The bye week came at a good time for the Green Bay Packers. They are getting healthier ahead of their Week 7 matchup against the Denver Broncos.
Green Bay could get several key starters back against Denver, including running back Aaron Jones, inside linebacker Quay Walker, and safety Darnell Savage.
The Packers desperately needed their bye week to get healthy, self-scout, and make adjustments after tough losses to the Detroit Lions and Las Vegas Raiders. They aim to put things right against the Broncos on Sunday.
Here are the latest injury updates for Green Bay after Wednesday's practice.
Packers injury report Week 7
Limited participation during Wednesday's practice
- RB Aaron Jones (Hamstring)
- LB Quay Walker (Knee)
- CB Eric Stokes (Foot)
- DL Devonte Wyatt (Knee)
- G Elgton Jenkins (Knee)
- S Darnell Savage (Calf)
- S Zayne Anderson (Hamstring)
Did not practice on Wednesday
- LB De'Vondre Campbell (Ankle)
Head coach Matt LaFleur said that De'Vondre Campbell is "doubtful" to play against the Broncos on Sunday but noted that he didn't suffer any setbacks. They hoped to have him back after the bye, but Campbell's return from injury will likely have to wait at least another week.
There is plenty of encouraging injury news, however. Eric Stokes, who hasn't played since suffering a season-ending injury against the Detroit Lions in Week 9 last season, could make his highly-anticipated return. The Packers will likely have him on a snap count in his first game back, but it will be great to see him out there when he does return. Stokes could play this week.
Green Bay also hopes to get Darnell Savage and Quay Walker back from injury. Both suffered injuries in the Week 5 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders but have played well this season. Hopefully, they can both return this week.
