14 to 2.

No, those aren't the odds of the Green Bay Packers' football game on Sunday. That's the amount of injured Packers versus the amount of injured Saints on Wednesday's injury report.

It's not breaking news that the Packers have been hit hard by the injury bug. But, there were some promising returners to practice Wednesday.

Most notably, the Packers' fourth-round draft pick and former Wisconsin OLB Vince Biegel practiced for the first time since he broke a bone in his foot during the second day of rookie camp back in May. The Packers have three weeks to activate Biegel from the PUP list.

Additionally, CB Kevin King (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and practiced. However, three other corners were limited in practice: Davon House (quad), CB Lenzy Pipkins (concussion) and Damarious Randall (hamstring).

Running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) was a full participant, but rookie Aaron Jones took first-team reps.

Four Packers who did not participate at all: S Morgan Burnett (hamstring), LG Lane Taylor (ankle), LB Joe Thomas (ankle), and, of course, QB Aaron Rodgers (right collarbone). 

LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) practiced after nagging injuries forced both to drop out of the game in Minneapolis Sunday.

Additional limited participants included LB Ahmad Brooks (back), DT Quinton Dial (chest) and LB Nick Perry (hand/knee).
