The Packers’ injury list is getting shorter.

The Packers have been shorthanded on both sides of the ball lately, battling clusters of injuries at wide receiver and cornerback for the past few weeks.

And while there’s still a long way to go before Sunday, early indications seem to show the Packers will be catching a bit of a break.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said in Tuesday’s press conference that wide receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison would be “worked into practice” today, as would cornerback Jaire Alexander.

Cobb has been on the shelf with a hamstring injury for about a month, while Allison has battled both a concussion and a hamstring injury over the past few weeks. Alexander, meanwhile, hasn’t played since he injured his groin late in the Packers’ shutout win over the Buffalo Bills on September 30.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is also expected to practice on Tuesday, which would be the first time he would participate in the first practice of the week since his week one knee injury.
