The only major injury question the Packers had heading into the opener was right tackle Bryan Bulaga who sustained a right ankle injury in practice on Aug. 23. But Bulaga was able to practice Wednesday, in a limited fashion, and all signs suggest he will be good to go against the Seahawks. The Packers had 52 of their 53 players on the practice field. The only one who wasn’t was defensive tackle Quinton Dial, who signed with the Packers on Tuesday and is expected at practice Thursday.
Wide receivers Corey Davis (hamstring) and Eric Decker (ankle) are expected to play against the Raiders after missing most of the preseason. Coach Mike Mularkey said Davis, who said his hamstring is about 90 percent, will be used in “specific situations” rather than receive full reps in his first NFL game. Starting cornerback LeShaun Sims suffered a groin injury that forced him to miss practice Wednesday and leaves his status for Sunday’s game uncertain. Left tackle Taylor Lewan sprained his ankle Wednesday, but he’s expected to go.
That’s ridiculous. And I like this the best [because] you are trying to put the QB down.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas returned to the practice field Wednesday after being held out for several days because of a groin injury he suffered in the Aug. 26 preseason game. Thomas will play in the regular-season opener against the Chargers, and coach Vance Joseph said Thomas “looked great.” Joseph said outside linebacker Cheap Basketball Jerseys Shaquil Barrett, who missed much of the offseason program because of a hip injury, should be ready to play in the opener as well. Barrett’s availability will help the Broncos deal Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys with Shane Ray’s absence. Ray will open the season on injured reserve (wrist) and is not expected to play until Oct. 30 when the Broncos face the Chiefs.
