Packers Battle Injuries As First Game Looms


GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) At least eight players will sit out Thursday night’s exhibition opener for the Green Bay Packers.

Receiver Greg Jennings is still feeling the effects of a concussion suffered at last Friday’s Family Night scrimmage. Tight end Ryan Taylor also has a concussion. Running back Du’ane Bennett and tight end Eric Lair will miss the contest at San Diego with knee injuries. Also out are receiver Tori Gurley with a groin pull, fullback Jon Hoese with a bad hamstring, guard Ray Dominguez with an ankle injury, and offensive tackle Mike McCabe with an injured hip.

Coach Mike McCarthy ran a shorter practice last night due to all the injured players – and two more got hurt. Corner Sam Shields left practice early after injuring an elbow. And running back Brandon Saine left after pulling a hamstring.
