Who Powered Through: Bears at Packers Week 17 Injury Report

Our last injury report of the regular season yields virtually no surprises.

Kevin Seifert (hell of a first name) has the full divisional report over at the NFC North Blog. You should also follow him on twitter (@espn_nfcnblog) Here's the pertinent excerpts:

Chicago Bears: As usual, the Bears are almost completely healthy. Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) was removed from the injury report, leaving only receiver Earl Bennett. He is listed as questionable because of an ankle injury.

Green Bay Packers: Defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf) has again been ruled out, but the Packers expect to have nickel back Sam Shields for Sunday's game. Shields (knee) returned to practice Friday, took his normal repetitions and is listed as probable on the injury report. Jenkins joins safety Atari Bigby (groin), linebacker Frank Zombo (knee) and fullback Korey Hall (knee) as players already ruled out of this game. Everyone else should be available for the Packers.

It remains incredibly impressive how healthy the Bears are at this point in the season, and that shouldn't really change going into the post season.

It's thoroughly possible that the Bears will start virtually every person who started in Week 1 in the first playoff game. That's nothing short of remarkable, and stands as a testament to their athleticism, the training staff, and a little bit of luck.
