CHICAGO (AP) — Bears tight end Trey Burton is inactive for Chicago's playoff game against Philadelphia after he was a late add to the team's injury report.
The NFC North champion Bears announced Burton's groin injury Saturday night, and they listed him as questionable.
The 27-year-old Burton spent his first three NFL seasons with the Eagles. He signed a $32 million, four-year contract with Chicago in March.
Burton set career highs with 54 receptions for 569 yards and six touchdowns this season.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles turned to a familiar face to bolster their depleted receivers corps.
The defending Super Bowl champions signed wide receiver Jordan Matthews on Wednesday, reuniting him with close friend Carson Wentz in time for the quarterback's return from injury.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Drop back. Throw long. Repeat.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was flinging the ball far downfield Thursday during a voluntary offseason training practice, targeting an array of receivers that includes newcomers Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead.
"Someone kind of joked that we completed more deep balls in practice today when we did the whole offseason last year," coach John Harbaugh said.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed on a one-year contract with wide receiver Mike Wallace.
The 31-year-old Wallace spent the past two seasons in Baltimore and had 52 catches for 748 yards and four touchdowns last year. The deal announced Thursday is reportedly worth up to $4 million.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens never expected to spend New Year's Day saying farewell to teammates and tossing the contents of their lockers into green trash bags.
"Heartbreaking," receiver Mike Wallace said Monday morning. "We definitely had a team to make a run, so it hurts."
The Ravens needed only to beat Cincinnati on Sunday to advance to the playoffs for the first time in three years.
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL has suspended Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo for one game for violating player safety rules in Sunday's win against the Baltimore Ravens.
Sendejo's hit on Ravens receiver Mike Wallace on Baltimore's seconds series of the game was directly to the head. Wallace's helmet flew off during the collision, and Sendejo was penalized for unnecessary roughness.
In his letter to Sendejo, Jon Runyan, the NFL's vice president of football operations, wrote:
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Joe Flacco knew the criticism was surrounding him after two straight rough starts that led to losses for the Baltimore Ravens.
One big early pass to Mike Wallace helped change all of that as the Ravens rediscovered their deep passing game to jump on top of the Oakland Raiders early in a 30-17 victory Sunday.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Mike Wallace got excited as soon as he saw the script, knowing he'd have an early chance to deliver the big passing play that has been missing too often this season for Baltimore.
LONDON (AP) — About two dozen players, including Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, took a knee during the playing of the national anthem before the start of the teams' game at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
NEW YORK (AP) — CBS' "60 Minutes," the newsmagazine that can credit consistency for much of its success as it enters its 50th anniversary year, is about to see a major change with the addition of Oprah Winfrey.
Winfrey will debut Sept. 24, reporting on a story about America's political divisions.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Receiver Jeremy Maclin has signed a two-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, who spent much of the offseason looking for a deep threat.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — When Mike Wallace's two frustration-filled seasons with the Miami Dolphins came to an end, he was on the bench rather than in the playoffs.
The Dolphins then discarded him for a fifth-round draft pick, an acknowledgement the $60 million, five-year deal they gave Wallace had failed to pay off.
Even so, he said he has no regrets about his time in Miami in 2013-14.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens frustrated longtime nemesis Ben Roethlisberger long enough to build a three-touchdown lead.
By the time Roethlisberger finally found his groove, it was too late.
Joe Flacco threw a 95-yard touchdown pass to former Steeler Mike Wallace, and the Ravens beat Pittsburgh 21-14 on Sunday to snap a four-game losing streak.
Baltimore (4-4) moved into a tie atop the AFC North with the Steelers (4-4), who have dropped three in a row.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Mike Wallace was recalling the damage he inflicted on the Ravens as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers when Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs walked within earshot.
"They kept me out of the end zone pretty good," Wallace said. "But they couldn't stop me from getting a lot of yards."
"Whoa! Whoa!" Suggs shouted, lurching toward the veteran wide receiver.
CHALROTTE, N.C. (AP) — A mistrial has been declared in the case of three men accused of attacking NASCAR driver Mike Wallace and his daughter after a June concert in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Local news outlets report that Judge Ronald Chapman declared the mistrial Wednesday after learning two potential witnesses were in the courtroom when testimony began. Judges and attorneys don't want potential witnesses to hear anything that might influence their own testimony.
Fantasy football players must now deal with an added challenge: the bye weeks. That means replacing top players in your lineups, starting with those from Seattle and Green Bay, where the Packers looked better on offense last week.
There are always quality options if you worked waivers cleverly and were fortunate enough to avoid many significant injuries.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Ravens were in a huge hole and about to be buried.
Joe Flacco dug them out.
Flacco threw two touchdown passes to wide receiver Mike Wallace and Baltimore, sparked by returning a blocked extra point, rallied from 20 down and beat the Cleveland Browns 25-20 on Sunday.
NEW YORK (AP) — CBS News paid tribute to late "60 Minutes" reporter Morley Safer on Thursday with some New Orleans jazz from Wynton Marsalis, a letter from the prime minister of his native Canada and a few hearty laughs.
Safer died May 19 at age 84, eight days after CBS announced his retirement and four days after "60 Minutes" aired a special about his work during more than 50 years at CBS, most on the newsmagazine he joined in 1970 in only its third season.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens used a touchdown pass by Joe Flacco, two field goals and a throwback defensive performance to beat the Buffalo Bills 13-7 on Sunday in their season opener.
Against former defensive coordinator Rex Ryan, now Buffalo's head coach, the Ravens limited the Bills to 160 yards and sacked former teammate Tyrod Taylor twice.
That's how Baltimore played defense under Ryan from 1999-2008, and that's how it won the 2012 Super Bowl.
