There’s some good news out of Chicago on the injury front.

Quarterback Justin Fields has been upgraded from limited in Wednesday’s practice to a full participant in Thursday’s session.

Fields is dealing with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder and missed last week’s game. But the fact that he’s a full participant on Thursday is a good sign for his potential availability for this weekend’s game against the Packers.

Backup Trevor Siemain started last week’s game despite suffering an oblique injury during warm-ups. But he was out of practice for the second consecutive day.

Offensive lineman Larry Borom (ankle/knee), defensive back Jaquan Brisker (concussion), defensive back Kyler Gordon (concussion), and receiver Dante Pettis (illness) also did not practice on Thursday.

But offensive lineman Riley Reiff (back) got on the field in a limited capacity after he didn’t practice on Wednesday.

Defensive back Kindle Vildor (ankle) remained limited.

And finally, receiver Chase Claypool (knee) was also upgraded from limited to full.

  1. If it was any other team but the Packers, there’s no chance Fields would play before the bye week.

  2. They really are going to RGIII this situation aren’t they?? Doesn’t bother me, keep trotting him out there with those bums.

  3. I think at this point in the season even the Packers fans would like you to win this weekend.

    Nobody wants to see Rodgers play anymore this year and a loss here might give the Packers brass the bravery they need to bench him.

  4. He may be upgraded to full participation but he won’t be running with reckless abandon in the game like he has so far this season. He’s going to be thinking carefully about that shoulder each time he chooses to take off and run.

  5. If the Packers give up 150 yards rushing to this guy, Joe Barry should be canned before the postgame press conference.

  6. What crazy herb did Mr. Rodgers give to the Bears’ head coach?

    i.e., There’s NO reason to risk your Franchise QB to attain win #4 vs. 9 losses.

    Shut him down for the season……similar to how GB should let Love display his skills for five games.

  7. What if Siemain stays at QB, and Fields plays his natural position, running back?? Then we’d see how good both of them really are.

    He wants to finish Rodgers career as a Packer via a loss to the Bears.
    —————————————-
    Maybe they want to see Fields go 7/11 for 70 yards and 0TDs/1INT like earlier this season.

  9. This is an elite athlete in the prime of his life. He is a Bears’ investment worth tens of millions of dollars, and perhaps 100’s of millions if he ends up being a Josh Allen-type home run. The franchise, Poles, and the McCaskey’s are not going to risk him. If he plays, it’s because he’s able to go. These are not stupid people in charge, despite what talk radio maniacs say.

  10. I hope he can play; but not if it is at the risk of further damage to what appears from a distance to be a still-not-healed major career-jeopardizing injury.

  11. Does anybody else believe that THIS game means so much to anyone on either side that decision-makers are gonna risk the health of key contributors for what, bragging rights? Sit Fields, evaluate others, prepare for ’23. It’s simple. Let’s stop pretending.

  12. They should fire Joe Barry before the game and let Jerry Gray run the Defense. If the Offense doesn’t ball out it would be really the only shot Green Bay has at winning.

  13. Since I’ve already attributed the Toevid, thumb, and bruised rib excuses to prevuoys losses, if we lose this one I’ll put it down to either having a bad hair day, or better still I’ll just blame my coach (even though I call my own plays at the line) or one of my team mates.

    Thanks for the laugh, possibly worth hundreds of millions. News for you, they don’t pay running backs that much.
