The Green Bay Packers continue to be a group of walking wounded as they look to extend their winning streak to nine games. We know about Jordy Nelson and his rib injury, and earlier on Wednesday, Davante Adams was ruled out of practice until Saturday.
However, there were two more receivers who popped up on the practice report on Wednesday in advance of Sunday’s NFC Championship game against the Atlanta Falcons. Those two are Geronimo Allison, who was a non-participant with a hamstring injury, and Jeff Janis, who was again limited with a quad injury. Janis was on last week’s report for the same injury, and did not practice on Wednesday before being limited the rest of the week. Since he played last Sunday, it is reasonable to expect him to be ready for Atlanta.
Allison’s appearance is a surprise, however, as there had been no significant reports that he was hurt coming out of the win over the Cowboys. With those four players in various stages of injury rehab, the Packers have just two wideouts who appear to be fully healthy: Randall Cobb and Trevor Davis.
The Falcons, on the other hand, have a short list of injuries, but they are significant ones. All-Pro wide receiver Julio Jones did not practice with a toe injury, though he is expected to play on Sunday. Atlanta also has three other players on the report, all of whom play key roles, including a pair of defensive starters.
Here are the reports for both teams from Wednesday.
