Numerous Players Still Banged Up Entering Sunday

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

Health watch

Mike McCarthy isn’t sure how many safeties he’ll have at his disposal Sunday, but he’s hoping out of Aaron Rouse (ankle, questionable), Charlie Peprah (calf, probable) and Atari Bigby (ankle, probable), two of the three will be able to join Nick Collins (knee, probable) in the starting lineup.

“We have all three of those guys pretty much in the same boat,” McCarthy said. “I’ll go through (with) the medical staff and see what they think. Special teams will factor into that, too.”

Including Bigby and Peprah, 13 of the 19 players listed on the injury report for Sunday are probable, including six starters: left tackle Chad Clifton (knees), wide receiver Greg Jennings (ribs), defensive end Mike Montgomery (ankle), center Scott Wells (shoulder), defensive tackle Johnny Jolly (ankle) and cornerback Charles Woodson (toe). Also probable are tight end Tory Humphrey (ankle), No. 2 halfback Brandon Jackson (ankle), safety/cornerback Jarrett Bush (ankle), receiver James Jones (knee) and defensive end Jeremy Thompson (groin).

Starting right tackle Mark Tauscher (hamstring) is questionable, while No. 5 cornerback Pat Lee (knee) has been ruled out. No. 3 halfback DeShawn Wynn (calf) is doubtful.
