The Green Bay Packers lost three starters during their Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts; running back Cedric Benson, tight end
Jermichael Finley and defensive tackle B.J. Raji. One of the three will be sidelined
Week 6, while the status of the other two remains up in the air.







The Packers have announced that Benson will miss this
weekend’s contest against the Houston Texans, reports Marc Sessler of NFL.com.
Benson had his foot in a boot on Monday after sustaining an ankle injury
Sunday.




Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Finley will suit up and “has
a chance” to play against the Texans. The tight end suffered a shoulder injury
this weekend.




Despite having to be carted off the field with an ankle
injury, McCarthy said Raji also might be able to play Sunday.
