The upset-minded Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 48-32 on Sunday night to progress to the divisional round.

There were many positives for the Packers, who were seven-point underdogs against the NFC East champion Cowboys. However, they received some terrible news from the win, which could have an impact on their upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers.

According to ESPN’s NFL Nation Packers writer Rob Demovsky, after Sunday’s win, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur stated that linebacker Kingsley Enagbare’s knee “doesn’t look good” and questioned if star cornerback Jaire Alexander would have returned to the game if he was needed due to his ankle injury.

LaFleur also said that Enagbare was visibly distraught in the locker room, which isn’t what you want to hear if you are a Green Bay fan. Hopefully, we will get a clearer picture of the knee injury that Engabare suffered when LaFleur speaks again to the media this week.

The 23-year-old linebacker played 42% of defensive and 25% of special teams snaps on Sunday. He also recorded a tackle and two quarterback hits.

Engabare had 37 total tackles, eight stuffs, and two tackles for loss this season. It’s never easy losing a key special teams player at this point of the season. That being said, Green Bay will need someone else to step up in Engabare’s place.

As for Alexander, he came into Sunday’s game with an ankle injury he suffered earlier this week by stepping on a teammate’s foot.

There was some uncertainty surrounding the veteran cornerback’s playing status for Sunday’s game. But he ultimately suited up and recorded an interception on Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

The Packers will hope Alexander’s ankle injury won’t give him problems during the week, as they’ll need another complete team effort to upset the No. 1 seed San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round on Saturday. And if you have any doubts about how much of an upset it would be, the Packers opened as 10-point underdogs against the 49ers.
