Packers Week 5 Injury Report: Running backs and tackles practice on Wednesday

New, comments

Green Bay got some promising news on the injury front today.

On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers practiced for the first time since last Thursday’s win over the Chicago Bears — a win that took a heavy toll on the team on the injury front. However, the Packers got some encouraging news regarding their injured players today, as all but one player on the 53-man roster was able to participate in some fashion.

It is worth noting that Wednesday is the Packers’ non-padded practice, and some of these statuses may change on Thursday when the team does put on the pads. However, the fact that both injured running backs — Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams — were participating is a positive sign, and the fact that Williams was a full participant is nothing short of a pleasant surprise.

Meanwhile, the Packers also saw their injured starters at both offensive tackle spots working on a limited basis Wednesday, an encouraging sign for a team that has not had both of them on the field together since the second preseason game.

Here is the Packers’ report for Wednesday.
