Giants-Packers Practice Injury Reports: No JPP, Randall upgraded to full participation on Thursday

New, comments

Green Bay looks set to have one of its second-year corners available on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers and New York Giants both are well into their practices as they prepare for Sunday’s Wild Card game, and each team appears likely to have a key player or two unavailable due to injury.

The Packers, as usual, have a more lengthy injury report this week. Among the players to follow are Randall Cobb, who has been limited both days this week, Bryan Bulaga (who was downgraded from a full participant on Wednesday to limited on Thursday), and Damarious Randall (who upgraded from limited to full). All told, the Packers appear on track to have at least Randall back in the secondary, which should be a nice boost to the banged-up cornerback unit.

Note that Randall did not play in the two teams’ meeting back in week 5.

Likewise, it would be a surprise if Bulaga cannot play. He will be desperately needed on Sunday, however, as the Giants’ defensive line is an excellent group that has given opposing offensive lines fits all season long.

One reason that line may be less than its usual stellar self is the groin injury suffered by left defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who would normally line up opposite Bulaga. JPP is all but a sure thing to be inactive on Sunday, having missed both practices this week.

Here are the injury reports for both teams so far this week.
