GREEN BAY – The Packers have added safety Darnell Savage (groin) to the injury report and listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Receivers Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion/knee) and Malik Taylor (hamstring) are also questionable. Tight end Jace Sternberger (concussion) and Simon Stepaniak (knee) have been ruled out.

Savage was a full participant in practice this week before being listed as limited Friday. The second-year safety has three interceptions the past two games.

St. Brown, who sat out Wednesday, returned Thursday in a limited capacity before being updated to full participation on Friday. Taylor was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn't participate in Friday's practice.

The Packers have removed 10 players from the injury report who are expected to be available: cornerbacks Jaire Alexander (knee/hand) and Kevin King (Achilles/groin), linebacker Krys Barnes (calf), receiver Allen Lazard (core), tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee), guard Lucas Patrick (toe), punter JK Scott (right quadricep), safety Vernon Scott (quadricep), linebacker Za'Darius Smith (ankle) and tackle Rick Wagner (knee).

The Lions have ruled out receiver Kenny Golladay (hip), cornerback Jeff Okudah (groin) and offensive lineman Tyrell Crosby (ankle).

Six others have been listed as questionable: quarterback Matthew Stafford (right thumb), running back D'Andre Swift (illness), defensive tackle John Penisini (shoulder), safety C.J. More (ankle), and defensive linemen Da'Shawn Hand (groin) and Austin Bryant (thigh).

Running back Kerryon Johnson (knee) and defensive end Everson Griffen (not injury related) were not given a game-day designation and are expected to be available.
