NFC North Friday injury report
By Kevin Seifert
Getting inside the Friday injury report, which includes day-after news for two of our teams:
Chicago Bears: Nickel back D.J. Moore will miss his second consecutive game because of an ankle injury. Corey Graham is expected to serve in that role Sunday at the Oakland Raiders. Receiver/kick returner Devin Hester is dealing with a shin injury but should be available for Sunday's game.
Detroit Lions: You already know that running back Jahvid Best was placed on injured reserve. Safety Louis Delmas indicated via Twitter that he will miss some time after suffering a knee injury Thursday. The Lions are also dealing with running back Kevin Smith's high ankle sprain and a knee injury to cornerback Chris Houston.
Green Bay Packers: Coach Mike McCarthy indicated it was unlikely that right guard Josh Sitton will be ready for the Dec. 4 game at the New York Giants. Linebackers Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk both suffered calf strains Thursday, but McCarthy said they both have a chance to play against the Giants. Packers players have an extended weekend off and will return to practice next Tuesday.
