RB Aaron Jones (hamstring): The Packers’ star running back did not practice all week, possibly in an attempt to make sure his hamstring is in the best shape possible before a final test on Sunday. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Packers kept him out to make sure he’s 100 percent for the rest of the year. AJ Dillon could get the majority of the touches at running back in Atlanta if Jones doesn’t play. Expect the Packers to elevate Patrick Taylor from the practice squad on Saturday.
LT David Bakhtiari (knee): While Bakhtiari did not have injury status in Week 1, he is questionable this week. Could he be related to the playing surface in Atlanta? The grass at Mercedes Benz Stadium is the same as MetLife Stadium. Rasheed Walker would be his backup if he can’t go.
WR Christian Watson (hamstring): The speedy receiver had a limited practice on Friday. Is he close to 100 percent and capable of playing on Sunday, or is he still a week away? His return to practice is encouraging.
LB Quay Walker (concussion): The second-year linebacker remains in the protocol, but progress throughout the week keeps the door open for him to play on Sunday. You will have two days to overcome the final stages of the protocol. Isaiah McDuffie is his backup.
