The Chicago Bears will face the Washington Redskins at 1 pm ET for a Week 7 match-up.

Martellus Bennett and Charles Tillman will both be active for the Bears despite knee injuries.

The 26-year-old Bennett has been playing though knee soreness for a few weeks and has proven to be a valuable option at tight-end in the Bears passing game.

Tillman will return after missing last weeks game against the Giants. The return of the 32-year-old defensive play maker will be good news for a Bears secondary that has been picked at early this season. Tillman’s return will make it difficult for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to complete passes and should aid in the Bears getting pressure on the second year starter.

DT Stephen Paea (toe) will also return to the Bears this week.
