The Green Bay Packers will travel to Michigan on Thursday to play the Detroit Lions in their annual Thanksgiving game. The Packers are looking to improve on their undefeated record, but a couple of their key players are hobbled by injury according to Tuesday's practice report.
The Packers didn't practice on Monday, but Tuesday's report indicated that left tackle Chad Clifton was the only one that has been unable to participate in the Packers' preparation for the Lions. Wide receiver Greg Jennings and running back James Starks were limited on Tuesday, however, which could hurt the potency of Aaron Rodgers' offense.
Jennings was limited with a knee injury while Starks is listed as having both knee and ankle injuries, but both are expected to be available for the NFC North showdown on Thanksgiving. Left tackle Marshall Newhouse, Clifton's replacement in the starting lineup, was the only other offensive player listed as he only participated in part of practice due to a knee injury.
On the defensive side of the ball, linebackers Clay Matthews, Desmond Bishop and Frank Zombo are all on the injury report. Bishop was added with a calf injury after not being projected on Monday's injury report, Matthews was removed from the injury report and Zombo is still nursing a hamstring injury.
