Green Bay’s starting defense is dealing with a number of injuries, with cornerback Jaire Alexander, safety Rudy Ford, linebackers De’Vondre Campbell and Rashan Gary, and defensive lineman Kenny Clark being limited in practice during the week. Alexander, Ford, and Campbell are listed as questionable. Clark and Gary should be good to go after not receiving an injury designation.
