After falling to defeats in their opening games of the NFL season, Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions will both be looking to get that first win on the table when they meet on Monday night (M0ney Line – Packers 2/11, Lions 4/1).
Green Bay will be hoping to benefit from home advantage on Tuesday but head coach Matt LaFleur has several injury concerns to contend with.
LaFleur has issues at safety with Vernon Scott already ruled out for the second successive week, while Darnell Savage has joined him on the treatment table after picking up a knock against the Saints.
Lucas Patrick is a doubt and tight end Josiah Deguara will need to be assessed ahead of kick-off at Lambeau Field.
Za’Darius Smith also has a back injury and LaFleur will need to shuffle the pack as they attempt to get their season off the mark.
Meanwhile, the Lions, who went 4-4 on the road last season, are set to be without defensive end Kevin Strong and wide receiver Tyrell Williams.
When asked about Williams in his pre-match press conference, head coach Dan Campbell said: “I’d say he’s out. Tyrell is out and so is (Kevin) Strong.”
Strong impressed against the 49ers and is likely to be replaced by rookie DE Levi Onwuzurike, who missed Week 1 with a hip injury.
Defensive end Michael Brookers, outside linebacker Trey Flowers, wide receiver Kalif Raymond and running back D’Andre Swift are all doubts.
