And even if he does play against the Vikings, it remains to be seen just how effective he will be with his thumb injury.
For now, the task at hand is getting ready to strap it up with only three days to recover, instead of six. Buffalo rookie Josh Allen back in September? 196. The Vikings interior offensive lineman struggle in pass protection as none of them have a grade higher than a 56.9 in that area. In a word, turnovers.
But the problem is much deeper and more terrifying than just that, as the offensive line is basically bad and it's not something that can be fixed at this point in the season.
In Minnesota's three losses in 2017 and '18 at home, the Vikings have lost the turnover battle by a collective 8-1. The injury is not considered serious, but it could keep him out of the Lions game.
So, there's the formula for beating the Vikings on the road - protect the ball, take it away, and convert turnovers into points. The Packers are well aware that their hopes for this season ride on this game and I expect them to come out and play like a desperate team from the opening whistle.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: Manchester City are far above everyone else
Asked which of the current Tottenham side he would like in his team, Sarri said: "I like Eriksen very much. Meanwhile, Sarri has revealed that he would love to steal Danish star Christian Eriksen away from Spurs.
The Packers passed on activating Kumerow to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday night's showdown with the Minnesota Vikings.
"I think we have good players, we have dynamic guys, guys that can make plays in different ways", Lions head coach Matt Patricia said. And then we've got to make plays. In his seven games (two starts) with the Broncos, Jones intercepted a pass, defended another three, made nine tackles and returned 10 punts (25 yards) and four kickoffs (85 yards).
But maybe the fumble in Seattle was a good sign.
"I have great confidence", McCarthy said. That's a pattern that we need to do a better job of. This weakness plays right into Mike Pettine's ideal blitz scheme as he will look to break down the Vikings interior with Dean Lowry, Tyler Lancaster, and Montravius Adams, and send Kyler Fackrell, Kenny Clark, and Clay Matthews up the A gap to come after Cousins.
Minnesota's defense has kept offenses under wraps.
How much money does the victor of Tiger vs. Phil make?
Phil Mickelson was both delighted and relieved after holing from four feet to win $9m with victory over Tiger Woods in The Match. Only 700 invited guests were allowed to watch what was billed as golf's first pay-per-view broadcast.
But always, there has been this nagging sense that it hasn't been quite enough, that McCarthy should have added more than one Super Bowl title to the Packers' collection with Rodgers as his quarterback.
"[It's focusing on] sleep, recovery, condensing the game plan and trying to get as much in as possible", quarterback Mitch Trubisky said.
The Vikings (5-4-1) have a 51 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to ESPN's FPI, and that number jumps to 70 percent with a victory over Green Bay (4-5-1) on Sunday night.
Including the postseason, Green Bay is 12-7-1 against Minnesota with Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback, and has won or tied 12 of the last 16 contests.
It's always the talk of the National Football League, how turnovers win and lose games, so this is nothing new. Harris grabbed two interceptions against the Chicago Bears last Sunday.

To beat the Vikings at their place, the blueprint is clear.
