Safety Morgan Burnett’s 2013 debut wont come when the Packers face the Bengals on Sunday.
Coach Mike McCarthy announced Friday that Burnett has been ruled out for the third straight week. Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings will start at safety again for the Packers with Chris Banjo in reserve. Cornerback Casey Hayward remains out with a hamstring injury but cornerback Tramon Williams is probable to play.
The Packers also look likely to play without running back Eddie Lacy this weekend. He’s been listed as questionable after suffering a concussion against Washington last week, but wasn’t able to practice on Friday and remains in the league’s concussion protocol awaiting full clearance to return to action. He could get it between now and the game, but it is a good bet that James Starks will be the main man in the Packers backfield this weekend.
Running back John Kuhn is listed as doubtful, which makes it likely that the Pack will only have two running backs — Starks and rookie Johnathan Franklin — active for the game.
