GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed cornerback Kevin King (back) as questionable and ruled out defensive lineman Kingsley Keke (concussion) for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Kicker Mason Crosby (shoulder) and running back AJ Dillon (quadricep) have been removed from the injury report and are expected to play.
Keke returned to practice on Wednesday in a limited capacity after missing two games, but didn't participate on Friday. King also sat out of Friday's final run-through.
"We'll give him through the week and see where he's at, and hopefully he'll be good to go on Sunday," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur following practice.
Dillon left in the fourth quarter of Green Bay's 32-18 win over the Los Angeles Rams last Saturday and didn't return. He practiced all week in limited fashion.
Crosby, too, was limited in practice this week after sustaining a shoulder injury in the second quarter against the Rams. Sunday will be the 246th consecutive game (including postseason) Crosby has played for the Packers since being drafted in the sixth round out of Colorado in 2007.
Green Bay issued no game statuses for eight others, all of whom are expected to be available Sunday: linebacker Krys Barnes (thumb), receiver Allen Lazard (wrist/back), tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee), safety Will Redmond (knee), linebacker Za'Darius Smith (thumb), receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (knee/ankle), Rick Wagner (knee), and running back Jamaal Williams (ankle).
Tampa Bay has ruled out Antonio Brown (knee) after not practicing this week. The 32-year-old receiver had 45 catches for 483 yards and four touchdowns in eight games with the Buccaneers this season.
The Buccaneers also announced Friday defensive tackle Vita Vea will be activated off injured reserve after practicing this week for the first time since fracturing his ankle in Week 5.
Safety Antoine Winfield (ankle) was added to the injury report after not practicing on Friday. He's been listed as questionable.
The Buccaneers removed the following players from the injury report who are expected to be available: receiver Mike Evans (knee), receiver Chris Godwin (quad), running back Ronald Jones (quad/finger), defensive lineman Jeremiah Ledbetter (calf), guard Ali Marpet (pectoral), cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting (quad/ankle), defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul (knee/not injury related) and safety Jordan Whitehead (knee).
