The Green Bay Packers No. 2 and 3 receivers just can’t stay off the injury report. Geronimo Allison missed two games with a concussion and hamstring injury. Now it appears he will miss a third with a groin injury.
Allison, who played last week, hurt his groin in practice on Thursday. The injury is severe enough that Allison has been listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game with the Patriots.
Meanwhile, Randall Cobb missed three games with a hamstring injury. He played last week, but he’s still listed as questionable this week.
You know what that means. Cobb is likely to play, but without Allison, the Packers will look for big things from rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Thus far, he seems to be delivering.
Valdes-Scantling has 14 catches for 257 yards and two touchdowns. He also sports an 18.4-yard average. Most of that damage has come in the last three games. Valdes-Scantling had 68, 103 and 45 yards the past three contests.
Who else is taking up space on the injury report? Linebacker Nick Perry (ankle) and safety Jermaine Whitehead (back) are also listed as questionable.
It’s a safe bet that all three questionable guys end up playing. And at least Allison has will have a front-row seat to watch Valdes-Scantling take his job.
