The Green Bay Packers will be without at least one of their starting receivers today at Detroit.

The Packers enter the contest in second place in the NFC North at 2-1-1 with the Lions coming in at the bottom at 1-3. After hurting his left knee in the opener, Rodgers practiced only on Saturdays in Weeks 2 and 3 but did not miss a game.

The Lions, who didn't face Rodgers a year ago, have won three straight in the series for the first time the 1990-91 seasons. Valdes-Scantling is the only rookie wideout to make a catch during a regular season game. Both he and Equanimous St.

McCarthy is responsible for getting his team ready to play.

The Packers made an terrible start in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

LeGarrette Blount scored the Lions' first two touchdowns on 1-yard runs, and 17 of the Lions' 24 first-half points came after Packers turnovers.

Despite holding a seven-minute advantage in time of possession, gaining twice as many yards on offense, and converting 12 more first downs, the Packers only tallied 23 points.

The Lions' third scoring drive started at the Green Bay 22, after Romeo Okwara hit Rodgers from behind to force a fumble on the second-to-last play of the first quarter, and ended in a short Matt Prater field goal.

Adams suffered a calf injury Wednesday and has not participated in workouts since. With two exceptions - 2011 in which the Packers went 15-1 and a year ago where they flatlined - the Packers have answered by making the playoffs.

What's most troubling about this isn't the 2-2-1 record or the fact that the team has looked vanilla, it's that Aaron Rodgers looks mortal.

The Lions pass defense now ranks second in the league in yards allowed per game. I've got to play better in the first half. Tramon Williams backed off of the ball, and it bounced around and eventually landed on the Packers 1-yard line.

This time Detroit came out inspired with quarterback Matthew Stafford making the 117th straight start of his career. "When you step in, there's an expectation you're going to make the plays.' So, we've got to keep improving in practice". During training camp, quarterback Aaron Rodgers voiced his frustration with the work ethic and progress of his young wideouts, complaining to the press that their effort during one drill was "piss poor". The Packers offense looked as uninspired, undisciplined, and sloppy as it has looked all year. Rodgers said. "They are trying to catch the ball". But the Packers have put up point with unproven youngsters before.
