Packers' 46-Man Roster Prediction for Week 9 vs. Bears

Here's our best guess at predicting the Green Bay Packers' game-day roster for Sunday's Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears. 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

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

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


  • Clay Matthews (thumb) and Jermichael Finley (neck) have been ruled out of the Monday Night Football game.
  • Nick Perry (foot) is listed and doubtful and based upon Mike McCarthy's comments that he's "not ready," he almost assuredly won't play.
  • James Jones (knee)  is listed as questionable, but he practiced in a limited fashion all week long. The best news was that he bounced back from practicing in pads on Friday to take part again on Saturday. The Packers usually play it safe with such players, but I just have a hunch he'll give it a go.
  • Sam Shields (toe) was added to injury report on Saturday after apparently being stepped on at practice, but McCarthy said holding him out of practice was merely precautionary.
  • Brad Jones (hamstring) is listed as probable and looks like he'll play for the first time in about a month.
  • Ryan Taylor (knee) is also probable, but the guess here is that the Packers will feel better about a fully healthy Jake Stoneburner for at least one more week.
  • C.J. Wilson has been active for the last couple games, but it may be his time to sit down once again.
  • If any of the predictions are wrong, Jerron McMillian, Chris Harper and Johnathan Franklin are all on the fence.

The more I look at this roster the more I realize how many damn good players we have.

If Bakhtari, Hyde, and Lacy were first round picks I'd very satisfied. The fact that neither are almost makes up for the Hadl trade.

The absolute worst trade in Packer history and among the worst in the history of the NFL.

LOL...I don't think ANYTHING will make up for the Hadl trade but it's a start! That trade crippled the Packers for the 70's.

And I would like to see Jones Hawk Neal and Lattimore on the field at the same time k? Thanks....

I'm having a hard time seeing why Lattimore's skill set would not translate to OLB. It is probably just a matter of reps.

Stroh's picture

Lattimore is too small for OLB. He's been working to get his weight up but he can't get over 240. He started w/ the Packers at 220 which is WAY to light for OLB. They gave time to put as much weight on as he could, but he hasn't been able to get over 240. Packers officially have him at 237. Besides that he doesn't seem to have the explosive 1st step to gain the edge in pass rush, nor the power to bull rush an OT, he does have very good overall athleticism tho. 34 OLB need to be about 250 minimum to hold up consistently. From what I've seen his skills fit better at ILB anyway. Props to the coaches for being able to take Lattimore and Jones and turn them into good ILB. Neither one was going to be starter quality OLB anyway.

They tried him at OLB for a year, and then moved him to MLB when OLB was still thin and MLB was overly deep (he's been 4th/5th string MLB). That might not mean they wouldn't put him back in a pinch, but it apparently meant they didn't think he was suited for OLB.

I'd like to see The Pack in a smash mouth run Football game racking up 300 yards of rushing and creaming Da Bums

I thik that we must give lattimore a chance to play some ol he will be ok.

I think Ryan Taylor will be playing and James Jones won't. I just think Jones will be waiting 1 more week to play. I don't think they want to risk further injury to Jones, so I think they will play it safe.

Nick Perry's picture

I'd hope McMillian is on the fence. Every time that dude is on the field bad things seem to happen. Long completions, missed tackles, and touchdowns. I know the kid is young but I'd much rather see a combination of Shields, Hayward, House, Williams, Burnett, and either Doc or Banjo, depending on the package. It will be interesting to see how the play the Bears TE. Hell, they did pretty well against Jordan Cameron of the Browns, just do it again!
