Injury report: QB Aaron Rodgers officially listed as questionable

LBs Clay Matthews, Jake Ryan, Blake Martinez also questionable for Packers vs. Texans


GREEN BAY -- The Packers have officially listed QB Aaron Rodgers as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Houston due to his hamstring injury.

Green Bay has one more on-field workout on Saturday prior to Sunday's game, after Rodgers took very limited reps in practice on Thursday. Earlier in the week, Head Coach Mike McCarthy expressed that he expected Rodgers to play.

Also questionable for the Packers are a trio of linebackers -- Clay Matthews (shoulder), Jake Ryan (ankle) and Blake Martinez (knee). McCarthy also said earlier in the week he expected Matthews to play, though the Pro Bowl defender acknowledged it'll come down to pain tolerance with his injury.

Ryan has been out since the opening moments of the Tennessee game three weeks ago and was close to returning to the field last week before being a game-time scratch. Martinez injured his knee two weeks ago at Washington and returned to practice on a limited basis this week.

If Matthews plays, whether he lines up at inside or outside linebacker will most likely be determined by the status of Ryan and Martinez come game time. Matthews returned to inside linebacker last week and was paired with Joe Thomas when both starters were out.

The Packers are listing offensive linemen T.J. Lang (foot) and JC Tretter (knee) as doubtful, while LB Kyler Fackrell (hamstring) and CB Demetri Goodson (knee) have been ruled out.

T/G Don Barclay (shoulder), LB Jayrone Elliott (hamstring), and CBs LaDarius Gunter (back) and Damarious Randall (groin) have been removed from the injury report and are expected to play.

Among starters for the Texans, DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow/wrist), LB Brian Cushing (back) and S Andre Hal (illness) are all questionable, while OLB John Simon (chest) is out. Backup RB Alfred Blue (calf) is questionable, while starting RB Lamar Miller (ankle/ribs) has been removed from the report.
