Packers' tackle Chad Clifton has symptoms of a concussion

Green Bay Packers' left tackle Chad Clifton had signs of a concussion on Monday, but he has not been ruled out of Sunday's contest at Detroit.

Coach Mike McCarthy said there was no indication after last week's win over San Francisco that Clifton had anything wrong. The concussion symptoms showed up on Monday during a normal evaluation with team doctors.

Wednesday, Clifton took part in a jog-through at practice - an indication that he'll be ready for Sunday.

Defensive end Cullen Jenkins and fullback Korey Hall have been ruled out of Sunday's contest. Also, safeties Atari Bigby and Anthony Smith and corner Pat Lee did not practice Wednesday.

Clifton was a limited participant, along with Nick Collins, Clay Matthews, Ryan Pickett and Charles Woodson - all nursing lingering injuries.

Five Detroit players did not practice yesterday, including running back Jahvid Best and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch.

All told, 23 players were on the Green Bay and Detroit injury reports yesterday. The Packers are 8-4 as they get ready to play the 2-10 Lions.
