It seems that the Packers have dodged a bullet.

Even though the team released its longest injury report of the young 2015 season on Wednesday, there is reason for optimism on that front. Six of the 12 names on the report practiced fully, and it was a bit of a shock to the casual observer to see Datone Jones' name with "FP" instead of "DNP," given the ugly hit he took on Monday.

The other issue that has some good news is Davante Adams' ankle, which reportedly was going to keep him out a few weeks but which is apparently not as serious as first advertised.

Check out news on both of those injured Packers, and much more in today's curds.

His usage will be on a game-by-game basis, but he certainly made the most of his snaps all over on Monday, recording nine pressures (per PFF) on 35 pass-rushing snaps.

Well this is a relief - according to the receiver himself, it's not actually a high ankle sprain, like some of the reports on Monday night indicated. Instead, it's a low sprain and there's still a chance he could play on Sunday.

Datone Jones avoided concussion, and protocol that comes with it | ESPN Wisconsin
After Jones took a nasty helmet-to-helmet hit from linebacker Joe Thomas, the reaction on Twitter was almost universal - that a concussion was the best-case scenario. Instead, he didn't even have that, and was practicing fully on Wednesday.

Packers becoming comfortable at being uncomfortable |
As the injuries rack up, the Packers keep filling in with young and inexperienced players and not missing a beat. And that's thanks to Ted Thompson for identifying the players and Mike McCarthy and his staff for having them ready to go.
