GREEN BAY – The Packers are expected to have nearly all of their starters available for Thursday night’s opener against the Chicago Bears after removing 16 players from their injury report.
Among those players slated to play against the Bears are cornerback Kevin King and tight end Jimmy Graham. King didn’t play in the preseason due to a hamstring injury, but returned to practice this past week.
Graham sustained a finger injury two weeks ago, but was upgraded to a full participant in practice Tuesday.
The Packers also removed 14 others from the injury report: running backs Aaron Jones (hamstring) and Jamaal Williams (hamstring), fullback Danny Vitale (calf), offensive linemen Bryan Bulaga (rest), Alex Light (wrist) and Cole Madison (ankle), cornerbacks Tramon Williams (knee) and Josh Jackson (Achilles), safety Will Redmond (ankle), defensive linemen Kenny Clark (ankle), Montravius Adams (groin), Tyler Lancaster (ankle) and Fadol Brown (calf), and linebacker Blake Martinez (Back).
Cornerback Ka’dar Hollman (neck) is questionable to play against Chicago after being limited this week in practice, while linebacker Oren Burks (chest) and receiver Darrius Shepherd (hamstring) have been ruled out.
The Bears listed three players as questionable – tight end Trey Burton (groin), offensive lineman Rashaad Coward (elbow) and defensive tackle Bilal Nichols (knee).
