Packers injury report best we’ve seen in a while … a long while

Finally, the Packers have something to cheer about when looking at the injury report. Raymond T. Rivard photograph

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I took a peek at the Green Bay Packers’ injury report issued this afternoon.

For the first time in ages … and I mean at least the past year … the report shows that the Packers are just about injury-free. Take away the players on IR and those not expected back for some time, such as Chad Clifton and Mike Neal, and it’s nearly spotless.

In fact, it’s so clean and so different from what we see on the San Diego Chargers’ side that we could probably do a hop, skip and jump in celebration.

Well, maybe not, but it sure is something to be pleased with … especially at midseason.

Here’s what the Packers published today. Looks like for the first time in recent memory the Packers are going to hit the field in relatively good shape
