NFC North Friday injury report
By Kevin Seifert
Let's take a quick look inside the Friday injury report:
Chicago Bears: Because they play Monday, the Bears won't provide game designations until Saturday. But we already know that quarterback Jay Cutler (concussion) is out of Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Defensive end Shea McClellin (concussion) also is out. It appears, meanwhile, that receiver Alshon Jeffery (hand) is ready to return. Jeffery had full participation in Friday's practice.
Detroit Lions: The Lions ruled out defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee) and safety Amari Spievey (concussion) for Sunday's game against Green Bay Packers. Safety Louis Delmas (knee) is listed as doubtful and not expected to play. Cornerback Chris Houston (ankle) and receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) are questionable, but both are expected to play.
Green Bay Packers: Tight end Andrew Quarless (knee) was ruled out, along with three players we already knew about: Receiver Greg Jennings (abdomen), defensive back Charles Woodson (collarbone) and linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring). Cornerback Sam Shields (shin) is questionable, but the chances of him playing don't appear great. Linebacker Terrell Manning (shoulder) is questionable, but all other players should be available.
