  PLAYER NOTES

WR Jordy Nelson was back at practice on Wednesday. Nelson left in the first quarter against Atlanta with a quadriceps injury.

RT Bryan Bulaga has missed the first two games with an ankle injury, but was back on the practice field Wednesday.

OLB Ahmad Brooks suffered a concussion in Week 1 and missed last week's game in Atlanta. Brooks was back at practice, though, on Wednesday.

LT David Bakhtiari sat out the loss in Atlanta with a hamstring injury and did not practice Wednesday.

WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday.

OLB Nick Perry sat out Wednesday's practice with an unknown injury.

FANTASIZING

Green Bay's Ty Montgomery has made an impressive switch from wide receiver to running back. Through two games, Montgomery has 203 total yards and three touchdowns. Montgomery could have a field day Sunday, as well. The Bengals are allowing 162.5 rushing yards per game, which ranks 31st in football. And with Montgomery getting more and more comfortable at his new position, he could erupt against a porous Bengals' run defense.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: WR Davante Adams is a rising star. After catching 75 passes for 997 yards last season, Adams is off to an even better start this year. Adams has 11 catches for 146 yards and one touchdown through two games. And when Nelson left the Falcons game with an injury, Adams stepped into the No. 1 role and finished with eight catches for 99 yards and a TD.



GAME PLAN:
The Packers should lean heavily on Montgomery and the ground game Sunday.

Not only do the Bengals rank 31st in rushing yards allowed per game, they also rank 22nd in yards per carry (4.2). If Green Bay is without some of its weapons in the passing game, pounding the Bengals on the ground might be its best path to victory.

MATCHUPS TO WATCH

Packers DBs vs. Bengals WR A.J. Green. One of the top wideouts in football, Green faces a Packers team that that it improved at cornerback after ranking 31st last season. But Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan shredded Green Bay last week. Green will try doing the same on Sunday.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy vs. Bengals HC Marvin Lewis. McCarthy defeated 30 of the 31 NFL teams during his 12 years in Green Bay. The only team McCarthy has yet to defeat is Cincinnati. Lewis holds a 2-0 record against McCarthy, including a 2009 win at Lambeau Field when the Bengals were 9-point underdogs.
