Marquez Valdes-Scantling is on the Packers’ injury report for Week 15.

Four players didn’t practice for the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday, ahead of this week’s road game against the Baltimore Ravens.

According to the team’s first injury report of the week, tight end Dominique Dafney (ankle), quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe), wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion), and tackle Billy Turner (knee) all missed practice.

Wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) and Malik Taylor (abdomen) were limited. Running back Aaron Jones (knee) was also limited.

That’s important to note as Jones dealt with a knee injury earlier in the season and he wasn’t on the injury report a week ago. It’s perhaps the reason why he only had five carries in the victory over the Chicago Bears.

Rodgers not practicing was to be expected as he continues to deal with a toe injury.

The biggest news of the day was David Bakhtiari’s return to practice. According to the injury report, he was limited on Wednesday.

Punter Corey Bojorquez is also on the injury report due to a left knee injury, but he was able to practice in full, a good sign.

Fourteen players are on the Baltimore Ravens’ injury report. Notably, former MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson didn’t practice on Wednesday. He exited the Ravens’ loss to the Cleveland Browns with an ankle injury and was unable to return. This will be something to watch throughout the week.

Jackson’s status for this week will have a huge impact on the game. If he’s able to play and is anywhere close to 100 percent, it should make for a close contest between two Super Bowl contenders. But if the former MVP is out this week, the Packers will have to be considered the favorites.

As ever, we’ll learn more as the week goes on and both teams update their injury reports for Week 15.
