Green Bay Packers: Team looks at lineup changes due to injures

Jordy Nelson quad injury reportedly not serious, could miss one game

Edge rusher Nick Perry has a hand injury.

By now, you have no doubt heard that the Cincinnati Bengals are the first team since 1939 to start the season with two home games, yet score zero touchdowns. Cincinnati fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese following another brutal loss to the Texans and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor. They haven't reached the end zone in 25 possessions, settling for three field goals for the season. "Our focus is on the uncommon opponent in the Bengals, but we have a lot of work to do ourselves". More than a dozen players will be on Wednesday's injury report. But the hot isn't the only thing Green Bay will have to overcome.

Despite taking a step back in terms of playing time, Duke Riley was still very much involved against the Packers. The team has to play two games in a 12 day span, starting on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, then the following Thursday against the Chicago Bears. He has turned into a disruptive force up front in his sixth year, helping outside linebackers Perry and Clay Matthews get off to a good start off the edge.

Ben ready to take on Cleveland to open regular season
Garrett has had foot issues dating back to his stint at Texas A&M , suffering a high ankle sprain during his final college season. He gashed them for 152 yards the last time these teams faced on New Year's Day and he averaged 4.8 yards per carry last season.

And in what would seem to be a sign that Daniels might be out awhile, a league source confirmed that the team had agreed to terms with veteran defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois, whom the Packers just cut last week to make room on the 53-man roster for practice-squad offensive lineman Adam Pankey, who was added amid the team's disastrous tackle situation. Dalton has a passer rating of 47.4 with four interceptions and no TD passes yet.

Head Coach Marvin Lewis and quarterback Andy Dalton are feeling the heat over the terrible start. "There's always room for improvement, so I'm continually trying to get better, but I think I'm pretty comfortable in my role". So if that's his goal, that's my goal, too. Bakhtiari was inactive on Sunday night and he said earlier this week that he is not sure he is ready to come back yet. After an injury-filled 2016 season, the nine-year veteran is off to a good start this season with 1½ sacks.

"Trust me", McCarthy said before practice. "Trust me, if there was just one thing that was causing these injuries, we would have stopped it a long time ago".
