The Packers’ season is going from bad to worse. They are in the midst of a five-game losing streak and it may get worse. Many key players went out with injuries during the game. After the game, an alarming number of them were in walking boots and crutches. Packers injuries are piling up.
Packers Injuries Are Piling Up
The Packers must be about out of walking boots and crutches:
Aaron Jones: left foot in boot.
Romeo Doubs: right foot in boot plus crutches.
Eric Stokes: right foot in boot plus crutches.

Packers Aaron Jones, Romeo Doubs, and Eric Stokes all suffered injuries during the game today. Jones came out after the game with his left foot in a boot. Both Doubs and Stokes were seen in boots as well as crutches. While some of this may be precautionary, it is never a good sign to see players needing boots and crutches after a game. Aaron Jones is the best player on the offense. Doubs and Stokes are young players that need the reps to improve their skills. If all of these players are out long-term, the Packers are going to be in some trouble.
A Day Of Lots Of Packers Injuries
These three players were not the only ones that left with the Packers suffering injuries. Rashan Gary was carted off with a knee injury. The Packers provided no diagnosis and this will be something to watch in the coming days. Christian Watson left with another concussion which could keep him out for a couple of weeks. The NFL is cracking down on concussion protocol and the rookie may be forced to shut it down for a while. David Bakhtiari left for a bit in the game but did return for the final drive. Unlike the other Packers injuries, His is no surprise and something the Packers will have to deal with for the rest of the year.
The Packers injuries just add another layer of sadness to Green Bay fans. The team is already in freefall and if they are without a majority of their key players for the next month, the season is all but lost. It will be interesting to see how the Packers decide to play out the rest of the season if many of these key players remain injured. At this point, the Packers should be overly cautious with their star players. There is no need to rush star Packers back from injuries. Get them healthy and make sure we have a competitive team next year.
