CHICAGO (AP) — Packers linebacker Oren Burks (pectoral) will miss the game Thursday night against the Chicago Bears. He had been ruled out Wednesday.

Also out for the Packers are cornerback Ka'dar Hollman (neck) and wide receiver Darrius Shepherd (hamstring).

The Packers' other inactives are defensive lineman Keke Kingsley, offensive lineman Alex Light, guard Cole Madison and running back Dexter Williams.

Bears tight end Trey Burton will miss the NFL season opener against the Packers due to a groin strain.

Burton suffered the injury last week and was limited in practice throughout the week. The Bears had said he would be a game-time decision.

The Bears also will be without reserve tackle Rashaad Coward due to an elbow injury.

The other Bears inactives are cornerback Kevin Toliver II, running back Kerrith Whyte Jr., linebacker Josh Woods, defensive lineman Abdullah Anderson and wide receiver Riley Ridley.
