GREEN BAY - The Packers defense isn't staring down the Saints to start this season like they were last year, but the 49ers are no pushovers.
They had the eighth best rushing attack in the NFL. Green Bay hopes their best guy at the point of the attack is ready to go Sunday.
The Packers practiced for the first time in the regular season Monday, they did so with defensive lineman B.J. Raji on the sideline.
He was hurt against the Chiefs. It's an ankle injury.
FOX 11's Justin Felder asked B.J. if he was confident he'd play Sunday. He didn't want to get into that, but he did say the ankle's feeling good.
"My ankle's feeling pretty good. Did some running out there, outside today, we're satisfied with what we saw. We're just moving along day by day," he said.
