Pre-Game Injury Report: Giants at Packers

New, comments

The Green Bay Packers injury report is as light as it will ever be. From Packers.com:

Player Pos. Injury Fri. Participation Fri. Status
Bryan Bulaga T Knee Full participation Probable
Chad Clifton T Hamstring/Back Did not participate Probable
Randall Cobb WR Groin Limited participation Probable
Evan Dietrich-Smith C/G Illness Did not participate Probable
Robert Francois LB Hamstring Did not participate Doubtful
Greg Jennings WR Knee Full participation Probable
James Starks RB Ankle Full participation Probable

All the guys listed as probable will be playing barring some significant aggravation. Clifton hasn't practiced on a Friday in a couple of years, his veteran knees and ankles play better on Sunday with the rest, so there's nothing to see there. It looks like Dietrich-Smith came down with something, but I'd be shocked if he wasn't available for backup duty on Sunday. Francois hasn't practiced in a couple days since injuring his hamstring, but he hasn't played on defense in a few weeks and the special teams will have had a couple days of practice to adjust for his absence.

The Giants have almost an identical injury report. Several players are listed as probable, and all of them are expected to play. They should only be without one player, Mark Herzlich, who like Francois, is a backup inside linebacker. Both teams will be as healthy as they can get.
