The Green Bay Packers have had a run of terrible luck this season. While many of their losses can be chalked up to poor play and even poorer play-calling, their run of injuries certainly has not helped. Rashan Gary is out for the season with a torn ACL. David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins missed the beginning of the season recovering from their own ACL injuries. Christian Watson, Krys Barnes, Sammy Watkins, De’Vondre Campbell, Randall Cobb, and Romeo Doubs have all missed games with injuries. Even Aaron Rodgers has been playing over half the season with a broken thumb. On Thanksgiving, the Packers had practice and got some great news. Krys Barnes was a full participant and Romeo Doubs returned to practice for the first time since his injury.
Romeo Doubs was back at Packers practice today. He was working in rehab, but first time we’ve seen back on the field since his high ankle sprain.
New linebacker Justin Hollins was also practicing.
Cobb and Carpenter (illness) practiced.

Do Not Expect Romeo Doubs to Play vs Eagles
While it is great to see Romeo Doubs back on the practice field, realistically he will not be playing on Sunday night in Philadelphia. As noted in the Tweet above, Doubs was practicing with the rehab group. It may be another week or two before he is able to play in a game.
Until then, the Packers will continue to rely on Christian Watson, Randall Cobb, and Allen Lazard as their primary receivers. As noted here, Sammy Watkins is no longer listed as a starter on the Packers’ depth chart. In fact, the only wide receiver whom Watkins is listed above is Samori Toure.
