There are 13 players on the Packers’ Week 13 injury report.
It seems the Green Bay Packers are starting to get a bit healthier.
The injury report for Week 13 is still a long one — 13 players in total are on the report — but only one player didn’t practice on Wednesday.
Center Corey Linsley is expected to miss some time with a knee injury and unsurprisingly sat out of practice on Wednesday. The good news is that everyone else on the roster practiced, even if only limited.
Cornerback Jaire Alexander and safety Will Redmond were the only two players listed as full participants on the injury report, with everyone else limited.
That includes safety Darnell Savage, who suffered a back injury in Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears. Savage has impressed over the past few weeks with a run of good performances, most notably this past week with two interceptions against the Bears.
A number of players who were on the injury report last week, including wide receivers Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, tight end Robert Tonyan, and cornerback Chandon Sullivan, aren’t on this week’s injury report which is good news.
Only four players are on the Philadelphia Eagles’ injury report this week.
Five-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Fletcher Cox didn’t practice on Wednesday due to a neck injury, while tight end Zach Ertz was limited due to an ankle injury.
Entering the stretch run of the season, the Packers will play three of their remaining five games at Lambeau Field, including this week. If they can win all three of their games at home, they’ll finish no worse than 11-5.
Under Matt LaFleur, the Packers have only lost at Lambeau Field twice. They have an 11-2 record in home games under LaFleur. However, don’t forget the Eagles were one of the teams to leave Lambeau with a victory.
But things have changed since then. The Eagles are 3-7-1 and in third place of the NFC East. This is a game the Packers will be expected to win.
