GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Evan Dietrich-Smith could start at center on Sunday, when the Green Bay Packers host Tennessee.

Coach Mike McCarthy said after Friday morning’s practice that normal starter Jeff Saturday will be ready, despite having neck and shoulder problems. But the coach is not certain whether Saturday will start against the Titans. He’s officially listed as probable for the game.

If the Packers win, they’ll secure the Number 3 playoff seed in the NFC.

Guard T.J. Lang is also probable, and was cleared to play after passing a concussion test Friday morning. Running back Alex Green, who’s also getting over a concussion, has not passed his required tests yet. He’s listed as questionable, which means he has a 50-50 chance of playing.

Defensive end Jerel Worthy is also questionable with a hamstring injury, and back-up guard Greg Van Roten is questionable with back trouble.

Receiver Jordy Nelson is again out with a bad hamstring. Also out are tight end Tom Crabtree, running back James Starks, defensive end C.J. Wilson, and defensive back Charles Woodson.

Receiver Randall Cobb is probable with a shoulder issue. He was a full participant at practice Friday, after being limited the previous two days.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is also probable, along with linebacker Erik Walden. Rodgers tweaked an ankle last Sunday, but he says he’s okay.

Fullback John Kuhn also missed practice due to personal traveling issues.
