Burnett (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.
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.
Crockett 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.
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.
Daniels 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.
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.
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.
Rodgers (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.
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.
Hali (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Bears, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Hali was just removed from the Chiefs' PUP list on Monday, so he only has a few practices under his belt. Coach Andy Reid indicated earlier in the week that he wasn't going to push Hali back into action prematurely, so it appears the team will take a cautious approach with their 32-year-old linebacker. He's been ruled out of Saturday's game and isn't a guarantee to play in the Chiefs' preseason finale on Sept. 1 versus the Packers.
Charles (knee) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against Chicago, the Kansas City Star reports.
This nugget is not particularly surprising, given that Charles only recently came off the Chiefs' PUP list, but on the plus side, the veteran running back -- who tore his right ACL in Week 5 of last season -- has continued to increase his level of practice participation of late.
Bray (neck) returned to practice Tuesday and was working as the third-string quarterback, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Bray had a small chip fracture in his cervical spine, but it wasn't deemed a serious threat to his playing ability, thus allowing him to return to the practice field Tuesday. He was immediately inserted as the team's third-string quarterback, ahead of both Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan. However, both Alex Smith and Nick Foles rank ahead of him on the depth chart currently, so if the Chiefs ultimately roster just two quarterbacks for the upcoming season, Bray could find himself as a practice squad candidate.
West (elbow) has been ruled out for the Chiefs' third preseason game Saturday against the Bears, BJ Kissel of the team's official site reports.
West was thought to have had a chance at playing in this one, but the Chiefs likely don't want to take their chances on the pesky elbow injury he's been nursing for over a week. However, all indications point towards West being ready for the regular season opener when the Chiefs square off with a Chargers team that allowed the 27th-most yards rushing in 2015.
Mauga (groin) was spotted wearing shorts, but was out with the team at practice Monday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Mauga required an MRI after suffering a groin strain but appears nearly ready to rejoin practice on a full basis. Barring a major setback of some kind, he should be good to go for the start of the regular season and possible some of the preseason. However, groin strains can linger, so it's something to monitor.
Peters left Saturday's practice early to receive an IV, the Kansas City Star reports.
The issue likely relates to dehydration and unless something more comes of it, there shouldn't be much reason to worry about it. Still, Peters' situation should still be monitored over the next couple days to ensure that's the case.
Ford (knee) left each of the final two days of minicamp because of tendinitis in his knee, The Kansas City Star reports.
Ford was reported to have left minicamp with a "sore knee", spelling concern over potential structural damage. However, Ford has reportedly avoided any such catastrophe, leaving head coach Andy Reid to say that his 2014 first round pick will be fine for training camp.
Thomas may not make the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
Teicher suggests that Thomas is not among the team's top six receivers and sits behind Tyreek Hill on the punt returner spot of the depth chart. Unless he can carve out a role in the final couple preseason games, it may spell the end of the speedster's run in Kansas City.
