After punching their ticket to the NFL playoffs, as a result of getting the best of the division-rival Chicago Bears in their regular-season finale, the Green Bay Packers have secured the seventh seed in the NFC and will face the Dallas Cowboys in the first round of the postseason on Sunday.
Along with the tall task of taking on one of the best all-around teams in the league in the first round of the playoffs, the Packers have quite a few of their key players on both sides of the football banged up.
As if being heavy underdogs heading into Wild Card Weekend on the road wasn’t bad enough, the injury report isn’t looking great for Green Bay, as this team could be limping into this showdown with the Cowboys.
However, these banged-up players are gutting it out this week ahead of the first round of the postseason, with only running back AJ Dillon not participating in practice on Wednesday, according to head coach Matt LaFleur via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
#Packers coach Matt LaFleur said that RB AJ Dillon was the only player who did not participate in practice Wednesday. Nine others were limited.

Along with Dillon (neck/thumb), Aaron Jones (knee/finger), Christian Watson (hamstring), Romeo Doubs (chest), and Jaire Alexander (not disclosed) are listed as questionable for this week’s matchup with the Cowboys.
Even though a lot of these important players for the Packers are questionable right now, there isn’t a team in the NFL that has made it this far that isn’t banged up at this point because this is a marathon and not sprint, with the healthiest team more often than not being able to go the distance.
