    07/11/16LBSam BarringtonAnklePROBABLEBarrington (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.

    07/11/16WRRandall CobbUpper BodyPROBABLECobb suffered a punctured lung during the Packers' divisional round loss at Arizona, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    During a spot Wednesday at Super Bowl 50's Radio Row, Cobb revealed the nature of the lung injury that knocked him out of the playoffs, relaying "I punctured my lung." Because he avoided a rib fracture in the process of landing on his back, he speculated that the fact he was miked up played a role in the injury, which left the Packers reeling at wideout in the eventual defeat. Nevertheless, with Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Aaron Rodgers is poised to have his entire arsenal of weapons healthy at the outset of next season.

    07/11/16TEJared CookFootPROBABLECook (foot) declared he is fully healthy after undergoing early-June foot surgery, The Gwinnett Daily Post reports.

    Though encouraging, Cook's claim should be taken with a grain of salt, as players tend to be over-optimistic when it comes to their own health. Ultimately, the status of his foot cannot be officially confirmed until Green Bay's medical staff is able to check it out themselves. That confirmation may still be weeks away, though, as the Packer's training camp doesn't begin until July 26.

    07/11/16DBDemetri 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.

    07/11/16WRTy MontgomeryAnkleQUESTIONABLEMontgomery (left ankle) is yet to be medically cleared and not guaranteed to be ready for training camp, according to head coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers' official site reports.

    Montgomery dealt with ankle issues seemingly all of last season, but has been (reportedly) pain-free during practice sessions this offseason. One of the most intense position battles across the league come August will be the battle for pecking order on the Packers' WR depth chart, and if Montgomery isn't ready to earn his keep, he could be disadvantaged in relation to his competition. Jordy Nelson (knee) is most certainly locked in as the X-receiver, while Cobb manning the slot, leaving Montgomery to compete with Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, and Trevor Davis for slotting. Montgomery could have a leg up due to what he can offer on special teams, but if the Packers aren't confident in the prospects of Montgomery's ankle, they may have drafted Montgomery's replacement in the rookie speedster, Trevor Davis.

    07/11/16DLMike 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.

    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.

    New York Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    07/11/16WRVictor CruzCalfPROBABLECruz (calf) is taking part in individual drills at Tuesday's mandatory minicamp practice, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

    A report last week said Cruz wouldn't participate in the three-day minicamp, but he's apparently ready to run routes and catch passes without facing a defender. This bodes quite well for his training camp availability, as he was already tentatively expected to be ready for the start of camp. It remains to be seen if Cruz is still effective, having last played in a game Nov. 12, 2014. He may also have to compete with rookie second-rounder Sterling Shepard for snaps, though the Giants figure to once again rank among the NFL leaders in use of three-wide formations.

    (Updated 06/14/2016)
    07/11/16RBOrleans DarkwaLegPROBABLEDarkwa is expected to be held out of action for about a month due to a small fracture in his tibia, NJ.com reports.

    The injury is considered minor, with the Giants simply playing it safe with the running back at this stage of the offseason. Once he returns to practice, Darkwa figures to compete for depth snaps (along with recently signed Bobby Rainey) in a crowded Giants' backfield that also rosters Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen.
