Amukamara (ankle) is inactive Sunday for the Bears' Week 2 game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

The absence of their top corner is a major blow to a Bears defense that was already set to have its hands full with containing Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson and a Tampa Bay receiving unit ripe with high-level talent. Amukamara was at least able to practice three times in a limited capacity this week, so he could have a more realistic shot at playing in the Bears' Week 3 matchup with the Steelers.
