The Green Bay Packers have a lengthy injury report ahead of their Monday night tilt with the Detroit Lions. 20 players are currently listed with an assortment of ailments, but a couple of new developments really jump out.
First, Aaron Rodgers appeared on Thursday’s report as a limited participant with a knee injury. Rodgers hadn’t previously been on the report and those present for the Packers’ media availability today didn’t offer any immediate insight as to what had happened. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, running back Jamaal Williams was a full participant in practice after missing Sunday’s game against the Cowboys with a concussion. Williams left the Packers’ Thursday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles after a brutal hit by Eagles lineman Derek Barnett. Speaking after practice, Williams said he didn’t even remember the play.
#Packers RB Jamaal Williams, who was cleared from the concussion protocol today, said he didn't remember #Eagles DE Derek Barnett's hit that knocked him out until he got to the hospital. He said he plans on playing against the #Lions Monday night.— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) October 10, 2019
Also of note, tight end Robert Tonyan did not participate in practice, nor did safety Darnell Savage, cornerback Tony Brown, or wide receiver Davante Adams. Adams, who’s battling turf toe, said he’s trying to be careful with the injury so as to not jeopardize his entire season.
Elsewhere on the list, starting center Corey Linsley was a limited participant as he recovers from a concussion and both Bryan Bulaga and Jimmy Graham were given veteran rest days.
Stay tuned through the weekend, as the final report will come out on Saturday for Monday night's game.
