Packers Injury Report: Over 30 Percent of Team Included on Latest Thanksgiving Day Report

In a twist of fate for the Green Bay Packers, their Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Detroit Lions is clouded by a slew of injuries affecting key players. Aaron Jones, one of the team's star running backs, is dealing with a sprained MCL sustained during the previous game against the Chargers. While the news isn't as grim as initially feared, it's still unlikely that Jones will take the field on Thursday. However, Coach LaFleur remains optimistic that it won't be a long-term setback.

On the other hand, tight end Luke Musgrave‘s situation is more dire. He suffered a lacerated kidney during the same game, a serious injury that occurred when he was tackled and landed on the football. Musgrave, despite the injury, remained in the game, showcasing his resilience. Although he's now out of the hospital, there is no definite timetable for his return to action, leaving a significant gap in the Packers' offense.

The injury list doesn't stop there. A total of 17 players are listed on the Packers' Tuesday injury report, making up nearly one-third of the team's roster. The list includes notable names like LB De’Vondre Campbell, TE Josiah Deguara, and WR Dontayvion Wicks, among others.
