The Green Bay Packers already lead the Bears 12 to 7 in the number of players listed on the injury report. But for the Packers, nine of the twelve are listed as probable on the Packers injury report, and I expect them all to play. Of all the players listed as probable, RB Alex Green has the oddest injury caused by an ill-fitted shoe

The three players listed as out for the Packers are no surprise. DE Mike Neal is still recovering from knee surgery, and LB Frank Zombo is still waiting for his broken shoulder to heal. S Nick Collins's season is over, but he's not on I.R. so he still has to be listed on the injury report.

According to the Journal-Sentinel, rookie M.D. Jennings (who had an uninspiring, but solid, preseason) is the top backup at safety now, but the team doesn't seem too thrilled with the idea. If he was forced to play, and he did struggle, I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a quick hook in favor of Jarrett Bush. In case you're wondering, Atari Bigby was signed by the Seahawks in August and sitting on the end of their bench.

This will be the first regular season game for rookie LB Vic So'oto, and it sounds like he'll play some. Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene said So'oto would "see his fair share of time" once he's healthy.

For the Bears, only WR Earl Bennett and RT Gabe Carimi are out. Five more players are listed as questionable and shouldn't be counted on. Kevin Seifert thinks that S Chris Harris and WR Roy Williams have "a decent chance of playing" while S Major Wright, RG Lance Louis, and RB Marion Barber don't. I'd be really surprised if Wright played after he tried "a Bob Sanders special" and ended up taking a leg to the head.
