GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed guard Elgton Jenkins (ankle) as questionable, and ruled out center Josh Myers (finger) and cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Green Bay also listed tackle Dennis Kelly (illness) as questionable.

Myers has been playing through the finger injury the past few weeks but did not practice this week after a consultation with team doctors.

"He's had a finger issue he's been playing through and the doctors won't let him do it," Head Coach Matt LaFleur said after practice Friday. "I don't think it's going to be anything long-term. Hopefully, if he gets cleared, he'll be back with us next week but it's something that the doctors are holding him out."

The Packers have several options at center. Jenkins made three spot starts there in place of Corey Linsley last year, while veterans Lucas Patrick and Jon Runyan, and 2020 sixth-round pick Jake Hanson have all played center in the past.

LaFleur said the team is hopeful the shoulder injury Alexander suffered in last Sunday's 27-17 win over Pittsburgh will heal without surgery, but he'll be out this week.

The Packers should have cornerback Kevin King (concussion) back after he was a full participant in Friday's practice and did not receive a game-status designation for Sunday. The same goes for linebacker Krys Barnes (concussion), who also should be available.

Six other Packers players are expected to be available Sunday after not receiving a game status: running backs Aaron Jones (ankle) and AJ Dillon (back), defensive linemen Dean Lowry (ankle) and Jack Heflin (ankle), cornerback Isaac Yiadom (quadricep), and tight end Marcedes Lewis (not injury related).

Running back Joe Mixon (ankle) was again missing from practice on Friday and is one of five players the Bengals have listed as questionable, along with center Trey Hopkins (knee), guard D'Ante Smith (illness), cornerback Trae Waynes (hamstring) and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi (knee).

Guard Xavier Su'a-Filo (knee) has been ruled out, while receiver Mike Thomas (ankle) is doubtful.

These five Bengals didn't receive a game status and are expected to be available: cornerback Chidobe Awuzie (groin), receivers Tee Higgins (shoulder) and Stanley Morgan (ribs), safety Jessie Bates III (neck) and linebacker Akeem Davis-Gaither (trap).
