The Packers have been without injured defensive ends C.J. Wilson (knee) and Mike Neal (shoulder).  Both could miss Sunday’s game against the Bears.

The Packers played with only four healthy defensive linemen last Sunday against the Detroit Lions: veterans Ryan Pickett and B.J. Raji and rookies Mike Daniels and Jerel Worthy.

Miller is expected to give the Packers help against the run and the pass.  He signed with the Bears as an undrafted free agent in July 2011 and spent 2012 training camp with the Bears before his release on Aug. 31.  He was signed to the Packers practice squad on Oct. 23rd.
