If the Green Bay Packers are going to increase their lead in the NFC North on Monday, they are going to have to do it without linebacker Nick Perry. Perry is inactive for the Packers and will miss his third straight game.
While Perry remains out with a foot injury, the Packers will have wide receiver James Jones. Jones missed the last two games due to a knee injury and was limited in practice during the week, but is active.
Chicago's Charles Tillman has been hobbled by a knee injury recently, but he practiced fully on Saturday and is active. Safety Major Wright is also active after being limited earlier in the week. The Bears will be without wide receiver Joe Anderson who is inactive due to an abdomen injury. He has played mostly special teams this season.
Both teams also remain without key players on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs are inactive for Chicago and are still expected to miss another few weeks. Linebacker Clay Matthews and tight end Jermichael Finley remain out for the Packers.
Here are the full inactive lists for both teams.
QB Jay Cutler, LB Lance Briggs, WR Joe Anderson, OL James Brown, OL Jonathan Scott, DE Cornelius Washington, DT Zach Minter
WR Chris Harper, CB James Nixon, OLB Clay Matthews, OLB Nick Perry, TE Jermichael Finley, DE Josh Boyd, DE C.J. Wilson.
