The Chicago Bears ac­ti­vated right guard Kyle Long from in­jured re­serve, clear­ing the way for the three-time Pro Bowl line­man to play in the reg­u­lar-sea­son fi­nale at Min­nesota.

Long has been out since Oct. 28, when he suf­fered a ten­don in­jury in his right foot against the New York Jets. He had surgery and was placed on IR with an op­tion to re­turn.

The NFC North cham­pion Bears (11-4) are headed to the play­offs for the first time since the 2010 team won the divi­sion. They could earn a first-round bye Sun­day with a win and a loss by the Los An­ge­les Rams, while the Vik­ings (8-6-1) need a win or a loss by the Philadel­phia Ea­gles to make the play­offs as a wild card.

Chicago also waived quar­ter­back Tyler Bray on Satur­day.
