03/08/17DLLetroy GuionSuspensionSUSPENDGuion (suspension) had the final two years of his contract restructured Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The Packers aren't giving up on the defensive tackle after he was handed a four-game suspension earlier this week. It's his second suspension in the past three seasons, which left some to question whether the veteran would remain in green and gold for the upcoming year. Under his restructured deal, Guion will collect two offseason roster bonuses later in the season. He'll be allowed to participate in offseason workouts, practices and preseason games, as the suspension will not take effect until Week 1 of the regular season.

01/25/17RBJohn CrockettShoulderQUESTIONABLECrockett (shoulder) is an unrestricted free agent after not receiving a free agent tender from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

Crockett spent the entire 2016 season on injured reserve due to his shoulder injury. He has only nine career rushing attempts and isn't likely to have much of a role with any team in 2017.

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 (knee) was tendered by the Packers on Tuesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

An undrafted running back out of Nevada, Jackson joined the Packers in October after being called up from their practice squad. He ended up taking part in three games, including one start, carrying the ball 10 times for 32 yards before having his season cut short with an injury. After this deal, the Packers will be able to match any offer given to Jackson during free agency, so if all goes as expected, he'll be with the Packers come training camp. He'll have to compete with multiple other backs for a spot on the final roster.

01/25/17RBEddie LacyAnkleQUESTIONABLEAlthough the Seahawks will make a concerted effort to ensure Lacy (ankle) stays in shape, head coach Pete Carroll said he wants the 26-year-old running back to stay big, ESPN's Sheil Kapadia reports.

According to Kapadia, Lacy's target weight will be in the 240s, which is probably around where he was in 2016 prior to suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the 26-year-old running back checked in at 267 pounds during one of his free agent visits, putting him 20 to 25 pounds north of where the Seahawks want him by Week 1. It appears Lacy's weight will be a big story for the second straight offseason, just as it was at this time last year when he was coming off a disappointing 2015 campaign in which he was visibly hampered by his excess weight. A contract season provided plenty of motivation last time around, and the Seahawks are hoping for the same after signing him to a one-year, $5.5 million deal that includes $3 million guaranteed. Lacy is nearly five months removed from surgery which carried an estimated rehab timetable of four to six months, but the extra weight he's carrying probably doesn't help the process. While his contract makes him the early favorite to lead Seattle's backfield, Lacy has serious issues surrounding his health and conditioning, in addition to facing competition from teammates Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise (shoulder).

01/23/17WRTy MontgomeryRibsQUESTIONABLEEddie Lacy's departure for Seattle leaves Montgomery (ribs) as the Packers' lead back for now, the Wisconsin State Journal reports.

Montgomery capably handled the lead role late last season, with his emergence as a dual running/receiving threat helping the Green Bay offense find its form down the stretch. Despite having proof that the offense can thrive while deploying an undersized converted receiver as its lead back, the Packers figure to have serious interest in the top runners in the upcoming draft. The team might also consider adding a veteran free agent, but either way, Montgomery figures to have more competition than what is currently on the roster. That may not be a bad thing for Montgomery, who also thrived last season while rotating between running back and wide receiver. It isn't hard to envision him serving as something along the lines of a No. 2 running back and No. 4 wide receiver simultaneously.

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.

01/22/17LBJake 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.
