The Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49’ers are set to open up the new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on Sunday night, and while a lot of the focus this week has been on players like Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, there are plenty of other factors that are going to go into the game if the Bears want to be successful.

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images) The Chicago Bears held Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery out of practice all week long, and while a report Sunday morning indicated there was a 75 percent chance that both would sit out the game against the San Francisco 49′ers, news has come out that both players will be on the field:  The Bears ended up deciding to leave Josh Morgan off the field as he continues to recover from a groin injury, and he will be joined on the sidelines by Roberto Garza, who suffered a high ankle sprain against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, and Matt Slauson, who suffered the same injury.  OT Charles Leno Jr., DE David Bass, DT Cornelius Washington, and LB Khaseem Green round out the list of inactive players for the Bears.  The Bears will have a couple of new wide receivers on the field, as practice squad call-ups Josh Bellamy and Chris Williams are both active for the game.
