WR James Jones practiced on a limited basis for the second straight day on Saturday and has a chance to return on Monday night after missing the last two games with a knee injury. Jones is listed as questionable on the injury report.

“He did more than yesterday, so we’ll see where he is,” Head Coach McCarthy said. “It’s up in the air. He’s doing everything he can.”

Speaking with reporters after practice, Jones labeled himself “50-50″ and said it all will come down to how the knee feels on Sunday morning after the work he has done with it throughout the week.

“I’m mostly just going to see how it reacts tomorrow,” he said. “If it reacts pretty good, we might have a decent shot. If I wake up sore and all that stuff, I don’t know.

“I don’t know if I’ll go this week, next week, but I felt better. I felt better this week than last week, so I’m excited about that.”

In other injury news, Packers CB Sam Shields sat out practice on Saturday and is listed  with an injury to his “toes,” but he’s probable for the game.

“Sam got stepped on yesterday,” McCarthy said. “Frankly, I just held him for precaution. I’m hopeful it’s nothing more than that.”

TE Ryan Taylor (knee) sat out practice on Friday but is listed as probable. He has missed the past two games. LB Brad Jones (hamstring) was a full participant in practice all week and is also probable, set to return after missing the past three games.

LB Nick Perry (foot), who practiced one day last week, did not practice at all this week and is listed as doubtful.

    James Jones is really needed but he should not return until he’s 100%. Could he play against Chicago on a limited capacity?

    Some foods contain more sulfur than others, which is why eating things like beans, cabbage, cheese, soda, and eggs can cause gas that will peel the paint off the walls!

    If a person were to expel gas from their backside continuously for 6 years and 9 months, they would produce gas with the equivalent energy of an atomic bomb.

    Considering how Tillman and Jennings are BIG turnover causers I think the last thing we need is a wide receiver to play who is isn’t 100% healthy.

    I think the Packers will err on the side of caution with James Jones and they should err on the side of caution. Get him back 100%.
