Found October 19, 2013 on Packer Fans United:
This week has been a pretty uneventful one for the Green Bay Packers. No...wait...other way around, sorry: it's been a very eventful week for the Pack. It could cause more than a few Packer fans to get...nervous.After all, the Packers lost two of their starting receivers in the win against the Ravens, James Jones and Randall Cobb, for varying amounts of time. It was hoped that Jones might be able to play this weekend but he did not practice during the week and is listed as questionable for the game. Randall Cobb, well, he's out longer. A lot longer. He was placed on the injured reserve list with a "designated to return" classification. He won't be back till mid-December at the earliest. (Be positive: it will be for the stretch run!)So the receiving corps -- one of the best in the league at the start of the season -- was down to basically Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin. As a result, the Packers promoted practice squad WR Myles White to the active roster earlier...

Packers WR James Jones, OLB Mike Neal questionable vs. Browns

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The injury report for the Green Bay Packers has become so lengthy that having 46 healthy players for Sunday's gameday roster could be a struggle.

The Packers already knew they'd be without starting outside linebackers Clay Matthews (thumb) and Nick Perry (foot), as well as leading receiver Randall...

Casey Hayward, James Jones questionable for Sunday

The Green Bay Packers have listed cornerback Casey Hayward and wide receiver James Jones as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with the Browns.

Below is the rest of the Packers injury report from NAME POSITION INJURY...

James Jones carries questionable tag after missing practice all week; look for Jarrett Boykin to see an uptick in targets (Week 7 Injury Report)

Week 7 Injury Report James Jones – Questionable: For a team that loves a three-wideout package, the Packers suddenly likely find themselves down two.

Packers Could Be Down Six Starters for Browns

The Packers will hope that the 50-plus hours until kickoff will get Mike Neal and James Jones ready to face Cleveland on Sunday. For Neal, it's the same shoulder that cost him 2010, though he said he's a game-time decision. Plus injury reports and more from Friday at Lambeau Field.


It’s a hell of a question.  Not usually one that gets asked to an NFL head coach.  Are you going to be able to field 46 healthy players on Sunday?  If everyone of the players that have missed or been limited in practice this week on the 53 (Matthews, J Jones, B Jones, Hayward, Taylor, Neal, Perry, and Starks) all miss Sunday’s game it would mean that the Packers would have...
