It’s hard to believe that this will be the last injury report of the season. I haven’t said this much in my lifetime, but I am glad this disastrous Packers season will finally be over. The Packers have a lot to clean up this offseason if they want to return to prominence. That’s for another day. The Packers will travel to Detroit on New Year’s Eve for the season finale, and there are a few new people on this weeks list.

The Packers currently have three wide receivers on the injury report. Davante Adams still hasn’t participated in practice since suffering a concussion at Carolina. Assuming the Packers are smart, Davante won’t play again this season. Jordy Nelson is dealing with a shoulder injury that has caused him to miss practice all week. Geronimo Allison is dealing with an illness that has also kept him out of practice all week. The Packers wide receiver core could be pretty thin come Sunday. He isn’t a wide receiver, but TE Richard Rodgers hasn’t practiced all week with a shoulder injury.

Just like last week and seemingly all season, Nick Perry, Clay Matthews, and Ahmad Brooks find themselves on the injury report. Perry is still dealing with the ankle and shoulder injuries that caused him to miss the Vikings game. He hasn’t practiced all week. Ahmad Brooks (back/shoulder) and Clay (hamstring) were limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The Packers could be without their top two pass rushers for the third game in row.

The Packers secondary was thin last week and could be again this week. Three key members of the secondary are listed this week. Cornerbacks Davon House (shoulder/back) and Damarious Randall (knee) missed last week’s game. Both have been limited in practice this week. Rookie safety, Josh Jones, has a shoulder injury but has been able to practice in full all week.

A new addition to the injury report on Thursday was DT Mike Daniels. He was added to the injury report with a shoulder issue and caused him to be limited in practice. Fellow DT Quinton Dial is still dealing with a knee issue and was also a limited participant on Thursday.

Running back, Aaron Jones, has a knee injury and is likely out for Sunday. In a meaningless game with nothing to play for, its probably best he doesn’t go. Especially if the Packers believe Jones is part of their future. Another key offensive player, Jahri Evans is still dealing with a knee injury that forced him to sit out last week against Minnesota. He hasn’t practiced yet this week and doesn’t appear he will play on Sunday.

Packers sit at 7-8. A win on Sunday won’t do them any good. If they win they can pick as high as 18 in the draft. If they lose and get some help, they can pick as low as 11. Seven picks could be the difference in getting an impact player that they need or just another guy.
