GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed linebacker Preston Smith (oblique), cornerback Kevin King (shoulder) and safety Darnell Savage (concussion) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team.

Center Josh Myers (knee) and tackle Dennis Kelly (back) have been ruled out after not practicing this week.

Smith returned Friday after sitting out of the first two practices this week. The seventh-year linebacker has yet to miss game in his NFL career, having played in all 107 games (regular season and postseason) since he entered the league with Washington in 2015.

Smith's 102 consecutive regular-season games played is the longest active streak most among outside linebackers and second among pass-rushers, trailing only New Orleans defensive end Cam Jordan.

"Certainly, he's an important part of this football team and you want him there for the long haul," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur after Friday's practice. "(His availability) is solely going to be based upon how he's feeling. I think that he's come a long way but we'll see how he feels on Sunday." 

King sat out last Sunday against Chicago with a shoulder injury but practiced in limited fashion all week. Savage exited with a concussion on the first play of the second half but returned Thursday and continued to practice on Friday on a limited basis.

Without Myers, the Packers likely will turn to veteran Lucas Patrick to make his second NFL start at center on Sunday. Patrick played all but four snaps against the Bears.

The Packers didn't give a game-status designation for receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (shoulder) who is expected to be available.

Washington has listed starting running back Antonio Gibson (shin) as questionable, and ruled out guard Brandon Scherff (knee), tackle Sam Cosmi (ankle), receiver Curtis Samuel (groin), and receiver Cam Sims (hamstring).

Cornerback Williams Jackson III (knee) and defensive end Shaka Toney (illness) are also questionable to play.

Washington didn't give a game status for the following players who are expected to be available: receivers Terry McLaurin (hamstring) and Dyami Brown (knee), defensive tackle Jonathan Allen (knee), tight end Ricky Seals-Jones (quad), and tackle Charles Leno Jr. (veteran rest).
