KEYS TO THE GAME
Packers: S Atari Bigby was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Bothered by an ankle injury since late in the preseason, the final straw for the primary starter at strong safety was a shoulder injury he sustained in the Nov. 30 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Bigby was deactivated the last two games. He had missed five games early in the season because of a hamstring injury he suffered in the Week 2 win at the Detroit Lions. ... CB Al Harris didn't do much in practice Thursday, the team's first workout day of the week, after he suffered a sprained shoulder in Sunday's loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team expects Harris to play in the Monday night game at the Chicago Bears. ... Clifton was a full participant in practice and is expected to make the start Monday. Clifton didn't finish the last game after he suffered sprains to both of his thumbs. ... FB Korey Hall had limited work in practice and could be iffy to return to game action because of a sprained knee. The injury kept Hall out of the last game. John Kuhn would be the starting replacement again. ... RB Brandon Jackson also was limited Thursday as he recovers from a sprained wrist he suffered in the last game. The No. 2 halfback is expected to be ready for the upcoming game. ... TE Tory Humphrey went through the entire practice and should be good to play after coming out of the last game with a concussion. ... Harrell also was a full participant as he tries to get ready to play again after missing the last game because of a nagging hip injury.
