Note–Significant ankle injury to sideline Grant: His long-term prognosis has not been determined but RB Jackson will have to carry the load this week against Buffalo. Meanwhile, injury-plagued DE Harrell’s season has ended with a torn ACL going on injured reserve.
Coach McCarthy’s day-after press conference: DE Jenkins will play with the cast on the injured wrist. Won’t know about DE Neal’s availability until Wednesday. Rookie Shields was solid in nickel and so was S Burnett as well, although both tentative at times. QB Rodgers played too fast to start the game and missed some throws early. NT Raji played between 50 and 60 snaps and did well, especially against mobile quarterback Vick.
Report: According to twitter reports, DE Wynn on his way to Green Bay.
