Green Bay and Chicago are both now 1-and-1 after the Packers pounded the Bears 23-to-10 last night at Lambeau Field. The early season NFC North showdown included seven sacks for the Green Bay defense on Bear’s quarterback Jay Cutler, who also was intercepted four times. Green Bay doesn’t play again until Monday, September 24th at Seattle. The Bear’s next game is a week from Sunday at home against the Rams.
Lion’s wide receiver Calvin Johnson returned to the practice field yesterday after being held out on Wednesday because of an injury to his foot. Johnson said he wanted to rest it for a day and then work out yesterday to see how it would respond in a game. Cornerback Chris Houston practiced for a second consecutive day after being sidelined following an ankle injury in the preseason. Safety Louis Delmas, with a knee injury, cornerback Bill Bentley with a concussion and defensive tackle Corey Williams, with an injured knee, did not take part in drills Thursday and are questionable for Sunday night’s game against the 49ers in San Francisco, which you can hear live on AM 1590 and FM 95.5 beginning at 7:20 pm.
