Packers left tackle Chad Clifton sidelined*

CHICAGO -- Just jumping over from our in-game Countdown Live chat to let you know that the Green Bay Packers played their second series without left tackle Chad Clifton, who left with a neck stinger. His return is questionable.

Second-year player T.J. Lang has replaced Clifton. That will be a tough swap for the Packers, who will have to find a way to deal with Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers. I counted three plays Peppers made on that second drive.

*Update: Clifton returned with 7 minutes, 40 seconds left in the second quarter.
