Belated Week 8 Friday Injury Report

Denver's injury list is short but carries some big names on it. CBs Dre' Bly and Champ Bailey should play, but are both battling injuries. Former Packer WR Javon Walker is definitely out after knee surgery. QB Jay Cutler appears to be playing better with Walker than without, but he had his best game against a great Pittsburgh defense without him last week. It would appear that losing leading rusher RB Travis Henry would help the Packers, but RB Selmon Young might be better and he is certainly a better receiver.

Meanwhile the Packers' injury list just keeps getting longer.

Player Pos. Injury Friday Participation Friday Status
Will Blackmon CB Foot Out Out
Junius Coston T/G Ankle Did Not Participate Questionable
Bubba Franks TE Knee Out Out
Justin Harrell DT Knee Out Out
Al Harris CB Back Full Participation Probable
Cullen Jenkins DE Ankle Limited Questionable
Ruvell Martin WR Back Did Not Participate Questionable
Michael Montgomery DE Knee Full Participation Probable
Vernand Morency RB Knee Full Participation Probable
Frank Walker CB Knee Limited Doubtful
Scott Wells C Eye Did Not Participate Probable
Charles Woodson CB Foot Full Participation Probable
DeShawn Wynn RB Neck Full Participation Probable

A few starters on the list but Harris and Woodson have been listed every week this season. Without Franks that meant TE Ryan Krause was signed from the practice squad to take his place. Maybe Favre will even throw him a pass or two. With Blackmon already out and if Walker can't play they will be down to four cornerbacks, but since no one was signed from the practice squad, it appears that a safety can step at cornerback if needed. The only true starter that should be missing is RG Junius Coston, but former starting RG Jason Spitz should be fine as his replacement.
