- Five players have been ruled out for Sunday's game: Clay Matthews (thumb), Brad Jones (hamstring), Casey Hayward (hamstring), James Starks (knee) and Greg Van Roten (ankle).
- The only player listed as questionable is Jarrett Bush (hamstring) and the prediction is that he'll play after practicing on Friday.
- Ryan Pickett, Andy Mulumba and Sam Barrington are all listed as probable and all should play.
- With five players ruled out, there's only two other players that must be inactive on game days. Rookie defensive lineman Josh Boyd has become one of the default players ruled out, but the last decision is the hardest one.
- C.J. Wilson has twice been a healthy scratch, but so has Brandon Bostick. The final decision probably comes down to those two players unless Bush is held out of the game due to his hamstring injury.
- First-year cornerback James Nixon will be making his NFL regular season debut if active as predicted.
