    04/27/16DBAlex CarterAnklePROBABLEThe Lions elected to place cornerback Alex Carter on their short-term injured reserve list, according to the team's official website.
    04/27/16LBDeAndre LevyHipPROBABLELevy (hip) is expected to be fully healthy by training camp, NFL.com reports.

    Levy is coming off a season in which he was limited to merely 17 snaps due to a hip injury that required surgery in October. After spending so much time out, Levy returned for the start of the Lions offseason workouts last month and has reportedly looked good in the process. As Levy continues to increase his workload, he's expected to be fully healthy by training camp, which would represent a needed boost to a Lions defense that faltered without him last season.

    05/18/16WRTy MontgomeryAnkleQUESTIONABLEMontgomery (ankle) continues to nurse his ankle injury and is now off crutches, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

    After undergoing surgery on his ankle in December, Montgomery has shown steady progress in the hopes of returning to the field healthy this season. "Everything is moving smoothly. My timeline is their timeline. We're all working together and just making sure the best things happen for me to get healthy", Montgomery said.

    05/18/16WRJordy NelsonKneePROBABLENelson (knee) participated in the first day of the Packers' offseason program Monday, and afterward said "We're right where we want to be" in his rehab program.

    Nelson characteristically didn't make any proclamations on when he'll be 100 percent, but it's telling that he reported no "mental blocks" or worries about losing a step after going through Monday's workout. Following his torn ACL suffered last preseason, all indications suggest Nelson has been recovering with great progress, shedding positive light on his outlook ahead of Week 1. Nonetheless, Nelson's involvement will have to be monitored throughout the build-up to this season, and onlookers should expect the Packers to take every precaution necessary with their star wideout.

    04/27/16LBSam BarringtonAnklePROBABLEThe Packers placed Sam Barrington (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
    04/27/16DBDemetri 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)
    04/27/16DLMike 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.
