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|
|Junius Coston||T/G||Ankle||Did Not Participate||Questionable|
|Al Harris||CB||Back||Full Participation||Probable|
|Ruvell Martin||WR||Back||Did Not Participate||Questionable|
|Michael Montgomery||DE||Knee||Full Participation||Probable|
|Vernand Morency||RB||Knee||Full Participation||Probable|
|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.
