Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara, who missed one game with a hamstring injury, will play Sunday against the Packers.

Four starters, however, will not. Receiver Taylor Gabriel and tight end Ben Braunecker remain in concussion protocol, right tackle Bobby Massie has a high-ankle sprain and inside linebacker Danny Trevathan has an elbow injury. None of them practiced this week.

The Bears did not need to submit a status update on Pro Bowl defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, who remains on injured reserve with an elbow injury. The team figures to activate him Saturday and play him Sunday at Lambeau Field.

“I like what I’ve seen all week long from him,” coach Matt Nagy said.

Defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris, who has a foot injury, and receiver Javon Wims, who hurt his knee against the Cowboys, are questionable to face the Packers. Both were limited Friday.

Returner Cordarelle Patterson figures to play as well. He missed part of Thursday’s practice with a head injury but returned in full Friday.
