Packers vs. 49ers: Thursday Injury Report

New, comments

Mike McCarthy continues to bring Packers fans good news on the health front this week.

David Welker

In his Thursday press conference, coach Mike McCarthy addressed the status of the Packers' wide receivers who have been limited by injury this week in practice. Randall Cobb was a limited participant due to illness (he showed signs of the flu bug that had been going around the locker room) but that's a step up from Wednesday, when he was sent home. McCarthy said that Cobb was still "under the weather, but he's going to go."

As for Jordy Nelson, he was also limited with that nagging ankle injury. McCarthy mentioned that he ran some deep vertical routes towards the end of practice and the coach was pleased with his progress. The third injured receiver, Jarrett Boykin, wasn't so lucky, as he will not play on Saturday due to the injury he suffered in Week 17.

Here's the full list:

Player Injury Thursday Practice Status
Clay Matthews Knee Full
Jerron McMillian Personal Full
Dezman Moses Hamstring Full
Randall Cobb Illness Limited
Jordy Nelson Knee Limited
Jarrett Boykin Knee Did not practice (out)
Jerel Worthy Knee Did not practice (out)

That certainly looks like good news for the Packers' offense, and hopefully Aaron Rodgers will have his full complement of receivers at full strength (or close to it). Also notable is that Clay Matthews and Dezman Moses were not limited in practice at all. It looks like their limited reps on Wednesday were just precautionary. We'll have the official game status report when it is released Friday afternoon.
