Week 15 in the National Football League is upon us, and the Green Bay Packers are one of the healthiest teams in the league. Rarely have the Packers had more than two key players listed as out of the final injury report, let alone miss a game this season. Many of the injury reports this season have seen one or zero people listed as “out”, and this week is no different.
First things first, there is no one listed as out yet, however that does not mean both Kevin King and Jimmy Graham will play.
Head Coach Matt Lefleur said he expect Kevin King to be ready to go. King did not play last week, but the Packers defense still gave the Redskins trouble the entire game.
Jimmy Graham has struggled all week with groin and wrist injuries, limiting him in practice. If he is unable to go, fans can expect more play from Robert Tonyan, who caught his first touchdown pass of the season against Washington in week 14. Expect to see more of Marcedes Lewis in the passing game also if Graham does indeed sit out.
Davante Adams was limited in Friday’s practice, but not listed on the final injury report.
As for the Chicago Bears, offensively they will be without wide out Taylor Gabriel as well as lineman Bobby Massie. On the defensive side of the ball, Danny Trevathan will miss his 5th straight game due to an elbow injury.
DE Roy Robertson-Harris did not practice today for the Bears, however he carries a questionable designation going to the weekend.
In other injury news, Prince Amukamara will play, and all signs point to Akiem Hicks being activated from injured reserve just in time for the NFC North showdown.
The full injury report for both teams is listed below.
