Wednesday Injury Report: Oren Burks on the mend, Jimmy Graham has groin injury

Photo by Larry Radloff/Icon Sportswire via The Packers are inching closer to getting their preferred starter at linebacker back on the field. The Green Bay Packers did not hold a formal practice on Wednesday, choosing instead to conduct a walkthrough instead. Prior to that workout, head coach Matt LaFleur explained that part of the reason for that decision was a number of injuries affecting the team, and it was not until Wednesday afternoon’s injury report that the quantity of those injuries became clear. Although the Packers had to estimate injury status due to the nature of...

Inactives: David Bakhtiari will play, Vikings down four key players

Photo by Joe Robbins/ The Packers have a full starting lineup (sans Oren Burks), but the Vikings are missing two starters. The list of inactive players for the Green Bay Packers’ week two matchup with the Minnesota Vikings is here. and Packers fans got some great news. Left tackle David Bakhtiari is not on the list, meaning that he will be active and will start in today’s game. This is critical for Green Bay’s offense in this week two matchup. Bakhtiari will likely match up with Everson Griffen for much of the game, and the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end has had some great...

Friday Injury Report: Bakhtiari expects to play, Packers’ DBs at full strength

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Green Bay is expected to have most of their key players on the field. The Green Bay Packers welcome the Minnesota Vikings into Lambeau Field this Sunday for the first home game of the year. Last year in week two, abysmal kicking performances led to a tie in overtime.

Packers-Bears inactives, Week 1 2019: No big surprises for Green Bay

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via After missing practice all week, linebacker Oren Burks and wideout Darrius Shepherd will also miss Thursday night’s Packers-Bears matchup.

APC FanPulse shows dip in Packers fans’ confidence heading into regular season

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Perhaps the week one matchup is to blame, or maybe a few notable injuries in the preseason did it. Four preseason games have gone by since the last FanPulse survey, and with it some significant changes have taken place across the NFL. For the Green Bay Packers, a few notable injuries — primarily to Oren Burks and Equanimeous St. Brown — have the team a little thinner in some depth spots than they appeared to be heading into training camp. But all told, there is little difference on the roster, at least near the top of the depth chart, from what was projected for...

Packers-Bears Injury Report: Green Bay rules Oren Burks & Darrius Shepherd out

Photo by Will Newton/ Most of Green Bay’s key contributors are expected to play, however. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will square off on Thursday evening in the first game of the NFL’s 2019 regular season, the 100th in the league’s history. The league should be pretty pleased about the roster situations for both teams coming into the game, as both rosters are relatively healthy at this point. Yes, there are a few players on injured reserve for both squads, but none were expected to be major contributors. Perhaps the biggest name on either IR list is Packers receiver...

Five possible roster cut candidates who could help the Packers’ depth at ILB

Five possible roster cut candidates who could help the Packers’ depth at ILB

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports If the Packers look to the waiver wire this weekend for help on the inside of their defense, these players could be under consideration.

The team has seen projected starter Oren Burks go down at the WILL position with a shoulder injury, followed closely by a knee injury to his replacement, undrafted rookie Curtis Bolton. While both players seemed to escape serious injuries, they both could...

Following injuries to Oren Burks and Curtis Bolton, the Green Bay Packers should sign an inside linebacker.
