They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad). The healthy inactives are offensive lineman Ryan Wendell, defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, linebacker Rufus Johnson and cornerback Justin Coleman.
The Packers have placed the following players on the injured reserve list Saturday: Tackle Aaron Adams, linebacker Nate Palmer, tight end Jake Stoneburner and defensive tackle Khyri Thornton.
Packers defensive tackle Khyri Thornton was forced out of Thursday's exhibition finale against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game, leaving his status uncertain for the season opener.
