Pernell back at LB, TE Miller active for Bears vs Packers

The Chicago Bears have Pernell McPhee back at linebacker Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.

McPhee was activated from the reserve-physically unable to perform list after he recovered from offseason knee surgery. He had a career-high 64 tackles last season for the Bears.

Chicago waived fullback Paul Lasike to make room on the roster for McPhee.

Tight end Zach Miller (ribs) is active after being limited this week in practice. Starting cornerback Tracy Porter is also active after landing on the injury report on Wednesday with a knee injury.
