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.
Adams was considered unlikely to play after suffering an MCL injury last weekend, so Friday's news confirms he'll be unavailable Saturday. Although he struggled for most of this season, Adams' absence leaves the Packers' receiving corp a bit thin against Arizona's deep and talented secondary, but Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis are the most likely candidates to see more playing time.
Starks set career-high marks for rushing yards (601), receptions (43) and receiving yards (392) in 2015, but he also fumbled five times (lost three) and was unable to seize the lead-back role from an out-of-shape Eddie Lacy. The Packers hope Lacy will lose some weight and return to his 2013-14 form, but the team likely still has some interest in retaining Starks, who has never played for another organization. Set to turn 30 in February, Starks is unlikely to find a guaranteed starting job, but he might find a team that provides him with a better opportunity. Of course, he also emphasized the importance of winning, which is something he's grown accustomed to in Green Bay.
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.
Jones doubled his sack output for the year in Sunday's game alone, and now sits with three sacks in 10 games this season. He has not put up much in terms of statistics, but he has been a key component of the Packers' defensive line rotation.
Jones will be eligible to play in Week 2 after sitting out the Packers' season opener while serving a one-game suspension. He will likely be a reserve when Letroy Guion returns from a suspension of his own, but with Guion out another two weeks, Jones could get a chance to start.
Active status implies that Shields has been cleared from the concussion protocol. When compounded with the healthy scratch of rookie cornerback LaDarius Gunter, Shields appears poised to take on a significant workload, though Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com warned earlier Saturday that the veteran corner may be contained to a limited role.
Abbrederis was targeted four times on Sunday, with his longest reception going for nine yards. He had a critical two-point conversion reception that put the Packers up by 14 early in the fourth quarter. Abbrederis is likely to continue to see his number called during the Packers' playoff push after Davante Adams went down with a knee injury.
Fulfilling his role as a space eater on the Packers' defensive front, Daniels will play a large role in the fortunes of Adrian Peterson in the season finale. In their first matchup of the season, Daniels helped contain Peterson to 13 runs for 45 yards and one touchdown.
During a spot Wednesday at Super Bowl 50's Radio Row, Cobb revealed the nature of the lung injury that knocked him out of the playoffs, relaying "I punctured my lung." Because he avoided a rib fracture in the process of landing on his back, he speculated that the fact he was miked up played a role in the injury, which left the Packers reeling at wideout in the eventual defeat. Nevertheless, with Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Aaron Rodgers is poised to have his entire arsenal of weapons healthy at the outset of next season.
This explains why Montgomery had so much trouble making consistent progress in his recovery from what was merely reported to be an ankle sprain. The cartilage damage obviously complicated matters, but with the rookie wideout getting surgery out of the way at this early stage, he should be ready for the start of training camp, if not the beginning of offseason activities in April. Given how poorly Davante Adams has played this season, Montgomery could compete for a spot in three-wide sets alongside Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson (knee).
The nature and extent of Barrington's setback is uncertain, but it will prevent him from taking the field again this season. With Barrington out, Nate Palmer will step into the starting lineup at middle linebacker alongside Clay Matthews.
Quarless missed the vast majority of this season due to a knee issue, which required fluid draining earlier this week. With concerns over his health and effectiveness going forward, the Packers decided to shut Quarless down for the year, opening the door for Justin Perillo to serve as Richard Rodgers' main backup at tight end ahead of Saturday's playoff game in Arizona.
Nelson has by all accounts been far ahead of schedule in his rehab from knee surgery. In already being able to run at full speed, Nelson appears poised to be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around, although it's possible his reps could still be monitored as a precaution. While that's certainly a long time from now, Nelson's progress since his injury is a source of encouragement for the Packers offense.
This move shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Richardson was expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering his second herniated disk of his career. The Packers have been ultra-safe with neck injuries in years past.
Palmer was all over the field on a day where the Packers defense played pretty well despite the loss at home. The third-year linebacker now has 46 tackles on the year and he'll continue to be a staple in the middle of the Packers' defense next to Clay Matthews.
After suffering a hamstring injury at practice Thursday, Perillo was listed as a non-participant on Friday's injury report. With Andrew Quarless back in the picture, though, Perillo will be afforded a week of rest.
Peppers' activity in the sack department Sunday gives him 9.5 sacks on the season, which is his best mark since the 2012 season. He will have two more games to get to the quarterback again and finish with double-digit sacks for the ninth time in his 14-year career.
It was Matthews' third multiple sack performance of the season and the first since Oct. 11. He appears to be returning to full form since suffering ankle and knee injuries in Week 8, which he has played through all season. In the three games leading up to Sunday's victory, Matthews totaled 3 tackles and a sack.
Crockett was in uniform Sunday for the first time since Week 13, but he was not involved in the offense until after starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers was removed from the game, so it's unlikely he will be much of a factor in the Packers' key Week 17 matchup with the Vikings.
Burnett reached double digits in tackles for the second time this season. The only other time he reached the double digit tackles was against the Cardinals, a reassuring sign for the Packers' defense as they head into Saturday's matchup.
One week removed from suffering a concussion, Hayward's presence means that the Packers' secondary is intact for the first time in weeks. Expect him to start at cornerback opposite Sam Shields (shoulder).
Both Rollins and Sam Shields emerged from Week 8 with shoulder injuries, and their failure to practice in advance of Sunday's game has yielded the expected results. With the duo out, rookie Damarious Randall will likely earn the start at cornerback opposite Casey Hayward.
Perillo will provide depth at tight end behind Richard Rodgers and Kennard Backman, but it's unlikely he will provide much Fantasy value even if one or both goes down with an injury.
It seemed Clinton-Dix would blow past the 100-tackle plateau after making 87 stops in his first 12 games, but he tallied just 13 more tackles the rest of the way and finished right at the century mark. While his tackle pace slowed at the end of the season, he proved to be a useful option in IDP leagues during his sophomore campaign, notching three sacks and two interceptions to go along with the 100 tackles.
Crosby cleared both a 29-yard and 43-yard field goal on Sunday. He has attempted a field goal in all but three games this season, one of which was against the Cardinals. The loss to the Cardinals was also the only time Crosby did not attempt an extra point this season.
With Davante Adams (knee) sidelined and Randall Cobb (chest) exiting the game early, Rodgers equaled his second-highest target total of the season. He acquitted himself well overall as a safety valve target for Aaron Rodgers, who was up against a fierce Cardinals pass rush that had taken him down eight times in their Week 16 meeting. The second-year pro turned in a very solid sophomore campaign, boosting his catch total to 58 and hauling in an impressive eight touchdowns. He also was targeted an abundant 85 times, a number partially influenced by wideout Jordy Nelson's season-long absence.
Boyd was previously thought to have escaped serious injury, but upon Monday's MRI revealing torn ankle ligaments, Boyd's condition appears worse than hoped. With a broken ankle bone as well, Boyd may now be sidelined for the remainder of this season, potentially leaving the Packers without a member of their defensive line rotation.
Lacy was listed at 234 pounds this season, but appeared far heavier and less explosive than during his previous two NFL campaigns. That extra weight limited Lacy to just five touchdowns during the regular season, when didn't manage a single rush of over 30 yards. As Lacy now looks forward to the final year of his rookie contract, the Packers hope he'll lose up to 30 pounds in order to regain some of the dynamism he's flashed in past seasons.
Ryan replaced an ineffective Nate Palmer in the first half of Sunday's loss and made a number of plays in the first extended action of his professional career. His Week 9 showing should earn him more snaps moving forward, and could even earn him a starting job.
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.
The Packers elected to pull Rodgers from Sunday's game in the fourth quarter with the team well behind on the scoreboard, and Tolzien quarterbacked the last two drives. He will continue to serve as Rodgers' top backup for the remainder of the season.
Jones helped set up Green Bay's first touchdown of the game by nabbing a 34-yard strike down the seam. Jones came out of nowhere to score six touchdowns in the seasons' first six games, but scored just twice afterward. He still managed to lead the team in receiving yards and was the top target in Green Bay's Week 16 loss to their Division Round opponent, Arizona. During that game, Jones caught five of 11 targets for 46 yards.
At left tackle, Thomas is the anchor of the Cleveland offensive line. His absence could have meant struggles in both pass protection and the running game, but Thomas hasn't missed a game in his career, and he'll keep that streak alive Sunday. With Alex Mack (calf) and Cameron Erving (ankle) also listed as active, the Cleveland offensive line will send out their regular starting five, even if they may be operating at less than 100 percent.
Rodgers has never been listed with a knee issue in the course of his professional career, but the procedure was performed as a "cleanup of an old injury," which could be a reference to reconstructive surgery that was performed on his left knee in January of 2004 at the University of California. Arthroscopic surgeries aren't accompanied by lengthy recovery periods, and the quarterback himself stated Friday that he's "doing well" and "recovering on schedule." As a result, he pulled himself out of Sunday's Pro Bowl but shouldn't have any problem being available for the entirety of the offseason program.
The questionables are cornerback Jarrett Bush (groin) and linebackers Nick Perry (shoulder) and Jayrone Elliott (hamstring). The probables are guards Josh Sitton (toe) and T.J. Lang (ankle) and linebacker Clay Matthews (groin).
Neal underwent hernia surgery during the offseason, which caused him to miss the beginning of training camp, but he said the injury has healed.
"I wanted to practice the first day we had practice, but the timetable was set by Dr. and [general manager] Ted [Thompson]," he said. "It was just one of those things that they wanted to go through and watch me and see how it felt. We just made a decision in the morning we'd go with it. There was no need to hold out any longer. I'd been out for a while. So it was time to get back out there."
"Aaron is getting ready to play," McCarthy said during his Friday press conference. "Looks good. Everything is on schedule."
McCarthy also had a positive report on Lacy.
"Looks good to me," McCarthy said.
The Seahawks are considered 7 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's game.
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.
Kuhn isn't a threat to Eddie Lacy's or James Starks' standing on the depth chart, but both his snap count and touches have picked up of late, which increases the chances of him stealing a score from one of the two aforementioned backs like he did Sunday.
Perry returned to action the previous week after missing a game with a shoulder injury, and Sunday's effort indicates he is good to go moving forward. Perry notched three sacks in the Packers' first four games but has tallied just a half sack in the three games he has played in since.
In the aftermath of last Sunday's game, an MRI revealed no damage to Raji's groin, which ended his day early. With the bye week imminent (Week 7), the Packers will keep him in street clothes, as Letroy Guion gets the start at nose tackle.
The second-year pro took full advantage of the extra opportunity afforded him after Randall Cobb's exit with a chest injury, setting career-high totals in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. The 6'3 receiver's leaping grab of an Aaron Rodgers desperation heave as time expired in regulation helped send the game into overtime, heroics that were quickly overshadowed by Larry Fitzgerald's outstanding performance in the extra period. Janis nevertheless provided a glimpse of his physical tools, and will enter 2016 offseason workouts fighting to move up the wide receiver depth chart.
