The Green Bay Packers‘ Sunday game against the New York Jets is not expected to be affected by Aaron Rodgers’ thumb injury. However, Rodgers could be missing one of his rookie receivers for an extended period of time.

On Friday, Rodgers went through his second consecutive day of practice. Whether or not his quarterback’s thumb will be bandaged on Sunday, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur doesn’t think the team’s passing game will be affected.

LaFleur commented that he threw the ball exceptionally well yesterday. This explains his self-assurance.
After being listed as questionable on the injury report, Rodgers was removed from it on Friday, securing his starting role against the Jets this coming Sunday.

LaFleur seemed less optimistic than before that rookie Christian Watson would make a speedy recovery from his hamstring injury. Last week against the New York Giants, Watson suffered his second hamstring injury of the season and was declared out for the rest of the season on Friday. While on a route, he was caught by a defensive back and experienced his hamstring tightening.
While exiting the locker room at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, Watson claimed he wasn’t worried about a long-term concern, but LaFleur suggested Friday that the team might halt Watson for a while.

For sure, LaFleur replied, that option is on the table. We’ll have to gauge his current mental state. I’ve heard that they’re still putting him through a battery of tests.

Friday’s workout by outside linebacker Rashan Gary was encouraging for the Packers. After missing Thursday’s practice due to a toe injury, LaFleur said he was unsure whether Gary would show up today. His availability for Sunday’s game was labeled as doubtful. Tipa Galeai, an essential part of the special-teams unit, was also ruled out.
