Rush has missed the previous six games with a sprained toe. If he can play, it is unclear if the team will opt to ease him back into action. Shabazz Muhammad is also questionble, so Rush could be needed for some extra minutes if he cannot go.
Green was limited to 15 minutes during Monday's game against the Heat for precautionary reasons after being kneed near the groin area in the first half, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Green indicated after Monday's game that he'll likely play Wednesday against Sacramento, although it's certainly possible that coach Gregg Popovich will err on the side of caution and allow Green to rest Wednesday, even though the injury isn't believed to be overly serious. If Green sits, Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons will be in line for added minutes.
Williams impressed on the field as a rookie in 2015, spelling the Bills' LeSean McCoy to the tune of 517 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground in 11 games. Furthermore, Williams displayed some pass-catching acumen with 11 catches (on 14 targets) for 96 yards and two touchdowns. However, his first full offseason didn't go as swimmingly, as he showed up to spring workouts significantly overweight before he was handed a four-game ban for a violation of the substance abuse policy. After landing on the non-football illness list at the outset of training camp, he made a brief foray in drills after passing a physical but was cut loose a short time later on Aug. 20. Eventually landing on the Steelers' practice squad on Oct. 12, Williams was tabbed with a lengthier suspension in late November for another violation of the policy on substances of abuse. Although his career seemed to be hanging on by a thread entering the offseason, Thursday's development could be the jump start he requires to find his way in the NFL.
Strome had been a whipping boy under Jack Capuano and it doesn't look like much has changed with new coach Doug Weight. Since scoring 50 points in 2014-15, Strome has been a disappointment and only has 14 points in 42 games this season. He was benched for poor defensive play and could end up a healthy scratch when one or two of the team's injured forwards are ready to return.
Goodley signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Monday, ESPN reports.
Goodley is a second-year player out of Baylor who finished the season on the Packers' practice squad. He's yet to record a catch in the NFL and likely won't compete for anything more than a depth receiver role this summer.
