Packers Travel To Atlanta on Sunday Night: Pre-Game Injury Report

New, comments

Another week for the Green Bay Packers and another 15 players listed on the injury report. The four players listed as out were all out last week too (Bulaga, Collins, Neal, and Zombo) however Zombo did return to practice this week as he's eased back in after a broken shoulder blade. That means RT Marshall Newhouse will start again and hopefully he'll allow fewer than the two sacks he allowed last week. S Morgan Burnett will also have to improve on his deep coverage skills if he's going to replace Collins, and stop biting on the play action.

Quarless is listed as doubtful with a knee injury, and I have no idea what happened to him. It probably means we'll see even more of TE Tom Crabtree, and maybe an appearance by rookie TE D.J. Williams on offense. LB Brad Jones is listed as questionable with a nagging hamstring injury, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him inactive on Sunday. It might even give rookie LB Vic So'oto his first shot at playing time on defense.

I expect all nine players listed as probable will play, but the fact that Matthews has missed practice all week is curious. Mike McCarthy told reporters Matthews did not participate because of the treatment he received on his ailing quad. While I expect him to play, I don't expect he'll be at 100% or anywhere near beast mode.

The Falcons are in good health, but they'll be without starting C Todd McClureThe Falcoholic isn't too worried about it, but it could be something the Packers could exploit. DE John Abraham came up as limited in practice on Friday, and he wound up listed as questionable (50/50 chance). His absence, in addition to that of DT Jonathan Babineaux, could mute their already withering pass rush.
