Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randle tallied seven tackles (six solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Raiders.

Randall took some lumps from Oakland's Amari Cooper on Sunday, but he was productive in the fantasy department thanks to the pick-six -- the first of his career. Randall is up to 51 tackles (46 solo) and three interceptions 13 games into his rookie season.

Tyler Kuder
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Davante Adams
News
Adams caught three of seven targets for 26 yards in the Packers' 17-14 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Adams' stat line could have looked much prettier had he not been the victim of multiple pass interference penalties, including one in the end zone off a bomb from QB Aaron Rodgers. Furthermore, the entire Packers offense appear out of sync, leading to depressed stat lines across the board for Green Bay skill position players. Fortunately, Adams and the rest of his team will have a chance to improve next week against the Lions.

James Starks
News
Starks carried seven times for three yards and secured his only target for 16 yards in the Packers' 17-14 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Similar to the rest of the Packers' offense, Starks was completely bottled up on Sunday, posting an abysmal 0.4 YPC. However, that number is especially worrisome when considering his teammate Eddie Lacy managed an average of 4.2. On the bright side, Starks will have an opportune chance to rebound Week 3 against a Lions' defense that was whittled to just two healthy linebackers Week 2.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Bulaga has been a limited participant in practice all week -- a good sign considering he hasn't been able to take the field since Week 1 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus. That being said, no official word has been announced regarding his status for Week 5, likely making him a game-time decision against the Rams.

Datone Jones
News
Jones (knee) was downgraded to doubtful to play in Week 3.

If he's ultimately unable to play, Julius Peppers projects to start at outside linebacker as starter Clay Matthews (ankle/hamstring) has been ruled out.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Doubtful for Week 3 vs. Detroit
Herb Waters
News
Waters was released by the Packers on Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Waters spent all of training camp with the Packers after signing as an undrafted free agent, but he faced long odds to make the cut given the team's depth at his position, and ended up on the outside looking in. He is a candidate for the practice squad, however.

Kenny Clark
News
Clark (back) was inactive for the Packers' final preseason game, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Clark sat out the Packers' final two preseason games, but he believes his back injury will not prevent him from being available for Week 1. Clark missed out on some key reps the last couple weeks, but the Packers will likely count on their first-round pick to be part of the defensive line rotation.

Blake Martinez
News
The Packers appear committed to using Martinez as a full-time linebacker in 2016, USA TODAY Sports reports.

Selected in the fourth round of this year's draft, Martinez has seen extensive work with Green Bay's starting unit in each of the team's base, nickel and dime defenses throughout the team's offseason program. Most significant is the rookie's deployment in dime packages, as he is the lone inside linebacker on the field in such a scenario. However, the pads have yet to come on, and Martinez still needs to prove his mettle both within the trenches and as a tackler in order secure the starting job in advance of the regular season.

Letroy Guion
News
Guion was downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

Previously considered questionable to play, Guion participated in the Packers' practice on Saturday, but the coaching staff must not have been encouraged by the health of his knee. However, he wasn't expected to be ready anyway after sustaining a sprained MCL in Week 2.

Injury
Knee - Did Not Practice on Friday. Doubtful for Week 3 vs. Detroit
JC Tretter
News
The Packers activated center/guard JC Tretter from short-term injured reserve and released former first-round offensive tackle Derek Sherrod, the team announced. Tretter suffered a knee injury right before the season.
Sam Shields
News
Head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Shields remains in the league's concussion protocol, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Shields visited a concussion specialist at some point this week, but it's not clear if that had any effect on his status. He will need to be cleared of any concussion symptoms before returning to practice, and will likely need to get in some practice time before returning to game action.

Injury
Concussion - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 vs. Detroit
Jared Abbrederis
News
Abbrederis was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Abbrederis' opportunities to contribute Sunday were almost nil, as he was on the field for just six of the Packers' 71 offensive plays. That paced him fourth among Packers receivers, but a distant fourth, as No. 3 receiver Davante Adams saw more targets -- seven -- than Abbrederis did snaps.

Trevor Davis
News
Davis played five snaps on offense but was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

Davis did not make any fantasy impact Sunday, but the rookie did total the fifth most snaps among Packers receivers after being inactive in Week 1 due to a shoulder injury. He should not definitively be considered fifth on the depth chart, however, as two receivers he played over Sunday -- Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis -- will also garner consideration for that spot moving forward.

Jason Spriggs
No Updates
Blake Muir
No Updates
Lane Taylor
News
Packers starting cornerback Sam Shields is active for Monday's game against the Falcons after being listed as questionable with a concussion. Also suiting up are defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (back), guard T.J. Lang (ankle), linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder), guard Josh Sitton (toe) and guard Lane Taylor (illness).
Geronimo Allison
News
Allison was released by the Packers on Saturday, according to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Allison averaged an impressive 19.8 yards per catch on six receptions this preseason, but there was not room for him on the roster given the Packers' depth at the receive position. Allison was not claimed off waivers, to the Packers figure to look at adding him to the practice squad.

Mike Daniels
News
Daniels (illness) made two solo tackles in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Daniels missed a day of practice last week with an illness, but he ailment did not prevent him from taking the field last week. Daniels will head into the regular season as the Packers' top defensive lineman.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb secured five of seven targets for 42 yards in the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings, adding one yard off one rushing attempt.

The Vikings' defense harassed QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday to the tune of five sacks, three forced fumbles and one interception. Consequently, the Packers generated just 213 yards of offense through the air. It figures to be just a matter of time before the Green Bay offense gets back in sync, a la pre-2015, and in such an event, Cobb's numbers would likely look much different than his pair of pedestrian stat lines through two games into 2016. In fact, Cobb owners may not have to wait very long at all for a statistical rebound, as the Packers square off against an injury-depleted Lions defense Week 3.

Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery blocked a punt and returned a kickoff for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings, but did not play a snap on offense.

Montgomery made his presence felt on special teams Sunday night, but he was left on the bench on offense while five other receivers saw action in front of him. The zero snaps were not too far behind the six snaps No. 4 receiver Jared Abbrederis played nor the five plays tallied by No. 5 wideout Trevor Davis, but Montgomery would have to surpass both players on the depth chart -- and also likely No. 3 receiver Davanted Adams -- to even have a chance at making a fantasy impact.

Jared Cook
News
Cook corralled four of six targets for 31 yards in the Packers' 17-14 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Considering how QB Aaron Rodgers managed just 213 passing yards against a stout Vikings defense, Cooks' forgettable stat line is, well, exactly that. On the bright side, his six targets were right up there with Randall Cobb and Davante Adams, who each received seven, second-most on the team. However, through two games, Cooks has logged just five receptions for 38 receiving yards without reaching the end zone. He isn't entirely to blame for his lack of production, though, but may struggle to post starter-worthy fantasy numbers until the entire Packers offense gets back on track.

Brett Goode
No Updates
Makinton Dorleant
Injury
Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson gathered in five of 11 targets for 73 yards and one touchdown in Sunday night's loss at Minnesota.

The communication between Nelson and Aaron Rodgers has yet to settle on a happy medium, as evidenced by a measly 45 percent catch rate in this contest. Granted, Nelson salvaged his evening with a one-yard touchdown for the game's first score, which came on the heels of a defensive holding call on the wideout from Vikings defensive back Terence Newman. On the other side of the coin, Rodgers clearly expected Nelson to be prepared for certain back-shoulder throws, in particular, that instead fell incomplete. With end-zone visits in back-to-back weeks, it's difficult to be disappointed in Nelson's initial outings following an ACL tear, but his 9.5 YPC to date falls well short of his mark of 15.3 YPC prior to the injury.

Joe Callahan
News
Callahan made the Packers 53-man roster, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports

With Brett Hundley seemingly entrenched in the backup quarterback role, Callahan figured to be a long shot for making the final roster. However, injuries to Hundley in the preseason gave the 23-year-old rookie an opportunity to impress. He went 53-for-88 and recorded three touchdowns and zero interceptions during the preseason. It is unclear if the Packers intend on going three quarterbacks deep or if they'll let Hundley go. Either move would be considered surprising, the former due to the stability at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers' presence, and the latter due to the hold Hundley appeared to have on the role heading into camp.

Justin Perillo
News
Perillo (knee) is active for Sunday's contest at Jacksonville, Duke Bobber of the Packers' official site reports.

Perillo followed up DNPs on Wednesday and Thursday with a limited showing Friday, clearing the way for active status in Week 1. Working behind Jared Cook and Richard Rodgers, Perillo likely won't earn more than a handful of snaps in the opener.

Julius Peppers
News
Peppers recorded 1.5 sacks to go along with a pair of tackles Sunday against the Vikings.

Before getting too excited about the veteran's performance, he's no longer a full-time player, though he obviously has the ability to get to the quarterback. Despite the limited snaps, he'll play in high-leverage situations, making him a candidate for decent sack totals, but almost non-existent as a tackler.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Matthews continues to deal with both ankle and hamstring injuries, and he won't be available for the Packers on Sunday after failing to practice throughout the week. Veteran pass-rusher Julius Peppers figures to see additional time with Matthews sidelined.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 vs. Detroit
John Crockett
News
Crockett (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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Lions.

Burnett's absence is no surprise after not being able to practice throughout the week due to the groin injury he suffered during the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings. Micah Hyde is next in line to receive extra work at safety with Burnett out.

Injury
Groin - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 3 vs. Detroit
Aaron Ripkowski
News
Ripkowski is not listed on the Packers' injury report in advance of their Week 1 matchup with the Jaguars.

Ripkowski was inactive for the Packers' third exhibition contest but otherwise saw action in the other three games. He worked in a backup role last year in his rookie season, but with John Kuhn no longer on the roster, he will move into the starting fullback spot for the Packers.

Quinten Rollins
News
Rollins says his dislocated thumb is at 100 percent, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Rollins missed most of the offseason due to his injury, but is practicing actively at the Packers' training camp and good to go for the season.

Lucas Patrick
No Updates
Kentrell Brice
No Updates
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix made three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Clinton-Dix tallied 16 tackles through two games in 2015, but has racked up just eight in all in two weeks this season. He averaged over six tackles per game coming into this year, so there is reason to believe he will pick up the pace.

Micah Hyde
News
Hyde played sparingly in the Packers' 27-23 win over the Jaguars Sunday.

Hyde seems to have fully recovered from his hip injury that kept him sidelined for some parts of last season, but the former starting strong safety finds himself below teammate Morgan Burnett on the depth chart. While Hyde has been productive in the past, his single tackle performance Sunday is nothing to bring home about.

Mason Crosby
News
Crosby made two extra points and did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Crosby's production took a big hit after he posted a useful total of nine points in Week 1. He and the Packers will next square off against the Lions, a team he totaled just seven points against over two games in 2015.

Richard Rodgers
News
Rodgers caught both of his targets for 25 yards in the Packers' 17-14 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Rodgers appears to have taken a backseat to offseason acquisition Jared Cook in 2016, or at least as QB Aaron Rodgers' go-to receiving tight end. Case in point, while both ended up posting similar yardage, Cook garnered three times as many targets (6). Fortunately, Rodgers gets the Lions on deck Week 3, a team he burned for eight catches across eight targets for 146 yards and a touchdown the last time the two teams met.

Kyle Murphy
No Updates
Mike Pennel
News
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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 6 vs. Dallas
Eddie Lacy
News
Lacy totaled 12 rushes for 50 yards during Sunday's defeat at the hands of the Vikings.

Of the 48 official carries for the Packers after two games, Lacy has handled 26 of them, followed by James Starks (11), Aaron Rodgers (seven), and Randall Cobb (four). Such usage is slightly above Lacy's averaged carry count from last season's disappointment, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence that he can replicate his output from the first two years of his career. However, his 4.3 YPC this year matches up almost precisely with his mark as a professional, so if the Packers opt to commit a bit more to the ground game, another 1,000-yard could come to fruition.

Jake Ryan
News
Ryan made two tackles in Thursday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

Ryan, who battled a hamstring injury for much of camp, took the field for the first time this preseason Thursday. It remains to be seen who the Packers' starting middle linebackers will be, but Ryan is in the next for one of the two spots.

Carl Bradford
News
Bradford was released by the Packers on Saturday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bradford got a shot to make the team at the middle linebacker position, but the Packers opted to go in a different direction. Bradford still has practice squad eligibility, so the Packers could attempt to bring him back if he clears waivers.

Brett Hundley
News
Hundley (finger) is not listed on the Packers' injury report in advance of their Week 1 matchup with the Jaguars.

Hundley's ankle injury cost him what would have been quite a few important preseason reps, but it will not prevent him from being available for Week 1. He is set to open the season as the backup quarterback behind starter Aaron Rodgers.

Don Barclay
News
Restricted free agent tackle Don Barclay signed a tender sheet with the Packers on Thursday, returning to the club for his fourth season, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com.

Earlier reports said the Packers tendered Barclay at the lowest level of $1.542 million. He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL after starting 14 games for the team in 2013.

Don Jackson
No Updates
Joe Thomas
News
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.

Aaron Rodgers
News
Rodgers completed 20 of 34 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Jaguars. He added another 16 yards and a touchdown via four carries.

Rodgers and company failed to generate big plays Sunday, making just two plays of over 22 yards, but they committed no turnovers and capitalized on field position to grind out a road win versus an improved Jags team. Rodgers notably connected with Jordy Nelson in the end zone and scored on a six-yard scramble in the first quarter-- two things that have helped him establish an extremely stable floor for production in recent seasons. He will look to build on a strong start next week versus Minnesota.

Jermaine Whitehead
No Updates
Jay Elliott
News
Elliott (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Duke Bobber of the Packers' official site reports.

Sidelined since the third preseason game with a hamstring issue, Elliott will remain a regular DNP until practice is a part of his regimen. When healthy, though, he'll merely serve as a depth pass rusher.

Demetri Goodson
News
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.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 6 vs. Dallas
LaDarius Gunter
No Updates
Devon Cajuste
News
Cajuste was released by the 49ers on Saturday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cajuste was buried on San Francisco's depth chart, but will likely be a candidate to join the practice squad once he clears waivers.

Jacob Schum
News
The Buccaneers cut five players Tuesday to get down to the NFL-mandated 75-man limit, with the biggest name being punter Michael Koenen

Tampa Bay decided to go with first-year punter Jacob Schum over the veteran Koenen. The rest of the Bucs' cuts include guard Josh Allen, WR Robert Herron and corner Leonard Johnson. Defensive tackle Akeem Spence was placed on the PUP list. 

David Bakhtiari
News
The Packers injury report for Friday can be described as the "Killer B's." The last names of four of the five players on it start with that letter.

Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (groin) has been ruled out while linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) is questionable and tackle David Bakhtiari (back) and defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee) are probable.

The only exception is defensive tackle Datone Jones (ankle), who is questionable.

T.J. Lang
News
Packers defensive lineman T.J. Lang left Sunday's preseason game. The team later announced that Lang was being evaluated for a possible concussion. 
Injury
Hip - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Detroit
Kyler Fackrell
News
The Packers selected Fackrell in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 88th overall.

Fackrell is a big and versatile linebacker, standing at 6-foot-5, 245 pounds and with the ability to play either on the edge or off the ball. He's not the most disruptively explosive linebacker, but Fackrell is a smooth athlete who should be able to provide Green Bay with snaps at both inside and outside linebacker.

Reggie Gilbert
No Updates
Dean Lowry
News
The Packers selected Lowry in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 137th overall.

Lowry is a huge figure and an intriguing 3-4 end prospect for the Packers, standing at 6-foot-6, 296 pounds with standout athleticism for such a big lineman. His athleticism is only average when compared to defensive ends, but when compared to the more similar position of defensive tackle, Lowry grades as an elite athlete.

Nick Perry
News
The Packers and Perry agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Perry has battled injuries and bouts of ineffectiveness since he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. However, he came to life in the Packers' pair of postseason tilts this past season, totaling 3.5 sacks among eight tackles and a forced fumble. If he's able to channel such production over an entire campaign, he could parlay this one-year deal into a big payday. More likely, though, his final defensive snap count will linger around the 33.4 percent he received in 2015.

Josh Hawkins
No Updates
Chris Banjo
News
Banjo (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday in Minnesota, Duke Bobber of the Packers' official site reports.

Like outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott, Banjo has been out of commission since the third preseason game due to a hamstring injury. Once he receives clearance for game action, he'll return to a regular role on special teams.

Brian Price
No Updates
Jeff Janis
News
Janis will be forced to play at least another week with a club cast on his broken right hand, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Janis will be forced to resume his strictly special teams' role for for as long as he is in his cast. The soonest he could return to the mix offensively would be after the team's Week 4 bye. Regardless, the 25-year-old remains relatively buried on the team's receiving depth chart.

Corey Linsley
News
The Packers placed starting center JC Tretter on injured reserve/designated to return with a knee injury. He won't be eligible to play until Week 9.

In the meantime, rookie Corey Linsley will start at center, starting Thursday at Seattle.

Injury
Hamstring - Physically Unable to Perform
