The Green Bay Packers' injury report is a MASH unit with 12 players listed just one day before doing battle with the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
Several players have been tabbed as either "limited" or did not practice at all in the few days of preparation leading up to the atypical Thursday game.
It will be telling on Wednesday who will be available and who won't when the Packers release their daily injury report and game day status projections of probable, questionable, doubtful or out.
Among those that practiced on a limited basis on Tuesday were quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), linebacker Nick Perry (foot/ankle) and offensive lineman Don Barclay (knee). The Packers would receive a boost from all those players, but it's not looking like Rodgers will play this week.
Players who have yet to practice this week include defensive lineman C.J. Wilson (ankle), tight end Brandon Bostick (concussion), running back Johnathan Franklin (neck/concussion) and linebacker Jamari Lattimore (quadricep). All would stand a better chance of playing if they practiced on Wednesday.
Head coach Mike McCarthy will address the media at a press conference to be aired following practice at 12:30 p.m. CT on the team's official website.
Later in the afternoon, the team will depart for Detroit to spend the evening in Michigan the night before the game.
