The Packers are down four key players in the first half, as injuries have hit the Packers hard for the second week in a row.

At halftime of Saturday night's preseason game, the Green Bay Packers trail the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 39-14. However, the score is far less important than the players who have gone down with injuries in the first 30 minutes of the game.

On the first series, Eagles safety Eric Rowe landed on Randall Cobb, who was attempting to make a catch along the left sideline. Both players' weight appeared to come down hard on Cobb's right shoulder, and he got up immediately favoring the right arm. Cobb was taken back to the locker room shortly thereafter. So far it is merely speculation, but the injury is not believed to be a broken collarbone. Check here for our full set of updates on Cobb.

A few series later, right tackle Bryan Bulaga left the game with an ankle injury. Though he did not return to the game, Bulaga remained on the sideline, having his ankle examined, but apparently smiling and joking around with his fellow offensive linemen.

The third key player to leave the game was defensive back Micah Hyde, who was carted off to the locker room. Later on, the injury was reported as a neck injury, but no details on the severity of that injury have been released.

Finally, starting inside linebacker Sam Barrington pulled himself off the field briefly to be replaced by Jake Ryan. Barrington was briefly looked at by the Packers' training staff, but he did not appear to be limping or injured, however, and may have just been winded.

We will update this story with any news on these players as we learn of it.
