This is definitely not good news for the Green Bay Packers.
Heading into Week 3 of the season, the Pack is sitting a measly 3rd in the NFC North division with a 1-1 record. While they should be looking at this week’s matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 0-2 on the season, as a breeze, Green Bay could face some trouble on Sunday.
Why? Oh, because half of their team is listed as doubtful to even play:
The #Packers list 7 players as doubtful and unless they get upgraded, that’s their list: Cobb, Bakhtiari, Daniels, House, Perry, Ryan, Brice

What makes this even worse for the Packers is that most of their injuries come from their starting players, which means they’re going to have to rely on reserves to get them over the .500 hump this weekend.
One almost has to wonder if there’s a consequence for this:
Can a team get fined for putting everyone on the injury list?

On the bright side (well, as bright as one can get in this situation), wide receiver Jordy Nelson is listed as questionable for this week, which means there’s a shot at least one Packer will step onto the field!
Get well soon, guys.
