    Rookie defensive end Shea McClellin, who missed the Bears’ 32-7 loss against the 49ers with a concussion, said Wednesday he has been cleared by doctors to practice and expects to play Sunday against the Vikings at Soldier Field.

    McClellin suffered the concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter of the Bears’ 13-6 loss to the Texans on Nov. 11 at Soldier Field. He said he had headaches last week and wasn’t feeling ‘‘over it’’ until Friday.

    ‘‘It wasn’t the hardest hit I ever took, but it was just kind of the right spot,’’ said McClellin, who has 21/2 sacks, two tackles for loss and nine quarterback pressures while playing 50 percent of the defensive snaps.

    ‘‘It happens. I wouldn’t say it was a freak thing. I hit the right spot.’’
