Packers' 46-Man Roster Prediction for Week 7 vs. Browns

Packers' 46-Man Roster Prediction for Week 7 vs. Browns

Here's our best guess at predicting the Green Bay Packers' game-day roster for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Cleveland Browns. Reminder, only 46 players can be active...

The entire roster is included. Those bold and italicized are predicted to be inactive...

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, Seneca Wallace

Running back: Eddie Lacy, John Kuhn, James Starks, Johnathan Franklin, Michael Hill

Wide receiver: Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jarrett Boykin, Myles White

Tight end: Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor, Brandon Bostick, Jake Stoneburner

Offensive line: David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, Evan Dietrich-Smith, T.J. Lang, Don Barclay, Marshall Newhouse, Lane Taylor

Defensive line: Datone Jones, B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, C.J. Wilson, Johnny Jolly, Mike Daniels, Josh Boyd

Outside linebacker: Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Mike Neal, Nate Palmer, Andy Mulumba

Inside linebacker: A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Sam Barrington

Cornerback: Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, Micah Hyde, Davon House, Jarrett Bush, James Nixon

Safety: Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian, Chris Banjo

Special teams: Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode

Commentary:

  • Take this prediction with a grain of salt. With such an extensive injury list, the Packers are in danger of not being able to field the maximum 46 players on game day, a situation Mike McCarthy can never recall having. It's possible the Packers suit up less than 46 or suit up 46 but having a player not play.
  • Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Brad Jones, James Starks and Ryan Taylor have all been ruled out this week, meaning it's guaranteed they won't play.
  • James Jones, Mike Neal, Casey Hayward and Jarrett Bush are all questionable for Sunday's game, and the status for all four of them is up in the air. Mike McCarthy was quick to mention in his Friday press conference that there was still more than 50 hours until Sunday's game, giving them time for additional recovery and a possible opportunity to play.
  • Of the four players listed as questionable, Hayward seems the most likely to play based upon McCarthy not placing him in the same category as Jones, Neal and Bush.
  • We have Bush listed as active, but it's certainly possible the Packers don't dress all 46, or he'll suit up but not play. Jones or Neal could be in this same boat.
  • With so many injuries, rookies Myles White, Jake Stoneburner and Josh Boyd all figure to be active for the first regular-season game of their careers.

Should be an easy week - Can you walk? Great, you're active.

Even if James Jones can only go 5-10 plays, I'd still like to see him out there to possibly draw some coverage/attention that Boykin or White won't get, hopefully to free up Nelson and Finley from double teams.

Not at the risk of aggravating his injury/re-injury.

It looks like Bush is listed as Probable not Questionable

I don't think its much of a prediction this week.
The biggest question is will we have 46 actually suiting up Sunday to play?

Id love to see Bostik..Stoneburner...and or White get a couple catches. Get some confidence up and change Clevelands D a little. How good is AR? We will see Sunday with his Patriot-like options....

First offensive play for the Packers. Play Action 80 yard TD to Myles White. :)

That would be pretty cool to see.

I agree. I think Bostick and White for sure will each have a couple of receptions. I think they will use Bostick a quite a bit. I expect to see a lot of 2 and 3 TE sets.

Random question - I had thought that Cobb was the emergency QB. If QB1 and QB2 get hurt in the same game, who goes in now?

Nelson was prior to Cobb.

I bet Micah Hyde could play QB

Hyde also reminds me a bit of Russell Wilson-those shortstop type athletes that just get it.

Evan's picture

Can he throw it to himself?

I used to get so excited with Green Bay would pull out victories with such a banged up squad. "Just think how strong we'll be when we're healthy"

Sometime around last year I realized that a healthy packer squad is a sick and twisted pipe dream.

When Burnett and Hayward were out at the bye, I said "this is almost certainly the healthiest we'll be all season". I felt very confident about that. I didn't know it would get this ugly this fast though.

Wow! I was confident that GB would beat Cleveland, but this list has shaken me. 3 WRs, #1 and #4, and a PS guy (who I like at least). 3 RBs, one of whom should not carry the ball from scrimmage anymore. Barrington being the only back-up LB. If an OLB goes down, would Barrington replace him, or would Hawk/Lattimore shift from ILB to OLB? I suppose Lattimore would shift outside and Barrington would replace Lattimore at ILB, but IDK. I hope GB can get thru next few games.
