Te’o hasn’t suited up since the team’s last monday night game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 12.
Joining Te’o on the sidelines will be left tackle King Dunlap with an ankle injury suffered in last week’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Dunlap missed three games earlier this season due to a concussion.
Good news on the injury front for the Chargers is that tight end Antonio Gates is listed as probable as he continues to nurse a knee injury. He will be relied on heavily without Keenan Allen, who was placed on the season-ending injured reserve with a kidney injury last week, and without fellow tight end Ladarius Green who is listed as doubtful for this week.
Other inactive players for the Chargers are offensive lineman Chris Watt and linebacker Denzel Perryman.
Also unlikely to play is guard Orlando Franklin who is listed as doubtful with a knee injury. He has only been able to play in four games so far in his first season with the Chargers.
Inactive for the Bears will be running back Matt Forte and former Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal.
Here’s a full breakdown of the Chargers injury report:
