BBAO: Updating the injury lists

By Kevin Seifert

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Wednesday's busy day of news, videos and podcasts left some practice updates for the early morning. Here's the NFC North summary as best as I can gather:

Chicago Bears tailback Matt Forte was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, an encouraging sign of progress with his ankle injury that knocked him out of last Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Detroit Lions brought receiver Titus Young back to practice after a week of inactivity, but he worked with the second team and his status for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts is unclear.

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) worked out on the side but doesn't seem likely to play Sunday against the Vikings. And the Vikings, meanwhile, cleared tight end Kyle Rudolph and safety Harrison Smith from their concussions and both practiced. Receiver Percy Harvin was a limited participant but still seems iffy for Sunday's game.

Let's take a more detailed spin around the division on this fine Thursday morning:
