Nine players are on the Green Bay Packers’ injury report for Week 4, although the majority of them practiced on Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers held a jog-through practice on Wednesday, so it’s important not to draw any conclusions from it.

However, the Packers did release their initial injury report for Week 4. While nine players are on the injury report, most of them practiced.

That includes cornerback Jaire Alexander and wide receiver Christian Watson.

Packers injury report: Jaire Alexander, Christian Watson limited

According to the Packers’ injury report for Week 4, offensive linemen Elgton Jenkins (knee) and Caleb Jones (illness) were the only two players not practicing on Wednesday. It sounds like it was a rest day for Jenkins.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) participated in practice. He was limited.

Cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin), running back AJ Dillon (knee), linebacker Jonathan Garvin (hip), wide receiver Allen Lazard (ankle), tight end Marcedes Lewis (groin), and wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) were all limited during Wednesday’s practice.

So, although there are many players on Green Bay’s injury report this week, it’s at least encouraging that most of them were able to practice.

It’s good to see that Alexander and Watson were able to practice. Alexander exited Sunday’s game early due to a groin injury and wasn’t able to return, while Watson didn’t play at all due to a hamstring injury.

The New England Patriots look set to start with backup quarterback Brian Hoyer this week.

Starter Mac Jones is dealing with an ankle injury and he didn’t practice on Wednesday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that Jones is “likely to miss multiple games”.

Hopefully, the Packers will get some of their injured players back in Week 4. Today’s practice was just a jog-through, so it’s still too early to say which players could be available this week.
