GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Receiver Jarrett Boykin will miss the Green Bay Packers' game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night with a groin injury.

Boykin hasn't practiced this week. He also missed Sunday's 38-17 win over the Chicago Bears.

The absence of Boykin should mean more opportunities for rookies Davante Adams and Jeff Janis in the Packers' three-receiver sets. Green Bay opened last week against the Bears with two tight ends and two receivers.

Defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee) and backup linebacker and special teamer Sam Barrington (hamstring) are also doubtful for Green Bay.

Linebacker Clay Matthews is probable with a groin injury. He has been a full participant all week at practice. Mike Neal (hip) is also probable, though he missed Wednesday's practice.
