The Green Bay Packers released the team’s first injury report of Week 2 on Wednesday. The team will release two more injury reports, including a final injury report on Friday with official injury designations before Sunday’s showdown with the Atlanta Falcons.
Here’s everything to know from Week 2’s first injury report:
— Running back Aaron Jones didn’t practice on Wednesday after injuring his hamstring at the end of a touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday’s win over the Bears. Coach Matt LaFleur said the team would give him the whole week to get his hamstring ready to play.
— Receiver Christian Watson did not practice again on Wednesday. He missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury. His practice participation on Thursday and Friday will tell us if he has a chance to play Sunday.
— Linebacker Quay Walker is in the concussion protocol and did not practice. He has to progress through several steps before he’s cleared to play.
— Receiver Romeo Doubs (hamstring) and linebacker Rashan Gary were limited. Both played against the Bears and were big-time contributors. Doubs caught two touchdown passes, while the Packers had Gary down for seven pressures. It’s unclear if either player will get more playing time in Week 2 after limited snap counts in the opener.
— Left tackle David Bakhtiari didn’t practice again. He hasn’t practiced since Aug. 30. It didn’t matter last Sunday. The All-Pro was dominant.
— Left guard Elgton Jenkins was limited with a new knee injury. Considering he practiced, it’s safe to assume the issue is minor and won’t affect his playing status for Sunday.
— Rookie safety Anthony Johnson Jr. was a full participant. He was inactive for Week 1.
— The Falcons had running back Cordarelle Patterson listed as a full participant, and cornerback Jeff Okudah returned as a limited participant. Both missed Week 1 but could play Sunday. Linebacker Troy Andersen is in concussion protocol.
