The Jaguars will face the Packers without running back Maurice Jones-Drew in the lineup, but Blaine Gabbert's injury to his non-throwing shoulder will not keep him out of the Week 8 game.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the challenge that is the Green Bay Packers in Week 8, and the latest injury report indicates that it's likely to be an especially difficult game. Sunday will be the first of several games missed by star running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who injured his foot early in the Jags' loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who is dealing with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, is expected to play. Also out on Sunday is defensive back Dwight Lowery, who continues to miss time due to an ankle injury.
The Packers also have notable holes in their lineup. Wide receiver Greg Jennings will miss Sunday's game, and on the defensive side of the ball Charles Woodson's fractured collarbone has taken him off the field for up to six weeks.
