GREEN BAY – T.J. Lang and Alex Green each were diagnosed with concussions in the wake of last Sunday’s victory in Chicago, but Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is “encouraged” that each player will be cleared in time for this Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans at Lambeau Field.
Lang and Green were two of 12 players the Packers listed on their injury report Wednesday.
Here’s a look at the full, official injury report for each team:
McCarthy said Green and Lang’s concussion symptoms “became evident at some point after the game or Monday.”
Meanwhile, McCarthy said Woodson “has not been cleared yet” by doctors to play, even though both the coach and the player suggested Woodson will play before the playoffs begin. McCarthy also said that Nelson, who has missed the last two games, “is getting better. His work yesterday was pretty extensive. We’ll see how he recovers here the next couple days.”
McCarthy also said he’s scaled back practice to “the minimum point of what we need to do to get ready for a game. … But we do have walk-throughs in the gym and we have a lot of time in the classroom getting the players ready. We’ll be ready to go Sunday.”
