Typically, we receive more concrete injury information about the Green Bay Packers on the Tuesday of a Thursday Night Football week, but due to the fact that the team did a walkthrough instead of a practice, the Packers released an estimation of their injury report for their second-straight day. Nothing on Tuesday’s estimation of what would have happened at practice changed from Monday’s estimation, as four starters were listed as limited participants while tackle Dennis Kelly (back) was estimated to be a player who wouldn’t have had participated in practice on Tuesday.

The four Packers starters listed as limited are as followed: defensive lineman Kenny Clark (ankle), defensive lineman Dean Lowry (ankle), outside linebacker Preston Smith (oblique), and Kevin King (shoulder/back.) Smith and King missed last week’s game, but both Clark and Lowry played and finished the game for Green Bay. Head coach Matt LaFleur said that Smith not suiting up for Week 7 against Washington was “selfless,” indicating that Smith potentially could have played but would have returned to play too early for a justifiable recovery plan. King, who has been missing time with a shoulder injury, has had his injury designation adjusted to “shoulder/back” which is worth noting.

Like Green Bay, Arizona did not adjust their participation report much from Monday, either, with linebacker Jordan Hicks (limited, toe) being the team’s only deviation from their Monday estimation. The biggest names on Arizona’s Tuesday injury report are receiver DeAndre Hopkins (DNP, hamstring), linebacker Isaiah Simmons (limited, shoulder), and defensive lineman J.J. Watt (DNP, shoulder.)

The true roster-related news of the day in Green Bay, though, is the fact that wide receiver Allen Lazard, like Davante Adams a day before him, is now on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Lazard, who is unvaccinated per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, will have to spend at least five days on the list and miss Thursday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
