Randall missed last Thursday's win over the Bears after aggravating his groin in Week 6 and will now be sidelined for more action following surgery. Although Randall is anticipated to return later this season, his absence, along with top cornerback Sam Shields (concussion) being on injured reserve, leaves the Packers secondary in bad shape ahead of Sunday's matchup against Julio Jones and the Falcons.
In a true out-of-nowhere performance, Adams led all receivers on the night in receptions, yardage and targets while impressively bouncing back from a concussion suffered just four days prior versus the Cowboys. He hooked up with Aaron Rodgers for a go-ahead five-yard score late in the third before connecting with him for a second time from two yards out to extend the Packers' lead to 20-10 early in the fourth quarter. While the numbers provided quite the boon for his fantasy owners, the reality is that Rodgers' pass distribution Thursday was anything but typical, considering No.1 receiver Jordy Nelson received only four targets to Adams' 16. While he can still be expected to offer solid production in a third receiver role going forward, it would likely be unwise to expect similar production to Thursday's going forward. However, with five touchdowns on the season, Adams does seem to have a prominent role in Green Bay's red-zone strategy.
Starks has been subject of conflicting reports since news of his surgery to repair a torn meniscus surfaced Sunday. Prior to Mike McCarthy vaguely saying Monday he anticipates a "quick" recovery from Starks, the veteran tailback was reportedly slated to miss "several" weeks. Given the latests news, it appears the latter outlook is closest to the mark and Stark will be sidelined for about a month, creating a significant absence in the Packers' offense. With starter Eddie Lacy (ankle) noticeably gimpy and no other running back on the current roster healthy, Green Bay may be forced to promote Don Jackson from the practice squad and use wideouts Ty Montgomery and Randall Cobb more out of the backfield.
Bulaga exited the Packers' Week 6 contest with a back injury, and tried toughing it out, but was unable to return. Thus, he entered the week uncertain to be ready for Green Bay's short turnaround in Week 7. However, his full participation during Wednesday's practice put all questions to rest.
After missing Week 3 due to injury, Jones was afforded a bye this past week and now appears to have regained his health. He should be ready to play come Sunday.
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.
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.
Martinez's snap count dwindled the last couple weeks, but he was on the field for 71 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, which led all Green Bay middle linebackers and provided him extra opportunities to set a new career best for tackles in a game.
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.
Shields has not definitively been ruled out for the season, but he will be out at least eight more weeks, so he will not be eligible to play again until Week 14 at the earliest. This is the fifth concussion Shields has suffered in his career, so the Packers will continue proceeding with caution, and it should not come as a surprise if he is unable to return this season.
Despite a spate of injuries within the Packers' receiving corps that past two seasons, Abbrederis has been unable to make inroads, totaling 10 catches (on 18 targets) for 119 yards across 15 games during that span. With his placement on IR, he could be activated for the final two games of the season, but running back Eddie Lacy (ankle) and Sam Shields (concussion) are better candidates to get the call.
Davis' role appeared to be increasing early this season when he went from zero offensive snaps in Week 1 to 12 snaps -- 22 percent of the Packers' 54 plays -- in Week 3, but since the team's Week 4 bye he has been used on 19 of a possible 150 plays on offense, or just 13 percent. Davis is working as the Packers' punt returner, but he took a back seat to fellow reserve wideouts Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis over the last couple weeks, so consider him no higher than sixth on the depth chart at the receiver position heading into Week 7.
Allison had a strong preseason for the Packers, but with so many quality wide receivers in the fold, he was unable to lock up a roster spot. Instead, he's spent time on the team's practice squad in hopes of being called up later in the season. With Jared Abbrederis being placed on IR due to a thigh injury, Allison will get his wish and has been promoted to the active roster. With that said, he'll still likely see just limited snaps and could struggle to get targets on most nights.
Like teammate Ty Montgomery, Cobb was called upon for some double duty Thursday given the decimated state of the Packers backfield. He contributed modestly on the ground but was solid through the air while receiving the second-most targets on the night. Cobb has now scored in consecutive weeks after getting shut of the end zone over Green Bay's first four games, and has seen a total of 37 targets over the last three contests. That level of attention is likely unsustainable over the long term, but the sixth-year pro has certainly regained his footing in the offense after some early-season struggles.
The second-year receiver expected to be busy Thursday and that prophecy was indeed fulfilled. After not seeing a target prior to Week 6, Montgomery now has 20 receptions on 25 targets over the last two weeks. Due to the MASH unit-status of the Packers backfield entering Thursday's contest, Montgomery also put in work at running back for the second straight week, although his Week 7 workload was much more extensive than last Sunday's versus the Cowboys. The Stanford product impressively ripped of a 30-yard run as a back, flashing his versatile skill set. With Eddie Lacy (ankle) now on IR and James Starks (knee) expected out at least three more weeks, Montgomery could still see a decent workload out of the backfield even as recent acquisition Knile Davis acclimates to the offense.
Cook still has a few hurdles to cross before being ready to play again, but he has resumed working out and said he is "not far off" from completing his recovery from the ankle injury he is dealing with. Richard Rodgers will continue handling the bulk of the tight end duties for the Packers until Cook returns.
On a night where the trio of Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Ty Montgomery saw a combined 44 targets, Nelson was shockingly the forgotten man. His one reception prevented him from being shut out of the stat sheet altogether for the first time since November 4, 2012 in a game versus the Cardinals. Aaron Rodgers was simply able to find the aforementioned receivers on a consistent basis Thursday, but given Nelson's track record and rapport with the quarterback, Thursday's overall pass distribution has to be considered an outlier. Nelson will look to bounce back to his customary numbers when the Packers take on the Falcons in what could turn into a Week 8 shootout.
Perillo has operated as the Packers' backup tight end while Jared Cook (ankle) has been sidelined, but he is playing only a bit role in the Packers' offense: Sunday's reception was the only one he has recorded in the two games Cook has been ruled out of.
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.
Matthews was held out of the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions due to the ankle injury he suffered against Minnesota. Though he hasn't participated fully it would be a surprise if he doesn't play in the team's game against the Giants on Sunday.
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.
The 10 tackles were a season-high Burnett, and the interception was his first since Week 14 of the 2014 season. He has averaged 6.5 tackles in the four games he has played in this season, which is more than he averaged per contest last year, but is well off the 8.6 tackle pace he was on when he recorded a career-high 129 stops in 2014.
Ripkowski had just four total touches all season entering Thursday's contest, but he received a few extra opportunities to rack up yards with the Packers thin at the running back position. Ripkowski has been more active the last few weeks -- all eight of his touches came in Weeks 5-7 -- than he was earlier this season, but he remains a bit player in the Packers' offense.
There wasn't much optimism throughout the week that Rollins would be able to play, so the news of his absence from the lineup comes as no surprise. Damarious Randall has also been ruled out, so the Packers will start Ladarius Gunter and Demetri Goodson at cornerback.
Clinton-Dix is picking up the pace in the tackle department, averaging 6.5 stops over the last two games after putting up just 4.3 tackles per game through the season's first three weeks. However, he is still looking for his first interception and sack on the season and has not deflected a pass since Week 1. Clinton-Dix should continue having ample opportunities to make plays moving forward, having been on the field for every defensive snap so far this season.
Davis was a popular waiver-wire target this week with the Packers banged up at the running back position, but he was only able to practice once with his new team prior to Thursday's contest, and did not even enter the game until the fourth quarter. Davis will have some time to get up to speed before the Packers' next game in Week 8 and could see more work, but the team had ample success with Ty Montgomery and others running the ball Thursday, so it seems like a stretch to expect Davis to jump into a prominent role in the backfield even when he does become more familiar with the playbook.
According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com Hyde played all but one snap Sunday with Morgan Burnett (groin) sidelined, and he helped fill the void by leading the Packers in tackles as Burnett often does. Hyde now sits with 14 tackles (11 solo) through three weeks.
Crosby had a decent performance Thursday from a fantasy perspective, but he could have had a better night if not for his first two misses of the season -- an extra point that he pushed, and a field goal attempt that was blocked. While Crosby is no longer batting 1.000 on the season, he has still scored at least eight points in five of his six games, and his average of 8.3 yards per contest places him ninth in the league in scoring, albeit with the rest of Week 7 to go.
Another week, another quiet outing for Rodgers, who has totaled just six receptions for 37 yards in four games since Week 3. He and the Packers will next face off again a Falcons defense that has been routinely beaten by opposing tight ends this season, but Rodgers has averaged fewer than three targets per game in 2016, which suggests he will not see enough passes in his direction to really take advantage of the matchup.
Pennel was suspended for four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. A roster spot was cleared for him after the team released Brian Price. It's unclear how much of a role Pennel will have Sunday, though he'll likely slide in for a few snaps at a minimum.
After a second opinion, Lacy's left ankle suffered more than a sprain, requiring surgery to alleviate the concern. Under the NFL's new rules concerning IR, each team can activate one player from the list during the season, so his recovery will be one to monitor closely in the coming weeks and months. For the time being, the Packers' backfield is ripe with uncertainty. Scooped up from the Chiefs earlier this week, Knile Davis will likely require some time to learn the nuances of the playbook, relegating him to kick-return duties. Outside of Davis, Ty Montgomery has received reps out of the backfield of late, but his pass-catching chops will likely make him a complementary piece to recently promoted running back Don Jackson.
The second-year linebacker had his best game of the season and was on the field for 82 percent of the Packers defensive plays. Ryan has solidified his spot as the starting inside linebacker next to rookie Blake Martinez. He now gets time to rest up as the Packers head into their bye week before Week 5's tilt with the Giants.
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.
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.
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 extent of Jackson's setback is not certain, but he was spotted with ice on his hand during the second half, and his injury was serious enough to prevent him from returning to action. Reports leading up to Thursday's contest tabbed Jackson as the Packers' primary running back in the absence of Eddie Lacy (ankle), but he tallied just two carries before his night was cut short, as the Packers instead turned to receiver Ty Montgomery to handle the bulk of the running back duties. Jackson's status moving forward is uncertain, but with the Packers playing early in Week 7, he will have a few extra days to rest and recover before the next game in Week 8 against the Falcons.
Thomas didn't participate in either of Wednesday's or Thursday's practices, but turns out to be fine and is set to protect QB Cody Kessler's blindside once again.
For at least one night. Rodgers was able to put forth the type of performance that will help silence some of his recent critics. Granted, his impressive yardage was the product of an atypical and unsustainable 56 throws, meaning the All-Pro signal-caller averaged only 5.8 yards per attempt. However, given the makeshift condition of the Packers' backfield, Rodgers responded to having a heavier-than-usual workload placed on his shoulders by finding Davante Adams for a whopping 13 receptions and a pair of touchdowns and Randall Cobb for another 11 catches for 95 yards and a score. Factoring in Ty Montgomery's 10 grabs, Rodgers targeted the trio a total of 44 times, completing 34 of those passes. Surprisingly, Jordy Nelson only saw four looks from Rodgers, as he focused on a short-to-intermediate passing game that worked to near perfection. While Thursday's path to a win was fairly unorthodox from a passing game perspective, Rodgers will try to build on his positive momentum when he and the Packers take on the Falcons in a Week 8 showdown.
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.
Goodson was suspended for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and is finally elligible to return. With Sam Shields (concussion) out, Demarious Randall (groin) questionable, and Quinten Rollins (groin) questionable, Goodson could see immediate action upon his return Sunday.
Cajuste was buried on San Francisco's depth chart, but will likely be a candidate to join the practice squad once he clears waivers.
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.
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.
Fackrell has come alive by recording a sack in each of the last two weeks, and he also had a season-high five tackles against the Giants. The 2016 third round draft pick of the Packers is beginning to take advantage of his opportunities, and he's someone to keep an eye on to see if he'll work his way into consideration for IDP leagues.
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.
Perry was held out of the sack column in Week 6 for the first time this season, but he got back on the board and then some Thursday, adding the first interception of his career. Perry is now up to 5.5 sacks through six games this season.
Banjo injured the hamstring Week 5 and was also sidelined for Week 6's loss to the Cowboys. His next opportunity to return will be Week 8 versus the Falcons, while Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will get the start at safety on Thursday per usual.
With fellow receivers Ty Montgomery mainly playing running back and Jared Abbrederis (thigh) inactive, Janis was the Packers' clear fourth receiver and was on the field for nearly 50 percent of the team's offensive plays. Janis did see a few extra opportunities Thursday, finishing with five targets, but that did not lead to any significant production, and he still has totaled just four receptions for 23 yards on the year. Janis figures to continue seeing a healthy number of snaps as long as Montgomery is working out of the backfield, but he will remain a minor player in the Packers' offense as long as the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart remain healthy.
In the meantime, rookie Corey Linsley will start at center, starting Thursday at Seattle.
