Of the 22 players combined who are listed on the official Wednesday injury report in advance of this Sunday’s Packers-Vikings game (12 Vikings, 10 Packers), six did not participate and two — Packers defenders Mike Neal and Brady Poppinga — were held out of the practice entirely. Multiple media outlets reported earlier Wednesday that both Neal and Poppinga will sit out the Week Seven game against Minnesota because of shoulder and knee injuries, respectively.

The three players on each team who did not participate in the practice were: FS Nick Collins (knee), WR Donald Driver (quadriceps) and ILB A.J. Hawk (groin) for the Packers and S Husain Abdullah (concussion), TE Jim Kleinsasser (groin) and CB Lito Sheppard (hand) for the Vikings.

High-profile players who practiced on a limited basis include: OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring) for the Packers, and QB Brett Favre (ankle/right elbow) and LB E.J. Henderson (knee) for the Vikings.

The way we see it

The Packers will miss both Neal, who has made his presence felt when he has been able to stay on the field, and Poppinga, who was arguably the team’s best run defender last week before he left the game with a knee injury. But the likely return of Matthews this Sunday should provide a major boost.

For Minnesota, the injury focus is on its secondary, with CB Chris Cook (knee) also showing up on the report in addition to Abdullah, who seems like a long shot for Sunday, and Sheppard.
