Thumbs up, thumbs down. If [head trainer Nate Breske]givesme the green light, I’m goingto go. If they don’t, I’m going to sit out.”
