GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers' injury list has gotten shorter but no less important.

Only four players did not practice on Thursday, but they all were starters.

Receiver James Jones (knee), linebacker Nick Perry (foot), linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) and tight end Jermichael Finley (neck) were not in attendance for the practice held inside the Don Hutson Center.

Matthews and Finley will be ruled out for Monday’s game against the Chicago Bears.

Jones has not practiced since he sprained his left knee on Oct. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens. Perry, who also was injured against the Ravens, returned to practice last Friday but did not play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. It’s unclear if he had a setback.

Tight end Ryan Taylor returned to practice for the first time since having knee surgery on Oct. 16.

Linebacker Brad Jones, who practiced last week but did not play because of the hamstring injury he suffered on Oct. 6, appeared to be a full participant.

Of the players on the physically unable to perform list, only tackle Derek Sherrod practiced. This is his third week of practice, so the Packers have to decide by Tuesday whether or not to activate him. Safety Sean Richardson (neck), offensive lineman J.C. Tretter (ankle) and defensive end Jerel Worthy (knee) remain on PUP and have not yet begun their three-week practice window.

The official injury report will be available after practice.
