Muhammad Wilkerson: Suspension lifted
Wilkerson had his suspension lifted by the commissioner Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Wilkerson hasn't played in the league since 2018, when he suffered a season-ending ankle injury with the Packers. Given his injury history and off-the-field issues, it's tough to determine whether the 30-year-old will garner much attention from teams, but given the need for players in 2020, nothing can be ruled out....

Muhammad Wilkerson: Another DWI arrest
Wilkerson (ankle) was arrested in New Jersey earlier this week and charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Wilkerson was previously arrested on a DWI charge last June, and he may now be required to serve an NFL suspension following a second such incident. The veteran defensive end last took the field in 2018 with Green Bay, appearing in three games before suffering a season-ending broken ankle that required surgery. He's presumably healthy now, but his ongoing legal trouble may hurt his chances of getting another NFL opportunity anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Muhammad Wilkerson: Arrested for DWI
Wilkerson (ankle) was arrested Saturday for driving while intoxicated, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Hoping to stay in Green Bay
Wilkerson (ankle) intends to re-sign with Green Bay ahead of the 2019 season, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. "I like it here a lot," Wilkerson said. "I came here to prove that I can play at a high level and that was cut short. But that's how the game goes sometimes. I definitely want to get another shot to show what I can do."
Wilkerson, who signed with the Packers this past offseason, only lasted three games before fracturing and tearing "most if not all... of [the] ligaments" in his left ankle. There remains no timetable for his return to the field. It's possible Green Bay could get him at a discounted price tag this time around, making his re-signing a low-risk, high-reward proposition given Wilkerson's past production as a pass rusher....

Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Undergoes successful surgery
Wilkerson (ankle) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, according to his personal Instagram.
Wilkerson was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he broke his ankle in Week 3 against the Redskins. He'll now begin the rehab process in hopes of being full recovered for the beginning of next season.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Placed on IR
The Packers officially placed Wilkerson (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.
Wilkerson underwent a surgical procedure on the ankle he broke in last week's loss to the Redskins, so it was only a matter of time before he was placed on IR. It is unfortunate for the veteran lineman, because he signed a one-year, $5 million contract in the offseason with the goals of returning to the Pro Bowl form he displayed earlier in his career and securing one last big contract. He will spend the remainder of the season recovering and looking ahead to next year. Montravius Adams will presumably see his role on the line increased as a result.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Out for the season
Wilkerson (ankle) will miss the rest of the season, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Signed to a one-year, $5 million contract this offseason, Wilkerson managed just five tackles and no sacks in three games with the Packers. He reportedly suffered a broken ankle in Sunday's loss to Washington that ultimately required surgery, with the possibility of additional damage around his foot/leg. Montravius Adams and Dean Lowry will take on larger roles along the defensive line for Green Bay.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Has procedure on ankle
Wilkerson (ankle) had a surgical procedure in the Washington, D.C. area after suffering a significant injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It isn't a good sign that Wilkerson stayed behind in Washington rather than traveling back to Green Bay with his teammates. The Packers haven't provided any kind of timeline, but this sounds like something that will probably lead to a multi-week absence even if it isn't a season-ender. Wilkerson has just five tackles and no sacks in three games with the Packers, after signing a one-year, $5 million contract during the offseason. His probable absence should free up more snaps for Montravius Adams and Dean Lowry.... See More ... See Less

Wilkerson will not return to Sunday's game against the Redskins due to an ankle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Wilkerson was taken to the hospital after suffering the injury, Rapoport also reported. The 2015 All-Pro seems to have suffered a significant injury, though details remain undisclosed. Expect an update on Wilkerson's health shortly following Sunday's game.... See More ... See Less

Wilkerson (groin) participated in practice Sunday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

Packers' Muhammad Wilkerson: Battling groin injury
Wilkerson did not participate in Tuesday's practice due to groin soreness, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Fortunately for the Packers, Wilkerson's injury isn't being viewed as a serious one, and the veteran defensive end is likely just getting the day off as a precautionary measure. Despite coming off back-to-back down seasons following an All-Pro 2015 campaign, Wilkerson is expected to start on the defensive line in Green Bay alongside Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark....
