When free safety Damontae Kazee (Achilles) and strong safety Jaylinn Hawkins (concussion) left the game, trusty special-teamer Sharrod Neasman and the scrappy Jamal Carter were pressed into service against the Green Bay Packers on Monday at Lambeau Field.

Carter was called up from the practice squad earlier in the day to provide depth at safety.

Neasman played 42 of 67 defensive snaps (67%) and Carter played 31 (49%) snaps. Keanu Neal (hamstring) and Ricardo Allen (elbow) are close to returning. Hawkins, who was playing a strong game, has to clear concussion protocols and Kazee likely is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles.

--Linebacker Foye Oluokun, who was coming back from a hamstring injury, played 61 snaps (97%) after missing last week’s game against the Bears.

--Cornerback Kendall Sheffield played all 63 snaps after missing the first three games with a foot injury.

--Left guards James Carpenter (37 plays, 53%) and rookie Matt Hennessy (33 plays, 47%) had a nearly even split.

--Wide receiver Julio Jones played only 15 plays (21%).
