Lions - Packers: NFL Thursday Night Football injury report | Watson, Jones, Cabinda
The Thursday Night Football game will be a pivotal matchup between two NFC North teams with 2-1 records, potentially impacting the division winner.
On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers will be pitted against the Detroit Lions in a football matchup that has garnered much anticipation. Ahead of the game, both teams have released their latest injury reports, providing valuable insights into the condition of their players.
Detroit’s chances of winning have been dealt a blow due to injuries in their offensive line. Both backup tackle Matt Nelson and starting right guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai are out for the upcoming game, which could cause significant problems for the team.
Moreover, starting left tackle Taylor Decker and starting left guard Jonah Jackson are questionable to play, having been limited participants in practice all week. Meanwhile, running back David Montgomery may return after suffering a thigh injury during the game against Seattle, but he, too, was limited in practice all week.

Meanwhile, the Packers hope to have some key offensive players back in action for Week 4, but it remains uncertain. David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins are still out, which could affect the team’s overall performance. In addition, there are questions surrounding the availability of Jaire Alexander, Aaron Jones, and Robert Tonyan, with all three players listed as questionable.
Based on the last two practice sessions, all three players - Watson, Doubs, and Jones - were limited participants. Watson is scheduled to debut for 2023 on Thursday night, as confirmed by Doubs, who also stated that Jones is likely to play. However, we must wait until tomorrow to confirm Jones’ availability.
The Green Bay Packers lost All-Pro linebacker De’Vondre Campbell to an ankle injury during Sunday’s thrilling 18-17 win over the New Orleans Saints, and no update was provided after the game. Per the Packers’ latest injury report, Campbell was listed as a non-participant when the team released its first report on Monday. However, he wasn’t the only one, as eight Packers were considered non-participants.
