Packers Week 5 Inactives: Green Bay down two corners and two wide receivers

Davante Adams will play, but Geronimo Allison is out today.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Green Bay Packers Wisconsin-USA TODAY NETWORK

The Green Bay Packers will likely have some issues in the secondary today as they take on the Detroit Lions. Although the team gets cornerback Kevin King back on the field this week after a two-week absence, the team will be down a pair of other corners.

Rookie Jaire Alexander is inactive for today’s game, along with recently-signed Packer Bashaud Breeland. That will put a bigger onus on King to stay healthy and productive today opposite veteran Tramon Williams. Also out is safety/slot cornerback Jermaine Whitehead, which likely means that Packers fans will see a lot of rookie Josh Jackson in the slot.

On offense, the Packers are indeed down a pair of wide receivers as well. Davante Adams will play, but Geronimo Allison appears to still be in the concussion protocol and was ruled inactive. That keeps him off the field along with Randall Cobb, who was ruled out on Friday’s injury report. The Packers will likely start Marquez Valdes-Scantling today at one receiver spot, but the other starting position on offense is to be determined.

Here’s the full list of Packers inactives for today.

Packers Inactives

  • CB Jaire Alexander
  • WR Geronimo Allison
  • QB Tim Boyle
  • CB Bashaud Breeland
  • WR Randall Cobb
  • OL Alex Light
  • DB Jermaine Whitehead
