GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder/ankle), running back AJ Dillon (thumb/neck), linebacker Isaiah McDuffie (neck) and punter Daniel Whelan (illness) as questionable for Saturday's NFC Divisional playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Green Bay also ruled out linebacker Kingsley Enagbare, who sustained a significant knee injury in Sunday's 48-32 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Alexander didn't practice this week after aggravating the ankle injury that caused him to be questionable for last week's wild-card game against the Cowboys.

"It's where he's at right now and hopefully he'll be ready to go," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur when asked about Alexander's availability for Saturday.

Dillon has missed the last two games with a neck injury but returned Thursday in a limited capacity, while McDuffie left the Dallas game with a stinger and didn't return. Green Bay doesn't have a second punter on the roster, but LaFleur thinks Whelan "will be all right" for Saturday.

Green Bay did not issue a game status for the following players who are expected to be available: defensive lineman Kenny Clark (back), linebacker Rashan Gary (knee), guard Elgton Jenkins (knee/ankle), running back Aaron Jones (knee/finger), cornerback Keisean Nixon (toe), safety Jonathan Owens (knee), receiver Jayden Reed (chest), linebacker Preston Smith (ankle), safety Darnell Savage (shoulder/calf), linebacker Quay Walker (shoulder) and receiver Christian Watson (hamstring).

The 49ers ruled out defensive end Clelin Farrell (knee) and listed linebacker Dre Greenlaw (Achilles) as questionable.

Greenlaw, who sat out of the 49ers' regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, didn't practice on Tuesday before returning Wednesday in a limited capacity.

San Francisco did not issue a game status for the following players who are excepted to be available: cornerback Logan Ryan (groin), tackle Trent Williams (veteran rest), defensive end Arik Armstead (foot/knee), safety George Odum (biceps), safety Ji'Ayir Brown (knee), guard Joe Feliciano (back), safety Tashaun Gipson (quadricep), receiver Danny Gray (shoulder), tight end George Kittle (back), running back Christian McCaffrey (calf), and cornerback Ambry Thomas (hand).
