GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), receiver Christian Watson (hamstring), offensive lineman Zach Tom (knee), and cornerbacks Jaire Alexander (back) and Carrington Valentine (biceps) as questionable for Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay also ruled out tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), guard Elgton Jenkins (knee), linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (ankle) and safety Zayne Anderson (hamstring).

All five players listed as questionable were estimated as limited during the Packers' walkthroughs this week. Watson, Alexander, Tom, and Valentine were all upgraded to limited participation on Tuesday.

Green Bay has been without Jones since its 38-20 win over Chicago on Sept. 10, while Watson is looking to make his 2023 debut after injuring his hamstring in preparation for that Week 1 meeting with the Bears.

"I think it would be huge," said Watson on Tuesday when asked about what his and Jones' returns could mean for Green Bay's offense. "Obviously, I've got a lot of confidence in myself. I think we've been doing some really good things in the wide receiver room. To be able to add another element to that and another element for the offense would be huge for us."

Tom and Valentine were both injured during Sunday's 18-17 comeback win over New Orleans. Head Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed earlier in the week that Valentine did not tear his biceps and said the team will give Tom "up 'til game time to try to get it under control and we'll see where he's at."

Linebacker Rashan Gary (knee) didn't receive a game status and is expected to play.

The Lions have listed running back David Montgomery (thigh), tackle Taylor Decker (ankle), guard Jonah Jackson (thigh), safety Kerby Joseph (hip) and defensive back Emmanuel Moseley (knee/hamstring) as questionable. All five were estimated as limited on Wednesday.

Detroit also ruled out fullback Jason Cabinda (knee), tackle Matt Nelson (ankle) and guard Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee). The Lions didn't issue a game status for center Frank Ragnow (toe/veteran rest) who is expected to play.
