Packers vs. Dolphins injury report: Bakhtiari expected to play, Datone Jones 50/50

New, comments

Green Bay's left tackle won't miss Week 6.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Meeting with the media Friday morning, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy provided the latest injury status for his players.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari, who was limited in practice on Thursday with a sore back, is officially "probable" for Sunday's game. As such, he's a near lock to suit up against the Dolphins.

The sprained ankle that sidelined defensive end Datone Jones during last week's game against the Minnesota Vikings may hold him out Week 6 as well. Jones has officially been designated as "questionable," meaning he has only a 50/50 shot at playing.

As expected given his lack of practice time and the promotion of Kevin Dorsey, the team has declared wide receiver Jarrett Boykin out for this weekend. That means Davante Adams will once again operate as Green Bay's No. 3 receiver.

The Packers' full injury report is listed below:
