 Naturally , the team has sunk to the lower reaches of SB Nation’s weekly NFL power rankings, coming in at No. 20.”The Packers have fallen so low that the Browns actually rank above them. How is that possible of a Rodgers-led team? Well, Mike McCarthy is largely to blame; it will take a miracle for the Packers to make the playoffs.”Miracle or not, this represents the nadir for the McCarthy era in Green Bay.As for the rest of the NFC North, the Chicago Bears lead the way at No. 4 (up two spots from a week prior). The Minnesota Vikings don’t trail by much, coming in at No. 11 (up two). The Detroit Lions still hold the back position, ranking 23rd (down one).Elsewhere on the internet, the Packers have fallen nearly as far. and ESPN have them 15th and 16th respectively. Yahoo Sports slotted Green Bay in at No. 18 while USA Today placed them at No. 20. On Friday, the Chicago Bears got some surprising bad news on the injury front as they practiced for the final time before Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. Two players showed up on the Bears’ injury report, one of whom has been a significant reason for the success of the defense in the Windy City.That player is safety Eddie Jackson Dexter Williams Jersey , who has become a turnover and touchdown machine since arriving in Chicago as a fourth-round draft pick a year ago. in 29 games with the Bears, Jackson has seven interceptions, two forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries, and he has taken five of those turnovers back for touchdowns. However, Jackson appeared suddenly on Friday’s injury report for week 15 with a shin injury that made him miss the day’s practice. That injury also has him questionable for Sunday’s game at Soldier Field.A potential Jackson absence would rob the Bears of a second top defensive back. Slot cornerback Bryce Callahan suffered a broken foot recently and was placed on injured reserve this week; if Jackson cannot play, expect the Packers to try to exploit some matchups in the passing game down the middle of the field.The Bears ruled two other players questionable as well. Defensive tackle Bilal Nichols also appeared on the injury report for the first time on Friday, listed as limited in practice with a knee issue. Meanwhile wide receiver Allen Robinson is questionable but practiced fully with a hip injury.The Packers will have a tall order on Sunday even absent any injuries, but they could be without key players on both the offensive and defensive line. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga has not practiced this week and is officially doubtful for the game, meaning that Jason Spriggs will likely start in his place. Meanwhile Elgton Jenkins Jersey , nose tackle Kenny Clark was listed as questionable despite also not practicing yet this week.Finally, cornerback Bashaud Breeland is questionable as well, though his absence from practice is primarily due to a personal issue. The Packers will have a light practice on Saturday, as usual, so there is still a chance that some of them may suit up. Thankfully, the Packers are expecting to have left guard Lane Taylor back this week. He did not appear on the Friday report, and was a full participant in Thursday’s practice.Here are the full reports for this week’s game.Packers Injury ReportDoubtfulOT Bryan Bulaga (knee)QuestionableCB Bashaud Breeland (groin/not injury related)DT Kenny Clark (elbow)Bears Injury ReportQuestionableS Eddie Jackson (shin)DT Bilal Nichols (knee)WR Allen Robinson (hip)
