The Green Bay Packers will host the Cincinnati Bengals at Lambeau field on Sunday, but possibly without at least six starters - and seven important players in total.

Of the 53 on the active roster, six starters were listed as doubtful, noted ESPN. Two more, receiver Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle), were questionable.

"The doubtful list reads like a who's who of key players: wide receiver Randall Cobb (chest), left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hip), cornerback Davon House (quad), outside linebacker Nick Perry (hand), linebacker Jake Ryan (hamstring, concussion) and top backup safety Kentrell Brice (groin).

"None of the seven stepped onto the practice field this week, but coach Mike McCarthy said he's holding out hope that some of those players can try to work on Saturday during the team's short practice. Among those who might have a chance is Cobb, who couldn't finish Sunday's loss at Atlanta after taking a hit to the shoulder and chest area," wrote ESPN. 

"He's getting better, just talking to the training staff before we came in here. He has a little hip in his step," McCarthy said at his Friday news conference. "I think that that group of guys that haven't practiced yet, we're going to give them the week. ... Hopefully, we're improving and really the practice lineup tomorrow will tell the story."

McCarthy said he would put Daniels in the same category as Cobb. Daniels injured his hip in practice last week and tried to play against the Falcons but dropped out during the first series.

"It's getting better," Daniels said Friday. "Taking it day by day and just really working to rehab it so I can get back out there."
