Coach Lafluer said on Friday that reserve OL Cole Madison suffered a torn ACL in practice. This injury doesn’t really have an impact on this game, Cole is usually a healthy inactive on game day. It is significant because of what Madison went through to get back on the Packers roster. Hopefully he is able to fully recover and continue his NFL career.
Tight end Robert Tonyan was a full participant at practice this week for first time since the Dallas game when he hurt his hip. He is still listed as questionable, but all signs point him to finally getting back on the field. This will be the first time all year that the Packers will have their full complement of TE’s available for the same game.
Fullback Danny Vitale has been limited all week with a knee injury. He is questionable for Sunday night, but he will most likely play. Vitale is has the potential to have a major impact in the passing game. The Packers need to get back to getting their backs the ball in the passing game. That was very effective.
The Packers will most likely have everyone healthy for Sunday night. The Niners won’t have Joe Staley, Matt Breida, and Dee Ford. They will more than likely have George Kittle and Emanuel Sanders back, but they will not be at 100%. If the Packers want the road to the Super Bowl to go through Green Bay, they need to take advantage of a short-handed San Francisco team.
