The Packers have added Kevin King and JK Scott to the injury report.

A day before the Green Bay Packers take on the Indianapolis Colts, two players have been added to the injury report.

Cornerback Kevin King, who was set to return from a quad injury after missing the past five games, has now been added to the injury report with an Achilles injury and is questionable for tomorrow’s game.

Punter JK Scott could also miss the game. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Scott didn’t travel “due to a personal matter” and is also questionable. The Packers also announced that they have signed punter Drew Kaser to the active roster. If Scott isn’t available, Kaser will be active.

Losing King again would be a tough blow for the secondary. Josh Jackson has impressed after seeing more playing time while King has been out, but having King back on Sunday would’ve been a boost for the defense. Let’s hope his injury isn’t serious.

Scott did struggle in last week’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he battled windy conditions at Lambeau Field. The Packers will miss him in a dome game tomorrow if he’s unavailable.

The fact Scott didn’t travel is perhaps an indication that he won’t be playing, although the team has listed him as questionable on the injury report so there’s still a possibility he could travel in time to play.

This will be something to watch tomorrow morning ahead of the game, which kicks off at 3:25 p.m. CT.

The good news on the injury front is that another starting cornerback, Jaire Alexander, will return from a concussion, while wide receiver Davante Adams’ ankle injury wasn’t serious enough to force him out of this game.

But it’s far from ideal if both King and Scott are unable to play on Sunday. We’ll learn more about their chances of playing on Sunday morning.
