GREEN BAY, WI Jayden Reed, a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers

The uncertain status of a large portion of Green Bay’s receiving corps is reflected in Reed’s situation, as the Packers (6-7) have limited time to prepare for their Sunday game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7).

On the injury report on Wednesday were three of the top four receivers for Green Bay. Dontayvion Wicks and Reed both had ankle problems, and Christian Watson missed Green Bay’s 24-22 loss to the New York Giants on Monday night due to a hamstring injury.

“We’ve had so many reps with other guys in our offense that I’m comfortable. Those guys are comfortable. It’s really that next-man-up mentality.”

Although the Packers didn’t practice Wednesday because of the short week, Green Bay’s injury report indicated Watson and Wicks wouldn’t have participated if the team had a full workout. The injury report indicated Reed would have practiced on a limited basis.

Reed is optimistic about his chances of playing Sunday.

“We just did jog-through and everything today, and I’m good to go,” said Reed, who has 48 catches for a team-high 540 yards.
