Packers Injury Report: 15 players listed on Thursday, but cornerbacks are improving

New, comments

Green Bay released its longest injury report of the year following Thursday's practice, but there's actually good news on it for the team's pass defense.

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers released their typical Thursday injury report this afternoon, and from the length of the report it looks ominous. However, compared to the team's Wednesday report, there are reasons to be optimistic about the secondary's potential to be at full strength for the upcoming game against the Detroit Lions.

The good news is that every member of the Packers' defensive backfield practiced in some manner on Thursday. This comes a day after two players, Casey Hayward and Damarious Randall, both sat out entirely on Wednesday. Hayward was limited today, while Randall returned from an illness.

Sam Shields and Quinten Rollins, who were both inactive a week ago and were injured against the Broncos, have practiced both days this week - Shields has been limited while Rollins has been a full participant. At this point it appears that all of these players are on track to play on Sunday.

Unfortunately, three starting offensive linemen showed up on the report this week. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga practiced on a limited basis on Thursday after sitting out the first practice of the week with a knee issue. The starting guards, T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton, both were limited with back issues.

Here's the full report from Thursday.
