    08/29/16DBMorgan BurnettBackPROBABLEBurnett (back) returned to practice in full pads for the first time since the team's first preseason game, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Burnett injured his back during the team's first preseason matchup with Cleveland. The Packers began to pay more attention to Burnett's back as the ailment lingered, but with the 27-year-old back in full pads, it appears Green Bay expects Burnett to be ready for Week 1.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/28/16DBChris BanjoHamstringQUESTIONABLEBanjo sustained a hamstring injury during Friday's preseason win at San Francisco, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    An initial MRI revealed positive results, but the team's medical staff will examine Banjo further to determine the next course of action. A safety in name, he makes his dough in the special teams realm.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/28/16LBJay ElliottHamstringQUESTIONABLEElliott injured his hamstring in Friday's preseason victory at San Francisco, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Elliott's standing behind Clay Matthews on the Packers' unofficial depth chart puts him on an intriguing position in the event the NFL punishes the All-Pro for his mention in the Al-Jazeera documentary The Dark Side. No matter the severity of the hamstring issue, the Packers could very well exercise caution with Elliott in advance of the regular season.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16RBJohn CrockettShoulderQUESTIONABLECrockett left Friday's preseason game against the 49ers with a shoulder injury.

    Prior to his early exit, Crockett operated as the clear No. 3 running back, taking 13 carries for 46 yards while playing ahead of Brandon Burks and Brandon Ross. The 2015 UDFA should still have a spot on the team, but if he isn't ready for Week 1, the Packers will likely retain Burks or Ross on the final roster.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16DLLetroy GuionKneePROBABLEGuion will not play in Friday's matchup with the 49ers due to a knee injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

    It is unclear when Guion sustained this injury, but it is severe enough to keep him out of action Friday. The Packers are likely being cautious with their starting nose tackle. The 29-year-old started four games for the Packers in 2015, and recorded 12 tackles.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16QBBrett HundleyAnkleQUESTIONABLEHundley (ankle) is inactive for Friday's preseason matchup with the 49ers.

    Hundley will not play Friday after aggravating his ankle injury in last week's exhibition game with the Raiders. He remains on track to open the season as the Packers' backup quarterback, but his injury has prevented him from seeing much action this preseason. Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play Friday, but his action figures to be limited. Joe Callahan will likely be the next quarterback into Friday's game after Rodgers departs.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16WRJordy NelsonKneeQUESTIONABLENelson (knee) took part in 11-on-11 drills Monday for the first time since returning to practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Nelson returned to practice Aug. 20, and while he probably won't play in Green Bay's final preseason game, he seems to have cleared the last major hurdle at practice. Though expected to be ready for Week 1 in Jacksonville, the 31-year-old Nelson won't necessarily handle his usual massive snap count. He played more than 91 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps in both 2013 and 2014.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16DLKenny ClarkBackPROBABLEClark (back) described his injury as "tightness" and insists he'll be ready for the Packers' regular season opener, Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel reports.

    Clark injured his back during Tuesday's practice and was unable to participate in Friday's preseason matchup with the 49ers. However, he claims the injury is just tightness, so he expects to be healthy prior to the start of the regular season. The team will likely play it safe with their recent first-round draft pick and could hold him out of Thursday's preseason finale versus the Chiefs.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/23/16DLMike DanielsIllnessPROBABLEDaniels dealt with an illness at Tuesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

    Daniels is listed as the starting defensive tackle on the Packers' official depth chart. It remains to be seen exactly what illness Daniels is dealing with at the present time, so any speculation on the matter is trivial.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/22/16TEMitchell HenryFingerPROBABLEHenry (finger) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the 49ers,

    Henry suffered a broken finger in Week 2 of the preseason. It appears the injury is serious enough to keep him out of action Friday. He currently projects as the fifth tight end on the team's depth chart, so he figures to be a long shot to make the final roster.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/22/16WRJeff JanisHandOUTJanis (hand) is in full pads at Monday's practice, albeit with a club on his fractured right hand, Mike Spofford of packers.com reports.

    If Janis were a defensive lineman, he might already be able to play. As a wide receiver, he'll need the club removed before he can even think about logging a full practice, which is likely still at least a few days away. Janis is probably still doubtful for Week 1, as his mid-August surgery came with a recovery timetable of four-to-six weeks. Once healthy, he may have a shot to push Davante Adams and/or Jared Abbrederis for the third or fourth spots on the depth chart.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/18/16DBMicah HydeAchillesQUESTIONABLEHyde (hip) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.

    With 45 tackles and a pick in 10 games to date, Hyde has carved out some utility in deeper IDP formats, with his absence Thursday representing a hit to the Packers' Week 12 safety corps.

    (Updated 11/26/2015)
    08/18/16QBAaron RodgersRestPROBABLERodgers (rest) will play in Friday's Week 3 matchup against the 49ers, Bob Holtzman of ESPN reports.

    Rodgers has not played yet this preseason, as the Packers have opted to keep their star quarterback off the field in exhibition games. However, Rodgers will play Friday, but he is not expected to play more than one quarter. Head coach Mike McCarthey is likely looking to simply get Rodgers some game reps prior to the regular season.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/14/16LBJoe ThomasBackPROBABLEThomas (back) took part in Sunday's practice, Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports.

    Thomas is dealing with a lingering back injury that flared up last weekend. However, after missing the Browns' preseason tilt on Thursday, he was able to take part in team drills during Sunday's practice, though the team was not sporting full pads. Thomas could be held out of fully-padded practices for the foreseeable future, but he should be near full-health entering the regular season and set to bookend the left side of the Browns' offensive line come Week 1.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/09/16LBSam BarringtonAnklePROBABLEBarrington (ankle) recorded a solo tackle for loss in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders, his first game action since last September.

    Barrington needed almost a year to recover from the ankle injury that cut short his 2015 campaign, but with him suiting up and playing Thursday, he has made it all the way back. Barrington is competing with Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan for snaps at the two middle linebacker spots in the Packers' base defense.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/06/16DLDemetris AndersonAnklePROBABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    08/04/16LBJake RyanHamstringPROBABLERyan (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The Packers originally thought that Ryan's hamstring would only sideline him a few days, but after two weeks of rest, Ryan is finally all set. As a rookie last season, Ryan appeared in 14 games and accounted for 50 combined tackles. Coming into 2016, Green Bay has sought to expand Ryan's role within the linebacking corps. If the 24-year-old can remain on the field up until week 1, there is a strong chance that he earns a starting spot at inside linebacker.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    07/29/16DBDemetri GoodsonSuspensionSUSPENDGoodson 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)
    07/29/16DLMike PennelSuspensionSUSPENDPennel 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.

    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/29/16DLMike MartinKneeQUESTIONABLEMartin left practice on Friday due to a knee injury.

    The specifics of the injury have yet to be released but the injury will be monitored as training camp continues next week. Martin signed with the Eagles back in April.

    (Updated 08/05/2016)
    08/29/16RBWendell SmallwoodConcussionQUESTIONABLESmallwood is in the concussion protocol at this stage, philly.com reports.

    Smallwood suffered a concussion in Saturday's game against the Colts, thus making it unlikely that he'll be cleared in time for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets. At this stage, Smallwood slots in behind Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner in the Eagles' RB pecking order, as Week 1 quickly approaches.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/28/16DLVinny CurryKneeQUESTIONABLECurry didn't return to Saturday's preseason game in Indianapolis due to a knee injury.

    Penciled in as the starting right defensive end on the Eagles' unofficial depth chart, Curry's pass-rushing ability is needed in Philadelphia. A lengthy absence would place a damper on a unit that ranked 17th in the sack department during the 2015 season.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/28/16DLTaylor HartKneeQUESTIONABLEHart left Saturday night's preseason game with a sprained knee, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Hart, who was on the roster bubble entering preseason Week 3, was playing well Saturday with a couple of tackles and a quarterback hit.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/28/16TEChris PantaleHeadQUESTIONABLEPantale was removed from Saturday's preseason game at Indianapolis in order to undergo an evaluation for a head injury.

    Pantale was already in a precarious position in his quest to make the Eagles' 53-man roster, and a concussion could be the final nail in the coffin. Nevertheless, his status should be clarified by the Eagles in due time.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/20/16DBJalen MillsHamstringPROBABLEMills (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

    The Eagles seventh round selection this year has impressively worked his way up the team's depth chart. Many within the organization believe Mills could wind up playing a significant role this season behind the likes of Leodis McKelvin and Nolan Carroll.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/19/16DBBlake CountessHeadQUESTIONABLECountess left Thursday's matchup with the Steelers due to a head injury, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    It is unclear what type of head injury Countess is dealing with or if he is showing concussion like symptoms. The 23-year-old rookie is currently projected as the backup strong safety. Expect an update on his status when more information is made available.

    (Updated 08/18/2016)
    08/19/16DBAaron GrymesShoulderQUESTIONABLEGrymes (shoulder) injury has been identified as an AC joint sprain and could sideline him or the rest of the preseason, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

    Grymes left Thursday's game early with what was at the time an unknown injury. He was currently running with the third-team defense, and will look to resume that role when he returns. His absence leaves the Eagles with four cornerbacks currently sidelined, allowing Randall Evans, C.J. Smith, and Denzel Rice to see significantly more reps for the time being.

    (Updated 08/19/2016)
    08/13/16QBCarson WentzRibsQUESTIONABLEWentz (ribs) is still not 100 percent and will likely not play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

    Coach Doug Pederson revealed Monday that one of Wentz's injured ribs is still not healed, and the issue projects to keep him out for Thursday's game despite earlier reports that were more optimistic regarding his status. He'll likely head into the season No. 3 on the quarterback depth chart due to the injury, with Chase Daniel serving as Sam Bradford's primary backup for the time being.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/08/16LBMychal KendricksHamstringPROBABLEKendricks (hamstring) is expected to return to practice Saturday, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

    Kendricks sustained a hamstring injury during Monday's practice, forcing him off the field. Considering he was plagued by a similar issue last season, the Eagles will exercise caution and hold Kendricks out for a few days. He'll miss Thursday's preseason opener but his status for the regular season doesn't appear to be in any jeopardy.

    (Updated 08/09/2016)
    08/08/16WRJordan MatthewsKneeQUESTIONABLEMatthews (knee) will practice on Monday.

    The Eagles' premiere wideout has continuously reiterated that he will be ready for Week 1 after suffering a bone bruise in his left knee Aug. 5. While he takes the practice field again this week, don't expect him to suit up for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets as most the starters figure to sit out of the exhibition game.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/04/16WRMarcus JohnsonQuadricepsPROBABLEJohnson missed Monday's training camp session with an undisclosed injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Johnson is the only player the Eagles have lost to injury during training camp, but no timetable was provided for his return. When healthy, he will compete for what could very well be Philadelphia's last roster spot at wide receiver behind Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, Rueben Randle (gallbladder), Josh Huff and Chris Givens.

    (Updated 08/01/2016)
    04/25/16DBJaCorey ShepherdKneeQUESTIONABLEShepherd (knee) returned to practice Monday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    It has been a long road to recovery for the former 2015 draft pick. Although he hasn't been an active participant of practice in nearly a year, Shepherd will relied upon to perform well for an Eagles' secondary that has been dropping like flies as of late.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    04/08/16DBRon BrooksNeckPROBABLEBrooks (neck) will compete with Norman Carroll for the starting job opposite newly-acquired Leodis McKelvin, NJ.com reports.

    Brooks ended the 2015 campaign on IR after dealing with neck, shoulder and head injuries during the season. However, his main competition, Norman Carroll, is also coming off an injury-ravaged season as well. Fellow CB Eric Rowe also figures to be in on the competition, but offseason reviews suggest he isn't a realistic candidate to start. Conceivably, as both Brooks and Carroll enter training camp after an offseason of rehab, this competition could come down to the last man standing should either player suffer a setback.

    (Updated 07/13/2016)
    02/17/16DLBennie LoganCalfPROBABLELogan (calf) was placed on IR on Saturday, Philadelphia Inquirer writer Jeff McLane reports.

    Logan is a fine run-stopping interior lineman and his absence leaves Philadelphia a bit more vulnerable at the nose tackle position against the Giants.

    (Updated 01/02/2016)
    02/17/16KCody ParkeyGroinPROBABLEParkey (groin) appears to be behind Caleb Sturgis in the training camp battle for the Eagles' kicking job in 2016, Philly.com reports.

    After Parkey landed on injured reserve early into the 2015 campaign, Sturgis was solid in relief of the then-second year kicker. It's unclear whether Parkey's injury is still affecting his performance, but he has converted just 23 of 31 field goals thus far into training camp while Sturgis was true on 28 of 31, and has been noticeably short on his kickoffs compared to Sturgis. However, the competition is likely far from over, as the job will likely go to whomever performs most effectively during the preseason.
