GREEN BAY – Green Bay CB Jaire Alexander (hand) has been added to the injury report but his game status is unchanged for Sunday's game against Detroit.

On Friday, the Packers listed tight end Josiah Deguara (shin/ankle) and guard/tackle Billy Turner as questionable.

The rookie third-round pick, in his first NFL start, caught a pass for 12 yards and set several key blocks during Sunday's 43-34 win over Minnesota. He was limited in Wednesday's practice and didn't participate on either Thursday or Friday.

"He banged it up in the game," said Head Coach Matt LaFleur on Friday afternoon. "And then he was working through it and might have tweaked it a little bit there in practice."

Turner, who sat out of last Sunday's opener, was a full participant in Thursday's padded practice and limited Friday. The seventh-year veteran started all 18 games (including playoffs) at right guard for the Packers in 2019, leading the offensive line with 1,076 regular-season snaps played.

The Packers have ruled out defensive tackle Kenny Clark (groin), receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), linebacker Randy Ramsey (groin), and guard Lane Taylor (knee).

LaFleur confirmed after practice that Clark wouldn't play after suffering a groin injury on Sunday and not practicing this week.

Defensive tackle Montravius Adams (toe), safety Raven Greene (quadriceps) and Lucas Patrick (shoulder) also are questionable. Patrick was a full participant on Thursday and Friday after leaving the Vikings game Sunday.

Linebacker Oren Burks (groin), guards Elgton Jenkins (ankle), and tight end Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest) were removed from the injury report and are expected to play Sunday.

Detroit ruled out receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring), cornerback Desmond Trufant (hamstring), left guard Joe Dahl (groin) and tight end Hunter Bryant (hamstring).

Four Lions have been listed as questionable: safety C.J. Moore (hamstring), cornerback Darryl Roberts (calf), right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot) and defensive tackle Nick Williams (shoulder).

Rookie first-round pick Jeff Okudah (hamstring) and linebacker/fullback Jason Cabinda (ankle) were removed from the injury report and are expected to play.
