    06/15/16WRMarquess WilsonFoot Wilson, who re-fractured his left foot Tuesday, is out indefinitely.

    Per the report, Wilson -- who missed the last five games of the 2015 season after breaking the same foot -- will undergo surgery this coming Monday and is thus a candidate to open the season on the PUP list. With Wilson ailing, look for Eddie Royal, Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani, as well as Cameron Meredith, Daniel Braverman and Deonte Thompson to jostle for slotting on the Bears' wideout depth chart behind top options Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White.

    04/08/16DBOmar BoldenKnee The Bears and Bolden agreed to a contract Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The defections from head coach John Fox's previous employer, the Broncos, continue, as Bolden is the fourth such player to move from Denver to Chicago this offseason. In four seasons in the Mile-High City, Bolden served primarily on special teams, racking up 27 tackles in that domain while returning at least 13 kickoffs on three occasions. Expect him to serve in a similar capacity with the Bears.

    04/08/16LBPernell McPheeKnee McPhee (knee) will miss this week's minicamp, and head coach John Fox was noncommittal as to whether McPhee will be ready for training camp in July, reports Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune.

    McPhee had arthroscopic surgery on his knee shortly after the 2015 season, and was not expected to be at full speed until training camp, so this isn't shocking news. However, having the outside linebacker at full strength for the regular season will be vital to the Bears' pass rush, as McPhee recorded five sacks in the first seven games of 2015 before being slowed down by the knee injury.

    06/03/16TEJared CookFoot Cook underwent foot surgery earlier in the week and will miss the rest of the Packers' OTAs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Cook was brought in by the Packers during the offseason on a one-year contract to add depth at tight end alongside Richard Rodgers, but the team will have to remain patient while Cook heals from this recent foot surgery. The procedure was described as "preventative" to ensure a minor issue doesn't turn into something serious during the regular season. The team expects to have their 6-foot-5 tight end back for training camp, but they won't rush their newest offensive weapon as he'll be an important piece of the puzzle throughout 2016.

    05/18/16WRJordy NelsonKneePROBABLENelson (knee) won't participate in 11-on-11 activities until training camp, even though he said he would be able to play in a game if the Packers had one this weekend, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Nelson has participated throughout the Packers' offseason program, even catching passes from Aaron Rodgers on Thursday. The 31-year-old wideout might be a bit optimistic in his self-assessment, but it doesn't actually matter if he's game-ready, as Week 1 is still more than three months away. Given that he tore his ACL in August, it will come as no surprise if Nelson has a perfectly normal training camp. The Packers have improved depth in the receiving corps, after relying heavily on Nelson and Randall Cobb in 2014, and then turning to a slew of unreliable options for much of last season. Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Ty Montgomery (ankle) and Jared Abbrederis will compete for roles behind Nelson and Cobb, with Richard Rodgers and Jared Cook duking things out at tight end. Furthermore, the team has a pair of capable pass-catching backs in Eddie Lacy and James Starks, though neither is particularly adept at getting open.

    04/25/16WRTy MontgomeryAnkle Montgomery (ankle) is still sidelined at Packers' OTAs, but head coach Mike McCarthy has no "long-term concerns" with the injury, Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Montgomery was evidently a big part of Green Bay's 2015 plans before suffering a high ankle sprain in the second quarter of Week 6; the 2015 third-round selection recorded three starts at wide receiver and flashed electricity on kick returns. Montgomery was then relentless in returning to help his team make a playoff push, but ultimately re-aggravated his ankle before opting for surgery in December. Now, Montgomery has reportedly learned the importance of allowing his body to heal fully, and although he is reportedly pain-free and can do some running and cutting, there isn't even a guess as to when he may return.

    04/08/16LBSam BarringtonAnkle Barrington (ankle) has yet to receive medical clearance, the Packers' official site reports.

    With the help of seven starts in 14 appearances during the 2014 campaign, Barrington posted 53 tackles (40 solo) and one sack. He held stature as a starter next to Clay Matthews in Week 1 last season, but Barrington sustained a season-ending ankle injury 15 snaps into 2014, which held him out of the majority of on-field work during the offseason program. Once cleared, Barrington is expected to compete with the likes of rookie Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan at inside linebacker, with both spots up for grabs as Matthews returns to his long-time spot on the outside.

    04/08/16DBDemetri GoodsonSuspension Goodson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Goodson will be free to participate in all of the Packers' offseason and preseason preparations, but will be forced to miss the first quarter of the upcoming regular season. A depth cornerback that saw more playing time toward the end of last season, Goodson's absence will open the door for teammates to fill his role on defense and special teams.

    (Updated 04/08/2016)
    02/19/16DLMike PennelSuspension Pennel has been suspended four games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    An undrafted free agent in 2014, Pennel served behind B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion last season, notching one sack among 25 tackles. The Packers have already inked Guion to a three-year deal, and Raji may leave in free agency, leaving more snaps available to Pennel once he fulfills the suspension. However, the preceding is assuming Pennel even lands a spot on the eventual 53-man roster.
