As is the case each Friday, the Green Bay Packers announced their weekly injury report during head coach Mike McCarthy's press conference. All systems are go for a few key players, namely running back Eddie Lacy and tight end Brandon Bostick, as both are listed as probable.
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga is questionable for Sunday's game, and his availability will depend heavily on his performance and comfort in practice on Saturday. Here's the full report.

Mike McCarthy addressed a few of the injuries, starting with the Packers' right tackle. He said "If Bryan Bulaga feels he can go in this game, that will be part of the decision." He also said that the team does not believe in "saving" a healthy player to maintain that health for following weeks. In other words, if Bulaga says he feels good enough to play and the doctors agree, he'll start on Sunday. If he can't, McCarthy said that Derek Sherrod has been "getting better in practice" this week and that the coaching staff is confident in him.
As for Jones' injury, McCarthy said "It's a big opportunity" for Jamari Lattimore and Sam Barrington, and he also said that both have been working at the inside linebacker spot in Jones' place this week. The smart money is on Lattimore getting the start, but it would not be a huge shock to see Barrington get some snaps on defense as well.
As for the Jets, it appears that any key players on their report are ready to play. In fact, Rex Ryan indeed confirmed that Dee Milliner will play on Sunday.
