The Green Bay Packers have another lengthy injury report this week as they prepare to play the Chicago Bears on a short week. The team practiced only on Tuesday and Wednesday, releasing their players' injury statuses following Wednesday's session.
Of the sixteen players listed, two are out for Thursday night's game, four are questionable, and ten are listed as probable. Although all five members of the starting offensive line are listed, all but center Corey Linsley are probable and therefore are expected to play. Linsley did not practice at all this week, but is questionable for the game. If he cannot play, JC Tretter would take his place in the starting lineup.
Here's the Packers' full list:
WR Jared Abbrederis (rib, did not participate)
WR Ty Montgomery (ankle, did not participate)
DB Micah Hyde (hip, limited)
C Corey Linsley (ankle, did not participate)
DT Mike Pennel (quad, limited)
CB Damarious Randall (hamstring, limited)
WR Davante Adams (ankle, full participation)
OT David Bakhtiari (knee, limited)
OT Bryan Bulaga (knee, limited)
S Morgan Burnett (ankle, full participation)
OLB Jayrone Elliott (ankle, full participation)
RB Eddie Lacy (ankle, full participation)
G T.J. Lang (shoulder, limited)
LB Clay Matthews (ankle/knee, limited)
FB Aaron Ripkowski (ankle, full participation)
G Josh Sitton (ankle, full participation)
The Chicago Bears will be missing a few key players on offense this week, but might get a couple of starters back this week. Tight end Martellus Bennett, who has historically given the Packers' offense trouble, has been ruled out with a rib injury, as has slot receiver Eddie Royal. Meanwhile, Matt Forte and Alshon Jeffery will have a chance to play tomorrow evening after missing last week's game (or in Forte's case, the last few games).
