All-Pro inside linebacker De’Vondre Campbell has missed the Green Bay Packers‘ past three games, and he may miss another in Week 12.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that Campbell won’t practice on Wednesday.

It’s still early in the week, but it’s not a great sign for his availability this week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Packers face a tough challenge against an excellent Eagles offense on Sunday Night Football, and it won’t get any easier if they are without their All-Pro inside linebacker.

The only good news is that Green Bay has good depth at the position. Rookie first-round pick Quay Walker has shown star potential in recent weeks, while backup Krys Barnes has also made some excellent plays.

Campbell has been a key player in the middle of Green Bay’s defense since being signed last year.

He has played in 24 regular-season games for the Packers, making 210 tackles, two sacks, seven quarterback hits, seven pass defenses, three interceptions, and one defensive touchdown.

Again, it’s still early in the week and it’s possible Campbell will be able to return to practice in the coming days. But it’s not a great sign. It follows a similar pattern to recent weeks.

Campbell hasn’t practiced since suffering a knee injury in the team’s loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 8.

So, we’ll see. The Packers have been dealing with several injuries in recent weeks. The hope is that the mini-bye following a Thursday game will help a few players get back to 100 percent.

But Campbell’s return may have to wait. He remains out of practice on Wednesday.
