    08/15/16LBStephone AnthonyLegQUESTIONABLEAnthony (leg) returned to practice on Monday, NOLA.com reports.

    Anthony was carted off the field with an unspecified leg injury during the Saints' preseason opener against New England. However, New Orleans evidently dodged a bullet as he logged a full practice Monday and appeared to be moving without limitations throughout team drills. Now proven healthy, he'll resume his entrance into the regular season as Rotowire's 26th-ranked IDP prospect.

    08/15/16DLSheldon RankinsLegOUTRankins, who was carted off during Monday's practice, will have surgery to repair a fractured fibula and is expected to miss six weeks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

    Rankins' injury is a tough blow to the Saints' defense, which aded him with the 12th overall pick in this year's draft to beef up its front line. Furthermore, the Louisville product was impressive to this point in camp, even intercepting Tom Brady during joint practices with the Patriots last week. With Rankins now sidelined going into the regular season, Nick Fairley, John Jenkins and fellow rookie David Onyemata should see more reps at defensive tackle.

    07/31/16WRVincent BrownUndisclosedNFIThe Saints released Brown (calf) with an injury settlement Thursday, removing him from injured reserve, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Brown joined the Saints in May, adding a veteran presence to a receiving corps lacking in experience. However, he failed his pre-training camp physical due to a strained calf, which will bring his brief tenure in New Orleans to a close. The severity of the injury will likely determine when he receives a chance with another organization.

    Green Bay Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/18/16WRJordy NelsonKneePROBABLENelson (knee) is inactive for Friday's preseason matchup with the 49ers.

    Nelson resumed practicing earlier this week, but he is not ready for game action just yet. With just one preseason game remaining, it's looking likely that Nelson will not play at all during the exhibition season. Both he and the Packers have indicated Nelson will be ready to go by Week 1, but his snaps could be limited a bit early on as he gets himself back into game shape.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/15/16WRJeff JanisHandQUESTIONABLEJanis (hand) had surgery on his fractured hand and will be out for at least 4-6 weeks, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

    Janis fractured his hand during Friday's preseason opener against the Browns and was originally considered week-to-week. Now that he's been ruled out for at least a month, it'll be tough for him to survive the final roster cuts heading into the regular season. Along with Jared Abbrederis and Trevor Davis, Janis was competing for the final spot or two on the receiver depth chart in Green Bay, and his injury could wind up being the deciding factor.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/15/16TEAndrew QuarlessSuspensionSUSPENDQuarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/10/16WRTy MontgomeryAnklePROBABLEMontgomery caught one pass for seven yards on five targets in Thursday's preseason game against Oakland.

    Just removed from the PUP list last week, Montgomery has played in both of Green Bay's preseason games, but he only has two catches for 14 yards on eight targets. While likely just competing for the fourth on fifth spot on the depth chart at wideout, the 2015 third-round selection could emerge as an option to return kicks and/or punts. It's also not out of the question that he could eventually push Davante Adams or Jared Abbrederis for playing time at wide receiver.
