GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed safety Adrian Amos (hamstring) and cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Tight end Robert Tonyan (hip) has been listed as doubtful after not practicing on Friday. Receiver Davante Adams (toe) was one of 15 players removed from the injury report who are expected to play Sunday.

Alexander was added to the injury report after Friday's practice, while Amos returned in limited capacity after sitting out on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Amos, who played all 71 snaps last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, leads Green Bay with 596 defensive snaps played this season. He's missed only four games in his five-year career, with the most recent coming against Detroit on Dec. 16, 2017.

Tonyan practiced in pads each of the past two Thursdays before not participating on either Friday. He's been out since injuring his hip against Dallas on Oct. 6.

"He gets close and then something doesn't feel right," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur of Tonyan. "And we're never going to put him out there if it's a situation where he can do further damage to himself or if we don't feel like he can do everything that we're asking of him."

Adams was limited in practice this week but continues to make progress in his recovery from a toe injury that sidelined him for four games.

The two-time Pro Bowl receiver played 42 of the offense's 50 snaps in his return last Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers, catching a team-high seven passes for 41 yards.

"It gets beat up a little bit but it's definitely no setbacks. Nothing like that," said Adams on Wednesday. "We just want to be smart so I can heal up and continue to get better and better. Because, like I said last week, I'm obviously healed at this point but as far as being a thousand percent back to myself, I wouldn't quite say I'm quite there yet. But I'm able to do a lot of things right now and do what I can to contribute."

The Packers removed 14 others from the injury report who are expected to play: quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee), running back Aaron Jones (shoulder), receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) and Jake Kumerow (shoulder), tight ends Jimmy Graham (veteran rest) and Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest), tackle Bryan Bulaga (veteran rest), linebackers Preston Smith (hand), Blake Martinez (hand) and Oren Burks (chest), defensive lineman Kenny Clark (shin), cornerbacks Kevin King (groin) and Tramon Williams (veteran rest), and safety Will Redmond (elbow).

Carolina ruled out tackle Greg Little (concussion), and listed defensive tackle Vernon Butler (back) and cornerback James Bradberry (groin) as questionable.
