Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown cleared for Saturday vs. Browns

DL Kenny Clark returns to practice; Cleveland lists Myles Garrett as questionable

WR Equanimeous St. Brown

GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) was a full participant Thursday and is expected to be available for Saturday's game with the Cleveland Browns.

Green Bay ruled out tackles Billy Turner (knee) and David Bakhtiari (knee), linebacker Ty Summers and receiver Malik Taylor (shoulder). Tight end Dominique Dafney (ankle) is questionable.

The Packers also could have Kenny Clark back after the Pro Bowl defensive tackle returned to practice Thursday.

Clark, who was selected to his second Pro Bowl on Wednesday, was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list last Friday and missed Sunday's 31-30 win over the Baltimore Ravens. He leads Green Bay's defensive line with 42 tackles and four sacks this season.

"He's still going through the protocol," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur of Clark after practice. "It was great to have him back in the building. It was great to see him out there at practice. Provided he clears, then he'll play, but we'll see where he's at and making sure that he is, first of all, healthy, because that's the most important thing and that he feels confident to go out there and play at a high level."

In addition to St. Brown, the Packers didn't give a game status for the following players who are all expected to be available: quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe), tight end Josiah Deguara (back), running back Aaron Jones (knee), and receiver Amari Rodgers (shoulder).

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (groin) didn't practice this week but is listed as questionable. Garrett leads Cleveland with 15 sacks in 14 games this season.

Defensive tackle Malik Jackson (knee) is also questionable, while safety John Johnson III (hamstring) has been ruled out. Center JC Tretter also was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

Cleveland didn't issue a game status for the following players who are expected to be available: tight end Harrison Bryant (ankle), tight end David Njoku (knee), cornerback Denzel Ward (groin) and linebacker Slone Takitaki (shoulder).

Browns run game coordinator and running backs coach Stump Mitchell will not be available to coach in Saturday's game against the Packers and will be out indefinitely while he tends to a medical issue related to a previous knee injury. Browns coaching assistant Ryan Cordell will serve as interim running backs coach and senior offensive assistant Kevin Rogers will also assist with Mitchell's coaching duties until he is able to return.

Browns offensive assistant coach T.C. McCartney is currently positive for COVID-19. If he is unable to coach on Saturday then his duties will be split across the offensive staff.
