Packers rule out two, list two questionable vs. Titans

GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) and guard/tackle Elgton Jenkins (knee) as questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

Green Bay also ruled out linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (knee) and receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle). Cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle) is doubtful.

Of the five aforementioned players, only Jean-Charles practiced on Wednesday. The second-year cornerback was limited after being estimated as a non-participant on Monday and Tuesday.

Bakhtiari and Jenkins played all 64 snaps in Sunday’s 31-28 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys.

While Campbell is slated to miss his third straight game, the Packers are slated to get back linebacker Krys Barnes. The third-year veteran didn’t receive a game status for Thursday night after clearing the concussion protocol. Green Bay was without Barnes against the Cowboys, which left Eric Wilson as the lone reserve inside linebacker behind Quay Walker and Isaiah McDuffie.

In addition to Barnes, the Packers didn’t issue a game status for 11 others who are expected to be available: quarterback Aaron Rodgers (right thumb), running back Aaron Jones (shin), receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder), kicker Mason Crosby (back), cornerback Rasul Douglas (calf), linebacker Kingsley Enagbare (ankle), cornerback Keisean Nixon (calf), guard Jon Runyan (knee), linebacker Preston Smith (shoulder/groin), receiver Christian Watson (ankle), and defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt (foot).

Douglas, Enagbare and Nixon were all upgraded to full participation on Wednesday after previously being estimated as limited.

The Titans have ruled out five: kicker Randy Bullock (right calf), outside linebacker Bud Dupree (hip), defensive back Lonnie Johnson (hamstring), safety Amani Hooker (shoulder), and center Ben Jones (concussion).

Defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and defensive back Elijah Molden (groin) also are listed as questionable. Simmons didn’t practice on Wednesday after being estimated as limited during Tuesday’s walk-through.

The Titans didn’t issue a game status for the following players who are expected to be available: receiver Cody Hollister (back), defensive lineman Denico Autry (veteran rest), offensive lineman Aaron Brewer (toe), cornerback Kristian Fulton (hamstring) , running back Derrick Henry (veteran rest), linebacker David Long (neck), cornerback Roger McCreary (calf), defensive lineman Kevin Strong (ankle) and quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle).
