The players of the Green Bay Packers are apparently dealing with a flu outbreak in their locker room.
The outbreak has affected their play against the Seattle Seahawks in their divisional-round playoff matchup Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field.
After Saturday’s practice game, Packers cornerback Josh Jackson was added to the list of questionable players. Six players were found to have an illness, according to Friday’s final injury report.
On January 11, Green Bay Packers (@packers) tweeted, “#Packers CB Josh Jackson (illness) has been added to the injury report & is QUESTIONABLE for #SEAvsGB.”
The Seahawks were also hit with the flu late in the regular season, which was spread throughout the locker room. The Seahawks players have also suffered their share of absences due to injuries; however, this recent development in Green Bay could make the challenge of facing the Packers at Lambeau Field a bit easier for Seattle, especially if players like Jackson are ruled out on the game day.
