Let's get inside the Friday injury report in the NFC North:
Chicago Bears: Cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, joining linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring) and receiver Earl Bennett (concussion). It does appear the Bears will have receivers Devin Hester (concussion) and Alshon Jeffery (knee) for this game. Both are listed as probable. Running back Michael Bush (ribs) returned to practice but is listed as questionable. Guard Chris Spencer (knee) practiced all week and is also questionable.
Detroit Lions: There are no players who are listed as worse than questionable for Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers. Nose tackle Nick Fairley (quadriceps) practiced Friday and is listed as questionable. Safety Louis Delmas (knee) practiced once this week, on Thursday, and is questionable as well. Nose tackle Corey Williams (knee) did not practice this week but is questionable. Cornerbacks Chris Houston (ankle) and Jacob Lacey (foot/Achilles) practiced on Thursday and Friday and are questionable.
Green Bay Packers: Five players are out for this game: Linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring), receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring), running back James Starks (knee), defensive end C.J. Wilson (knee) and defensive back Charles Woodson (collarbone). Defensive end Mike Neal (shoulder) is doubtful. The big surprise is that right tackle T.J. Lang practiced some on Friday and is listed as questionable. Coach Mike McCarthy said he is preparing as if rookie Don Barclay will make his first NFL start.
Minnesota Vikings: Now that receiver Percy Harvin is on injured reserve, everyone on the Vikings' roster is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Bears. As of mid-Friday afternoon, the team had not filled Harvin's spot on the roster.
