GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur found reason to be thankful when checking the roster for Thursday’s practice.
Starting offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins returned to practice after sitting out Wednesday. That’s what Rudy Ford did at safety after he was sidelined with an illness. However, Robert Tonian began a difficult period on Thursday after becoming the sixth player on the injury report due to illness.
“It’s very similar to what we had in 2019, where everybody seems to be hurting,” LaFleur said before practice. “But I think our medical staff is doing a good job on these guys, and guys, we’ve tested them for everybody, and if they have the flu, we’re going to let them out.”
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers went from being limited with a broken thumb to full participation.
Linebacker De’Vondre Campbell and receiver Romeo Dubs did not practice and appeared unlikely to play Sunday.
“He’s making progress,” LaFleur said of Campbell, who stepped onto the practice field Wednesday.
The Eagles’ injury list went from one player on Wednesday to 11 on Thursday, but most of those additions were to rest veterans. Notably, starting receiver AJ Brown was out with an illness and running back DeVonta Smith was limited with a knee injury.
