Thursday's practice report

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa (knee) and safety Chris Harris (hip) did not practice Thursday.

For Harris, it was the second straight day he has missed practice. The veteran injured his hip in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Seahawks and took himself out of the game in the third quarter.

Harris has said repeatedly this week that his injury will not prevent him from playing against the Packers in the NFC Championship game Sunday.

Tinoisamoa underwent minor knee surgery earlier this season.

The Bears can live without linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa, they got Nick Roach, the injury that worries me is the one to free safety Chris Harris. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is red hot right now, the guy completed 86.1% of his passes vs Atlanta last saturday, without Harris back there guiding the secondary, Rodgers could have a field day. The reason Lovie Smith went with Chris Harris this season at free safety was because of his knowledge of the cover-2. Not saying rookie Major Wright isn't ready, but I'd feel a lot safer with a vet like Harris. Its does sound like Harris will be ready to go sunday, Chicago is probably just resting Harris, which is probably the right thing to do.

It isn't like Green Bay is a 100% healthy on defense right now either, OLB Clay Matthews has a shin injury, LDE Ryan Pickett has an ankle injury, RDE Cullen Jenkins has a sore calf, and CB Charles Woodson has a toe injury GO BEARS!!

In support of our hometown Chicago Bears, let us declare this Sunday, A Day Without Cheese. Just as I don't wear red when the Cubs play the Cardinals, so too should cheese - the globally recognized symbol of the Packers and their fans - be shunned on this day. Bear fans, eat whatever you like on Sunday, but skip the cheese. Just as we do not support their team, so too shall we not support their industry for this one day. Bear down, my friends.
