Packers list LB Quay Walker, S Rudy Ford as questionable for Sunday | Week 9 Injury Report

QB Matthew Stafford will be a game-time decision for Rams


GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed linebacker Quay Walker (groin) and safety Rudy Ford (calf) as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

Ford, who was listed as limited on Thursday, did not practice on Friday. Walker participated in practice the first two days this week but "came in feeling tight" on Friday, according to Head Coach Matt LaFleur.

Isaiah McDuffie and Eric Wilson have been the next men up at inside linebacker this season, while Dallin Leavitt, rookie Anthony Johnson Jr. or Zayne Anderson could step in for Ford if he's unable to go.

Meanwhile, cornerback Jaire Alexander (back) and running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) are expected to be available on Sunday after not receiving a game status. Jones, who practiced all week in a red non-contact jersey, is coming off a season-high 35 snaps last Sunday against Minnesota.

"He had a good week, got a great attitude and ready to cut him loose," LaFleur said.

In addition to Alexander and Jones, Green Bay didn't issue a game status for guard Elgton Jenkins (knee), tight end Luke Musgrave (ankle) and tackle Yosh Nijman (foot), all of whom are expected to play.

The Rams ruled out linebacker Ernest Jones (knee) and tight end Hunter Long (hamstring) and listed five questionable: quarterback Matthew Stafford (right thumb), tackle Rob Havenstein (calf), receiver Puka Nacua (knee), defensive tackle Larrell Murchison (knee) and cornerback Cobie Durant (shoulder).

Los Angeles head coach Sean McVay said before practice Friday that the Rams will take all the way up till game time to decide on the availability of Stafford and Havenstein after neither player practiced this week. Jones, who also didn't practice this week, leads LA with 75 tackles this season.

If Stafford can't go, the Rams would turn to backup Brett Rypien. The fourth-year veteran completed 5 of 10 passes for 42 yards in relief of Stafford during Sunday's 43-20 loss to Dallas.

Los Angeles didn't issue a game status for the following players who are all expected to be available: receiver Austin Trammell (hip), receiver Ben Skowronek (Achilles), punter Ethan Evans (ankle), defensive tackle Aaron Donald (veteran rest) and offensive lineman Brian Allen (veteran rest).

While a full participant in practice this week, Long is still on injured reserve with a designation to return.
