Flu Outbreak Could Defeat Packers Sunday Even if Seahawks Don't

The Green Bay Packers might want to put their locker room on lockdown.

In recent weeks the Packers have been struck by the flu bug which does not bode well going into their Divisional Round matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Cornerback Josh Jackson is among the players deemed questionable for Sunday with the illness.

Offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins both were sick last week, but thankfully for Green Bay they had the luxury of a first-round bye to ensure everyone gets rested up and healthy.

Green Bay is otherwise heading into this game against Seattle healthy, with Jackson, fullback Danny Vitale, halfback Dexter Williams, and defensive tackle Tyler Lancaster as the only players listed as questionable.

Seattle, on the other hand, is very unhealthy. The Seahawks are one of the most injured teams left in the playoffs with four starters questionable for Sunday.

No Duane Brown or George Fant could be devastating for a team that is desperately trying to keep superstar quarterback Russell Wilson on his feet.

The Packers, meanwhile, might want to get a good night's sleep and take proper medication, among other treatment before this gets out of hand.
