— A.J. Hawk had a "chronic wrist injury" that will require arthroscopic surgery. That's the only surgery at this point, McCarthy said.
— Charles Woodson, as had been announced, broke his collarbone during the second quarter. He will not need surgery and should be fine for the start of next season.
— Donald Driver, who exited in the second quarter with a sprained ankle, probably would not have been able to play if there were a game next week.
— Jordy Nelson, with Driver sidelined, played through a bruised bursa sac and finished with nine catches for 140 yards and a touchdown. During the Return to Titletown Celebration, Nelson hobbled onto the field with crutches. "He'll be fine. It won't be a serious injury," McCarthy said. "Obviously it looked bad. It was a pretty significant injury that he fought through the fourth quarter and played with. Played very well but played injured. A lot of credit should go to Jordy Nelson for fighting through that."
— Sam Shields was unable to finish the game with a sprained shoulder that he suffered in the second quarter. (He briefly returned in the fourth quarter but left again.) More testing will be done.
— Chad Clifton will not need surgery on his knees, which kept him on the injury report all season.
