GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) Another injury has cropped up on the Green Bay Packers’ offensive line. Guard Josh Sitton has a hip injury which flared up at practice yesterday – and coach Mike McCarthy said an evaluation this morning did not look good. As a result, Sitton is listed as questionable for Sunday’s N-F-C North Division battle at Chicago. It means he has a 50-50 chance of playing.
Also, receiver Donald Driver is questionable with a lingering thumb injury – and linebacker Terrell Manning is also questionable with a shoulder injury. Receiver Jordy Nelson and defensive end C-J Wilson have been ruled out of Sunday’s contest, along with defensive back Charles Woodson – who did practice a little today.
Linebacker Clay Matthews is listed as probable, and McCarthy expects the Clay-maker to have an impact – even though there might be a limit on his number of plays. It will be the first game for Matthews since November fourth, when he injured a hamstring against Arizona.
Also, Mike Neal is probable along with T-J Lang, Jerron McMillian, and Marshall Newhouse. McCarthy said he would decide today where Lang will play – either at his normal left guard spot, or at right tackle where he had been filling in for the injured Bryan Bulaga. Lang was hurt two weeks ago – and Don Barclay has done a good job filling in at the right tackle spot.
