That leaves only left tackle David Bakhtiari, safety Vernon Scott, inside linebacker Isaiah McDuffie and defensive tackle Jack Heflin inactive for the Packers.
For the Bears, defensive lineman Akiem Hicks is inactive. The Bears are already were without star edge rusher Khalil Mack, who is out for the season.
