The Green Bay Packers enter Week 12 with a lengthy injury list.

The team announced on Wednesday that they had placed tight end Luke Musgrave and running back Emanuel Wilson on injured reserve. They will miss at least four games.

The Packers also ruled out running back Aaron Jones and safety Darnell Savage for Thursday's matchup against the Detroit Lions. Tight end Josiah Deguara is doubtful.

Winning a road matchup against the Lions was already a challenging task. Now, the Packers will have to do it without several starters and important players.

The Lions only ruled out one player on their injury report. Guard Jonah Jackson won't play in Week 12 due to a wrist injury.

Which players are inactive for both teams in Week 12?

Green Bay has so much it needs to improve from the previous meeting between these teams in Week 4. Detroit rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns in a comfortable 34-20 victory at Lambeau Field. Even before we factor in all of the injuries, the fear was for a similar outcome in this matchup.

It's a big challenge for Jordan Love. He won't get much help from the run game without Aaron Jones, and he won't have all of his best pass-catchers available. The Lions pressured Love throughout the game in Week 4. The offensive line needs to prevent that from happening again in this matchup, or the game could fall apart quickly.

The Packers are coming off a good win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but a victory on Thanksgiving would go down as one of the best under Matt LaFleur.
