Aaron Rodgers: Healthy

The quarterback missed practice on Wednesday because of a thumb injury he picked up during the final moments of the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the New York Giants last week. But according to head coach Matt LaFleur, they “don’t think they have much concern for game day.”

JK Dobbins: Questionable

JK Dobbins had missed all of last season and the first two games of this season due to a torn ACL.
