Key player out for Game against Bears Due to…

The upcoming Sunday showdown between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears in the regular season finale carries significant weight for the Packers as they seek to secure their playoff destiny in the NFC North.

Unfortunately, the Packers will have to face this pivotal game without the presence of their running back, A.J. Dillon, who has been ruled out due to a stinger injury, as reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Head coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Dillon’s absence from the game and also mentioned that wide receiver Christian Watson, who is dealing with a hamstring issue, is questionable for the match despite not participating in practice.

This marks the second game that Dillon will miss this season, with his previous absence stemming from a broken thumb suffered in Week 15, and now, a stinger injury incurred in Week 17.

Throughout the season, the 25-year-old Dillon has managed to accumulate 613 rushing yards and contribute two touchdowns to the Packers’ offensive efforts, maintaining an average of 3.4 yards per carry on 178 attempts.

In their season opener, the Packers secured a victory against the Bears, during which Dillon rushed for a total of 19 yards on 13 carries.

With a win against the Bears this week, the Packers can potentially look forward to Dillon’s return for the wild card round of the playoffs
