The Green Bay Packers Had Many Injuries Pop Up on Thursday
One of the big storylines heading into the Packers’ Week Three matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is the fact that the Bucs will be without their top three wide receivers. As it turns out, the Packers, too, are dealing with some injuries in their receiving core.
According to their injury report on Thursday, Randall Cobb, Christian Watson, Allen Lazard, and Sammy Watkins are all dealing with some sort of ailment. Cobb’s is an illness that also kept him out of practice on Thursday. Watkins and Watson are both nursing hamstring injuries. They were limited participants in Wednesday’s practice, but did not practice on Thursday. Allen Lazard is still nursing a sore ankle, the same one that kept him out of the Packers’ Week One loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Like Watson and Watkins, he was limited in practice on Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday.
Travis Fulgham Was Once a Leading Wide Receiver on the Eagles
It was not too long ago that Travis Fulgham was one of the biggest wide receiving threats on the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2020, Fulgham had 38 receptions for 539 yards and four touchdowns. He played in 13 games that season, but has only appeared in four games total in his other three NFL seasons (including this one). In 2019, Fulgham played three games for the Detroit Lions, but did not record a catch on three targets. Last season, he appeared in one game for the Denver Broncos, but did not even get a target.
