NFC North Friday injury report
By Kevin Seifert
Getting inside the Friday (non-Brett Favre) injury report:
Chicago Bears: Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) won't play Sunday against the New England Patriots. Linebacker Nick Roach (hip) is questionable. All other players are expected to be available.
Detroit Lions: Right tackle Gosder Cherilus (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers and likely will be replaced by Corey Hilliard. Receiver Derrick Williams (ankle) was placed on injured reserve. Linebacker Isaiah Ekejiuba (knee) is questionable, but all other players should be available. (Except quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.)
Green Bay Packers: The big news is that cornerback Charles Woodson, who sprained his ankle in practice Wednesday, appears fine. He's listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Left tackle Chad Clifton (concussion) is also probable. Three players were ruled out, to no one's surprise: Fullback Korey Hall (knee), defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf) and cornerback Pat Lee (ankle). Backup safeties Atari Bigby (hamstring) and Anthony Smith (ankle) are questionable.
Minnesota Vikings: Receiver Percy Harvin is doubtful because of what the Vikings say is a two-week migraine headache. It's a near-certainty that Harvin won't play Sunday against the New York Giants. The Vikings have also ruled out cornerback Chris Cook (knee) and safety Tyrell Johnson (knee). Left guard Steve Hutchinson (thumb) is listed as questionable but interim coach Leslie Frazier said "it's going to be difficult" for Hutchinson to play. Defensive end Ray Edwards (ankle) is listed as questionable and is likely to be a game-time decision.
