Because the Packers play a game on Thursday for Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions, they're required to release an atypical injury report on Monday afternoon, even though they won't practice.
The team basically states what a player's participation would be if they did practice, listing him as either limited, full or did not practice.
Attention will be heavily upon quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose status is still in the air for Thursday. With the Packers more or less in must-win mode, Rodgers would give the team the best team to win, but they won't do so at the expense of his health.
The question is whether Rodgers' collarbone is sufficiently healed to withstand a direct hit.
Observers will also be watching status of several other injured players, including defensive lineman C.J. Wilson, who was injured in Sunday's tie against the Vikings, as well as players like cornerback Sam Shields, linebacker Nick Perry, defensive lineman Johnny Jolly and offensive lineman Don Barclay.
After coming up with two sacks in the Vikings game, linebacker Clay Matthews will be the player guest on Monday for Packers Live with Larry McCarren.
Packers Live is shown on a statewide network of seven stations, including NBC26 in Green Bay and TMJ4 in Milwaukee. Complete listings can be found on the Packers official website.
