Best bets for 49ers-Packers

Will the Packers get back on track at home Monday night against the 49ers? Our Vegas experts weigh in.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Three Packers were fined for infractions last week at Detroit: Kevin King: $10,026 for unnecessary roughness/facemask Tony Brown: $10,026 for unsportsmanlike conduct/taunting Josh Jackson: $10,026 for unnecessary roughness/facemask Jackson was fined that sum for the second straight week. He said last week that he would appeal that one.

Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison are listed as questionable for Monday night. With Cobb and Allison, wonder if next week's bye makes the Packers keep them out.

Bryan Bulaga's issue is not with his right knee, the one in which he had the ACL tear last year. It's the left knee, and he did not sound concerned even though it kept him for the beginning of practice yesterday. “Just went out to practice and it got a little achy and just needed a little extra time to get it stretched out and warmed up … I got in for the last five or six periods of practice," the Packers starting right tackle said. As for his back injury from Week 3, he said: “I feel good. The back thing was just kind of an odd deal that happened in that first quarter of the game in Washington and once we got that to settle down, everything's been good since then.”

Hall of Famer Jim Taylor died Saturday at age 83, the Packers said. Taylor was the team's career rushing leading until Ahman Green broke the record in 2006. Taylor totaled 8,207 yards from 1958-66 and started at fullback on six of the seven Vince Lombardi's NFL championship teams.

Mike McCarthy is leaving the door open for WRs Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison (both with hamstring) to play Monday night vs. the 49ers but it's not a certainty by any means. He said he'll give them right up until Monday's pre-game workouts before inactives are due.

Mike McCarthy said he's not concerned about right tackle Bryan Bulaga's knee injury that limited him in practice yesterday. However, backup tackle Jason Spriggs (ankle) dropped out of practice and is still being evaluated.

The Packers rank fourth on defense in total yards allowed, but even coordinator Mike Pettine thinks that's deceiving. However, he said, "we feel good about where we're headed." He thinks there should be something akin to passer rating for QBs to better judge a total defense. For example, they didn't give up a lot of yards in the loss at Detroit because the offensive turnovers led to short fields.

Packers special teams coach Ron Zook on Mason Crosby after his five missed kicks last Sunday: "I'm not one bit worried about him." Zook said the only difference is Crosby is "a little bit more zoned in."

Bryan Bulaga did, in fact, practice on Friday but it was after the media viewing portion. He's listed with a knee injury. Fellow tackle Jason Spriggs dropped out with an ankle injury. Here's the full injury report:

Randall Cobb on his possible return Monday night against the 49ers after missing two games because of a hamstring injury: "Just hoping to continue to make progress. We'll see on Sunday what that means when we get there. It's a daily process for me right now."

Aaron Rodgers, presented for practice by Byron Bell. Rodgers appeared to have his knee brace on under his sweats.

Could the Packers have their top-three receivers on Monday night against the 49ers? Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison both were in pads after missing last week with hamstring injuries.

No sign of right tackle Bryan Bulaga with the offensive linemen at the start of practice. He wasn't on the injury report but has dealt with a back issue this season. He was the only player not at practice.

Mike McCarthy on Mason Crosby after his five-missed-kick disaster from last week: "Nah, he's the same. He's an example of what I'm looking for. You talk about hitting a bump in the hit, I mean he hit a boulder for God sakes. But he's the same guy. He's working at it, and you root for a guy like Mason because he exemplifies what a Green Bay Packer is. His work ethic and once again, he'll rely on his instincts and don't over evaluate, trust himself, trust the other two guys in the battery and he'll be back to normal."

Byron Bell will start at right guard again this week, coach Mike McCarthy said. Justin McCray had started the first four games until his shoulder injury caught up with him. McCray dressed as a backup last week.

The plan is for Aaron Rodgers to practice today, while Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will work in the rehab group again today. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Cobb and Allison did yesterday was part of the rehab drill.
