Linebacker Clay Matthews was a full participant at practice after missing over a month with a hamstring injury. Mike McCarthy hopes to get him back on Sunday when the Packers travel to Chicago. Charles Woodson won’t play on Sunday. Last week, McCarthy said Woodson was close to being ready to return from a broken collarbone. He even practiced a bit but team doctors decided to shut him down at least one more week.
Marshall Doesn’t Like The Packers
Bears WR Brandon Marshall told the media on Wednesday that he does not like the Green Bay Packers. Marshall says that he hates everything about the Packers players and the organization. He says he’s upset at comments made about his team by defensive backs Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson after Green Bay’s 23-10 earlier this season. Marshall was held to 2 catches for 24 yards in that game.
