Packers add P Scott (illness) to injury report

The Green Bay Packers added punter JK Scott to the injury report for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers due to an illness.

Scott and fullback Danny Vitale (knee) are the only two Packers listed as questionable.

A fifth-round draft pick in 2018, the 23-year-old Scott averaged 44.0 yards on 77 punts in 2019. He tied for ninth in the NFL with 29 punts downed inside the 20.

It was not immediately clear who would handle the punting duties if Scott is unavailable.

Green Bay removed wide receivers Allen Lazard (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (illness) from the injury report, along with linebackers Preston Smith (ankle) and Blake Martinez (hand), safety Adrian Amos (chest), defensive lineman Kenny Clark (back) and offensive lineman Billy Turner (ankle).
