Bears list Tillman as probable, Cutler and Briggs out vs. Packers

Charles Tillman AP

Bears cornerback Charles Tillman appears to be good to go for Monday night against the Packers.

Tillman, who was limited in practice during the week with a knee injury, is listed as probable on the official injury report.

As expected, the Bears have ruled out quarterback Jay Cutler and linebacker Lance Briggs. Bears receiver Joe Anderson is questionable with an abdominal injury.

For the Packers, tight end Jermichael Finley and linebacker Clay Matthews are both out, while linebacker Nick Perry is doubtful. Receiver James Jones is questionable with a knee injury. Green Bay linebacker Brad Jones, cornerback Sam Shields and tight end Ryan Taylor are all probable.

    Cutler and Briggs are obviously ducking the Packers.

    McCarthy and Trestman should just agree to let the Packers win 3-0 and run the victory formation all game. Why risk injury on a game not worth playing.

    I’m not sure why it seems like everyone is writing this off as an easy victory for the Packers. Green Bay vs. Chicago is the best rivalry in the NFL and it doesn’t matter how much “better” a team is in a given year because every game is hard-fought and the score is usually decided by a touchdown or less.

    Unlike the Vikings Team and Fans, we Packers Fans bag on the Bears with a begrudging respect. The only Packers fans who have marked this game as a win are incredibly young or incredibly foolish, most likely both. The bears bring it every time the play the Packers and are twice as dangerous when counted out. This game will be another struggle of titans between two the leagues best franchises and the victor will be decided by heart and determination. The Bears are our rivals and worthy of that title because every true rival is a legitimate threat and the Bears have been since time immemorial. As Aaron Rodgers has said constantly in his career, it is an honor to clash swords with our timeless foe. I’m never so confident, worried, excited and expectant as when we play Chicago. These are the games that make the NFL worth every penny. See you boys on the battlefield Monday.

    Nice to see so many respectful posts between Bears and Packers fans, but filthymcnasty1 demands an explanation.

    It’s nice to see people (especially on the internet) handle the rivalry like it should. These games are never easy for them. At the end of the day though, go Bears!

    I hope I don’t break another controller tonight.

    I’ll add my voice to the chorus of Packer fans who have a lot of respect for Da Bears, the Halas family, etc. Regardless of how the teams are faring overall, the rivalry games are usually fiercely fought and competitive until the final whistle. The Packers might not even exist if not for George Halas, who gave some financial support to the Packer organization back in the 50s when they were really foundering. I can’t wait for tonight!

    Tonight the Packers are working on their 7th straight glorious victory in a row over the Bears.

    They can stop working now and go home.
