Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed participated at Packers practice on Thursday. On Wednesday, Reed was listed as limited because of an ankle injury. This is good news for Green Bay because they have a huge game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7).
The Packers are trying to stay in the seventh seed in the NFC after dropping last Monday night’s game against the New York Giants 24-22. Reed left that game in concussion protocol, but that is what he wasn’t on the injury list for on Wednesday.
Jayden Reed practicing on Thursday means that he should also practice on Friday. Jayden Reed has been one of the best players on the Packers’ offense this season. Quarterback Jordan Love is at his best this season when he finds him in the passing game.
The Green Bay Packers Wide Receiving Core Along With Jayden Reed Is on Track to Play on Sunday Except for Christian Watson
One of the biggest worries for the Packers on Tuesday morning was how was the receiving core going to be health-wise ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Two days later, it appears as if Green Bay will have most of its receiving core on Sunday.
Reed is probably the most important receiver on the roster. He is on track to be the second wide receiver this weekend behind Romeo Doubs because Christain Watson did not practice on Thursday because of his hamstring injury.
What is also good for Green Bay is that along with rookie Reed, rookie Dontayvion Wicks practiced and was dealing with an ankle injury. He injured it during the game against the New York Giants and did not return after that.
Having Doubs, Reed, and Wicks possibly this weekend for Love is a very good thing. It would have been disastrous for the Packers if Reed, Dontayvion Wicks, and Christian Watson were all not practicing on Thursday. It is better that Malik Heath and Sami Toure can be the fourth and fifth wide receivers on the depth chart this weekend rather than Jordan Love’s second and third receiving options also.
