Detroit Lions running back David Montgomery and left tackle Taylor Decker are expected to play in Thursday's game against the host Green Bay Packers, NFL Network reported.

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee, hamstring) is not expected to play versus the Packers (2-1), per the report. All three players were listed as questionable on Wednesday for the showdown between the NFC North rivals.

NFL Network reported that Green Bay running back Aaron Jones and wide receiver Christian Watson are expected to play versus Detroit (2-1). Both players were listed as questionable on Wednesday with hamstring injuries, though Watson said he plans to make his season debut this week.

Montgomery, 26, sat out the Lions' 20-6 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday with a thigh injury. Rookie Jahmyr Gibbs rushed 17 times for 80 yards in his absence.

Montgomery has 37 carries for 141 yards and two touchdowns in two games this season.

Decker, 30, has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury.

Jones, 28, sustained his injury at the end of his 35-yard touchdown catch-and-run in Green Bay's 38-20 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sept. 10. He sat out the Packers' 25-24 loss to the Falcons the following week and 18-17 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Watson, 24, hasn't played this season due to a hamstring injury. He recorded 41 catches for 611 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games (11 starts) as a rookie in 2022.
