With Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is expected to feature heavily in defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ schemes this season, the Packers could go without Burnett and tab Micah Hyde or fourth-year safety Sean Richardson.
Meanwhile, the Bears enter the game far more banged up with eight listed on the official injury report, including quarterback Jay Cutler’s top three receivers.
Wide outs Alshon Jeffery (calf) and Eddie Royal (hip) have participated in practice on a limited basis this week, with Jeffery’s injury of most concern now that he’s expected to takeover for the since-traded Brandon Marshall. But even though he was limited, Jeffery’s appearance at practice was a good sign since he’s been sidelined for a month by the aching left calf.
