Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's a good thing the Packers have only one more game before their bye week because their already-long injury list continues to grow.Six starters have been ruled out for Green Bay's Sunday matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, including fullback John Kuhn (hamstring), outside linebacker Nick Perry (kneewrist), cornerback Sam Shields (ankle) and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy (concussion). Wide receiver Greg Jennings (abdominal surgery) and safety Charles Woodson (broken collarbone) are out for a longer stretch.Wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who missed last week's game with a hamstring injury, is listed as questionable for Sunday. Rookie safety Jerron McMillian injured his back in practice and is also questionable.Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf), nose tackle B.J. Raji (ankle), defensive end Mike Neal (ankle), left guard T.J. Lang (elbowwrist), tight end Jermichael Finley (shoulder) and wide receiver Donald Driver (neckthumb) are all probable.Curiously, the Packers have played their best football of the season since the injuries began to pile up during a Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The Packers were 2-3 after blowing a 17-point halftime lead in that game and have won three straight since. Green Bay did, however, struggle a bit last week against Jacksonville with many of these same players out.Follow Paul Imig on Twitter

The Packers WR has been dealing with a hamstring injury that may cause him to miss a second straight game. It will all come down to how he feels come Sunday morning, but with their bye week coming up next week, I feel like they won’t risk further injury after what happened to Jennings.
They can probably beat the reeling Cardinals without him and...
