Offensive linemen Josh Sitton, T.J. Lang active for Packers, tight end Bennett a go for Bears


GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — Starting guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton are active for the Green Bay Packers for Sunday night's game against Chicago, while tight end Martellus Bennett is active for the Bears.

Lang has a left ankle injury, while Sitton has a toe injury. The Packers' two best offensive linemen had been listed as questionable after missing some practice time this week. Sitton and Lang were hurt two weeks ago in a loss to the Saints.

Starting safety Morgan Burnett is also active for Green Bay. Burnett has been dealing with a calf injury. He had been downgraded from probable to questionable on Saturday.

Bennett is playing after hurting a rib in practice this week. Chicago's second-leading receiver, with 47 catches, had been listed as questionable for the Packers game.
