The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
When the 49ers and Seahawks square off Thursday it could mean the end of one of the two’s playoff chances. While neither will be technically eliminated, the loser will essentially need to win out, which is a tough task when considering the two teams remaining schedules.
