Key Packers Miss Friday's Practice

The Green Bay Packers will hope to put an end to a five-game losing streak in Week 10's matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, but they may be well short of full strength when they take the field. Several key players were absent for the team's final practice of the week on Friday.
Inside Linebacker De'Vondre Campbell is the Packers' leading tackler this year and was a first-team All-Pro in 2021. He missed last week's game with a knee injury suffered in Week 8's 27-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Wide receiver Romeo Doubs was the team's 132nd overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. He ranks third on the team in receiving yards with 314. The rookie played only one offensive snap before injuring his ankle against the Lions.

Defensive back Eric Stokes suffered a knee injury in the Packers' Week 9 15-9 loss to the Detroit Lions. The starting cornerback was the team's 29th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles, defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt, and linebacker Krys Barnes are all rotational pieces on the Packers defense. Their unavailability could leave the team very thin at various position groups.

The Packers' defense has been their strength through nine games of the season, ranking sixth in yards allowed, but they may be reaching a critical mass as far as injuries are concerned. If the team intends to survive this week's matchup with the Cowboys, the Packers' 27th-ranked scoring offense will need to finally show up.
