Injury Woes for Packers

The Green Bay Packers are heading into their clash with the Detroit Lions without three crucial starters. Following a short turnaround from their Week 3 victory over the New Orleans Saints, the Packers had several key players dealing with injuries. While there is hope that Christian Watson and Aaron Jones might be available, the team is preparing to play without a couple of key offensive linemen.

As reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Packers have already ruled out David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins, and De’Vondre Campbell. This marks the second consecutive week that Bakhtiari and Jenkins will be sidelined together. Bakhtiari has been out of action since sustaining an injury against the Chicago Bears in Week 1. These absences are significant blows to the Packers’ lineup.
