GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The Packers try to extend their winning streak to four games today against an Arizona Cardinal team which has lost four in a row. Green Bay has been hard-hit by injuries and will have a bye week to recuperate after todays game. It’s fading from the memory, but Arizona started the season with four straight wins. Held to just seven rushing yards last week, the Cardinals dropped their fourth in a row. The seven rushing yards total is the team’s fewest in nearly 60 years. Arizona has had troubles scoring, but its defense remains one of the best in the league.
The Packers will be without five starters today. Wide receiver Greg Jennings is out after having surgery last Thursday. Also missing will be safety Charles Woodson, linebacker Nick Perry, corner back Sam Shields and fullback John Kuhn. Rookies Jerel Worthy and Jerron McMillian are hurt. Worthy will miss the Cardinal game, while McMillian is listed as questionable with a bad back. Wide receiver Jordy Nelson is also questionable with a hamstring injury.
Pregame coverage begins on WHBL at 10am, with kickoff set for Noon.
