Janis (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.
Banjo 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.
Elliott 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.
Guion 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.
Hundley (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.
Nelson (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.
Clark (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.
Henry (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.
Thomas (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.
Barrington (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.
Ryan (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.
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.
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.
Clayborn (shoulder) is expected back for Week 1, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Clayborn was scheduled for an MRI on Friday, after injuring his shoulder during Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins. He's expected to start at left defensive end, but he may lose a lot of snaps to Brooks Reed and/or Dwight Freeney.
Hardy suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins and will not return to the game.
The Falcons would rather be safe than sorry as they give the wideout the rest of the night off. Hardy will join Julio Jones on the sidelines for the remainder of the game, who also suffered some sort of ankle injury on Thursday night. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but expect more clarity on the matter once the team releases information in the next couple of days.
Head coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Jones (ankle) will return to practice either Wednesday or next Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Jones said he would have kept playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins if it had been a regular-season contest. There's been no cause to doubt his downplaying of the injury, as the Falcons have confirmed that they expect him back in short order. Even if he does return Wednesday, the veteran wideout won't play in Thursday's preseason finale. It sounds as if he'll get in a full week of practice in preparation for Week 1 against the Bucs.
Neal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.
Bryant (undisclosed) did not practice Monday due to muscle tightness, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
Bryant was held out of Thursday's preseason game due to an undisclosed injury and has now missed the team's past two practices. It's unclear if the muscle tightness spurred the absence, and he's currently without a timetable for return.
Freeney (back) returned to practice on Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Freeney has been dealing with a back strain throughout the preseason, which kept him off the field for Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins. While he did return to practice, it seems unlikely the coaching will risk the chance of the injury becoming worse and will keep the veteran on the sidelines for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jaguars.
Beasley has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, but he's still expected to play in Atlanta's third preseason game, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Beasley missed Thursday's preseason game against the Browns, and while he may end up sitting out another exhibition, this doesn't sound like a threat to his Week 1 availability. Selected eighth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, Beasley had just 20 tackles and four sacks while working in a part-time role as a rookie. He's expected to start and take on a considerable snap count this season, working as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end, with his role mostly focused on getting after the quarterback.
Ishmael (shoulder) took part in 11-on-11 drills Monday for the first time since injuring his shoulder, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.
Ishmael hadn't practiced in full since injuring his shoulder in the Falcons' preseason opener. His return is an encouraging sign for the safety, who's expected to start for Atlanta after playing rotationally in 2015.
Ward (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.
Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.
Collins tallied 17 total tackles in 16 games during his rookie year with the Falcons.
Collins was limited to rotational work, only seeing the field on 28.6 percent of the total defensive snaps. He'll likely earn more playing time in the coming years, but the Falcons have a pretty young core of secondary players, meaning it won't be easy for Collins to ascend the ranks.
Reed was limited to 17 tackles in 13 games with the Falcons in 2015.
Reed failed to record a sack for the first time in his career, and he only played in 32.9 percent of the defensive snaps. He has four years remaining on his contract, so Dan Quinn will need to find new ways to get production out of Reed in 2016.
