The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have ruled the following players inactive for tonight's game at Lambeau Field.

Chicago Bears: WR Dane Sanzenbacher, TE Kyle Adams, OT Jonathan Scott, G/C Edwin Williams, DT Matt Toeania, DT Nate Collins, S Jeremy Jones

Green Bay Packers: RB James Starks, WR Greg Jennings, WR Jarrett Boykin, DE C.J. Wilson, CB Davon House, S M.D. Jennings, S Sean Richardson

The biggest news from tonight's inactive lists is the Packers playing without Jennings, who led the team in receiving yards from 2008-10 and was listed as "doubtful" for tonight's game with a groin injury. Jennings has  43 receptions for 628 yards and five touchdowns in 10 career games against the Bears.

James Jones will start in Jennings' place.

Jennings' contract and long-term future with the Packers has been issue recently. By sitting tonight, Jennings misses a $25,000 "per-game active" roster bonus in his contract.
