Defensive end Jared Allen (illness) is the headliner among the defensive questionables for the Bears on Friday for their Sunday game against Green Bay. Also receiving that designation are safety Chris Conte (shoulder) and wideout Brandon Marshall (ankle).
Five Bears have been ruled out. They are offensive linemen Matt Slauson (ankle) and Roberto Garza (ankle), linebacker Shea McClellin (hand), cornerback Sherrick McManis (quad) and nose tackle Jeremiah Ratliff (concussion).
Free safety Ryan Mundy (shoulder) and defensive end Trevor Scott (foot) are probable.
