”Nobody is going to come rescue us,” Fox said. ”I think we’re playing a game Thursday night, so we’ll do our best to get ready for it.”
The latest installment of the NFL’s oldest rivalry is a meeting between teams trying to make it to the long weekend off that follows a Thursday game without anyone else getting hurt.
By numbers alone, the Packers have had it worse, especially on the O-line. Tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) are on the injury report again Cheap James Washington Jersey , listed as doubtful for Thursday. Kyle Murphy went on injured reserve this week, joining two other backup tackles knocked out by injuries.
Ten players are on the injury report, not including two this week placed on injured reserve. The Packers do expect receiver Randall Cobb to return Thursday from a chest injury.
”The No. 1 goal for our football team as far as preparing for this game is for everybody to get their bodies back,” McCarthy said.
The Packers have a great equalizer in quarterback Aaron Rodgers. They’re never out of a game at home as long as he’s healthy, such as when Green Bay came back from a 14-point halftime deficit last week to beat the Bengals 27-24 in overtime.
”Part of the puzzle is keeping our QB upright and that’s the most important thing,” Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said.
