NFC North Friday injury report
By Kevin Seifert
Getting inside the Friday injury report:
Detroit Lions: Linebacker DeAndre Levy (groin/ankle) and receiver Bryant Johnson (foot) and defensive end Turk McBride (ankle) are questionable. Levy has indicated he will try to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins in what would be his second start of the year. Other than quarterback Shaun Hill (arm), all other players will be available.
Green Bay Packers: Defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf) returned to practice Friday and has a chance to play Sunday against the New York Jets. Like defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle), he is listed as questionable. But it appears Jenkins has a better chance of playing than Pickett. Receiver Donald Driver (quad) also practiced Friday and is listed as probable. As we noted earlier, coach Mike McCarthy has already decided that cornerback Al Harris (knee) won't be activated from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Safety Atari Bigby (ankle) hasn't been ruled out.
Minnesota Vikings: Quarterback Brett Favre (foot) was listed as questionable, but his status obviously won't be determined until Sunday. The Vikings also listed cornerback Lito Sheppard (hand) and guard Chris DeGeare (ankle) as questionable, but all other players will be available.
