The Green Bay Packers are seeing a few players go down with injuries as Thursday Night Football rolls along this evening. Jamaal Williams left the game on a stretcher early after taking a dirty hit from the Philadelphia Eagles’ Derek Barnett, but there are two other notable Packers dealing with injuries.
The first is right tackle Bryan Bulaga, the longest-tenured veteran starter on the Packers’ offensive line. Bulaga reportedly suffered a shoulder injury late in the first half and was replaced by Alex Light on the final series of the second quarter. That drive ended with a touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison to pull the Packers back within one point. Light remained in the game to start the second half.
Also injured is cornerback Tony Brown, the second-year pro from Alabama. Brown has not played a major role on defense this year in the regular season, but he has been a key part of the Packers’ special teams, particularly kickoff and punt coverage. Brown has a hamstring injury, and the Packers have officially ruled him out for the remainder of the game.
Finally, safety Will Redmond went down with an injury in the third quarter as well. He went straight to the injury tent to be evaluated, and the team has not announced a status for him for the remainder of the game. Josh Jackson came on to replace him as the Eagles scored a touchdown to extend their lead to 27-20.
