3. Jordan Love held to under 200 passing yards

Besides the injury to Jones, Green Bay has suffered injuries to several key offensive players over the last three weeks and has dealt with quite the injury bug lately. Most recently, Packers wideout Christian Watson suffered a hamstring injury on a non-contact play in the fourth quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday and went down grabbing his leg. It appears to be the same hamstring that cost Watson the start of this season, which has concerned many Green Bay fans who hope it is not severe.

While Watson won't play this week, and Jones may take time to regain his full potential, these injuries impact quarterback Jordan Love the most, who may be without two crucial offensive weapons on Monday.

The Packers are also without rookie tight end Luke Musgrave, who suffered a lacerated kidney in Green Bay's win over the Chargers. With all three injuries on offense, Love will have fewer reliable targets to go to, making it more difficult for the Packers to drive down the field consistently.
