GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), receiver Christian Watson (hamstring), and tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) all questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta.

Watson returned to practice Friday in a limited capacity. Neither Jones nor Bakhtiari practiced this week.

Jones tweaked his hamstring at the end of his 35-yard touchdown catch in last Sunday's 38-20 win over Chicago. Watson missed the Bears game due to the hamstring injury in practice earlier this month.

"I have a good gauge of where I'm at," said Watson earlier this week. "I'm just going to keep on taking it day by day and just get better every day and hopefully get out there as soon as I can."

If Jones can't go, Green Bay could turn to rookie Emanuel Wilson and third-year veteran Patrick Taylor to complement AJ Dillon in the Packers' backfield on Sunday. Wilson led the NFL with 223 rushing yards and two touchdowns in the preseason.

"He would be the next man up," said LaFleur of Wilson. "If that is the case, he'll be ready to go."

While linebacker Quay Walker was originally listed as questionable (concussion), he cleared concussion protocol on Saturday and has no game-status designation for Sunday's game.

Green Bay didn't issue a game designation for the following players who all are expected to be available: receiver Romeo Doubs (hamstring), linebacker Rashan Gary (knee), guard Elgton Jenkins (knee), safety Anthony Johnson Jr. (knee) and punter Daniel Whelan (finger).

The Falcons have ruled out linebacker Troy Andersen (concussion) and listed cornerback Jeff Okudah (foot) as questionable. Okudah returned to practice this week in a limited capacity.

Running back Cordarrelle Patterson (thigh) didn't receive a game-status designation and will make his 2023 debut Sunday. Defensive lineman Calais Campbell (veteran rest) and tight end Jonnu Smith (veteran rest) also are expected to play.
