The Green Bay Packers are in the Windy City today to kick off the 2015 NFL season. The Packers play the Chicago Bears in a season opener for the first time since 2009, and for the first time in Illinois since the 1981 season.

The Packers come in with a trio of injured starters this week. Randall Cobb was listed as probable due to a shoulder sprain, Sam Barrington has an ankle issue, and Morgan Burnett missed practice all week with a calf injury. Keep an eye on those three players today, as the Packers will have to game plan to adjust to their limitations.

Meanwhile, both teams have defensive linemen out on suspensions. Letroy Guion and Datone Jones are both out for the Packers, while nose tackle Jeremiah Ratliff is suspended for the Bears.
