The Green Bay Packers made a few significant changes to their injury report on Thursday as they prepare for their Week 17 matchup against the Detroit Lions. There were a few players downgraded from full participation on Wednesday to limited on Thursday, as well as one new name who showed up on the report for the first time.
Bryan Bulaga and Damarious Randall were the downgrades, as the two starters were bumped down a notch with their injuries. It seems unlikely that either player will miss Sunday’s game, but their status remain worth keeping an eye on up until game time. Joining them on the Limited list is inside linebacker Joe Thomas, who makes his first appearance on the report. Thomas was listed with a back injury.
On the other hand, Christine Michael’s absence from Wednesday is no longer a concern, as he returned to practice fully today.
Meanwhile, the Lions had no changes from their Wednesday injury report, which can be found here.
