Sitton Active; Driver Inactive

After being listed as questionable, right guard Josh Sitton looks like he'll be in the starting lineup today at Chicago. The Bears will be without four starters.

Josh Sitton is active and appears set to start at right guard for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers' inactives against Chicago are defensive back Charles Woodson, running back James Starks, linebacker Terrell Manning, receiver Donald Driver, tight end D.J. Williams, receiver Jordy Nelson and defensive end C.J. Wilson.

For the Bears, the inactives are quarterback Josh McCown, cornerback Tim Jennings, linebackers Brian Urlacher and Geno Hayes, defensive tackle Henry Melton, receiver Earl Bennett and defensive end Shea McClellin. Jennings, Urlacher, Melton and Bennett are starters.

Sitton was listed as questionable with a hip injury that kept him out of Friday's practice. For most of pregame warm-ups, though, the Packers had Sitton at right guard. He was surrounded by left tackle Marshall Newhouse, left guard T.J. Lang, center Jeff Saturday and right tackle Don Barclay.

Driver is inactive for the second time in three games because of a broken thumb. Driver, however, practiced all week and was passed on the gameday depth chart by rookie Jarrett Boykin and first-year player Jeremy Ross. Driver has eight catches, including none since making one catch against Detroit on Nov. 18.
