Lions vs. Packers inactives: Green Bay's O-line healthy again, but Martellus Bennett unavailable

New, comments

The Packers' offensive line will feature all five preferred starters for Monday night's tilt with the Lions.

The Green Bay Packers exited the bye week considerably healthier than when they entered it. For just the second time all season, the team will have all five of its preferred starters along the offensive line.

Neither David Bakhtiari nor Bryan Bulaga appeared on the final injury report, a meaningful development given that both had struggled with hamstring and ankle issues respectively throughout the season. Lane Taylor represents the bigger news, as the team listed the guard as questionable to play. Quarterback Brett Hundley will make his first start with the full group.

The Packers received some good news on defense as well. Kevin King, who the Packers added to the injury report over the weekend with a back injury, will also play tonight. The rookie cornerback will likely resume his role as one of the team's two starting boundary cornerbacks.

But while Green Bay returns several injured players, they will not have tight end Martellus Bennett for Monday night's game against the Detroit Lions. Bennett suffered a shoulder injury during the week and could potentially miss multiple games. Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers should see a boost in playing time due to Bennett's unavailability.
