The four Green Bay Packers that did not make the team flight will officially miss Thursday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. However, the Packers listed Blake Martinez and Bashaud Breeland as questionable to play.
Among the four players ruled out, Nick Perry’s absence looms largest. The Packers have minimal depth at outside linebacker, and Perry has enjoyed decent success against the Seahawks in the past (2.5 sacks, 13 tackles in four games). As for the others, Randall Cobb will now have missed three of his team’s last five total games in 2018 while Kevin King’s total will rise to three. Kentrell Brice had started every game this season prior to his ankle injury.
The injury report did provide some positive news for Green Bay. The team removed Aaron Rodgers, Jimmy Graham, and both starting offensive tackles from the report, leaving no doubt as to their availability Thursday. Martinez and Breeland appear to have a decent shot at playing despite the questionable tags given their appearances last week. Martinez saw limited work in practice Wednesday while Breeland saw full action.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks removed Chris Carson from the injury report after his second straight day of full participation in practice. On defense, K.J. Wright looks like a long shot to suit up after missing the entire week of practice. The team officially listed him as doubtful.
