Jason Campbell will start at quarterback for the Bears Monday night.

Jay Cutler, who suffered a concussion Sunday night, will not play, nor will defensive end Shea McClellin, who also suffered a concussion.

It will be Campbell's first start for the Bears and his first start since Oct. 16, 2011, as a member of the Oakland Raiders when he suffered a fractured collarbone against the Cleveland Browns.

But Campbell has started 70 NFL games with a 32-38 record. He had an 82.8 passer rating going into this season. Campbell played the second half last week after Cutler was injured and completed 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards and a 70.9 passer rating.
