Guion (hamstring) is slated to start at nose tackle in place of B.J. Raji (biceps), Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Raji's torn biceps has opened the door for Guion, an offseason addition in free agency, to nab a starting gig. While defensive coordinator Dom Capers said that other players will help cover the void, the uptick in snaps should help Guion produce more than the 24.3 tackles that he averaged in the previous three seasons with the Vikings.

Guion (hamstring) was cleared to begin practicing Monday, ESPN reports.
Guion has missed the entirety of the Packers' preseason preparations thus far due to a pulled hamstring. Upon being signed from the Vikings' this offseason, Guion was expected to compete for the Packers' starting nose tackle position. While his injury certainly saw him lose ground in that race, B.J. Raji (biceps) being ruled out for the season has presented a new opportunity for Guion. As such, the veteran will aim to remain healthy and gear up quickly for Week 1, although Josh Boyd and Mike Pennel remain ahead of Guion on Green Bay's current depth chart.

Guion still hasn't been cleared to practice, as a hamstring injury continues to plague the defensive lineman. After signing from the Vikings this offseason, Guion is likely to miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season. When coupling Guion's sideline spell with B.J. Raji (bicep) being ruled out for the year, Mike Pennel should earn significant playing time at nose tackle.
