Brooks, McCray, Thomas all questionable for Packers

Bears have seven players listed as questionable for Sunday

GREEN BAY -- Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks (back), offensive lineman Justin McCray (ankle) and inside linebacker Joe Thomas (ankle) are all listed as questionable for the Packers heading into Sunday's game against the Bears.

On its Friday injury report, Green Bay also has ruled out safety Morgan Burnett (groin), defensive lineman Quinton Dial (chest) and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee), who is out for the season but has not yet officially been put on injured reserve.

Brooks has missed the past three games while Thomas has missed the last four. They were regulars in the defensive rotations at their respective positions before getting hurt. Brooks has one sack this season and Thomas has a half-sack.

McCray injured his ankle on the final play of Monday night's game vs. Detroit, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that the versatile lineman has been going through the week planning to play. He would replace Bulaga in the starting lineup at right tackle. If McCray can't go, it's unclear who would take that spot up front on offense.

The Packers removed linebacker Nick Perry (foot) and guard Lane Taylor (ankle) from the injury report, so they are expected to play.

For the Bears, seven players are listed as questionable, including starters Kyle Long (finger) on the offensive line and Danny Trevathan (calf) at linebacker. Long was a limited participant in practice all week, while Trevathan did not practice.
