The Green Bay Packers will take on the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card round of the 2024 NFL playoffs. Green Bay snuck in as the No. 7 seed and have the toughest matchup for the NFC as they hit the road to take on No. 2 Dallas. The Packers are dealing with injuries, and running back AJ Dillon continues to deal with a neck stinger suffered in Week 17.

Dillon is the backup to starting running back Aaron Jones. Dillon has played in 15 games and has picked up 613 yards and two touchdowns on 178 carries. He has added 233 additional yards on 22 receptions from 28 targets from quarterback Jordan Love. The good news for Green Bay is that Jones is healthy, but Dillon would still be a piece of the offense tough to replicate if he were to miss the game.
