Packers fans, your worries about having to scramble to find a punter for the biggest game in three years are apparently unfounded.
Matt Schneidman reports this about Packers punter J.K. Scott.
#Packers punter JK Scott (illness) is expected to play in today’s NFC Championship Game after being added to the injury report as questionable yesterday, per source.— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) January 19, 2020
He reportedly was suffering from the flu, an ailment which affected the Packers throughout last week as well.
This season, Scott averaged 44.0 yards per punt. His average was just 28th in the NFL, but he often succeeded in pinning teams deep, assisting the Packers defense tremendously.
