The entire Green Bay Packers roster is questionable for Sunday’s game with the Cleveland Browns. Alright, we’re exaggerating, but the guys who haven’t practiced all week didn’t practice on Friday, either.
Here’s the injury report.
- Jarrett Bush — questionable
- Casey Hayward — questionable
- James Jones — questionable
- Mike Neal — questionable
- Brad Jones — out
- Clay Matthews — out
- Nick Perry — out
- James Starks — out
- Ryan Taylor — out
It’s not looking terribly promising for the questionable guys either.
“James Jones, Jarrett Bush and Mike Neal, I don’t think any would be available if we were playing today,” coach Mike McCarthy said.
The two biggest areas of concern for the Packers are outside linebacker and receiver. If Neal can’t play, they’re down to just rookies Andy Mulumba and Nate Palmer at outside linebacker.
Without Jones, the Packers would have just three receivers — Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and Myles White, who was just brought up off the practice squad. This situation isn’t quite as dire, though. The Packers can use tight end Jermichael Finley as a receiver and run more two tight end sets.
If the Packers lose another linebacker, Dom Capers is going to have to get awfully creative.
