GREEN BAY – The Packers have listed linebacker Preston Smith (oblique) and cornerback Kevin King (shoulder/back) as questionable for Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.

Tackle Dennis Kelly (back) is as doubtful, though he returned in a limited capacity on Wednesday. Kelly has sat out Green Bay’s last three games with an illness and the back injury.

Smith missed his first game in six-plus NFL seasons last Sunday against Washington, ending a streak of 102 consecutive regular-season games played. Both Smith and King were limited Wednesday.

The following Packers players who are expected to be available: tight end Josiah Deguara (finger), cornerback Rasul Douglas (shoulder), long snapper Hunter Bradley, and defensive linemen Dean Lowry (ankle) and Kenny Clark (ankle).

Clark and Lowry were both upgraded to full participation on Wednesday after being estimated as limited on Monday and Tuesday.

The Cardinals ruled out J.J. Watt (shoulder). Watt has 16 tackles and a sack in seven starts this season.

Receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring), tight end Darrell Daniels (hamstring), offensive lineman Max Garcia (Achilles) and defensive tackle Rashard Lawrence (calf) are all questionable. Hopkins did not practice this week.

The Cardinals didn’t issue a game status to the following players who are all expected to be available: outside linebacker Devon Kennard (shoulder), inside linebackers Isaiah Simmons (shoulder), Jordan Hicks (toe) and Tanner Vallejo (hand/wrist), and quarterback Kyler Murray (right finger).
