The Packers get there starting cornerbacks back in Week 11.

The Green Bay Packers will have starting cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Kevin King available on Sunday versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Alexander returns from a concussion that kept him out of last week’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, while King returns from a five-game absence due to a quad injury.

On the Packers’ final injury report for the week, both players don’t carry an injury designation which means they’ll be active on Sunday. Mike Pettine’s defense will need to put in a strong performance up against Philip Rivers and the Colts this week, so getting their top two cornerbacks back on the field is a huge boost.

Packers fans can also relax now when it comes to star wide receiver Davante Adams. Despite missing practice on Thursday, he returned in a limited fashion today and also doesn’t carry an injury designation. The Packers are clearly happy enough with his ankle injury that he’s OK to play this week.

Only two players on the injury report are considered unlikely to play or ruled out. Running back/returner Tyler Ervin will miss this week’s game as he deals with wrist and ribs injuries. Defensive tackle Montravius Adams is doubtful due to a toe injury.

Five players on the injury report are questionable. Cornerback Ka’dar Hollman (quadricep), wide receiver Allen Lazard (core), safety Will Redmond (shoulder), wide receiver Darrius Shepherd (shoulder), and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) are all questionable to play this week.

The other 10 players on the injury report, including Adams, Alexander, King, and star left tackle David Bakhtiari, are all good to go.

Many of the Packers’ most important players have been out with injuries at some point over the past month or so. Having them all available this week in a challenging matchup with the Colts is great news.
