Packers 46-Man Roster Prediction for Wildcard Game vs. 49ers

Here's our best guess at predicting the Green Bay Packers' game-day roster for Sunday's wildcard round matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Reminder, only 46 players can be active...

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

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers, Scott Tolzien, Matt Flynn

Running back: Eddie Lacy, John Kuhn, James Starks, Khalil Bell

Wide receiver: Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Jarrett Boykin, Chris Harper

Tight end: Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor, Jake Stoneburner

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

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

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

Inside linebacker: A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Victor Aiyewa

Cornerback: Tramon Williams, Sam Shields, Micah Hyde, Davon House, Jarrett Bush, Jumal Rolle

Safety: Morgan Burnett, M.D. Jennings, Chris Banjo, Sean Richardson

Special teams: Mason Crosby, Tim Masthay, Brett Goode


  • Only Clay Matthews (thumb) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.
  • There's concern with so many linebackers listed on the team's injury report, but all are listed as probable and predicted to play: Mike Neal (abdomen), Nick Perry (foot) and Brad Jones (ankle).
  • Running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) and defensive lineman Ryan Pickett (knee) are also listed as probable and will more than likely play.
  • One week after coming back from long layoffs, neither Aaron Rodgers nor Randall Cobb were listed on the Packers injury report. They appear to have no limitations.
  • Third-string quarterback Scott Tolzien was active last week as an emergency, the first week Rodgers was back, but it's hard to see him active once again, unless they put Jake Stoneburner on the inactive list instead.
  • Last week, the Packers had Jerel Worthy active ahead of C.J. Wilson on the defensive line, but it seems likely the opposite would be the case this week as the Packers would want the better run-stuffer against the 49ers.

Yeah, I would agree with you Brian.

I am really curious with the CJ Wilson move. Bears have a good rushing attack and the Packers still played Worthy ahead of Wilson.

It feels like to me they have really fallen out of favor of Wilson for whatever reason. He seems to be a good run stopper.

Something is telling me that Worthy will be playing ahead of Wilson again.

Bears have a good rushing attack, yeah, but their passing attack is leaps and bounds ahead of SF's.

I think stopping the run will be a priority this week. Hopefully the combo of Burnett/Richardson can stop the pass better than Jennings/McMillian did in week 1.

RC Packer Fan's picture

Yeah, I agree that Bears have a better passing game. But the 49ers are no slouches either. They have Boldin, Crabtree and Vernon Davis.

I agree. Stopping the run is the top priority. Especially with the weather.

Wilson isn't much worth giving playing time to IMO. Just kinda takes up space, he never makes any plays. At least Worthy has some explosiveness and quickness in his game. Rather see Worthy playing than Wilson.

RC Packer Fan's picture

Yeah, That's why I'm thinking that Worthy will be playing ahead of Wilson.

Worthy has quickness. He has to learn what to do after he explodes off the ball, but he definitely has quickness that a lot of the other DL don't have.

Gotta say that as much as Wilson is JAG, and Worthy has much more god-given ability and upside, Wilson has at least made a few run stuffs in his limited playing time. Granted, Worthy has been out for a year and likely not back to himself, but before the injury and since, Worthy has been invisible...taking up space as you say.

Not to say Worthy can't be a guy that eventually puts it together (and recovers fully from the knee), but to this point he's done little to impress.

If the Pack wins can we all agree to finally ban Cow from this place? I never thought one troll could single-handedly bring down an entire site.

cLowNEY42's picture

Or maybe I've just motivated all of you to be better.

Are we really gonna have a debate regarding Wilson vs Worthy?
Who cares? They're both useless.

Here's a list of defensive players you'll need to check the post game box score for to see if they actually got any snaps (because they'll essentially be invisible)...

D. Jones
B. Jones

Notice I didn't add MD Jennings... that's because you'll definitely be able to tell when he's on the field (he'll be the guy 5 yards behind the 49er WR/TE running with the ball).

God bless you, Dom.
I do not envy your Monday.
I actually feel sorry for you.
It's sorta like TT gave you a toothbrush, 3 rubber bands, and a slinky and said "Go build a space station."

MacGyver could with 2 Paper clips and a toothpick.

cLowNEY42's picture

MacGyver for DC!!!!!!!

I support the banning, but he is not an honorable person and would just come back anyway, spouting his negative drivel.

An Ignore function or comment voting would be more elegant solutions to the troll42 issue.

ZeroTolerance's picture

Worthy only played 2 or 3 snaps vs. the Bears.

Fiscr's picture

He's not disrespectful. Just a child that doesn't want to get hurt if his beloved Packers lose. I was like that when I was thirteen. Now you want to talk about no chances to win... The fact that he still tries to protect his poor little heart by ragging on a good team is a bit sad, but hardly worth banning the child.

4thand1's picture

He loves the attention. I won't read another post of his or respond, I'm done.

Jamie's picture

These aren't his Packers. He admitted he was nothing but a troll toward the end of the '12 season.

The site administrators are either cowards, too lazy, or don't care...otherwise the POS would have been IP banned a long time ago.

RunAndHyde's picture

Neal is slowly getting better. Let's hope he n Perry can hold down the fort without Clay.

SOL's picture

Both were listed on Friday as DNP. Let's hope it was just a rest not a relapse.

TommyG's picture

I read that Gilbert brown and Nick Collins will be part of the pregame events. Maybe they would be willing to suit up one more time???

al's picture

D Sherrod is back this guy was best player at position ? he is on the 46 man can he play ? anybody no if hes ready ?

The TKstinator's picture

Oh, he's ready all right.

The TKstinator's picture

Uh oh.
I just saw that the 49ers have Ric Flair on their side.
I hope Dom is prepared to defend against the dreaded "chair shot".

WKUPackFan's picture

MM should have brought Jerry "The King" Lawler in to counter Flair, but there's no doubt that Flair was the best interview in wresting ever.

RunAndHyde's picture

It's game day boysssssss! I can't sleep anymore! Aaron Kaep what a Superbowl MVP qb looks like! Go pack go!

WKUPackFan's picture

Can't sleep, can't eat, too nervous. It's time to take the 9ers down, no repeat of the 90s Dallas situation. Time to wash away the stain of home playoff losses. Just win, any way the Pack can, don't care if it's pretty or dominating, just win.

Plus, I want another few weeks of back and forth with you gentlemen and ladies. Heck, I might even miss cLowNEY.

cLowNEY42's picture

I'm not nervous at all.
I only get nervous for Packer games when I'm unsure of what the outcome's gonna be.

WKUPackFan's picture

I really don't believe you, but maybe I won't miss you after all! Still consider you a Packer brother anyway.

Stroh's picture

HIGHLY debatable that he's a Packer Fan! More like HIGHLY UNLIKELY actually!

4thand1's picture

OL Anthony Davis called the city of GB a shithole. Bulletin board material.

cLowNEY42's picture

Because I'm sure every Packer player LOVES Green Bay.

Stroh's picture

Woodson hated it at first. Now Loves GB! For People that have never been there, its easy to criticize but once you've been there they love it.

What do you care anyway your just a troll starting arguments and spewing negative comments!
