GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) and cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) as questionable for Saturday night's NFC Divisional playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is doubtful after not practicing on Wednesday or Thursday.

Guard/tackle Billy Turner (knee), linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (elbow) and running back Aaron Jones (knee) were all full participants this week and are expected to play after sitting out against Detroit in the regular-season finale.

Bakhtiari practiced in pads Wednesday before taking another "load management" day Thursday. The five-time All-Pro left tackle made his 2021-22 season debut in a 27-snap outing against the Lions earlier this month.

"I think Dave's in really good shape. Obviously, he puts a lot of time in," Head Coach Matt LaFleur said. "You don't have to be necessarily in great shape by going play after play out there on the field. I definitely think there is a difference to it in terms of some of the movements you make as a player as opposed to in a controlled environment, but he's working his tail off and we'll see where he's at."

Alexander participated all week in a limited capacity. If given the green light against the 49ers, Saturday would be Alexander's first game since injuring his shoulder against Pittsburgh on Oct. 3, 2021.

Linebackers Za'Darius Smith and Whitney Mercilus, who are both on injured reserve, continued to practice on Thursday. If Smith or Mercilus plays on Saturday, LaFleur said they'd be activated Friday.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest) were not issued a game status for Saturday and are expected to play.

The 49ers listed defensive linemen Nick Bosa (concussion) and Jordan Willis (ankle), and cornerback Ambry Thomas (knee) as questionable. Bosa was upgraded to full participation on Thursday.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said Bosa is still going through the concussion protocol but "it's looking good."

The 49ers didn't issue a game status for the following players who all are expected to be available: linebackers Fred Warner (ankle), Marcell Harris (Achilles), Azeez Al-Shaair (knee) and Dre Greenlaw (groin), running back Elijah Mitchell (knee), safety Talanoa Hufanga (knee) and Jimmy Garoppolo (right shoulder, right thumb).
