The Green Bay Packers held their Friday practice in London after arriving earlier this morning
The Green Bay Packers look to have a pretty clean bill of health going into Sunday’s game in London, as only 3 players are listed on the report:
- Questionable – S Adrian Amos (Concussion)
- Questionable – S Tariq Carpenter (Abdomen)
- Questionable – DL Devonte Wyatt (Quadricep)
All other players who had been listed on the injury report through the week were not given injury designations for Sunday’s game.
That includes starting OTs David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins, who will suit up together for the 3rd straight game. The Green Bay Packers are still looking for continuity along the OL so the unit can gel, and getting the same starting five for a 3rd straight game will only help that process.
Bakhtiari was listed as a DNP today, but LaFleur mentioned today’s session was more of a jog-through than full practice. The Team did its red-zone installs on Thursday this week so it could keep today’s practice shorter.
Per Coach LaFleur, Amos was given a “Questionable” designation because he still has not cleared concussion protocol yet. This shouldn’t alarm Green Bay Packers fans as the concussion protocol is a series of checkpoints as the player returns to action.
The signs are still positive that Amos has a good chance of playing on Sunday. Signs are also good that CB Jaire Alexander will be able to play on Sunday as he was an FP for the 2nd consecutive day. While he doesn’t have a designation, LaFleur noted Alexander would be evaluated prior to kickoff for his availability.
Rookies Devonte Wyatt and Tariq Carpenter are also both “Questionable”. Of the two, Wyatt is less likely to play because he was a DNP the past two days, meaning it’s possible Jonathan Ford will be active for his first NFL game.
However, the more likely route is either Jack Heflin or Chris Slayton will get elevated from the practice squad to the active roster. Also, there’s a strong chance S Micah Abernathy will be elevated due to Amos’ listing.
