Packers Dealing with Significant Injuries after Falcons Game

Defensive lineman Mike Daniels, receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, along with offensive tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga are all nicked.

The Bengals are the first team since the 1939 Philadelphia Eagles to open the season with two home games but fail to score a touchdown in either of them. They haven't reached the end zone in 25 possessions, settling for three field goals for the season. "Some things we still need to work out", Bulaga said.

Meanwhile, the fact that Cobb's designation changed from being a shoulder injury during the game to a chest injury on Wednesday's injury report is significant in that the veteran wideout dealt with two bad shoulders throughout the 2015 season. The Green Bay defense was exploited last week and will have to expect a motivated and desperate Bengals side this week.

Despite taking a step back in terms of playing time, Duke Riley was still very much involved against the Packers. "My expectations are to play, but you don't know what can happen between now and then".

Matthews has 74 sacks in his career, which started back in 2009. Houston rookie Deshaun Watson threw for only 125 yards and was sacked three times in his first National Football League start. Daniels went down early against the Falcons last Sunday night and the team needed backup strength on the defensive line so they re-signed Ricky Jean Francois on Wednesday, making room by placing offensive tackle Jason Spriggs on injured reserve with his hamstring injury. Dalton has a passer rating of 47.4 with four interceptions and no TD passes yet. A day after the 13-9 loss to the Texans, longtime coach Marvin Lewis fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese and replaced him with quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor.

"He had surgery for a reason and what they had to do there", McCarthy said. "It's a little disappointing because we came out of training camp so healthy and how quickly it caught up with this", Nelson said. "Trust me, if there was just one thing that was causing these injuries, we would have stopped it a long time ago".
