It’s all hands on deck against the Packers.

All but one Bears player listed as questionable in Friday’s injury report — safety Deon Bush — will play in Sunday’s rivalry game at Soldier Field. That list includes safety Tashaun Gipson (neck), Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), tight end Cole Kmet (shoulder), and tight end Demetrius Harris (foot).

The Bears previously ruled out two injured players for Sunday: cornerbacks Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion). Johnson has missed the last two starts because of the injury he suffered against the Texans, while Skrine has missed three starts since suffering the head injury against the Lions.

Their other inactives are offensive lineman Lachavious Simmons, nose tackle Daniel McCullers and receiver Riley Ridley.

The Packers are playing without star left tackle David Bakhtiari, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice Thursday, and defensive lineman Kingsley Keke, who has a concussion.

If the Bears beat the Packers on Sunday, they’ll make the playoffs. The same can happen if they lose but the Rams beat the Cardinals.
