The Green Bay Packers released their Injury Report for the Divisional Round of the Playoffs

 

The Green Bay Packers will have a relatively clean slate of health heading into Saturday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers in Lambeau Field.

The team will likely be without WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling, whose deep speed has helped open up the offense, as the team has averaged north of 30ppg in games MVS has played.

On the positive side, it did sound like Head Coach Matt LaFleur was intimating that both CB Jaire Alexander and LT David Bakhtiari would be able to play on Saturday, though he wouldn’t let on much more than “we’ll see where they are pre-game” for either.

Not listed, because they aren’t yet on the roster, are LBs Whitney Mercilus and Za’Darius Smith. Both have a chance to play and Coach LaFleur noted that we’d know if either or both will play on Saturday by Friday’s roster move deadline, as both need to be added to the Active Roster prior to Saturday.

WR Randall Cobb was also not listed on the injury report as he was added back to the active roster following the team’s final practice. Cobb will play on Saturday.

The Green Bay Packers did not give designations to LB De’Vondre Campbell, RB Aaron Jones, TE Marcedes Lewis, QB Aaron Rodgers, or T Billy Turner, who all were listed on the injury report at some point this week.

Campbell and Jones were working through injuries that led the Green Bay Packers to sit both in the regular season finale in Detroit. Both are now full-go for Saturday, a direct benefit of that game not mattering for seeding purposes.

Lewis was only listed because he got his weekly veteran rest day, so he has no injury to report.

Rodgers’ toe is doing much better as he’s been a Full Participant going on two weeks.

Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers must be elated that RT Billy Turner was a Full Participant all week after dealing with a knee sprain (suffered in Week 14) and a bout with COVID. Coach LaFleur noted Turner is good to go.
