The Green Bay Packers will play the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving, forcing the week's mandatory injury reports to begin on Monday instead of Wednesday. The undefeated Packers don't practice on Mondays, however -- but Greg Jennings and James Starks wouldn't have practiced regardless.
The Packers listed both Jennings and Starks, two key cogs in Aaron Rodger's offense, as DNP on Monday. That might be a bit misleading, however, as there was a note that "the Packers did not practice on Monday; practice designations are estimations."
The Packers also would have been missing left tackle Marshall Newhouse, something that typically wouldn't be a huge problem. Newhouse has started recently for the Packers with Chad Clifton out of the lineup, however, and Clifton has already been ruled out again this week due to his nagging hamstring injury.
Linebackers Clay Matthews and Frank Zombo, along with offensive guard Josh Sitton, also would have been limited in Monday's practice. Matthews didn't practice right away last week, though, before eventually starting in the Packers victory on Sunday.
