GREEN BAY, Wis. — Josh Sitton’s Packers reunion is off.

The former Pro Bowler, who was signed away from the Packers by the Bears this offseason, was ruled inactive for the Bears with a right ankle injury for Thursday night’s game. First-round pick Leonard Floyd, cornerback Tracy Porter and cornerback Bryce Callahan will be active. Whether they’ll play much is another question; six of the Bears’ seven inactives were decided Wednesday.

Quarterback Jay Cutler, as expected, is out because of a thumb injury. Cornerback Deiondre Hall and receiver Eddie Royal didn’t make the trip. Running back Jeremy Langford, nose tackle Eddie Goldman and cornerback DeAndre Houston-Carson round out the Bears’ inactives list.

The Bears didn’t announce a starter to replace Sitton, but backup center/guard Eric Kush is expected to take his place.
