As expected, the Green Bay Packers got good news on the injury front on Wednesday, as the team practiced in full pads a day ahead of their normal schedule. Tuesday’s lighter practice saw everyone but Aaron Rodgers participating in some capacity, and after Wednesday we now know which players are still working through some issues coming out of the bye week.
Although many key players returned to the field, there is still a large group of players who were limited on Wednesday. That includes the big-name players who have sat out the last few games, most notably Jaire Alexander, Geronimo Allison, and Randall Cobb. All three of them remained limited, though it appears they are getting on track to play on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.
Rodgers suiting up and working in full at practice was also a good sign, and he reportedly was wearing a lighter knee brace during the portion of practice that was open to the media compared to the one he has had in games recently. Rodgers has said that he hopes to be able to remove the brace entirely for Sunday’s game, which would be a sign that his knee has returned to full health. However, that appears to be a decision for the Packers’ medical staff, not Rodgers himself.
As for the Rams, there are three players on their Wednesday practice report, though they are sticking to a more conventional practice schedule with that practice being a lighter workload. Two starting defensive linemen, Michael Brockers and Ndamukong Suh, did not practice, but that is expected to be precautionary and they are still likely to play on Sunday. Wideout Cooper Kupp’s status is less sure, however, as head coach Sean McVay called his status “doubtful” for the game on Wednesday.
Here’s a look at both reports for Wednesday.
