  • Mercilus (biceps) was activated off injured reserve Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. As expected, Mercilus will be available for Saturday's divisional matchup with the 49ers. However, it remains unclear what kind of role the veteran pass rusher will have. He was initially expected to be out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a biceps injury in mid-November, but he's made an improbable recovery. The Packers are also getting Za'Darius Smith (back) back for the playoffs. In corresponding moves, Green Bay released Isaac Yiadom and Jack Heflin.

  • Mercilus (biceps) was designated to return from injured reserve Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Mercilus was initially expected to be out for the remainder of the season after he sustained a biceps injury in mid-November, but he'll rejoin the Packers for practice ahead of the playoffs. Whether he's available for the divisional round remains to be seen, but his return to the practice field is certainly encouraging.

  • Mercilus (biceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Mercilus' move to IR is a formality after it was announced Monday that he was done for the season. He was able to make an impact in a limited time for the Packers, appearing in four games and notching three sacks after joining them on Oct. 21.

  • Mercilus (biceps) will miss the rest of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Mercilus left early Sunday against the Seahawks and was quickly ruled out for the rest of the game. He joined the Packers on Oct. 21 and contributed three sacks in four appearances. The veteran will now focus on being ready for 2022. In his absence, Preston Smith will continue to see extra opportunity, as will Oren Burks.

  • Coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that he's assuming Mercilus (biceps) is facing a long-term absence, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Mercilus was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Seahawks shortly after he went down, and it appears as though he'll miss additional time. Preston Smith saw an uptick in playing time against Seattle, while Oren Burks should also see additional snaps if Mercilus is sidelined.
