Not a huge surprise here, but the Green Bay Packers will be without cornerback Quinten Rollins on Sunday. Rollins has been ruled out after falling awkwardly on his neck against Detroit.
He is technically still in concussion protocol. The same goes for running back James Starks, who hasn’t played since getting in a car accident after the week 14 game.
The list of questionable players is lengthy.
They are tackle Bryan Bulaga, receiver Randall Cobb, linebacker Jayrone Elliott, linebacker Nick Perry, cornerback Damarious Randall, linebacker Joe Thomas and center J.C. Tretter.
The biggest concern would probably be Cobb, who hasn’t played in two weeks because of an ankle injury. That being said, the concern is likely greater for Cobb than the Packers, who have seen rookie Geronimo Allison play very well in Cobb’s absence.
Perry is arguably the most indispensable player on the list, but he has played the past two weeks with the very same hand injury that he’s listed with this week. We expect him to go.
Bulaga is a concern because he pulled up with an abdomen injury during the week. We’d see rookie Jason Spriggs step in at right tackle if he can’t go.
Although he is listed as questionable, Thomas was also listed as a full participant in Friday’s non-practice.
The only thing puzzling about the injury report is Nick Perry. Last week (hand) he had full practice all week. This week, same injury, he’s limited all week, and questionable.
