Bears vs. Packers Inactives: James Jones available to play

Tom Lynn

The Packers and Bears have released their inactive list for tonight's game.

In a somewhat surprising development, wide receiver James Jones will be active for tonight's Bears-Packers showdown. Jones had been sidelined with a strained PCL he sustained against the Ravens on October 13. The Packers tend to play the high side of caution with injuries, so Jones' activation would seem to indicate he's nearly 100% recovered.

Despite Brandon Marshall's assertion to the contrary, Bears starting quarterback Jay Cutler is indeed inactive for tonight's game with a groin injury. In his place, journeyman Josh McCown is pegged for his first start of the season.

The full inactive list for both the Bears and Packers are included below.

Packers

  • WR Chris Harper
  • CB James Nixon
  • LB Clay Matthews
  • LB Nick Perry
  • TE Jermichael Finley
  • DE Josh Boyd
  • DE C.J. Wilson

Bears

  • QB Jay Cutler
  • LB Lance Briggs
  • DT Zach Minter
  • WR Joe Anderson
  • OT James Brown
  • OT Jonathan Scott
  • DE Cornelius Washington
