Lazard Doubtful, Tonyan good to go, OTs - who knows?

The Packers will list both David Bahktiari and Elgton Jenkins as Questionable. 

Earlier this afternoon, Matt LaFleur confirmed that wide receiver Allen Lazard will be listed as Doubtful on the injury report heading into Sunday's season opener against the Minnesota Vikings. 

That designation would indicate it's a real long shot that Lazard will play in the game. Aaron Rodgers will need to find other guys to throw the ball to. Thankfully, one of the many walking wounded in Green Bay seems to be heading in the right direction health wise and should be able to help in that regard. 

Tight end Robert Tonyan, who tore his ACL in last season's Week 8 game against the Cardinals and began training camp on the physically unable to perform list, will not have any injury designation and is indeed expected to play in Sunday's game. 

Two other players who started camp on the PUP and then came off in recent weeks, offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins, will be listed as Questionable heading into Sunday's contest. The guess here would be that Jenkins plays and Bakhtiari, who did not practice on Friday, sits for at least one week before taking his regular spot at left tackle.

I don’t like this injury report. Yet I am happy for the starters who will be available. I would prefer that all the starters are able to suit up. It’s a long season so, I guess, when they are ready they are ready. No sense having problems pop up again later because they weren’t fully healed.

Its hard for me to believe D Bac needs another week. or two weeks to be ready to go. He has missed so much time what does a week or two or three going to do. What a shit show.

He literally had another procedure on his knee in the spring. It's not that surprising.

Adapt and overcome. It’s the reason for the sport.
