The Green Bay Packers have downgraded wide receiver Geronimo Allison to OUT and made cornerback Tony Brown to questionable for Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots.
Allison’s injury plagued 2018 season continues after he returned last week in the loss to the Los Angeles Rams following a concussion and a hamstring injury that caused him to miss the previous two games. He injured his groin in Thursday’s practice that quickly moved him the wrong direction on the injury report.
With Allison missing his third game in four weeks, this likely means more playing time for the rookie wide receivers in particular Marquez Valdes-Scantling who has really begun to emerge as a legitimate weapon for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He has caught 13 passes for 254 yards and two touchdowns in the past four games.
Brown is a new addition with a hip injury. He hasn’t seen much in the secondary rotation and his most notable play so far has been a questionable yet still foolish taunting penalty against the Detroit Lions.
He likely would have seen more action on special teams which is still not good.
As for the rest of the injury report, safety Jermaine Whitehead (back), linebacker Nick Perry (ankle) and wide receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) are all listed as questionable. All three practiced Friday, with Whitehead and Perry limited and Cobb a full participant per the Packers.
