Packers vs. Broncos inactives: Ty Montgomery out for Green Bay, DeMarcus Ware in for Denver

New, comments

Packers will face the Broncos' top pass rusher on Sunday.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, the Green Bay Packers will have their four injured starters back in the lineup for their Sunday night showdown with the Denver Broncos.

Starting wideout Davante Adams missed most of the Packers' last four games with an ankle sprain, leaving the receiving corps perilously low on vertical threats. The team hopes that Adams' presence allows Randall Cobb to see more single-coverage looks, thus opening up the passing game. At the same time, rookie Ty Montgomery will miss the game as the result of the ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago against the San Diego Chargers.

Meanwhile, the defense returns nose tackle B.J. Raji, safety Morgan Burnett and outside linebacker Nick Perry. Burnett missed the most time of the group, having appeared in only one game prior to Green Bay's Week 7 bye.

As for the Broncos, injured edge rusher DeMarcus Ware is active and should see plenty of playing time Sunday evening. He leads his team in sacks (4.5), and his presence allows for fewer blockers to focus on teammate Von Miller.

Here's the complete injury report for both teams:

Packers

  • TE Kennard Backman
  • CB LaDarius Gunter
  • QB Brett Hundley
  • WR Ty Montgomery
  • LB Andy Mulumba
  • G Lane Taylor
  • G Josh Walker

Broncos

  • CB Lorenzo Doss
  • DL Darius Kilgo
  • WR Jordan Norwood
  • LB Shane Ray
  • TO Ty Sambrailo
  • QB Trevor Siemian
  • OT Shelley Smith
