01/25/17RBJohn CrockettShoulderQUESTIONABLECrockett (shoulder) has been placed on IR by the Packers.

The move leaves Brandon Burks and Brandon Ross as the team's depth RB options behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks, though it's possible the team will add backfield help in the coming days, in the wake of Crockett's placement on IR.

01/25/17DBDemetri GoodsonKneeQUESTIONABLEGoodson (knee) is unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2017 season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Goodson tore his ACL and MCL in November, which gives him a tight timetable for a return to form by the start of next season. The Packers are light at the corner position currently and will be hoping for a quick recovery from Goodson.

01/25/17RBDon JacksonKneeQUESTIONABLEJackson was placed on injured reserve Wednesday due to a knee injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jackson sustained the ailment in practice Wednesday, precipitating the decision to make a claim for Christine Michael off waivers from the Seahawks. With Jackson out of the picture, the Packers will trot out a backfield consisting of Ty Montgomery, James Starks, and Michael moving forward.

01/25/17RBEddie LacyAnkleQUESTIONABLELacy (ankle) has progressed enough in his recovery to run in a pool, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Lacy's 2016 season was brought to a halt due to a left ankle injury, the extent if which was enough to contain him to five appearances, but the Packers never revealed the nature of the ailment, other than to say he sustained more than sprain that precipitated surgery. Head coach Mike McCarthy has already mentioned that Lacy's prospects for a return to Green Bay may be contingent upon his health, so a physical could be ordered up as his unrestricted free agency approaches. If retained by the only organization he's ever known, Lacy will team with converted wideout Ty Montgomery to form a potential thunder-and-lightning RB combination.

01/23/17WRTy MontgomeryRibsQUESTIONABLEHead coach Mike McCarthy stated Thursday that Montgomery will remain a running back moving forward, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Although the Packers considered moving Montgomery to running back in the preseason -- if McCarthy is to be believed -- the move wasn't implemented until the need arose in Week 7. By that point in the season, Eddie Lacy was carrying the ankle injury that would bring his campaign to a close, while James Starks was recovering from surgery on a torn meniscus. As the year wore on, Montgomery was a hybrid threat, earning double-digit touches in six of his final 13 appearances (including postseason). Both rushing and pass-catching will characterize his role in 2017, but the nominal ground threat is to be determined due to the impending unrestricted free agency of Lacy.

01/23/17RBJames StarksConcussionQUESTIONABLEStarks (concussion) has been waived by the Packers with a non-football-injury designation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Starks was only able to take the field for nine games this season, ending the year on concussion protocol. The 30-year-old running back rushed for a measly 145 yards on 63 carries while recording in 19 receptions for 134 yards and two touchdowns in those nine contests. Starks' role on offense quickly diminished due to injuries and the emergence of Ty Montgomery as the new quick-paced, pass-catching target out of the backfield. The veteran now heads into free agency after spending the past seven seasons in Green Bay, the only place he has called home over his NFL career. It remains unseen how much Starks has left in the tank, especially when you factor in his injury plagued 2016 campaign, but he could find his way onto a team in need of a third-down back.

01/22/17DBMicah HydeShoulderQUESTIONABLEHyde injured his shoulder during the first half of Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons and his return is questionable.

The Packers' secondary struggles continue, while they hope Hyde will be able to return in the second half.

01/22/17LBJake RyanShoulderQUESTIONABLERyan (shoulder) finished the 2016 season with 82 tackles and three passes defensed while playing in 14 games.

Ryan went from playing in 24.7 percent of defensive snaps as a rookie in 2015 to playing 54.1 percent of snaps this past season. He improved as a coverage linebacker, defending three passes (plus three more in the playoffs) after he didn't defense a single pass as a rookie. The former fourth-round pick has been a decent player for the Packers and will look to improve as a starting caliber inside linebacker leading up to( the 2017 season.
