Packers battling injuries, 13 on Injury Report

Incredibly, the Bengals are one of the worst teams in the National Football League this season, and failed to score a touchdown in both of their home games to start the season.

Bill Lazor will make his debut as the Bengals' offensive coordinator after being promoted from quarterbacks coach to replace the fired Ken Zampese.

Are the Bengals of All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green, tight end Tyler Eifert, and quarterback Andy Dalton ready to score a touchdown?

There's still no guarantee Bulaga and Nelson will play Sunday against the Bengals, and Rodgers admitted the Packers would have to make significant adjustments on offense if that foursome all was scratched. I'm definitely going to keep that door open.

Both teams are probably going to feature draft choice rookies in a "future is now " move. Now, they have to go on the road and play the Packers, which will prove to be too much on Sunday.

The stiffer test for everyone involved, including those who practiced Wednesday, will be to get through today's in-pads practice.

With the Packers trailing and looking to throw the ball, Takk was on the field for 44 snaps, good for 58 percent of the Falcons' defensive total.

The Packers' last win in the series was a 13-6 decision at Riverfront Stadium in 1998. Marvin Lewis is 3-0 vs GB. They were shutout in week 1 and put up just three field goals in week 2.

While the Packers are thankful none of the injuries ended up being season ending ones, they still have a lot to worry about.

They are in a transition period, and for the first time since 2004, they are playing without tackle Andrew Whitworth, linebacker Rey Maualuga or defensive tackle Dogmata Peko on the roster. However, once the regular season started, Packers fans hoped that the offensive line would correct itself. If he does not return, the Green Bay Packers will likely start Kyle Murphy at left tackle and Justin McCray at right tackle once again.

Ironically, that sack also came in a game on September 20.

Injuries are the story of this week. Another player who will have a huge impact on Rodgers' success is star receiver Jordy Nelson. Jones destroyed the Packers' secondary for 180 yards and two touchdowns as Atlanta ran away with the game early.
