GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Nike Shoes Wholesale . - A bye week gave Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers some much-needed time to rest a sore hamstring.The injury news isnt as promising for two beefy guys who protect Rodgers in the pocket.Starting guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang each sat out practice Wednesday with injuries suffered the last time the Packers played, a 44-23 loss at New Orleans on Oct. 26. Sitton and Lang are the Packers best offensive linemen, and the longest-tenured players on what coach Mike McCarthy considers one of best front fives in his nine seasons in Green Bay.Now, there are questions about the line going into Sunday nights NFC North showdown against the Chicago Bears.The best offensive lines in my opinion are the ones that play week in and week out. The timing, the communication, particularly the non-verbal communication, happens so fast at the line of scrimmage, so its definitely a big part of the flow of your offence, McCarthy said.Lang was carted off the field in New Orleans with a left ankle injury. Sitton said he may have torn a ligament in his left big toe in the second half of the same game, but gutted it out through the end.First few days, it was pretty swollen and pretty sore. So its come a long way, said Sitton, the left guard.How Sitton and Lang respond to treatment the next few days will be telling about whether they will be available Sunday.At least the Packers got Rodgers back for the first full practice after the bye. Rodgers, who tweaked his hamstring while scrambling against the Saints, followed a rehab program during the off week and got acupuncture to help with the injury.McCarthy said his franchise quarterback looked good at practice. Still, some dynamics have changed since the Bears and Packers last met on Sept. 28, a 38-17 win for Green Bay at Soldier Field.Besides the uncertainty on the line, the Bears figure to have Jared Allen back; the veteran defensive lineman missed the teams first meeting with an illness. While not a real running threat, Rodgers does rely on his mobility to help extend plays.Asked about compensating for potentially being without Lang and Sitton or being cautious with his hamstring, Rodgers said Well, I take care of my body pretty well, and I trust that by Sunday that its not going to be an issue.I just have to play my game and if something happens I might dial it back a little bit, Rodgers said.But hes having such a good season that dialing it back for Rodgers might mean an average year for anyone else.Rodgers leads the league with a 113.6 passer rating. He has thrown 19 touchdowns in helping lead the Packers to a 5-3 record, which included a six-game stretch without an interception.What makes the season more impressive is that Green Bay hasnt had the production expected out of the running game with Eddie Lacy and James Starks. That in part is due to a lack of opportunities with the Packers up-tempo offence scoring on quick-strike drives.While receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb have been torturing secondaries, rookie wideout Davante Adams is still emerging as a third target. Also, Green Bay hasnt had a consistent threat at tight end since Jermichael Finley got knocked out last season by a neck injury.Well, its just about finding the right matchups for us, whatever that might be. Jordy and Randall have had a lot of targets go their way. Theyve been open a lot, Rodgers said. But you know this is a progression offence, as the West Coast offences are, and Im going to go through (them) and look for the guy thats open.Notes: The Packers did get three defensive starters at practice with safety Morgan Burnett (calf), cornerback Sam Shields (knee) and end Datone Jones (ankle) all returning at full participation. Rodgers was also officially listed as a full participant. ... Green Bay signed guard Jordan McCray to the practice squad while releasing running back Michael Hill. ... The team announced that is testing the addition of 200 standing-room only tickets for the first time for the next two games, against the Bears followed by the Eagles. That would increase Lambeau Fields capacity to 80,935. The tickets are priced at $75.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Genaro Armas at http://twitter.com/GArmasAP Wholesale Nike Shoes Free Shipping .com) - The Chicago Cubs reportedly signed recently-acquired outfielder Dexter Fowler to a one-year contract on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct. He has a phone hearing with the department of player safety, which limits any potential suspension to five or fewer games.The Denver Broncos remain in a class of their own at the top of the TSN.ca NFL Power Rankings, ahead of the Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots. After destroying Philadelphia, to the tune of 52-20, the Broncos have won by an average of 22.0 points per game through the first four games of the season. Moving up this week, the Indianapolis Colts ran roughshod over the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars, good enough to climb from 14 to eight, while the San Francisco 49ers did a similar job on the St. Louis Rams and moved from 15 to nine. San Diego, with an impressive rally against Dallas, moved from 24 to 20 despite a growing list of walking wounded. Washington also climbedd, from 31 to 26, with their first win of the season at Oakland. Discount Nike Shoes Online. Shredded by the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears fell from the ranks of the unbeaten and dropped from five to 10, while Joe Flaccos five interceptions at Buffalo knocked the Ravens down from eight to 14. Atlanta was game in the Sunday nighter against New England, but injuries are hampering the Falcons too, so they fall from 11 to 15, and the woeful Tampa Bay Buccaneers sink to 31 from 25 after collapsing late against Arizona.
