Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall did not practice on Friday with the team and remains questionable for Sunday’s game against the Packers, according to head coach Marc Trestman.
Marshall tweaked his ankle against the Jets Monday night but returned to the game. He was not the same after the injury, catching only one pass. If Marshall can’t go, the Bears will look to Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan to try and fill the void left by Marshall.
It certainly makes a difference for the Bears offense.
Questionable’s on the defense
Both Jared Allen and Chris Conte were listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. According to Adam Hoge, there seems to be some doubt that Allen will play Sunday.
Allen was at Halas Hall Friday but was sent home by the team to rest for the remainder of the day.

The Bears will likely be with at least one of their starting safeties on Sunday as Ryan Mundy has called probable to play. Mundy left Monday’s game in New York with a shoulder injury.
He fully participated in practice today.
OUT for Sunday’s game
The Bears have listed Shea McClellin, Roberto Garza, Matt Slauson, Sherrick McManis and Jerimiah Ratliff as out for Sunday’s game.
McClellin could be day-to-day after this week. Upgrading him from his previous week-to-week status. Ratliff still hasn’t passed the concussion protocol required to make him play again.
Both Garza and Slauson could be upgraded as day-to-day with their injuries.
