Here's the Green Bay Packers injury report from Packers.com:

Player Pos. Injury Friday Participation Friday Status
Bishop, Desmond LB Hamstring Did Not Participate Questionable
Clifton, Chad T Knee Full Participation Probable
Colledge, Daryn G Illness Did Not Participate Questionable
Hall, Korey FB Hip Did Not Participate Questionable
Jenkins, Cullen DE Hand Limited Participation Probable
Martin, Derrick S Ankle Did Not Participate Probable
Matthews, Clay LB Hamstring Limited Participation Probable
Neal, Mike DE Side/Rib Did Not Participate Questionable
Underwood, Brandon CB Shoulder Limited Participation Questionable
Woodson, Charles CB Toe Full Participation Probable

CB Charles Woodson's bad toe got some press this week, but he's unsurprisingly back. Mike McCarthy said "he's ready to go." LG Daryn Colledge is an unknown since he's just come down sick. If it's a 24 hour bug, then he'll be starting on Sunday.

Despite LT Chad Clifton's chronically bad knees, he should play. DE Cullen Jenkins has a cast on his broken hand and he should continue to play through it. LB Clay Matthews's hamstring has been keeping him out of practice for weeks, but he was just fine against the Eagles. S Derrick Martin played through his bad ankle last week on special teams.

LB Desmond Bishop's bad hamstring has been bothering him for weeks and I expect he's out. They'll probably keep FB Korey Hall inactive and let FB Quinn Johnson go in his place. Mike McCarthy had some optimistic words about DE Mike Neal, but I bet he's out at least one more week. CB Brandon Underwood was still favoring his injured shoulder in practice, so he should be out. 

For the Bills, their big news is that FS Jairus Byrd is returning to the starting lineup. The secondary is their team's strength, and he makes it even better. They are missing starting LB Paul Posluszny, who's one of their best defensive players. P Brian Moorman is very good, he was in the top 10 last season for net average, and K Rian Lindell is probably not as good if he's their emergency punter.

The biggest problem concerns the players that are not listed. RB Ryan Grant is not on the report since he's on I.R. and out for the season. There is no way his absence isn't noticed at some point this season, and they have little depth behind RB Brandon Jackson. DE Justin Harrell was lost for the season last week, and with the injuries to Jenkins and Neal, the defensive line is thinning out. The Packers will be fine for this game, but they can't afford any more injuries at either position.
