While the Green Bay Packers announced that tight end Tom
Crabtree injured his hamstring last weekend against the Chicago Bears, the team
added a pair of starters to Wednesday’s injury report; offensive lineman T.J.
Lang and running back Alex Green, reports James Carlton of CBS Sports.
“T.J. Lang, I'm encouraged that he'll be ready for Sunday
just based on the information from (team doctors),” McCarthy said. “It became
evident at some point after the game or on Monday that he had (concussion)
symptoms. So we're playing the high side (of caution). Same thing with Green.”
Both Lang and Green are dealing with concussions. However,
the Packers seem confident that both players will be able to suit up this
weekend against the Tennessee Titans.
Green currently leads the team in carries, and if he can’t
suit up this weekend the Packers would be left depending on Ryan Grant and
DuJuan Harris. Lang has been hampered throughout the season by injuries, but he
was able to start against the Bears.
