Packers: Kenny Clark questionable for divisional round vs. Seahawks
Kenny Clark is questionable for the Green Bay Packers’ divisional-round game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The good news is that Kenny Clark practiced on both Thursday and Friday, but he is listed as questionable on the Packers’ injury report ahead of Sunday’s home playoff game against the Seahawks.
Clark has been dealing with a back injury, so it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent he’ll be even if he’s active and able to play. If healthy, Clark will be a key player on defense up against a struggling Seahawks offensive line. Let’s hope he’s able to play and make an impact in this game.
Outside of Clark’s injury, the Packers are close to being fully healthy.
Fullback Danny Vitale, running back Dexter Williams and defensive tackle Tyler Lancaster are all questionable due to illness. This has affected a few Packers players this week, but with two more days to go until the game, hopefully they’ll all be fine and able to play.
Everyone else on the injury report is ready to go. Overall, the Packers are healthy and will have the majority of their starters available in the divisional round, which is great news. But being without Clark would be a concern up front.
According to NFL.com, the Seahawks have listed guard Mike Iupati as doubtful to play this week. Former Lions edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah, safety Marquise Blair, tackles Duane Brown and George Fant, and defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson, are all questionable.
The Packers are the healthier of the two teams and they also get the benefit of playing at home. But this will likely be a close game between two teams that were in the mix for the NFC’s top seed throughout the season.
The Packers are almost at 100 percent, but they’ll be hoping Clark is available and ready to go on Sunday.
