McClellin (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Bengals.
McClellin will have to pass league concussion protocol before he can return to the field. The Patriots' linebacking corp is extra thin this Sunday, as Jamie Collins (hip) has also been ruled out. Look for Barkevious Mingo and Elandon Roberts to see plenty of action Sunday as result of the injuries.

McClellin's 81 tackles left him second on the Bears in 2015 despite the fact that he was limited to 12 games by a concussion and a knee injury.

McClellin ended up finishing second on the team in tackles, but likely would have led the Bears had he not missed three games due to a knee injury and one contest due to a concussion. He was able to return from the head injury in advance of the Week 17 loss to the Lions, but only played 11 snaps, as the Bears elected not to overwork him. Even so, the team's coaching staff seemed very satisfied with McClellin in his first season as a inside linebacker, so he could be back as a starter for the club in 2016.
