Green Bay Packers Week 8 Injury Report

The Packers injury report looks worse than it probably really is. There are 19 total players on the list, but two players are already ruled out and seven others are questionable. The Packers were without about half a dozen starters last week in Houston, but some of those guys could be back on Sunday.


Aaron Jones and Kevin King are already ruled out for Sunday. So we will see a heavy dose of Jamal Williams with some AJ Dillon sprinkled in. Josh Jackson will be opposite of Jaire Alexander again. As bad as the Vikings have been, their WR duo is legit. Josh Jackson will probably see his fair share of both Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen.

All pro left tackle David Bakhtiari returned to practice this week in a limited fashion after missing last week with a chest injury he suffered against Tampa. He is officially questionable for Sunday. If he can’t go on Sunday, Billy Turner will probably protect Aaron Rodgers blind side again.

A surprise addition to the injury report this week was kicker Mason Crosby. He is dealing with a calf and a back issue. He was only to practice on Friday this week and was limited. The team signed rookie kick Nick Vogel as an insurance policy incase Crosby can’t kick.

Running back/kick returner Tyler Ervin returned to practice in a limited fashion this week after not playing the past two weeks. He is still dealing with a wrist injury and is questionable for Sunday.

Three other members of the defense will be questionable for Sunday too. DT Tyler Lancaster (shoulder), safety Darnell Savage (quad), and safety Raven Green (oblique) were all limited practice participants on Friday.

WR Alan Lazard and LB Christian Kirksey were activated from IR this week, and the Packers have three weeks from the day they were activated to make a decision on them. There are still a lot of players listed, but the Packers are getting seemingly healthier each week.
