Five Chiefs will not dress for Thursday night’s game against Green Bay. OLB
The Packers are resting a considerable amount of starters.
Earlier this week, Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy indicated that his starters would play one series in tonight’s contest. That statement might still hold true, but QB Aaron Rodgers, RB Ryan Grant, LT Chad Clifton, RDE Cullen Jenkins, LOLB Clay Matthews, ROLB Brad Jones and LCB Charles Woodson won’t be part of that list.
Expected replacements for those players include QB Matt Flynn for Rodgers, RB Brandon Jackson for Grant, T T.J. Lang for Clifton, DE Mike Neal for Jenkins, LB Brady Poppinga for Matthews, OLB Frank Zombo for Jones and CB Sam Shields for Woodson.
Other players held out for Green Bay include OL Bryan Bulaga, OL Allen Barbre, LB Desmond Bishop, CB Brandon Underwood and S Wil Blackmon.
