We will get to the full Friday injury report a bit later this afternoon, but I want to make sure you know about three important just-announced developments:
The Green Bay Packers have ruled out both of their inside linebackers for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop, both of whom have calf injuries, will not play. Coach Mike McCarthy said that rookie D.J. Smith will call the defensive signals.
The Minnesota Vikings have ruled out tailback Adrian Peterson (ankle) for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. Peterson hasn't practiced all week and will miss his second consecutive game. He has never missed three consecutive games in his career.
