Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams, who was listed as questionable for a concussion sustained on Sunday vs. Dallas, is active for tonight’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Six of the seven inactives were players who were declared out on Wednesday: cornerbacks Damarious Randall (groin) and Quinten Rollins (groin), safety Chris Banjo (hamstring), running back James Starks (knee), receiver Jared Abbrederis (quad) and tight end Jared Cook (ankle). The seventh and final inactive is rookies offensive tackle Kyle Murphy.
Without Starks and Eddie Lacy, who was placed on injured reserve before the game, Don Jackson will start. He was promoted from the practice squad as part of the Lacy transaction.
For the Bears, quarterback Jay Cutler (thumb), receiver Eddie Royal (toe), cornerback Deiondre Hall (ankle), running back Jeremy Langford (ankle), safety DeAndre Houston-Carson, guard Josh Sitton (ankle) and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) are inactive. Sitton, the former Packers All-Pro guard, injured his ankle at the end of last week’s loss to Jacksonville. Cutler, Royal, Langford, Sitton and Goldman would have been starters if healthy.
The big news for Chicago is it will have two of its top cornerbacks. Tracy Porter (knee) and Bryce Callahan (hamstring) were questionable. So, while the Packers will be without their top three corners – Sam Shields was placed on injured reserve with a concussion – Chicago will be without only Kyle Fuller, who is on injured reserve.
