GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed Quay Walker (groin) and cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Defensive lineman Kenny Clark (shoulder), safety Rudy Ford (calf), center Josh Myers (knee), tackle Yosh Nijman (back) and guard Jon Runyan (neck) are all questionable.

Walker sustained a groin injury during practice last week that sidelined him against Rams, but Head Coach Matt LaFleur said on Friday he has "no long-term concern" with the second-year linebacker. Alexander played all 58 snaps on Sunday but didn't practice this week.

Corey Ballentine and Robert Rochell could both be options at outside cornerback if Alexander cannot play. Rochell was signed off Carolina's practice squad last month, while Ballentine has seven tackles and a pass deflection on 80 defensive snaps this season.

"He's one of the best in the business. Anytime you don't have him, it doesn't necessarily help your team," said LaFleur of Alexander. "But we have confidence in the other guys. The other guys have been working hard and it's an opportunity for somebody else to step up and that's what we expect."

Neither Nijman nor Runyan practiced in pads on Wednesday but returned on Thursday. Myers was added to the injury report on Thursday but practiced on Friday.

The Packers didn't issue a game status for guard Elgton Jenkins (knee), running back Aaron Jones (hamstring), or receiver Christian Watson (back), all of whom are expected to play.

Pittsburgh ruled out safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (hamstring) and defensive lineman Montravius Adams (ankle). Defensive tackle Cameron Heyward (groin), linebacker Elandon Roberts (knee) and linebacker Nick Herbig (calf) are expected to be available.
