The Green Bay Packers are in San Francisco today to face a 49ers defense that has surrendered 90 points in the last two games. The Packers should make that total grow at a rapid pace. Only Arizona in the N-F-C has scored more points than the Packers in the first three weeks of the season.
The Packers have promoted former Wisconsin standout wide receiver Jared Abbrederis from the practice squad, releasing DT Bruce Gaston. Abbrederis has struggled with injuries in his first two N-F-L seasons but expects to bolster a receiving corps which is expected to be without injured wide receiver Davante Adams. Adams is listed as doubtful for today’s game with a sprained ankle.
Safety Morgan Burnett is also listed as doubtful. Veteran defensive lineman Letroy Guion is ready to go after missing three games due to a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Kickoff this afternoon is set for 3:25 p-m Central time.
