By Nick Freimuth The leader of ‘The Pack’ remains the injury story of the NFL heading into week 3. The MVP caliber quarterback told media yesterday that he is concerned his knee injury will get worse throughout the season. Some think that is foreshadowing that he will rest for a few weeks to try and get the knee right. Others believe he will just have to play through a lot of pain all season. Regardless of the outcome Packers fans know one thing, without #12, the season is in major jeopardy.
Here is a look at each team’s injury release following practice Wednesday. By the numbers, Green Bay is far healthier than Washington. Quality vs. quantity is where the Packers are in trouble.
