The Green Bay Packers expect to have linebacker Clay Matthews back in the lineup Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
Matthews is listed as probable for the NFC North showdown. The team's top pass rusher has missed the last four games because of a hamstring injury.
Green Bay could be forced to make more changes on their offensive line. Right guard Josh Sitton (hip) is questionable for the game while T.J. Lang is probable after missing Green Bay's last game with an ankle injury.
Lang had been moved from left guard to right tackle after Bryan Bulaga suffered a season-ending hip injury last month.
The Packers listed safety Charles Woodson (collarbone), receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring), running back James Starks (knee) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (knee) as out for Sunday.

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, the Green Bay Packers are now thinking about reducing wide receiver Randall Cobb’s kick returning duities since his offensive role has expanded so much this season.
We hear the Packers have at least given some thought to lessening multithreat Randall Cobb’s workload by reducing his kick-return duties.
The last thing the Packers want to do is...
We're still reeling from the unspeakable tragedy that has the nation and the world mourning the loss of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, CT.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Finally, the Packers have gotten through a game without a player being fined.
The streak of four consecutive games ended when safety Morgan Burnett did not receive a fine from the NFL this week.
In Sunday's win over the Detroit Lions, Burnett was flagged for unnecessary roughness early in the third quarter when he hit wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Two days after releasing him, the Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Vic So'oto to their practice squad.
So'oto was released Tuesday to make room for defensive tackle Jordan Miller. The Packers needed more depth after playing Sunday night's game against Detroit with just four defensive linemen. So'oto's return Thursday was expected, and his locker was left...
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...
Evidently Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has his fantasy owners as a tipping point. After his fourth straight mediocre performance, there are many fantasy owners making alternative plans for Week 15 as the Packers face the Chicago Bears in the Windy City. Is that a wise move?
Since the Packers’ Week 10 Bye, Rodgers is averaging 228.5 passing yards per game. He...
Earlier this week, Green Bay Packer tight end Jermichael Finley came out and said the Bears are a better team without linebacker Brian Urlacher on the field.
Bears linebacker Lance Briggs came to the defense of Urlacher, but Urlacher also decided to fire back at Finley.
“Just like a couple of years ago, I think, he tore his ACL and the Packers were actually better without him,”...

It’s already the NFL’s week 15 and let’s cut to the chase in the NFC North. This is a week that most Packers fans had circled on the schedule as soon as it came out. Is there a more intense week in the Packers universe than “Bears week”?

Jay Cutler can't catch a break this season.
Clay Matthews was back at practice Wednesday for the first time since pulling his hamstring last month, and he's eager to terrorize the Bears quarterback again Sunday when the Green Bay Packers (9-4) travel to Chicago. The Packers can clinch the NFC North title with a victory over their biggest rivals.
