Vikings vs. Packers: Green Bay's Mid-Week Injury Report

Jonathan Daniel

Mike McCarthy addressed several of the Packers' injuries in his press conference on Wednesday.

With the Vikings coming to Lambeau Field on Sunday for a divisional battle, the Packers will need all hands on deck. That goes double for the defense, which will have to deal with a healthy and dangerous Adrian Peterson. Coach Mike McCarthy ran down the status of his injured players in today's press conference, shown on Packers.com. While it's not pretty, a few key players should be ready to go on Sunday.

Player Injury Participation
OLB Clay Matthews Hamstring Did not practice
CB/S Charles Woodson Collarbone Did not practice
CB Sam Shields Knee Did not practice
WR Donald Driver Thumb Did not practice
RB Johnny White Concussion Did not practice
DL C.J. Wilson Knee Did not practice
DL Ryan Pickett Quadriceps Did not practice
T Marshall Newhouse Wrist Limited participation

With Wilson and White suffering their injuries on Sunday against New York and a few other injuries already well-known, the only surprises to the report were Driver, Pickett, and Newhouse. However, McCarthy said that he expects Pickett to be ready to practice by Friday, and for him to be active for Sunday's game. The coach showed no sign of concern on Newhouse's availability either.

However, Wilson's status is less clear. His injury will likely keep him out against the Vikings, but McCarthy did not indicate that he would definitely miss the game. McCarthy did say that Clay Matthews would be re-evaluated on Friday, but that it would be "a stretch" for him to play on Sunday. As for the other defensive injuries, neither Woodson nor Shields will be ready to play on Sunday.

Also note that Greg Jennings is not listed on this report, as Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette astutely pointed out.
