The injury report has been a little different this week with the game being on Monday instead of Sunday. On Saturday, the Packers officially announced that Davante Adams, Darnell Savage, and Robert Tonyan will not play on Monday. With Adams missing his second consecutive game, look for the Packers to lean on the running game again. Speaking of the running game, it is getting a boost with the return of Jamaal Williams. Williams was cleared from the concussion protocol after the vicious hit he took against the Eagles a couple weeks ago. Look for safety Will Redmond to fill in for the injured Darnell Savage.
Corey Linsley was also cleared from the concussion protocol and will start at center on Monday night. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Linsley had a streak of 2,768 consecutive offensive snaps before he suffered the concussion.
Surprise name on the injury was Aaron Rodgers. He’s been limited in practice this week with knee injury. It does not sound concerning and 12 should be good to for Monday night.
Cornerback Tony Brown practiced for the first time this week on Saturday. He was unable to play last week against Dallas. With only practicing one day this week in limited fashion, Brown is probably still iffy to play on Monday.
This week’s injury report is lengthy, but it looks worse than it is. We know for sure that Davante, Savage, and Tonyan are out. Everyone else who was limited in practice this week should be good to go with the exception being CB Tony Brown. He’s probably the only one whose status is still in question. This Lions team is playing well and is well coached. The Packers haven lost to the Lions four consecutive times for the first time since the 80’s. The Packers lost their last home game, they cannot drop two in a row at Lambeau.
