The Packers are dealing with a fair number of injuries heading into Thursday night’s game, a state of affairs that the Bears know well this season and continue to deal with this week.

Wide receiver Eddie Royal has been ruled out with a toe injury he suffered in last week’s loss to the Jaguars. That will leave Alshon Jeffery and Cameron Meredith in the leading roles at receiver for Brian Hoyer, who is set to start again with Jay Cutler listed as doubtful after another week of missed practices due to his thumb injury.

Left guard Josh Sitton is also listed as doubtful after hurting his ankle late in last week’s game, backing up word out of Chicago that he will miss the game against the team that released him earlier this year.

Cornerback Deiondre Hall is out and running back Jeremy Langford is in line to miss another game after drawing a doubtful tag. Linebackers Sam Acho, Leonard Floyd and Jerrell Freeman; cornerbacks Bryce Callahan and Tracy Porter; tight end Zach Miller and running back Ka’Deem Carey are all listed as questionable.

    They sure don’t build NFL players like they used to. You’d think with modern medicine and technology, teams would be better equipped to avoid missed games.
