The Packers released the first injury report for the week on Monday, and some new players are on it while some others may be getting back on the practice field this week.
Practice designations are an approximation because the team didn’t actually practice, but had there been a workout, TE Brandon Bostick (concussion), LB Jamari Lattimore (quad) and G Josh Sitton (back) would all have sat out. Also listed as “did not participate,” along with QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), were RB Johnathan Franklin (concussion) and DE C.J. Wilson (ankle) whose injuries were reported after the game. Wilson’s was first reported as a knee injury but is now an ankle.
Also new to the injury report is T Marshall Newhouse (shoulder) though he was listed as “limited” as a practice approximation.
The good news is some of the players who have been out for the Packers were also listed as limited, meaning there’s a chance they could return to the practice field for real on Tuesday.
T/G Don Barclay (knee), DE Johnny Jolly (groin), LB Nick Perry (foot/ankle) and CB Sam Shields (hamstring), who all missed Sunday’s game vs. Minnesota, are in that category.
