Jarrett Boykin ruled out for Thursday's game

The Green Bay Packers will be without receiver Jarrett Boykin for Thursday night's rivalry game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Boykin has a groin injury and was unable to recover in time on this short week. Filling in as the third receiver in Green Bay's offense will be rookie Davante Adams, who's shown glimpses of possibly taking this role even with Boykin healthy.

Adams only had two catches for 18 yards against Chicago but did have what would have been a deep touchdown reception called back due to a holding penalty.

Unlikely to play for the Packers are linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) and defensive lineman Josh Boyd (knee). Each defender is listed as doubtful.
