Packers WR Greg Jennings (groin) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Bears, but Chicago CB Charles Tillman (shin) will play.

The Packers listed Jennings as doubtful with a groin injury. He had five catches for 34 yards in Week One last week. Jennings, who is in a contract year, had 67 catches for 949 yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games in 2011. James Jones will start in Jennings' place.

Tillman was listed as questionable after getting hurt in the team’s Week One win over the Colts, but will start on Thursday night. The Bears’ top corner, Tillman has not missed a game since 2009 and had 12 passes defensed and three picks last season. He returned two of those interceptions for touchdowns.

The rest of the Bears inactives are WR Dane Sanzenbacher, S Jeremy Jones, OL Edwin Williams, DT Matt Toeaina, OT Jonathan Scott, TE Kyle Adams and DT Nate Collins.

The following Packers are also inactive: WR Jarrett Boykin, S Sean Richardson, CB Davon House, RB James Starks, LB Terrell Manning and DE C.J. Wilson.
