The infirmary: NFL conference championship injury reports

The Packers have several receivers and defensive backs listed as questionable while the Patriots have the most extensive list of questionable players for Sunday's conference championship games.

The Green Bay Packers listed only two players as out, but three of their top four receivers – Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison – are among the five players listed as questionable. The other two listed as questionable are significant, too – CB Quetin Rollins and S Morgan Burnett – as they face the high-flying Falcons in the NFC Championship Game.

The Atlanta Falcons, meanwhile, listed no one as questionable, doubtful or out, despite WR Julio Jones missing Wednesday and Thursday practices with a toe injury before being limited on Friday. That means he is fully expected to play.

In the AFC Championship, the Pittsburgh Steelers listed TE TE Ladarius Green (concussion, illness) and LB James Harrison (shoulder, triceps) as questionable, while the New England Patriots had several players listed as questionable – with WR Danny Amendola (ankle), TE Martellus Bennett (knee), LB Dont'a Hightower (knee), WR Chris Hogan (thigh), WR Malcolm Mitchell (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) among them.

Here are the full injury reports for Sunday’s conference championship games:
