Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers Injury Report: Alshon Jeffery among 4 listed as questionable

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have announced their injury report for this Sunday's season opener against the Green bay Packers. All three of the injured Bear receivers are listed as questionable (50% chance they will play). Alshon Jeffery (calf) seems the most unlikely of the trio to play, but he was practicing again on a limited basis alongside Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) today.

All three were in full pads today, but limited. Head coach John Fox is optimistic that all three will play on Sunday. Linebacker Jon Bostic (ankle) is also listed as questionable. Fox calling certain players 50/50 may just be a tactic he uses all year long and it's something we'll have to monitor.

Starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod (back) is listed as probable, meaning there's a 75% chance he plays. Also receiving the probable designation are nose tackle Eddie Goldman (concussion) and back up QB Jimmy Clausen (concussion). All three of these guys practiced all week. With defensive lineman Jeremiah Ratliff starting his 3 game suspension this week, missing Goldman could be huge.

The Bears have already ruled two players out for Sunday, cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) and outside linebacker Sam Acho (illness). For those wondering about Acho's illness, Fox said he was away from Halas Hall for a while, but he isn't contagious.

For the Green Bay Packers, starting wide receiver Randall Cobb (shoulder) was limited all week and is listed as probable. Starting linebacker Sam Barrington (ankle) was also limited this week, but he's questionable. Starting safety Morgan Burnett (calf) didn't practice all week and he's also listed as questionable.

For what it's worth, Cobb expects to play on Sunday.
