151124-nn1GREEN BAY — Today is a combination of normal-week Wednesday and Thursday schedules. This is not a normal week, as the Packers host the Bears on Thursday.

“The reality of it is the other team has to adjust to it, too. We have some history with Thursday games. We feel like we have a good schedule in place. Once you get to Thursday, it’s exciting. The preparation process is a real grind. The players are still sore from the previous game,” Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Tuesday.

In a rare scheduling quirk, the Packers will play on consecutive Thursdays. They’ll travel to Detroit next week for a Thursday nighter.

The big news is quarterback Aaron Rodgers does not appear on the Packers’ injury report, as he did last week with a sore shoulder. It’s also good news running back Eddie Lacy topped the 100-yard rushing mark in Sunday’s win in Minnesota for the first time this season.

“He’s definitely hitting the hole quicker now. He’s more decisive. He had 22 carries. I thought he got into a groove,” McCarthy said.
