The Green Bay Packers will need to get some good news on the injury front this week at practice, or else they are going to be in for some trouble this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Six players missed practice for Green Bay on Wednesday, and every one of them is in the starting lineup, along with a pair of key players who were limited.

The first surprising name on the did not participate list is tight end Jimmy Graham, who was listed with a knee injury. Graham did not appear to have any limitations in last week’s game in Washington, making this a surprise. However, it could also simply be a maintenance rest day for the veteran, who is in his ninth NFL season.

Joining him with new injuries after the loss to Washington are right guard Justin McCray and outside linebacker Nick Perry — both sitting out — and tackle Bryan Bulaga, who was practicing on a limited basis. Muhammad Wilkerson is also listed on the report, but with his season over, his move to injured reserve is merely a formality.

The Bills, meanwhile, have a lengthy list of injuries as well, but the only two non-participants were listed as having formal rest days. Five starters were limited in practice, including former Packer Micah Hyde and running back LeSean McCoy, but it appears that all are good bets to suit up on Sunday at Lambeau Field. McCoy in particular should be among the active players, telling reporters after practice that “I’m playing this week.

Here are the full reports from Wednesday.
