GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Green Bay also ruled out tackles David Bakhtiari (knee) and Billy Turner (knee), and tight end Dominique Dafney. Receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) is doubtful, while Malik Taylor is questionable (abdomen).

Both Valdes Scantling and Taylor were limited in practice all week, while St. Brown did not participate.

Running back Aaron Jones (illness/knee) and quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe) were not given a game status and are expected to both be available on Sunday. Jones returned to practice on Friday after missing Thursday's padded session with an illness.

"We feel great about him," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur of Jones after practice. "I talked to him earlier today. He had his usual smile on his face and he's feeling a lot better. He just had a little stomach bug and it's just a sign pf the times that we're in right now. It is the cold and flu season and, but he feels a lot better and we would anticipate him being at full strength on Sunday."

The absence of Bakhtiari and Turner likely means Yosh Nijman will make his sixth start at left tackle, while veteran Dennis Kelly could get his first start at right tackle. Kelly stepped in and played 42 snaps for an injured Turner last Sunday against Chicago.

Rodgers (toe) will start once again despite not practicing this week, according to LaFleur.

"He did not do anything today other than our walkthrough prior to practice, but as far as him playing in the game, we don't have any concerns," LaFleur said. "Certainly, you'd love to have him get those live reps just for the timing purposes. But again, is it what it is. We'll make the best of it and there's no doubt in my mind he'll be ready to go."

Punter Corey Bojorquez (left knee), and tight end Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest) also didn't receive a game status and are expected to be available.

The Ravens have listed quarterback Lamar Jackson (ankle) among eight players who are questionable for the Ravens. Jackson didn't practice this week. If Jackson can't play Sunday, Baltimore would turn to second-year quarterback Tyler Huntley.

The other seven questionable Ravens players include: tight end Nick Boyle (knee), receiver Marquise Brown (illness), guard/center Patrick Mekari (hand), guard Tyre Phillips (illness), fullback/defensive lineman Patrick Ricard (back/knee), cornerback Chris Westry (knee) and tackle Alejandro Villanueva (knee).

Defensive tackle Calais Campbell (thigh) is doubtful after not practicing this week. Guard Ben Powers (foot) has been ruled out.

The Ravens didn't issue a game status for the following players who are expected to be available: receivers Miles Boykin (finger), Tylan Wallace (concussion), and Sammy Watkins (knee).
