Packers list RB Aaron Jones, WR Christian Watson, three others questionable for Sunday | Week 3 Injury Report

T David Bakhtiari, CB Jaire Alexander, LB Lukas Van Ness also questionable; G Elgton Jenkins ruled out against Saints


GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), receiver Christian Watson (hamstring), tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), linebacker Lukas Van Ness (elbow) and cornerback Jaire Alexander (back) all as questionable for Sunday's home opener against the New Orleans Saints.

Green Bay also has ruled out guard Elgton Jenkins (knee) and safety Zayne Anderson (hamstring) against the Saints. Jenkins didn't practice this week after leaving in the first half of Sunday's game in Atlanta. Anderson didn't practice on Thursday or Friday.

Alexander's injury is a new one added to the report after being a limited participant on Friday.

"His back was acting up a little bit, so we'll monitor that and we'll see where he's at," Head Coach Matt LaFleur said after practice Friday.

Jones returned to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity, his first on-field work since tweaking his hamstring at the end of his second touchdown against Chicago in Week 1. He was limited again Friday.

Watson was back at practice on Friday after a planned absence during Thursday's padded practice.

"We're just trying to be as smart as we can with it and go hard for two days and (not) take multiple steps back by doing too much," Watson said. "We're trying to do everything that I can to get something positive out of it and try not get as little negative out of it as possible."

Green Bay didn't give an injury designation for LB Rashan Gary (knee) and P Daniel Whelan (finger), both of whom are expected to play.

The Saints ruled out former Packers running back Jamaal Williams with a hamstring injury and listed tight end Foster Moreau (ankle) as doubtful. Cornerback Paulson Abedo (hamstring) and safety Ugo Amadi (knee) are questionable. Quarterback Taysom Hill (knee), safety Jordan Howden (finger) and running back Kendre Miller (hamstring) are expected to be available.
