Marshall, Bears offer new challenge to Packers
Question of the Day
“I thought we did some good things in the pass rush,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “The statistical support of that would be the four sacks, but I thought we had good pressure (throughout the game).”
Green Bay could be without wide receiver Greg Jennings, who hurt his groin in the game, has missed practice time and is listed as doubtful. The Packers could again try to create mismatches with Randall Cobb, who caught a team-high nine passes last week.
The Packers will be hoping for more production from Cedric Benson, who had nine carries for only 18 yards last week. Benson, a first-round pick by Chicago in 2005, had 189 yards rushing when he faced the Bears with Cincinnati in 2009.
Expect Rodgers to test linebacker Brian Urlacher, who missed nearly all of training camp and the preseason with a left knee injury that required surgery. With the Bears up big, Urlacher came out of the Colts game early, presumably to rest up for the quick turnaround.
“Looks like he’s moving around pretty good,” Rodgers said. “They were up by 20 when he came out. I would expect him to be ready to go.”
Bears coach Lovie Smith insists that Urlacher is the same player he was before the injury.
“He still is that guy,” Smith said. “He’s the face of our franchise. That’s not going to change. He had an injury. A lot of guys go through injuries. I thought last week that was a good start for him. He got about 30 plays. He was old Brian.”
