Or maybe they aren’t. We discussed the Green Bay Packers possibly being without half their starting secondary on Sunday. They will definitely be without safety Morgan Burnett, who has been ruled out.
Cornerback Kevin King is listed as doubtful and if history holds, that means he won’t play.
For the Minnesota Vikings, we already knew quarterback Sam Bradford would be out, but they’ll also be without their top receiver. Stefon Diggs, who torched the Packers once last year, has been listed as out. That’s the biggest surprise — and development.
Look for the typical Case Keenum checkdowns to the running back, which, by the way, is no longer Dalvin Cook. He’s on injured reserve.
If the Packers’ defense, even a beat-up one, can’t stop this offense, they’re not stopping anyone.
For Packers, linebacker Ahmad Brooks is also listed as doubtful. Per usual, tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga are questionable. However, Bulaga played last week.
Cornerback Davon House and running back Ty Montgomery are also questionable. Linebacker Joe Thomas is out.
