Packers vs. Bears Inactives: Brad Jones Is Out, Randall Cobb Is In

The Packers will have their slot receiver back, but will not have the services of a starting linebacker.


The Green Bay Packers have released the list of inactive players for Sunday's game. This is good news for Packers fans hoping to see wide receiver Randall Cobb playing today, as he is not on that list. However, one surprise is there, a starter on defense who was listed as Probable on Friday's injury report.

Here's the Packers' list:

WR Chris Harper
ILB Brad Jones
OLB Clay Matthews
CB Jumal Rolle
G Lane Taylor
OL JC Tretter
DE C.J. Wilson

Brad Jones' scratch is a surprise, and since he's out, Jamari Lattimore will take his place as the starting inside linebacker beside A.J. Hawk. The Packers will have three quarterbacks active today, with Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn, and Scott Tolzien all dressing for the game.

Another slight surprise is that Nick Perry, who is playing, but not starting. Andy Mulumba will start on the right side in Matthews' position, but instead of Perry on the left side, Mike Neal is starting.

The Bears' inactive report has no major names on it. Lance Briggs played last week and is active again this week. Earl Bennett is the only key player out for the Bears today. Here's the full list:

WR Earl Bennett
OL James Brown
T Joe Long
QB Jordan Palmer
T Jonathan Scott
DE Cornelius Washington
WR Chris Williams
