Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may have another one of his receivers available on Sunday against the Raiders.

Green Bay has upgraded Geronimo Allison from doubtful to questionable, with a concussion and a chest injury.

Allison took a big hit in Monday night’s win over the Lions while in the process of trying to catch a pass. The flag thrown for the hit on a defenseless receiver was controversial, but as referee Clete Blakeman explained after the game, it’s a strict liability situation.

Receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling also has been listed as questionable, with ankle and knee injuries. Top wideout Davante Adams will miss his third straight game with a toe injury.

  1. It’s beginning to look more and more like we’ll be able to count on G-Mo and MVS to be available for action on Sunday.
    Very welcome news for what’s shaping up to be a very tough matchup at Lambeau.

    With a two game lead in the NFC North, a win tomorrow would go a long way to separating the Green and Gold from the rest of the pack.

  2. The Packers are INDEED lucky to be 5-1 I think any Packer fan would take that, At this point they played 3 games against the best division in the NFL, a tough game at Dallas, the only team the Packers have played that are under .500 right now are the Broncos.

    I feel people weren’t sure what to expect with a new head coach, how would the offense go, it clearly started slow but seem to be getting better, and the defense is certainly a pleasant surprise, I figured they would improve but I don’t expect this.

    I don’t think they should trade for a WR, trades rarely pan out unless done on draft day, the best most fair trade i can think of was Bailey for Portis where both teams feel they came out decent, I dont want to give up a 2nd rounder for someone like AJ Green whom seems to get hurt a lot, and I feel they won’t get a huge improvement for a lower round that I wouldn’t mind as much.

    Packers are 5 – 1, Vikings are 4 – 2.

    That’s a one game lead, tiebreakers don’t count until both head to head games are played.

    I know you don’t want to hear that, but you know that’s the truth.

    __________

    Packers vs. Vikings
    Packers 1-0.
    Vikings. 0-1

    NFC North Records
    Packers 3-0
    Vikings 0-2

    As it stand today, it’s a solid two game lead.
    Tiebreakers are quickly becoming a foregone conclusion.
    But, go ahead, delusion away.

  5. I think its fair to say the Packers offense are still getting their sea legs underneath them, a new coach, a new offensive scheme and no time together in the pre season to sort this stuff out. They are slowly figuring it out, getting better with each passing week and that alone should scare the rest of the NFC North.

    The Lions are tougher than most fans give them credit for, the Bear are regressing back to the mean after a freakish 2018 and the only two words that come to mind when thinking of the Vikings are “Kirk Cousins’. And that should scare any right-thinking (if there is any) Viking fan.

  6. Allison upgraded? To what? A guy who can catch 2 of 5 passes thrown his way instead of 1 of 5? Dude showed promise early in his career, but he hit a point where he hasn’t improved at all. Maybe he finally learned the playbook?

  7. When the Packers recently danced on the Vikings:

    “The Vikings were without nickel corner Mackensie Alexander and Mike Hughes, forcing Jayron Kearse to start at slot/nickel. Kearse gave too much cushion on a 21-yard completion to Adams on the second possession, which caused Mike Zimmer to insert Nate Meadors at nickel. Rodgers promptly went at him on a 12-yard TD catch by Geronimo Allison.”

    That’s called a game-winner.

    Tie? Who cares about ties. I fully expect the Packers record to catch up to their bottom ranked O and D soon enough before the long season ends.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Last season you were the one complaining the longest and the loudest that rankings and statistics had little or no value. Now that the Vikings are appropriately In the Packers’ rearview mirror, you pull those cards and play them.

    Can you spell hypocrite?

  10. I see the Green Bay Petunias are refusing to accept the truth.

    I expected as much.

    They can go find a safe place now…

  11. It sure is starting to look like another deep playoff tear for the most successful franchise in NFL history.

    The Green Bay Packers.

    Better football.

    For better people.

  12. Are Packer fans seriously talking about tie breakers, with a 1 game lead and 10 games to go? There can only be one explanation for that. Fear. At this point, it looks like both teams are playoff material. But let’s go ahead and play those last 10 and find out.
