According to WISC News 3 in Madison, Wisconsin, here is the injury report on the Packers: LT David Bakhtiari; TE Justin Perillo; DE Mike Daniels; WR Javess Blue; WR Jared Abbrederis; and CB Demetri Goodson are unlikely to see action. LB Clay Matthews; OLB Nick Perry; DB Kyle Sebetic; and CB Tay Glover-Wright may not play.

Jacob Klinger at pennlive.com had this injury report on the Steelers: ILB Lawrence Timmons; ILB Vince Williams; RB Josh Harris; WR David Nelson; WR C.J. Goodwin; and CB Senquez Golson.

Our own Harv Aronson here at City Of Champions Sports joins the chorus of those who are impressed with Le’Veon Bell’s work at training camp.

Perry Biggerstaff of the Still Curtain, part of the FanSided family, predicts what the 53-man roster may look like this season.

Jeff Hartman at Behind The Steel Curtain on SB Nation believes the most significant transaction the Steelers have accomplished this season is the five year contract extension for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Dave Bryan of the Steelers Depot wants to see how well inside linebacker Ian Wild and corner back Kevin Fogg perform against Green Bay. It is their chance to impress the coaching staff and stick with the Black and Gold.

Time to go over the tailgate check list one more time before kick-off.
