GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed receivers Christian Watson (hamstring) and Randall Cobb (illness), tight end Marcedes Lewis (groin) and tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

Receiver Allen Lazard (ankle), defensive lineman Kenny Clark (groin), offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (knee) and kicker Mason Crosby (illness) didn't receive game statuses and are expected to play. It'll mark Crosby's 244th consecutive game played.

Receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) has been ruled out after not practicing since Wednesday.

Lazard and Lewis returned to practice Friday after sitting out Thursday. Bakhtiari was a limited participant for the second straight day. Cobb did not practice this week.

With Watkins out and two other receivers questionable, Head Coach Matt LaFleur told reporters before Friday's practice that rookie fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs is "probably gonna have to take more of a load this week."

Doubs has six catches for 64 yards on 60 offensive snaps this season, but said Thursday he's prepared to play upwards of that Sunday if he's called upon.

"I would be really comfortable with that," Doubs said. "I just want to do my best to help the team win for this week, so whatever happens happens. I'm in control with my own destiny and I'm going to make sure that I prepare and do my part to the best of ability."

The Buccaneers ruled out receiver Chris Godwin (hamstring) and defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (foot), while left tackle Donovan Smith (elbow) and tight end Cade Otton (personal) are doubtful. Smith didn't practice Friday after returning to practice on Thursday.

Four Buccaneers have been listed as questionable: running back: Leonard Fournette (hamstring), and receivers Julio Jones (knee) receiver Breshad Perriman (knee), and Russell Gage (hamstring)

Tampa Bay didn't give a game status for the following players who are all expected to be available: quarterback Tom Brady (right finger), linebacker Lavante David (rest), cornerback Carlton Davis (hip), receiver Scotty Miller (calf), cornerback Zyon McCollum (hamstring) and center Robert Hainsey (knee).
