Friday Injury Update for Week 12 at New Orleans

The injury report is looking longer for the Packers this week:

Player Pos. Injury Friday Participation Friday Status
Nick Barnett LB Knee Out Out
Jarrett Bush CB/S Ankle Did Not Participate Questionable
Chad Clifton T Knees Full Participation Probable
Colin Cole DT Elbow Full Participation Probable
Donald Driver WR Not Inj. Related Full Participation Probable
James Jones WR Knee Limited Participation Questionable
Aaron Kampman DE Calf Full Participation Probable
Charlie Peprah S Calf Limited Participation Questionable
Jeremy Thompson DE Groin Full Participation Probable
Scott Wells C Shoulder Full Participation Probable
Charles Woodson CB Toe Limited Participation Probable
DeShawn Wynn RB Calf Limited Participation Questionable

Mike McCarthy was asked if ""you have some sort of calf epidemic going through the team right now?" with three players recently listed with the injury. Barnett is out for the season, but the Packers haven't found someone worthwhile to put on the roster in his place, so he hasn't been put on the I.R. yet. Bush has been playing through injuries the past couple weeks, so he should play again this week, but mostly on special teams. Clifton and Woodson are always listed, but they always play. The injuries to Cole and Kampman are new, but I'd be shocked if either of them missed this game. Driver is back after missing a couple practices after his father wound up in the hospital and he'll play. Jones is battling another injury, but he's not likely to be activate in any circumstance. I don't know if Peprah and Thompson will play, but only Thompson would be likely to have any playing time. It looks like Wells should be good to go. Wynn might not play, but he's been inactive on and off the past couple weeks, so he's not likely to play a big role anyway.

The big news for the Saints is that RB Reggie Bush might play, but it seemed like he would play last week. Instead he sat that game at Kansas City out. RB Deuce McAllister should play although he's battling a knee injury. His ongoing battle with the league office (DE Will Smith is also involved) shouldn't keep him out either. It looks like WR Marques Colston will play too, but he can't be at 100%. That's a lot of skill players struggling with injury for New Orleans and it has to have some effect on their high powered pass offense.
