According to the Green Bay Packers’ Friday injury report, receiver Jayden Reed — who missed last week’s game against the Carolina Panthers — is expected to push through toe and chest injuries to see the field against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. As far as the positive injury news goes, though, that’s where it starts and ends for the Packers.
Five players were listed as doubtful for Green Bay’s upcoming game, including three players who are working off of the injured reserve: tight end Luke Musgrave (kidney), tackle Luke Tenuta (ankle) and running back Emanuel Wilson (shoulder). Joining those players as doubtful are inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (neck) and receiver Christian Watson (hamstring). Campbell, notably, said he’s no longer going to play through injury for the team. Watson has missed six games already this season with hamstring issues.

Beyond the players who were listed as doubtful, four other Packers were listed as questionable for the game: cornerback Robert Rochell (neck), safety Darnell Savage (shoulder), defensive lineman T.J. Slaton (knee/foot) and receiver Dontayvion Wicks (chest/ankle). If multiple receivers are out for this game, expect practice squadder Bo Melton to get the tap on the shoulder for another elevation. It’s worth noting here that the Packers do have an extra roster spot to play around with this week, as cornerback Jaire Alexander has been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team.
On the Vikings’ end of the injury report, the big question mark is whether or not receiver Jordan Addison (ankle) will play in the game. He’s currently listed as questionable for the game after being a limited participant in Thursday and Friday practices.
