The Green Bay Packers have the most notable inactive players in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga and defensive lineman Kenny Clark aren’t suiting up for the Packers, which is a major blow for Green Bay on both sides of the ball. Bulaga has been a presence on the Packers offensive line since entering the league as a rookie in 2010, but injuries have been problematic for a player who missed 11 games in 2017, four games in 2015, and seven games in 2012.
Clark is one of the league’s most underrated defensive linemen despite being Pro Football Focus’ seventh-highest-graded interior defender at Pro Football Focus who has been a stout run-stopper. In addition to being a stout run defender, Clark has improved as a pass-rusher in each of the last two years. In Clark’s last 28 games, Clark has 10.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hits to go along with 14 tackles-for-loss.
As for the Bears’ inactives, there are no surprises here:
