Everything to know from Packers’ first injury report of Week 6

By Zach Kruse

Several key players for the Green Bay Packers will be on injured reserve or the PUP list for Sunday’s Week 6 showdown with the Chicago Bears, but the rest of Matt LaFleur’s team is starting to get healthy.

The Packers were without just two players during Wednesday’s practice: cornerback Kevin King and offensive tackle Dennis Kelly. King is nursing a new shoulder injury, while Kelly now has a back injury after missing last week with an illness.

LaFleur said the team will give King the rest of the week to get ready to play against the Bears.

Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins, who has missed the last three games, practiced in a limited capacity, while center Josh Myers was a full participant after missing last week’s win with a finger injury. Both could return on Sunday against the Bears, providing the Packers offensive with a boost against a talented front.

Receivers Davante Adams and Randall Cobb got a veteran’s rest day on Wednesday.

The Packers no longer have linebacker Krys Barnes, running back A.J. Dillon, defensive lineman Dean Lowry or cornerback Isaac Yiadom on the injury report. All four played last week against the Bengals.

The only new addition to the injury report from last week is tight end Robert Tonyan, who was limited on Wednesday with a new knee injury.
