CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is inactive against the Green Bay Packers, leaving Cincinnati's secondary short-handed against Aaron Rodgers.

Kirkpatrick pulled a hamstring during a 20-10 win over Pittsburgh on Monday night. Cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones has an abdominal injury but was active Sunday despite being limited in practice. The Bengals signed free agent cornerback Curtis Marsh on Wednesday and promoted cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris off the practice squad.

The Packers are coming off a 38-20 win over Washington in which Rodgers threw for 480 yards.

Green Bay is missing running back Eddie Lacy, sidelined by a concussion last week. James Starks filled in for Lacy and had a career-high 132 yards against the Redskins. He's starting against the Bengals.
