Catching up on injury news around the NFC North:
Detroit Lions: Receiver Calvin Johnson’s right knee injury does not appear serious, coach Jim Schwartz told reporters Monday. “I wouldn’t label his significant right now,” Schwartz said. Johnson suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s 28-20 loss to Pittsburgh and did not return.
Chicago Bears: Middle linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer (rib) did not practice Monday, but coach Lovie Smith said he hopes Hillenmeyer will be available for Sunday night’s game at Atlanta. Defensive lineman Israel Idonije (knee) and running back Adrian Peterson (knee) are unlikely to play against the Falcons. Here’s a full Bears injury report from ESPN Chicago’s Jeff Dickerson.
Green Bay Packers: Offensive tackle Mark Tauscher participated in part of practice Monday on the day he officially re-signed. Coach Mike McCarthy said it is “going to probably take him some time to get ready.” Here’s a full Packers injury report from Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee.
