Both the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions are missing some key players ahead of their Week 2 matchup at Lambeau Field.
The Green Bay Packers released their injury report on Friday, ahead of their matchup against the Detroit Lions in Week 2 and it’s safe to say they’ll have their work cut out for them on Sunday.
The big news is Kenny Clark has been ruled out for the contest. He went down in the first half against the Minnesota Vikings with a groin injury and didn’t return. He missed practice all week and his Week 3 availability could be in jeopardy as well.
Also listed on the injury report along the defensive line is Montravius Adams. Adams missed last week’s game with a toe injury and was limited all week in practice, making him questionable for Sunday. That will make it interesting with just Kingsley Keke, Tyler Lancaster, Dean Lowry and whoever the Packers bring up from the practice squad.
Of course, we know Lane Taylor is out, as he suffered a season-ending injury against the Vikings. Also listed as out is linebacker Randy Ramsey (groin) and Equanimous St. Brown (knee).
Four other Packers are questionable, each with a big role on this team. Rookie Josiah Deguara was used all over the place in his NFL debut and appears to be a big part of LaFleur’s gameplan moving forward. However, he was a limited participant in practice due to his toe and is questionable. Raven Greene, the Packers’ third safety who didn’t play last week, is also questionable.
Along the offensive line, both Billy Turner and Lucas Patrick fall in this category as well. The Packers were forced to do a bunch of shuffling last week and they’re hoping to be a bit healthier against the Lions. Having at least one of those players available would be a huge boost up front.
As for the Lions, wide receiver Kenny Golladay and cornerback Desmond Trufant were the biggest Detroit players who were ruled out. Davante Adams could be in for another big day against a limited secondary. Also ruled out was guard Joe Dahl and tight end Hunter Bryant while safety C.J. Moore, cornerback Darryl Roberts, tackle Halapoulivaati Vaita and defensive tackle Nick Williams are all questionable.
