It can linger alongside a player for weeks or can permanently destroy their career There is no escaping the Injury Bug. (Evil maniacal laugh follows.)The month of October has seen the Packers get hit hard with injuries. The following slide show depicts players who will miss at least next week and the players who will need to step up to fill the void.. Tramon Williams will have to cover punt and kick returns this week since Jordy Nelson is also hurt.. Hall strained his calf during the bye week and was replaced by Quinn Johnson last week versus Cleveland.
It is unsure whether he will play this week and may have fallen behind Quinn Johnson on the depth chart. Clifton injured his ankle at Minnesota and aggravated the sprain a few weeks ago in Detroit He is unlikely to play this week where T.J Lang will get his second start at left tackle. Lang could solidify himself as the starter if he continues to play well.. Nelson will miss a couple weeks due to a sprained knee. James Jones will fill in as the third wide receiver and Tramon Williams will handle kick return duties.. Deshawn Wynn injured his knee and was placed on injured reserve.
