  • Packers' Tariq Carpenter: Removed from NFI

    Carpenter (undisclosed) was participating during Packers camp Thursday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

    Carpenter was placed on the active/NFI list on July 25 but has since had time to move past the issue. The 2022 seventh-round pick appeared in 14 games for Green Bay last season, primarily as a special teamer. Expect the 24-year-old to compete for a depth spot in the Packers' safety room ahead of the coming season in the wake of the offseason departure of Adrian Amos.

  • Packers' Tariq Carpenter: Placed on active/NFI list

    Carpenter (undisclosed) was placed on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Carpenter will open camp on the sidelines as he nurses an undisclosed injury, but he will be eligible to return to practice and play at any point this preseason. Once healthy, the 24-year-old is expected to fill a rotational interior linebacker spot in 2023.

  • Packers' Tariq Carpenter: Expected to play ILB in 2023

    Carpenter has been practicing as an interior linebacker ahead of the 2023 season, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Matt LaFleur indicated Tuesday that Carpenter's shift from safety has been underway for a while, saying he's "been working [at linebacker] all offseason". At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, the 24-year-old may be better suited for his new role. As a safety during his rookie season in 2022, Carpenter logged just 16 snaps on defense while mostly operating as a special-teams option, but that could change in his sophomore campaign.

  • Packers' Tariq Carpenter: Good to go Week 5

    Carpenter (abdomen) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants in London, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

    The rookie seventh-round pick made his NFL debut in last week's overtime win over the Patriots, playing six snaps on special teams. He picked up an abdominal injury coming out of that contest and was limited in practice throughout the week, but he'll be ready to go for the matchup with the Giants. Expect Carpenter to continue to see most of his opportunities on the Packers' coverage units.

  • Packers' Tariq Carpenter: Week 5 status uncertain

    Carpenter (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.

    Carpenter was a limited participant during each practice session this week with an abdominal injury, leaving his Week 5 availability against the Giants in jeopardy. The rookie seventh-round pick amassed just six special-teams snaps in Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Patriots, but Carpenter and Dallin Leavitt are candidates to see increased action in London this weekend if fellow safety Adrian Amos (concussion) is unable to gain medical clearance.
