Wayne Larrivee's Packers-Bengals Scouting Report II: Inside the combatants

Rodgers

Linebacker Nick Perry had surgery yesterday for a broken finger.

The Packers lost 34-23 to the Atlanta Falcons last week, while the Bengals have lost both their games and have yet to score a touchdown. They fired their offensive coordinator last week and there's talk of benching starting quarterback Andy Dalton. He also added that none of the injuries appear to be season ending.

"We have to have a direction of execution and things have to fit together and we've got to provide opportunity to attack the defense", Lewis said. This could be more of a shootout than people expect if the Packers injuries are indeed a factor. The Packers have started 1-1 for the 5th time in the last 6 years.

The Packers could be able to withstand being without Nelson and Cobb for a short period because of depth at receiver.




"I think Davante had a great game, [and] I think Geronimo, his first action, got back in there and made a couple plays", Rodgers said. "It's just unfortunate. I really wanted to come here and show what I was all about from the jump and that's (what happens) the very first game of the season". Houston rookie Deshaun Watson threw for only 125 yards and was sacked three times in his first National Football League start.

Linebacker Clay Matthews is sitting at 74 career sacks. 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. But right now I'm day to day and I'm doing everything I can to get on the field for Sunday. So if that's his goal, that's my goal, too.

"I'm OK", Rodgers said Wednesday. After an injury-filled 2016 season, the nine-year veteran is off to a good start this season with 1½ sacks.

Many of them have been soft-tissue problems, but McCarthy said it's not a pattern. "Trust me, if there was just one thing that was causing these injuries, we would have stopped it a long time ago".
