Packers tackle Clifton probable vs. Ravens
Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy didn't need to see much to be optimistic that Chad Clifton will be able to play Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens.
The veteran tackle has had little work since injuring a hamstring in Green Bay's victory over Detroit on Nov. 26, but McCarthy liked what he saw in practice on Saturday.
"I feel better about him today than I did two days ago," McCarthy said of Clifton, who is listed as probable for the game despite having limited work throughout the week.
"I feel very good the way he came out of the week," McCarthy said. "Today, the way he responded to his work yesterday was definitely a positive. We'll see how the next 50 hours go, but he looks like he has a chance to be ready to go."
Rookie T.J. Lang is Clifton's backup and has gained starting experience at both tackle spots in recent weeks, but is questionable for the game because of a concussion he sustained in practice Thursday.
Packers linebacker Jeremy Thompson was released from a Green Bay hospital yesterday morning.
Thompson was taken by ambulance from the team's practice facility after spraining his neck toward the end of practice Friday.
Ravens LB Suggs receives restraining order
A woman has taken out a temporary restraining order against Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs.
The document was filed in District Court of Maryland on Friday. The order dictates that Suggs cannot abuse, contact or enter the residence of the woman, pending a court hearing on Dec. 11.
There is no arrest record for Suggs. Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne said the team is "aware of the situation" and has "discussed the matter with Terrell."
Vikings WR Berrian cited for going 104 mph
Minnesota authorities say Vikings wide receiver Bernard Berrian has been cited for driving 104 mph in a 60-mph zone, days after police clocked teammate Adrian Peterson going 109 mph in a 55-mph area.
Minnesota State Patrol Capt. Matt Langer said that Berrian was cited for speeding on I-694 in Oakdale about 9:40 p.m. Monday.
