Packers without 3 offensive players vs. Lions

As the Packers head into this Sunday's playoff tuneup game against the Lions, they will be without three offensive players, and it's not certain who will start at quarterback.

Wide receivers Greg Jennings and Randall Cobb, as well as running back James Starks, have been ruled out.

Jennings has not played since Week 14, when he sustained a knee injury and left the field on a cart. The wideout was expected to miss two to three weeks, and could be back for the Packers' first playoff game.

Starks, the Packers' leading rusher with 578 yards, did not practice all week because of knee and ankle injuries, while Cobb was out of practice because of a groin injury.

All three will have an extra week to get healthy. Green Bay (14-1) has already secured the No. 1 seed in the NFC and has a bye into the second week of the postseason.

The Packers don't currently have to worry about the health of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, however. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that "the most important thing is he's ready to play."

But McCarthy didn't indicate who will start against Detroit, saying only that he'd like to see all three of the team's quarterbacks -- Rodgers, Matt Flynn and Graham Harrell -- see playing time.
