The Green Bay Packers will apparently have the services of pass rusher Za'Darius Smith for tonight's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Smith was listed as questionable and was limited in practice this week due to knee injury. However, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Smith will be on the field tonight.

The Packers and Eagles will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NFL Network and FOX.

Smith is one of the Packers' key offseason acquisitions, and he's helped revamp the team's defense. Through three weeks, the Packers' defense has been one of the elite units in the NFL. Smith is second on the team with three sacks, trailing only Preston Smith, who has 4.5. He is also tied for fourth in the league in quarterback pressures.

The Packers have already ruled out defensive lineman Montravius Adams (shoulder) and linebacker Oren Burks (chest) for tonight's game.
