Let's get inside our last Friday injury report of the 2012 season. Sniff, sniff…
Chicago Bears: Linebacker Brian Urlacher practiced for the first time since injuring his hamstring Dec. 2, but he was limited and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. It's more likely that Urlacher was beginning the process of returning for the playoffs if the Bears make it that far. The Bears listed tailback Matt Forte (ankle) as probable, but they also elevated running back Harvey Unga from the practice squad because backup Armando Allen is questionable because of a knee injury. Defensive lineman Henry Melton (chest) is questionable as well. Safety Chris Conte (hamstring) and linebacker Blake Costanzo (calf) are out.
Detroit Lions: Defensive lineman Sammie Hill (toe) is out of Sunday's game. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew (ankle) is out, but all other players should be available.
Green Bay Packers: Receiver Randall Cobb (ankle) returned to practice Friday in a limited fashion and is listed as questionable. Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that Cobb looked good but that a decision on his status for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings hasn't been determined. Receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) is probable, as is defensive linemen C.J. Wilson (knee) and Jerel Worthy (hamstring). Cornerback Davon House (shoulder/hip) is doubtful.
Minnesota Vikings: There appears a good chance the Vikings will have all 53 players on their roster available for Sunday. Defensive end Brian Robison (shoulder) is questionable but he practiced all week and appears on track to at least be in uniform, even if backup Everson Griffen takes the lead. Cornerback Antoine Winfield did not practice this week because of a broken hand and is listed as questionable. Winfield did some work on the sidelines Friday and seems set to play with padding on his hand.
