Packers rule out three players vs. Commanders in Week 7
The Green Bay Packers have ruled out three players ahead of their matchup with the Washington Commanders in Week 7.
As expected, the Green Bay Packers will be without wide receivers Randall Cobb and Christian Watson and offensive lineman Jake Hanson when they take on the Washington Commanders in Week 7.
All three have been ruled out on the team’s final injury report for Week 7.
Let’s take a closer look at the injury report.
Packers injury report: Three players ruled out in Week 7
It seemed likely that Cobb, Watson, and Hanson would be ruled out this week, as neither had practiced on Wednesday or Thursday. They were held out again on Friday and ruled out of the Week 7 matchup.
The good news is that no other Packers player has an injury designation for this game, meaning they are good to go.
Edge rusher Rashan Gary practiced in full all week and will play.
Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins didn’t practice on Friday after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday, but it’s possible he was just being rested today. He has no injury designation, so will play on Sunday. The question is whether he will remain at right tackle or move back to guard.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is good to go despite continuing to deal with a thumb injury. He was limited at practice on Friday.
The Commanders are dealing with a number of injuries ahead of this game.
Washington has ruled out five players in Week 7: wide receiver Dyami Brown, cornerback William Jackson III, tight end Logan Thomas, quarterback Carson Wentz, and running back Jonathan Williams.
They also placed cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields on injured reserve this week.
This is a game the Packers will be expected to win. More importantly, it’s one they need to win to avoid losing three in a row.
