The Packers will have to make some adjustments in their receiving corps for Sunday.

Receiver Sammy Watkins has been ruled out for the Week Three matchup with the Buccaneers. He was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice but sat out Thursday and Friday with a hamstring issue.

Randall Cobb (illness) and rookie Christian Watson (hamstring) are questionable. Cobb did not practice all week while Watson was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (groin) are also questionable. The tackle was limited on Thursday and Friday while lewis was limited on Wednesday and Friday.

While receiver Allen Lazard did not practice on Thursday, he was limited on Friday and now has no game status. Defensive lineman Kenny Clark (groin), kicker Mason Crosby (illness), and offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (knee) are also expected to play.

  1. Sammy is now approaching Julio status. Lucky the Packers aren’t leaning hard on him in my mind. Look for Doubs. He’s healthy. Watson, not so much.

  2. Is the GB GM “all in”…..If he trades a high draft pick for a high-quality veteran WR who becomes available by Week 6 (7 or 8), then “yes.”

    By week 6-8, teams may begin their Fire Sales….and the GB GM may FINALLY
    realize his own veteran WRs are subject to injuries…..Watkins being “out” by Week #3 is not a surprise.

  3. Whoever had the “under” on Watson being healthy at 3 games is happily cashing in right now.
