Packers list four as questionable for Sunday night vs. Bears

GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed receiver Allen Lazard (ankle), and offensive linemen David Bakhtiari (knee), Elgton Jenkins (knee) and Jon Runyan (concussion) all questionable for Sunday’s home opener against the Chicago Bears.

Bakhtiari returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday after sitting out on Thursday. Head Coach Matt LaFleur said even when Bakhtiari returns to game action the plan will be for the five-time All-Pro to not practice three days in a row.

Jenkins was a full participant in Friday’s practice, while Lazard was limited.

Runyan returned to practice after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday. If Runyan doesn’t go, rookie Zach Tom could make his first career start against Chicago. The fourth-round pick out of Wake Forest played 30 snaps in relief of Runyan against the Vikings.

The Packers didn’t issue a game status for the following players who are all expected to play: center/guard Jake Hanson (shoulder), defensive back Keisean Nixon (shoulder), linebacker Quay Walker (shoulder) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest).

Receiver Velus Jones Jr. (hamstring) is doubtful for Chicago. Offensive lineman Riley Reiff (shoulder) and running back Khari Blasingame (personal) are expected to play.
