Packers Injury Report: James Jones Is Questionable for Monday Night vs. Bears

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Packer receiver will once again be a game-time decision in week 9.

With the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears playing on Monday night this week, both teams were allowed to wait until Saturday afternoon to announce their respective injury reports for the prime-time divisional matchup.

This week, cornerback Sam Shields makes his first appearance of the year on the list. With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery causing matchup nightmares for secondaries on the outside, Shields will be needed at full strength on Monday. Thankfully, Mike McCarthy said in his press conference today that Shields was held out from practice only as a precaution and he's hopeful that there will be no reason Shields can't play.

James Jones worked in practice again on Saturday, and McCarthy said he "did a little more" than he did in Friday's session. Jones still looks to be a game-time decision, however.

Here's the Packers' full injury report.

Player Position Injury Game Status
Brad Jones ILB Hamstring Probable
Sam Shields CB Toe Probable
Ryan Taylor TE Knee Probable
James Jones WR Knee Questionable
Nick Perry OLB Foot Doubtful
Jermichael Finley TE Neck OUT
Clay Matthews OLB Thumb OUT

The Bears, on the other hand, officially ruled Jay Cutler and Lance Briggs out for Monday, though this was no surprise. All other contributors appear likely to play however, including Charles Tillman who was held out of Thursday's practice but was practicing fully by the end of the week.

Player Position Injury Game Status
Blake Costanzo OLB Knee Probable
Charles Tillman CB Knee Probable
Major Wright S Knee Probable
Joe Anderson WR Abdomen Questionable
Lance Briggs OLB Shoulder OUT
Jay Cutler QB Groin OUT
