Though he was listed as questionable on the Packers' injury report, Randall was fully expected to suit up Sunday, despite remaining at less than full health while nursing a variety of maladies this season. He'll likely face the tough task of trying to contain Dez Bryant throughout most of the game, a matchup Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott may try to exploit.
And the hits keep coming for the Packers' receiving corps. First, Jordy Nelson suffered multiple rib fractures in the wild-card round and was unavailable Sunday at Dallas. In the latter victory, Adams' left ankle was rolled up on during his final catch of the game. Both wideouts will begin the week of prep with the rehab group, per McCarthy, but a decision on Adams' availability could come down well before this Sunday's kickoff in Atlanta, as it did for Nelson last Friday. Fortunately for Adams, he has a few more chances to buck expectations in advance of the NFC championship game.
Starks has been sidelined entirely since suffering a concussion during a Dec. 12 car accident. At this point, it appears unlikely he'll play again this season, even if the Packers advance beyond Sunday's game.
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.
Jones saw an increased role Sunday with Nick Perry (hand) and Jake Ryan knocked out for portions of the game. His four tackles and 56 defensive snaps are both season highs.
Sandland was drafted in the seventh round of this year's draft, but failed to catch a pass over the course of the preseason, making his release Saturday rather unsurprising.
After he was unable to make the team out of training camp, Waters landed on the Packers' practice squad, from which he's been practicing as a cornerback since Week 2 and identified as a member of the positional group since Week 5. Because Makinton Dorleant (knee) was placed on IR on Wednesday and the statuses of Damarious Randall (knee) and Quinton Rollins (concussion) are up in the air, Waters could play a key role in the coverage schemes during Sunday's wild-card game versus the Giants.
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 injured his knee during last weekend's wild-card playoff game against the Giants, but further medical testing fortunately revealed no structural damage. Given his full participation in Wednesday's practice, he should be ready to roll come Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.
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.
Tretter didn't play a snap on offense or special teams last week despite being active. Thus, he technically still hasn't played since spraining his MCL in late October.
Shield has been on injured reserve since suffering the fifth known concussion of his career in Week 1 of this season. While that has left him unavailable, and likely contemplating retirement, Shields was found with marijuana and drug paraphernalia during an October search of his home on suspicions of drug related activity, WBAY.com reports. Since Shields is involved in an ongoing legal issue, the Packers have refrained from commenting on his situation, but the cornerback is now scheduled for an April 24 plea/sentencing hearing.
Davis played a season-high 36 snaps in Week 8, but with fellow receiver Geronimo Allison added to the mix that week and Ty Montgomery moving back into more of a role at the receiver position, Davis has played just 10 snaps in the three games since. With both Allison and Montgomery ahead of him on the depth chart, as well as four other players, it's unlikely he will make an impact on the offensive side of the ball anytime soon.
Taylor took an inadvertent shot to the hip from TJ Lang last week and was forced to miss his first snap of the season. He likely could've returned to that game had he not gotten hurt with only a minute to play, and he isn't expected to be limited on Saturday.
Allison saw a boost in snaps Sunday with Jordy Nelson (ribs) out, and although he finished fourth on the team in receiving, he did average over 15 yards per reception during Sunday's contest. His role in the Packers' offense for the NFC Championship Game will depend on whether or not Nelson is able to get back on the field.
Daniels had one of his most complete games of the season Monday, notching his first sack in over three weeks and playing in 64 percent of defensive snaps. He'll look to continue this high level of play Sunday against the Texans.
Cobb was an effective cog in a diversified passing game for the Packers on Sunday, one that saw six different players notch receptions. While he didn't quite replicate the spectacular 116-yard, three-touchdown effort he supplied in the wild-card victory over the Giants, Cobb did help make up for the absence of Jordy Nelson (ribs) with his highest amount of receptions since Week 7. He's now notched 12 catches on 15 targets for 180 yards and the aforementioned trio of scores over the first two postseason games.
Montgomery wasn't leaned on as much in the running game as the Packers had hinted he might be during the week, but he proved to be very effective when he did carry the ball. The versatile second-year pro notched a pair of short touchdowns in the second quarter to give the Packers what was a commanding 21-3 lead at the time. He was also a dependable option for Aaron Rodgers in the short passing game, moving the chains on more than one occasion and catching all but one of the seven looks he received. Montgomery now has 11 carries in each of Green Bay's first two preseason games, while also notching nine receptions.
The veteran tight end turned in the catch of the season for the Packers with a 36-yard toe-tapping grab with three seconds remaining, setting up a game-winning 51-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that sent Green Bay to the conference championship. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) sidelined, Cook was Aaron Rodgers' most targeted pass catcher on the afternoon, and also notched his first touchdown of the postseason with a three-yard score early in the third quarter. With 11 receptions on 20 targets for 152 yards in two playoff games, Cook will undoubtedly be a key part of the Packers' gameplan in next Sunday's conference championship showdown against the Falcons.
Nelson has yet to take part in practice since breaking multiple ribs during the Packers' wild-card victory versus the Giants. Predictably, he also missed Sunday's divisional-round win at Dallas. A glimmer of hope arrived early this week, when Nelson finished Monday's regeneration workout and was deemed to have a "slim" chance to play in the NFC championship game, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Continuing onward Wednesday with rehab work isn't exactly the best way for Nelson to kick off the week of prep, but a pair of practices remain for the veteran wideout to make his presence felt.
The Cowboys waived linebacker Jonathan Brown, wide receivers Antwan Goodley and David Porter and and tight end Brandon Barden. They also waived/injured defensive end Kenneth Boatright, running back Michael Hill and offensive tackle R.J. Dill.
Callahan's promotion raises an eyebrow with fellow quarterback Aaron Rodgers slowed by a calf injury, but at this point the roster move seems precautionary, as there has been no indication Rodgers will not play in Sunday's game against the Bears. Callahan will slot in as the Packers' No. 3 quarterback behind Brett Hundley.
Despite being 36 years old, Peppers has continued to produce for the Packers. He pressured Eli Manning repeatedly Sunday and had one of just two sacks for Green Bay. After seeing limited snaps early in the year, Peppers played in 74 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps Sunday. He'll likely continue his increased role throughout the playoffs as he seeks to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in his 15 year career.
Kerridge is an undrafted rookie out of Michigan who has since resided on the Packers' practice squad. While he profiles as a fullback and will thus provide depth for an injury-depleted backfield, Kerridge is unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance in 2016 and was likely promoted to the active roster solely to beef up Green Bay's special teams play, as the unit surrendered a kickoff return touchdown on the very first play Sunday versus the Colts.
Matthews played in 80 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps and played poorly for most of the afternoon. His strip sack of Eli Manning in the fourth quarter was a heads up play, with Matthews being one of the only players on the field who recognized that the loose ball was still live before he recovered it. Other than that play, he wasn't in on a single tackle and didn't do much by way of pass coverage. The season as a whole has been a bit of a let down for Matthews, whose posted career lows in sacks and tackles. He'll look to bounce back against the Cowboys in next weeks divisional round playoff contest.
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.
Burnett is an asset to the Packers' run defense and his absence will be felt. In turn, Josh Hawkins projects see a significant uptick in playing time for the remainder of the game.
Ripkowski made the most of his limited opportunities in Sunday's game, averaging six yards per carry. He tallied 76 total yards on 11 touches in the Packers' regular-season finale, but has totaled just 36 yards on eight touches through two playoff games, so it would seem he has moved back into a complimentary role behind primary running back Ty Montgomery.
Rollins' absence was fully expected, as he remains under the NFL's concussion protocol and was rendered only a limited participant in practices this week. The Packers were already quite shorthanded in the secondary with Sam Shields and Demetri Goodson on injured reserve, but Rollins' absence will propel Ladarius Gunter into the starting lineup.
Clinton-Dix will almost certainly finish 2016 with the lowest tackle total of his career, but he has shown an improved nose for the ball, particularly of late, intercepting five passes over his last seven games after notching just three picks over the first 39 games of his career.
Hyde played every defensive snap in Sunday's game, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and he made a number of key plays in the Packers' victory. Expect him to continue playing a prominent role for the Packers' defense the rest of the way.
Crosby played a starring role in Sunday's contest, nailing a 56-yard attempt with 1:33 left in the game and then eventually connecting on the game winner after Dallas tied the game with just 35 second to go. His two makes extended a streak of made field-goal attempts in playoff games to an impressive 23 in a row.
The touchdown reception came in the first quarter and was Rodgers' only catch of the day, but it gave the Packers the lead for the first time in the game and they did not trail after that. Rodgers will continue operating as the Packers' No. 2 tight end behind top option Jared Cook.
Pennel's served two separate four-game suspensions this season, and after completing his latest punishment, he needed to be activated Monday in order to suit up during the playoffs, but the Packers declined that option by instead releasing him from their roster. In 37 games with Green Bay since 2014, Pennel totaled 40 tackles and one sack.
A resident of injured reserve for much of the season, Lacy appears to be improving steadily through his recovery from surgery on his left ankle. Speaking of the ailment, prior examinations revealed that he suffered damage beyond a mere sprain, but the exact nature hasn't been revealed. The bump from scooter to walking boot is thus the best measuring stick for his standing in the rehab process as he prepares for unrestricted free agency in the offseason.
Ryan's 12 tackles tied his high from the regular season and his three passes defensed are a career high. The lofty numbers by Ryan were put up despite him playing on just 65 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps. He'll look to continue his strong play in the divisional round, where the Packers will take on the Cowboys.
Hundley entered Sunday's game at the 11:46 mark in the fourth quarter with the Packers comfortably ahead on the scoreboard and looking to be cautious with top quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was dealing with a sore calf. That led to the most snaps of Hundley's career, but he was not asked to do much besides hand the ball off with outcome no longer in doubt. Hundley will continue serving as the Packers' backup quarterback moving forward.
Barclay injured his shoulder in pregame warmups prior to last Sunday's game against the Redskins and was limited in practice throughout the week.
Michael led the Packers in rushing in their wild-card win over the Giants, but he was limited to kickoff return duties in Sunday's contest, and did not factor into the game outside of a questionable second-quarter return that left the Packers with a long field and led to a Cowboys field goal. It remains to be seen what role Michael will fill in the NFC Championship Game, but he will be behind Ty Montgomery, and possibly Aaron Ripkowski, on the depth chart.
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.
Mathews has never played in an NFL game and was a long shot to make the Packers' roster. With the team's linebacking corps being as healthy as it is, Mathews was no longer needed as a camp player.
Rodgers added to the burgeoning legend of his storybook 2016 campaign with a superb all-around performance, and yet another completion that defied the odds and set the Packers up for a game-winning field-goal attempt. The perennial Pro Bowler helped Green Bay build a 28-13 lead by early in the third quarter with a pair of scoring throws to his tight ends, hitting Richard Rodgers for a 34-yard touchdown in the first quarter and then finding Jared Cook from three yards out on the first possession of the second half. However, after the Packers defense allowed that edge to evaporate, it was Rodgers to the rescue, first leading an eight-play, 37-yard drive that culminated in a 56-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that snapped a 28-28 tie. After Dak Prescott did a pretty good Rodgers impression on the subsequent drive, which ended in a game-tying 52-yard field goal by Dan Bailey, Rodgers rolled left on third down with 18 seconds remainin and threw across his body 36 yards downfield to Cook, who just managed to keep his feet inbounds and make a spectacular catch. That led to Mason Crosby's 51-yard game-winning field goal as time expired, sending Rodgers to his third conference championship game. Factoring in Sunday's production, Rodgers has now completed 53 of 83 passes for 718 yards with six touchdowns and just one interception in two postseason contests, with what should likely be a high-scoring shootout against Matt Ryan on tap.
Whitehead was just promoted from the practice squad prior to Week 8, so his stint with the active roster was short-lived. The Packers were attempting to add depth to their thin backfield, as they subsequently promoted fullback Joe Kerridge from the practice squad in a corresponding roster move.
Despite logging two full practices this week, Elliott will be sidelined by the hand injury. Elliott's absence may just be a reflection of the Packers' lack of willingness to use an active spot in a playoff game on a depth linebacker who may not be 100 percent healthy.
Goodson missed each of the past two games with a knee injury. His placement on IR created room for the Packers to activate fellow corner Makinton Dorleant to the active roster.
Gunter injured his elbow Saturday versus the Vikings and wasn't able to return to the game. However, his total participation in Wednesday's practice suggests the ailment isn't serious and, barring a setback, Gunter should be fine to play in Sunday's season finale versus the Lions.
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 remains buried on the depth chart at outside linebacker and likely will only see reps on special teams in Week 15.
Lowry was a non-factor for much of the early portion of the 2016 campaign, but his role has increased of late, and he has now recorded a sack in back-to-back games.
Perry missed time in December with a broken hand, but the setback has not slowed him down following his return to action in Week 16, as he has four sacks in four games since.
The Packers were short a receiver Sunday with Jordy Nelson (ribs) sidelined, but Janis was banged up himself coming into the game, and was not part of the offensive game plan. Expect him to continue serving as depth at the wide receiver position while seeing most of his action on special teams.
With starting center J.C. Tretter out several weeks with a sprained MCL, Linsley will be immediately thrust into action as the Packers' starting center. Don Barclay will back Linsley up.
