The Green Bay Packers head to Dallas as 7-point underdogs in the Wild Card Round against the Cowboys. Both teams appear to be relatively healthy for this matchup, but there are of course a few players nursing injuries at this time of the year. We’ll take a closer look at the Packers final injury report below.

Packers final injury report

Out: N/A
Doubtful: RB A.J. Dillon (thumb/neck)
Questionable: CB Jaire Alexander (shoulder/ankle), WR Christian Watson (hamstring)

Notable players on in-week report removed from final: WR Romeo Doubs (chest), WR Jayden Reed (chest), RB Aaron Jones (knee/finger)

How the team’s injuries may affect the Packers in Wild Card round

The Packers wide receivers have had trouble staying healthy this season, but there’s a chance they are all able to play this week. Both Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed were removed from the injury report, while Christian Watson is questionable. Watson looked very close to returning last week, so this could be the week.

The most worrisome injury is to cornerback Jaire Alexander, who rolled his ankle in practice this week. He wasn’t able to practice on Thursday or Friday, but is listed as questionable. He will need to be at full strength to help slow down Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb.
