Injury Report: Vikings at Packers

New, comments

The latest injury news for the Green Bay Packers, according to the Journal-Sentinel, is that rookie 2nd round DE Mike Neal is probably out for the season with a shoulder injury. Neal is not someone I've read having a history of injuries (unlike DE Justin Harrell). The above linked article also brought up LB Brady Poppinga, who is the latest Packer to have surgery, but it was arthroscopic (less invasive) and they could reasonable expect him back later this season.

The complete injury report from Packers.com is listed after the jump. As far as I've read, everyone listed as probable will play on Sunday.

LB Brandon Chillar and LB Clay Matthews are both listed as questionable, but the latest word from Mike McCarthy was that both will play on Sunday, barring any setback this weekend. The same appears to hold true for DE Ryan Pickett, though (very) big guys and ankle injuries often take a while to heal. RT Mark Tauscher could play, but he appears to be having trouble adjusting to playing with a shoulder harness.

The last player listed is rookie OL Marshall Newhouse, who was injured during practice this week. He hasn't been active roster all season, so is absence shouldn't cause any problem on Sunday.

For the Vikings, they've got 12 players listed, but the only player out is starting S Husain Abdullah, who is out with a concussion. The Vikings are expected to give 2nd year S Jamarca Sanford his 2nd career start, but I don't know if that's someone the Packers can beat. They previously lost CB Cedric Griffin for the season with a torn ACL after their game against the Jets, so their secondary has had a bad couple of weeks.
