The Green Bay Packers and Jacksonville Jaguars released their first game status injury reports of the season on Friday, two days in advance of their week one matchup in Jacksonville. The Packers’ report consists almost entirely of special teams contributors, as no starters appear on the report.
One thing to keep in mind is that the NFL eliminated the “Probable” designation this year, meaning there are just three designations available to teams from now on: Questionable, Doubtful, and Out.
For the Packers, two players - Jeff Janis and Justin Perillo - are listed as Questionable. Janis practiced in full all week, while Perillo returned on a limited basis on Friday with a knee injury. The team has three players listed as Doubtful: safety Chris Banjo, wideout Trevor Davis, and linebacker Jayrone Elliott. Once again, these players are expected to make the bulk of their contributions on special teams. Davis was the only one of these players to practice this week, however, as he was limited on Friday. Finally, rookie cornerback Josh Hawkins is listed as Out for Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury. That will take the Packers’ corner group down to four.
For the Jaguars, just three players were listed on the report, but one of them, defensive tackle Roy Miller, was a full participant in practice all week and did not have a game status listed. There are two key players listed as Questionable: running back Chris Ivory, who was limited all week with a calf injury, and defensive end Jared Odrick, who has a jaw injury.
Here are the full reports for Sunday’s game.
Questionable: WR Jeff Janis, TE Justin Perillo
Doubtful: S Chris Banjo, WR Trevor Davis, OLB Jayrone Elliott
Out: Josh Hawkins
Questionable: RB Chris Ivory, DE Jared Odrick
