GREEN BAY – The Packers updated the injury status of receiver Geronimo Allison to questionable following Saturday's practice. Initially listed as doubtful to play vs. Oakland in Friday's injury report, Allison joins fellow wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling as questionable to suit up against the Raiders. Wide receiver Davante Adams was ruled out for Sunday’s game.

In addition to safety Darnell Savage (ankle) being ruled out, the Packers also listed tight end Robert Tonyan (hip) as doubtful, and cornerback Tony Brown (hamstring) and defensive lineman Kenny Clark (calf) as questionable.

Adams has missed the last two games with turf toe, while Allison (concussion/chest) exited after a hit from Lions safety Tracy Walker on the first play of the second half against Detroit on Monday night and didn’t return.

Valdes-Scantling also left briefly in the second quarter against but returned to catch a 46-yard pass on the first play of the fourth quarter. None of the three receivers practiced through Friday of this week.

“I’ve got two days to get it going,” said Valdes-Scantling on Friday. “I’ve gotten better every single day. Obviously, I won’t go out there if I can’t help this team out. I don’t want to be a detriment to the team. That’s the focus. If I can go, I’ll go. If I can’t, I can’t.”

If Valdes-Scantling and/or Allison can’t go, the Packers will turn to undrafted receivers Allen Lazard, Jake Kumerow and Darrius Shepherd. The team also signed sixth-year veteran Ryan Grant Wednesday.

“It’s been a grind,” Grant said. “Really just been honing in on the plays and trying to learn as much as I can for this weekend and just taking it a day at a time, and trying to learn as much as possible to help us on Sunday.”

The Packers removed nine players from the injury report who are expected to play: quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee), running back Aaron Jones (shoulder), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), linebackers Za’Darius Smith (knee) and Oren Burks (chest), tackle Bryan Bulaga (veteran rest), cornerbacks Kevin King (knee/groin) and Tramon Williams (knee), and safety Will Redmond (shoulder/ankle).

Meanwhile, Oakland has ruled out receiver Tyrell Williams (foot) and defensive end Arden Key (knee). Tackle Trent Brown (calf) is doubtful, while receiver/returner Dwayne Harris and guard Gabe Jackson (knee) are questionable.
