New, comments

Green Bay's starting defensive end will get an extra week to let his ankle heal.

When the Green Bay Packers take the field later today, they'll do so without starting defensive end Datone Jones. Jones, who sprained his ankle during the Packers' Week 5 tilt with the Minnesota Vikings, was listed as questionable coming into the day. The team has apparently decided not to push him into action. His likely replacement will be a combination of Josh Boyd and Luther Robinson.

Green Bay will also play without wide receiver Jarrett Boykin who remains hampered by a groin injury. The third-year receiver has missed the last two games and will be replaced primarily by rookie Davante Adams. Adams scored his first career touchdown last week.

As for the Miami Dolphins, they'll have both Knowshon Moreno and Mike Pouncey back in the lineup. Moreno injured his elbow earlier this season while Pouncey has yet to suit up this season while recovering from a torn labrum in his hip.

Here are the full inactive lists for both teams:

Packers

  • WR Jarrett Boykin
  • QB Scott Tolzien
  • CB Demetri Goodson
  • LB Carl Bradford
  • LB Sam Barrington

  • DE Datone Jones

Dolphins

  • RB Daniel Thomas
  • DT Deandre Coleman
  • G Shelly Smith
