Now that the Green Bay Packers have 10 players on I.R., their injury list has shrunk to 9 players. Meanwhile, the Jets, fresh off their bye-week, have three players listed on their injury report and those three are all expected to play. Yep, nothing fair about it, but the Packers have to make the best of it.
The Packers list is almost evenly split between the questionable and probable players. I don't expect any of the questionable players will play and that includes DE Cullen Jenkins, RB Dimitri Nance, DE Ryan Pickett, or RT Mark Tauscher. I'm not sure what happened to Nance, but it's likely he was hurt near the end of practice on Friday. RT Bryan Bulaga should be effective as a sub for Tauscher, but the loss of Jenkins and Pickett tears the heart out of the defensive line. DE C.J. Wilson and DE Jarius Wynn will fill in as best as they can.
The probable players, LT Chad Clifton, S Nick Collins, WR Donald Driver, and CB Charles Woodson, should all play through their injuries as they've done over the past week(s). OL Marshall Newhouse will probably be listed as inactive whether he's healthy or not. According to the Journal-Sentinel, none of the players eligible to come off the PUP list, CB Al Harris, SS Atari Bigby, or RB James Starks, are going to return to the active roster this week.
