While the Green Bay Packers have ruled wide receiver Jordy Nelson and safety Charles Woodson out for this weekend’s contest against the Chicago Bears, linebacker Clay Matthews is expected to return for the club. Matthews was a full participant in Friday’s practice as he appears to be nearly fully recovered from a hamstring injury that’s sidelined him the past few weeks. Given that the Pro Bowler has missed a significant stretch of time, coach Mike McCarthy thinks it would be best to limit the number of snaps Matthews’ sees tomorrow, reports James Carlton of CBS Sports. “I think it would be smart to limit his reps,” McCarthy said. “It's something we've talked about with him, personally, and a number of guys that are coming back. This is a very important game, but there are more left to be played after this game.” Nelson (hamstring) and Woodson (collarbone) both missed practice all week. Green Bay will also be without running back James Starks (knee) and defensive lineman C.J. Wilson (knee). Wide receiver Donald Driver (thumb) and linebacker Terrell Manning (shoulder) are questionable to suit up against the Bears.

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears: Week 15 NFL Pick

Green Bay Packers (9-4) at Chicago Bears  (8-5) I’ve called the Packers overrated before. This was because they were really banged up with injuries and as a result, they weren’t really playing as well as people thought they are. Injuries to Cedric Benson and now James Starks left the mediocre Alex Green as the feature back, running behind an offensive line that struggles both...
