As rookie cornerback Damarious Randall knocked away Phillip Rivers 4th down pass on Sunday at the goal line, the Packers breathed a sigh of relief, as the defended pass would mean they would advance to 6-0 before their bye week. This bye week could not have come at a better time for the Packers, they are banged up, especially on offense. We thought it would be a good time to update where the Green Bay Packers stand in the injury department.
Jordy Nelson/WR- Done for the season with a torn ACL. This one hurts the most out of all of the injuries and you all know why.
Sam Barrington/LB- Foot injury, done for the season. Packers lose their starting inside linebacker here.
Josh Boyd/DL- Broken ankle, done for the season. A good rotational player that will be missed.
Sean Richardson/S- Another neck injury. Done for the season, possibly career over. Was the cover man for opposing tight ends.
Davante Adams/WR- High ankle sprain, has missed the last couple of games. Should be ready to go after the bye week.
Brian Bulaga/OT- Knee injury. Was originally expected to be out until after the bye week but came back against the Rams. Should be okay going forward. Is injury prone though so don’t bet on it.
Randall Cobb/WR- AC Joint sprain in week three of the preseason, hasn’t missed any time, but it has affected him. Is getting healthier by the week though.
James Jones/WR- Hamstring problems. Hasn’t missed any time. Shouldn’t be an issue going forward.
T.J. Lang/OG- Knee injury. What first appeared to be a knee injury wasn’t so bad. Didn’t miss any games. Packers avoided a disaster here.
Nick Perry/OLB- Shoulder injury. Missed the game against the Chargers. Should be able to play against the Broncos in two weeks.
Morgan Burnett/S- Calf problems. Burnett has missed all but one game this season because of calf problems. We have no clue when he will be ready to play. Something else is going on here.
B.J. Raji/DT- Groin. So far the 2015 B.J. Raji has been 2010 B.J. Raji. He has set the point of attack and dominated the line of scrimmage in 2015. He didn’t play Sunday against the Chargers because of a groin injury and by did they miss him. He should be ready to go against the Broncos.
