Friday practice report: Who's the fourth safety?

With Atari Bigby (hamstring) already ruled out and Anthony Smith (ankle) unable to practice all week, the Packers could go into Sunday's game at Atlanta with only three safeties available -- and one of them is cornerback/safety combo Jarrett Bush. It's unknown what defensive coordinator Dom Capers would do if he lost both starting safeties Nick Collins and Charlie Peprah during the game. Perhaps he would move a cornerback to that spot, or maybe even use linebacker Brandon Chillar at safety. The two injured safeties were the only players held completely out of practice today. Linebacker Clay Matthews (shin) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) both took part in the jog-through portion that was open to reporters. We'll have the full injury report later this afternoon. UPDATE (1 p.m.): Here's the full injury report:  Atari Bigby, S Hamstring Out Chad Clifton, T Knee Limited Participation Probable Donald Driver, WR Quadricep Full Participation Probable Cullen Jenkins, DE Calf Full Participation Probable Clay Matthews, LB Shin Limited Participation Probable Ryan Pickett, DE Ankle Full Participation Probable Anthony Smith, S Ankle Did Not Participate Doubtful Scott Wells, C Arch Did Not Participate Probable Charles Woodson, CB Toe Full Participation Probable MM: "Wells was just rested, fully anticipate he'll go." Again wouldn't say who the fourth safety is. on Smith, who didn't work out today: "Taking a cautious approach with Anthony. We feel good with Jarrett Bush and the other guys who are available."
