GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed guard Elgton Jenkins (ankle) as questionable and ruled out cornerback Kevin King (shoulder) for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Backup tackle Dennis Kelly has been ruled out to play Sunday after he did not practice this week due to a back injury. Receiver Malik Taylor is questionable with an illness that caused him to miss practice Friday.

Jenkins, who has missed three games after injuring his ankle last month against Detroit, returned to practice last Thursday and continued to work in a limited capacity this week.

"We'll give him up till game time," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur after Friday's practice. "He was out there today in a limited capacity, worked a lot of different combinations."

The Packers are expected to have starting center Josh Myers back after he missed last Sunday's game with a finger issue. The rookie second-round pick practiced in full this week.

King returned last Sunday against Cincinnati after missing two games with a concussion but exited in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury and didn't practice this week.

Without King and All-Pro Jaire Alexander currently on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, the Packers will need to tap into their cornerback depth against the Bears.

Veteran Isaac Yiadom replaced King against the Bengals, though Chandon Sullivan, Rasul Douglas and Shemar Jean-Charles also are options to play on the perimeter.

"We've got lot of different guys we can put out there," LaFleur said. "Rasul is one of the guys. Ike (Yiadom), who has been here for a while now. And then we also have Sully and Shemar, and then we've got Quinton Dunbar on the p-squad. So we've got plenty of options."

In addition to Myers, the Packers didn't issue a game-status designation for the following players who are all expected to be available: receivers Davante Adams (veteran rest) and Randall Cobb (veteran rest), running back Aaron Jones (ankle), defensive lineman Jack Heflin (ankle), safety Vernon Scott (knee), and tight ends Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest).

Chicago has ruled out linebacker Caleb Johnson (knee) and tight end J.P. Holtz (quadricep), and listed 10 players as questionable: outside linebacker Khalil Mack (foot), inside linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe (hamstring), defensive backs Eddie Jackson (knee), Artie Burns (foot), Xavier Crawford (back), and Duke Shelley (ankle), defensive lineman Akiem Hicks (groin), receivers Allen Robinson (ankle) and Jakeem Grant (groin), and running back Ryan Nall (ankle).

While Jackson and Burns have been added to the injury report and are listed as questionable, both defensive backs were full participants in Friday's practice. Robinson and Hicks returned to practice in a limited capacity on Friday, while Mack didn't practice.

The following Bears players didn't receive an game-status designation and are expected to play: quarterback Justin Fields (rib/knee), tight end Jimmy Graham (veteran rest), linebacker Christian Jones (back), receiver Darnell Mooney (groin) and linebacker Danny Trevathan (knee).
