Packers injuries: LB Clay Matthews probable; WR Jordy Nelson out for Sunday

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

Clay Matthews, among others, was upgraded to probable for Sunday's contest while wide receiver Jordy Nelson has been ruled out for the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers made a few changes to their official injury report on Friday, most notably upgrading linebacker Clay Matthews to probable for Sunday's contest against the Chicago Bears.

Matthews was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but, after fully taking part in the team's practice on Friday, is likely to play in some role on Sunday afternoon. Defensive lineman Mike Neal and offensive lineman T.J. Lang, who recently injured his ankle, were also bumped up to probable. Young members of the secondary, Davon House and Jerron McMillian, are also probable for the game.

Guard Josh Sitton did not practice on Friday after injuring a hip in practice this week, and is listed as questionable. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who sat out last Sunday night's victory over the Detroit Lions after tweaking an old hamstring injury the prior week against the Minnesota Vikings, was ruled out. Other guys who will not play against the Bears include running back James Starks and defensive stalwart Charles Woodson.
