The Green Bay Packers got some fairly solid news on the injury front on Wednesday, as all but two players on the team’s active roster suited up for practice. As the Packers get ready for their week ten game against the Miami Dolphins, the team plans to have a full-pads practice on Thursday, making Wednesday a lighter workload day.

The two Packers who did not practice on Wednesday were tight end Jimmy Graham and cornerback Kevin King. Graham has missed a handful of Wednesday practices this year, however, without missing any game action; therefore his absence today should only be concerning if he also misses some time on Thursday.

King’s injury seems more concerning, and Mike McCarthy confirmed before practice that he may not play on Sunday. His hamstring injury is the latest in a long line of ailments that have kept him in and out of the lineup over the past season and a half, missing a pair of games early this season as well as parts of a few other games.

Thankfully, three other players who left last Sunday’s loss in New England with injuries were all able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. Kentrell Brice and Bryan Bulaga both could not return to game action on Sunday, while Martinez did get back on the field briefly. That portends well for the players’ availability against the Dolphins this coming weekend.

Meanwhile, Miami listed a whopping 20 players on their injury report on Wednesday, but half of that number were listed as full participants. Another two players were non-participants but for non-injury reasons; meanwhile, quarterback Ryan Tannehill was a limited participant but Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirmed today that he will be ruled out for Sunday’s game. That leaves Brock Osweiler in line to start once again.
