The Chicago Bears acquired veteran Dontrelle Inman from the Los Angeles Chargers this week. The question is whether the receiver will be active for Sunday's tilt versus the New Orleans Saints.

"That's up to Coach, that's up to [general manager Ryan Pace]," said Inman, via the Chicago Sun-Times. "I'm ready. But it's totally up to them. If I'm ready and they think I'm ready, then I'll be out there."

With Inman not getting to town until Thursday, the Bears might be forced to wait a week to deploy the 6-foot-3, four-year pro. Inman brings experience and size to an otherwise mundane pass-catching corps. The 28-year-old caught 58 passes for 810 yards as a 16-game starter last season.

After being buried on the Chargers' depth chart, Inman could immediately become Mitchell Trubisky's top wide receiver.
