Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy revealed two injuries following
Thursday nights 27-13 win over Cincinnati. TE Tom Crabtree suffered a shoulder injury and DE Ryan Pickett a calf injury. Neither player returned to action in the game.
As it turns out, Crabtree escaped from any serious injury. McCarthy said he’ll have a chance to make it back for the final preseason game against Kansas City this Thursday night at Lambeau Field.
McCarthy didn’t offer much information on Ryan Pickett, other than to say he’ll be hard-pressed to make it back for the Chiefs game.
McCarthy also added linebacker Robert Francois to the injury report with a hamstring injury.
During the coaches Friday press conference, McCarthy also indicated that the situation with corner Davon House, who was in line to win the No. 2 corner job before he dislocated his shoulder in the preseason opener against San Diego, isn’t as clear.
McCarthy said House was progressing but surgery hasn’t been ruled out.
McCarthy said he’s not sure if there’ll be any clarity this week on just where House stands, but he’s definitely making good progress.
McCarthy was also asked about the status of injured inside linebacker Desmond Bishop. McCarthy said a decision is expected in the next 48 hours and has been a part of the personnel staff’s discussion.
The Packers have to cut their roster from 90 to 75 players by Monday afternoon at 3pm, but the Packers will likely make those decisions sooner than later.
