The medical outlook is gloomy once more ahead of Week 5, with several big names across each position set to sit out once again. The receivers make up the biggest group of walking wounded this week, with a couple of big names already ruled out and one heading for a possible game-time decision. With an avalanche of news to go over, let's jump right into the latest information you'll need for your Sunday morning lineup prep ahead of inactives:

The Bears' Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's international interconference showdown with the Raiders in London. Chase Daniel, who completed 22 of 30 passes for 195 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions against the Vikings after Trubisky's exit in Week 4, will start versus Oakland.
