Finally, the Green Bay Packers are a mostly healthy team in the middle of the season. Ahead of their week eight matchup with the Los Angeles Rams and coming out of their bye week, the Packers listed just three players on the week’s final injury report, and all three of those players are listed as Questionable, the least-serious injury status available.
Those three players include a pair of wide receivers, one of whom is veteran Randall Cobb. Cobb has missed each of the past three games with his hamstring injury, and his last game was a forgettable one, as he dropped a pair of would-be first down receptions and fumbled late in the game against Washington. Although he was listed as questionable, Cobb was also listed as a full participant in the Packers’ Friday practice, which suggests that he is a good bet to play in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Joining Cobb as questionable are offensive tackle Jason Spriggs, who missed the Packers’ week six game after suffering an ankle injury in practice the week prior, and rookie wideout Equanimeous St. Brown. St. Brown appeared first on this week’s report with a knee issue and has been limited all week — if Cobb is able to suit up, that combined with Geronimo Allison seemingly being fully cleared could limit the rookie’s snaps.
Now to the really good news. The secondary should be at full strength this week, as cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Bashaud Breeland both received no injury status. Alexander was a full participant with Breeland still limited on Friday, but all signs point to Breeland making his Packers debut. Likewise, Allison was limited but did not have an injury status, so he should be ready to go as the Packers’ #2 outside receiver opposite Davante Adams.
For the Rams, wideout Cooper Kupp is the only starter on the injury report for this week. Kupp, who often lines up in the slot, is doubtful for the game, along with reserve linebacker Trevon Young.
