They are a deep and talented group, and when one man goes down others have stepped up.
Now it appears Aaron Rodgers may get a late Christmas present for the first week of the playoffs. It's possible he could get all of his weapons back on the field this week hasn't happened too often this season.
"Any time you have a number of guys as far as the weapons we have at our disposal, it certainly helps put us in a position to make more plays," said Packers WR Coach Edgar Bennett Wednesday. "Everyone is different, different body types, and different styles."
The last time the Packers "big five"

all recorded a catch in the same game was Decemeber 2nd, before that you have to go all the way back in week 4 against
With Randall Cobb confident he will play after sitting out Sunday, the only thing standing in the way of that possibly happening again Sunday is a knee injury suffered by Nelson against the Vikings last week.
Nelson didn't want to elaborate on when he was injured in the game, and didn't seem overly interested in speculating on his status for Saturday.
"I feel good, I honestly do," Nelson said after a number of questions about his knee. "I feel good. As of today, I would say I plan on playing."
A good example of how good the Packers wide outs have been is over the last four years, four different players have led the team in touchdown catches. This year it's James Jones who led the NFL with 14 scores through the air.
"That's why we're here," Jones said of playing together. "We're here so we can all be healthy on the field at the same time creating mismatch problems for the defense. You can't just key on one person, so it will be huge. Aaron will spread the ball around and he will have a lot of weapons to get the ball to and hopefully we can make some plays."
The Packers big five pass catchers have accounted for 35 of the 49 total offensive touchdowns scored by Green Bay this year.
On Saturday, they hope to cross the goal line early and often.
"You want to get off to a fast start to make them kind of play from behind," said Greg Jennings who caught two touchdowns vs. the Vikings last week. "Get the ball out of their big playmaker's hand, 28 (Adrian Peterson). If you are playing catch up with them and they can just run the ball, that's what they want to do."
What the Packers want to do is show how dangerous their passing offensive can be at full strength, with all the pieces finally in place.
