Been a long day over here in the Black and Blue, but let's catch up on some injury and personnel news from around the division:

Chicago: Receiver Marty Booker suffered a cracked rib in the Bears' 23-10 victory over Jacksonville, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Sun-Times. Booker should play again this season, but it's possible he'll miss Thursday night's game against New Orleans because of the quick turnaround. We know this much: defensive tackle Tommie Harris rested during the second half of Sunday's game. We're not totally sure why. Coach Lovie Smith said Harris had a sore hamstring, while Harris said he was resting his knee, according to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune.

Detroit: Quarterback Daunte Culpepper had his right shoulder examined Monday and his status is in question. Coach Rod Marinelli has more injured quarterbacks (Dan Orlovsky, Drew Stanton, Jon Kitna) than healthy ones (Drew Henson). The Lions' starter going forward is anyone's guess.

Green Bay: Right tackle Mark Tauscher tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, coach Mike McCarthy announced Monday. Tauscher will be placed on injured reserve, and as a pending free agent, it's possible he's played his last season in a Packers uniform. Even if the Packers want him back, you wonder if his knee will be ready. Tauscher suffered a 75 percent tear of the same ligament during the 2002 season. Some players never return when they re-tear an ACL.
