However, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said that, barring a setback between now and Sunday, Nelson should be good to go against the Bengals. So, today is really a response to playing on Sunday night and the late return and the injuries that occurred in the game. He's been dealing with a quad injury. "That was my expectation when I came in here Monday morning as well". As long as the Packers are able to contain Green and don't let him take over the game in the way Jones can and has done before against the Packers, they should be able to stifle the Bengals offense and cruise to a victory.
Veteran outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who missed the Falcons game with a concussion sustained against the Seahawks, also practiced in full after clearing the concussion protocol. Last week, the Packers were without their two starting tackles as well as their leading receiver and best defensive lineman, not to mention Cobb going down in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.
A total of eight players were not seen on the practice field: safety Kentrell Brice (groin), cornerback Davon House (quad), linebacker Jake Ryan (reason unknown), linebacker Nick Perry (reason unknown), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hamstring), tackle Jason Spriggs (hamstring), Cobb and Bakhtiari.
When pressed if any of the injuries were season ending, McCarthy said no.More news: Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish step out amid extortion scandal
Still, the Packers' injury report this week resembled an All-Pro roster.
ESPN said that not only are they doing fine post-Super Bowl appearance, but that new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian should have silenced doubters.
When he has been healthy, he has produced at an extremely high level with more than 1,200 receiving yards in four out of the last five seasons that he has played along with recording 13 or more receiving touchdowns three times over that span.
"There's a ton of data that's collected throughout every individual's training each and every day", McCarthy said.
I hope and I think so! "I'm just trying to grow and expand it".
