Packers have long injury report ahead of Thursday Night Football
The Green Bay Packers have a long injury report in Week 11 — seventeen players are on it in total.
On a short week with the Tennessee Titans visiting Lambeau Field on Thursday Night Football, it’s hardly ideal.
With it being a quick turnaround between games, it’s difficult to draw too many conclusions from the injury report.
Typically, a player not practicing is a bad sign, but on a short week, it could just be to give them more rest.
Packers Week 11 injury report vs. Titans
According to the Packers’ Week 11 injury report, they held a walk-through on Tuesday, so it is an estimation.
They estimated that five players wouldn’t have practiced on Tuesday: left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (knee), wide receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle), cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle), and guard/tackle Elgton Jenkins (knee).
We can assume Campbell and Doubs will be out. They didn’t play last week, so it would seem this game will come too soon for their return. Jean-Charles may also be out.
Predicting Bakhtiari and Jenkins’ status isn’t as easy. It’s entirely possible they are being held out to rest before Thursday’s game. But it also wouldn’t be surprising if they don’t play as it would be two games in five days.
Eight players were listed as limited participants at practice: cornerback Rasul Douglas (calf), edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare (ankle), running back Aaron Jones (shin), wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder), cornerback Keisean Nixon (calf), quarterback Aaron Rodgers (right thumb), guard Jon Runyan Jr. (knee), and edge rusher Preston Smith (shoulder/groin).
Four players were listed as full participants on Tuesday: inside linebacker Krys Barnes (concussion), kicker Mason Crosby (back), wide receiver Christian Watson (ankle), and defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt (foot).
Hopefully the Packers will have the majority of the limited and full participants available on Thursday night.
