Lands on IR

Ford (hamstring) was placed on the Packers' injured reserve Saturday.

Ford was sidelined for the Packers' previous three games and apparently was not nearing a return. In his absence, Anthony Johnson and Zayne Anderson could see some extra reps providing depth at safety behind Jonathan Owens and Darnell Savage.

Won't play vs. Bears

Ford (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.

Ford will be sidelined for his fourth game this season in Week 18, this time due to a hamstring injury. In his absence, rookie seventh-rounder Anthony Johnson figures to pick up any scraps at safety left by Darnell Savage and Jonathan Owens.

Unavailable Thursday

Ford (hamstring) did not participate at the Packers' practice Thursday.

Ford has now missed each of Green Bay's first two sessions of the week, Wednesday's walkthrough and Thursday's practice, placing doubt on his chances to go Sunday versus the Bears. The safety has one more practice to return to the field Friday, but if he can't go in Week 18, Anthony Johnson is a candidate to see an increase in workload against Chicago.

Pops up on injury report

Ford (hamstring) was considered to be a non-participant at the Packers' walkthrough Wednesday.

Ford played through a back issue in Green Bay's 33-10 win over the Vikings in Week 17, but he is now apparently nursing a hamstring issue. The safety will look to erase any concern about his availability for Sunday's crucial matchup with the Bears by logging a full practice at one of the team's final two sessions of the week.

Will play Sunday

Ford (back) is active ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Ford popped up on Green Bay's injury report as a limited participant in Friday's practice due to a back issue, but it seems as if he'll play through the pain in Week 16. The 29-year-old is coming off an eight-tackle outing in Week 15, and he'll likely start alongside Jonathan Owens in the Packers' secondary Sunday.

Could play Week 16

Ford (back) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Ford was a late addition to the Packers' injury report, as he popped up as a limited participant in Friday's practice due to a back issue. The 29-year-old safety has been productive when he's been on the field this season, but if he's forced to miss his fourth game of the year in Week 16, expect Jonathan Owens to start at strong safety.

Active against Kansas City

Ford (biceps) is active for Sunday night's game against Kansas City, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Ford missed the last two games due to a bicep injury and was limited in practice this week. After being listed as questionable, he's been cleared to return to action for Sunday's primetime matchup.

Could return Week 13

Ford (biceps) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday night's game against the Chiefs, Wes Hodklewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Green Bay's starting strong safety has missed the team's last two contests with this biceps issue, but he was able to log a week of limited practice sessions, and he's got a chance to return in Week 13. If Ford is unable to suit up this weekend, Anthony Johnson would likely make the fourth start of his career in the Packers' secondary.

Limited participant at practice

Ford (biceps) was a limited participant at the Packers' practice Wednesday.

Ford has been sidelined for two straight games while dealing with a biceps injury, so he'll look to build off of Wednesday's practice as the week goes on. The safety has recorded a career-high 58 tackles through eight games this season and his return would provide a major boost to Green Bay's secondary ahead of their matchup with the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football.
