The Green Bay Packers have one more game until their bye week, and they aren't taking any chances.

No players listed as questionable on the team's injury report this week will be active Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. That means receiver Davante Adams (ankle) and safety Morgan Burnett (calf) will be inactive. They'll have another week to rest during the bye before preparing for their trip to the Denver Broncos on Nov. 1.

Defensive tackle B.J. Raji, listed as doubtful entering Sunday, will also be inactive against the Chargers. The Packers will only have four defensive linemen available Sunday: Mike Daniels, Letroy Guion, Datone Jones and Mike Pennel. The Chicago Bears signed defensive lineman Bruce Gaston off the Packers' practice squad Saturday.

All together, the Packers' defense will be undermanned against one of the NFL's more talented quarterbacks in Philip Rivers. Outside linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder) also will be inactive today. With Raji, Perry and Burnett out, the Packers are missing a key piece at every level of their defense.

Here is the Packers' full inactive list for their game against the Chargers:

7 QB Brett Hundley
17 WR Davante Adams
42 S Morgan Burnett
46 RB Alonzo Harris
53 LB Nick Perry
65 G Lane Taylor
90 NT B.J. Raji
