Another day means another long injury report for the Green Bay Packers, as they continue to try to get back to full strength in time for the playoffs. Alex Green and T.J. Lang sat out once again with symptoms related to their concussions, while there were a few minor changes:
|Player||Injury||Thursday Practice Status|
|Tom Crabtree||Illness/hamstring||Did not practice|
|Alex Green||Concussion||Did not practice|
|John Kuhn||Unknown||Did not practice|
|T.J. Lang||Concussion/Illness||Did not practice|
|Jordy Nelson||Hamstring||Did not practice|
|Jeff Saturday||Neck/Shoulder||Did not practice|
|James Starks||Knee||Did not practice|
|C.J. Wilson||Knee||Did not practice|
|Jerel Worthy||Hamstring||Did not practice|
|Greg Van Roten||Unknown||Injured during practice|
The only major changes were that Erik Walden returned while John Kuhn was not at practice. Kuhn's absence was not explained. Greg Van Roten's absence left the Packers with only four of their active offensive linemen on the practice field. However, Mike McCarthy indicated that Van Roten's injury was not serious. McCarthy expects Saturday to practice on Friday and Lang to go through concussion testing before Friday's session. He also mentioned that the team's plan is for James Starks to return in time for the playoffs.
We'll continue to have more coverage of the Packers' injuries as the week goes along.
