The Green Bay Packers escaped from Cincinnati mostly unscathed, unlike previous preseason games, but there are a couple of injuries to report. The first was suffered by defensive lineman Ryan Pickett, who had to come out of the game in the second quarter with a calf injury. The extent of the injury is still not known, but he did not return to the game. Pickett will undoubtedly be evaluated over the weekend and the team should provide an update by Monday's practice.

Also leaving the game was tight end Tom Crabtree, who has been playing with the first team offense in the absence of Jermichael Finley. Crabtree took a nasty hit to his shoulder from Taylor Mays in the first quarter and had to exit the game. According to Cheesehead TV, who spoke to Crabtree's PR representative Alex Tallitsch, Crabtree will have an X-Ray to determine the extent of his injury. Tallitsch also said that Crabree does not believe that the injury is bad.

Ryan Taylor and Marc Tyler also left the game briefly with injuries, but were able to return.
