Why is the Packers’ injury report down for a week?
Posted On August 9, 2021
The Packers have suffered two of the biggest blows of the season.
They have to deal with the loss of safety Harrison Smith to a season-ending knee injury, and defensive tackle Jared Allen to a fractured foot.
The Packers are now without three of their top four linebackers in Clay Matthews, Bryan Bulaga and Morgan Burnett.
The injury report will be released Thursday morning, but it’s expected to contain plenty of news about the Packers losing Aaron Rodgers, who is on the mend after a season ending injury to his right knee.
The team released a statement after Monday’s loss to the Rams: “The Packers are aware of the injury report release from Sunday night and are working with the league to get an update.
As a result of the release, the Packers are limited in their ability to release the injury reports until Thursday morning.
We will be releasing additional injury reports throughout the week. “
The team is focused on returning to play this week, as we are confident we can continue to play with a positive outlook.
We will be releasing additional injury reports throughout the week.
The most important thing to remember, however, is that the health of our players is our top priority and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that everyone feels safe.”
Rodgers was injured on the play when he collided with Rams wide receiver Pharoh Cooper in the second quarter of Sunday’s game.
It’s unclear if the two players sustained any significant injuries.
