One good thing to come out of the disaster in California last week was that the Packers are still relatively healthy as team. This week’s injury report could be the shortest one I’ve seen in December in a long, long time.

 

The one significant injury from last week is right tackle Bryan Bulaga. He left the game last week and was unable to return. He was diagnosed with a sprained MCL. We saw backup tackle Alex Light try to block Nick Bosa, and it did not go well at all. Bryan Bulaga surprisingly was able to practice in a limited capacity this week and is questionable for Sunday. If he is unable to go, I do not need to see Alex Light at right tackle. I would feel more comfortable sliding Billy Turner over to tackle and starting Lucas Patrick at guard.

The only other two players whose status for Sunday is still up in the air is backup CB Tony Brown (heel) and reserve safety Will Redmond (foot). Brown was limited on Friday, and Redmond was a full participant. Both players are questionable for Sunday.


The Packers are about as healthy as they could be going into week 13. There is no such thing as an easy game in the NFL, but the Packers should take care of business against the 2-9 Giants regardless if any of the three players sit on Sunday. It’s time for the Packers to catch fire in December, and there is no reason not to with three very winnable games on the schedule.
