  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Done for season

    Stokes (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Stokes appeared in each of the Packers' last two games since coming off injured reserve in mid-December, but it seems as if his hamstring issue is bothering him once again and he'll now miss the remainder of the season. The 2021 first-round pick has really struggled to stay on the field over the past two years, playing in just 12 of Green Bay's 32 games. Stokes' move to IR likely makes room for Carrington Valentine to start in the Packers' secondary over the next two weeks.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Out Week 17

    Stokes will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Vikings due to a hamstring injury. Stokes was a late addition to the Packers' injury report with a hamstring injury that has been lingering with him for a while. With Jaire Alexander (suspension) also sidelined, Green Bay will be thin at cornerback. Thus, Keisean Nixon and Carrington Valentine are the likely candidates to step up in the secondary.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Will make return Week 15

    Stokes (hamstring) is active to face the Buccaneers on Sunday, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports. Stokes was activated from injured reserve Saturday and will suit up Sunday for the first time since Week 7. In his only game so far this season, the cornerback logged zero defensive snaps and four special-teams snaps before hurting his hamstring. Stokes' return Sunday will provide extra depth in the Packers' defensive backfield with Jaire Alexander missing another contest due to a shoulder injury.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Has no limitations during practice

    Stokes (hamstring) was a full participant during practice Thursday. Stokes is still in the middle of his 21-day window to practice with the team since he was designated to return from IR on Nov. 27. The Packers can activate him to the 53-man roster at any point, but it's not clear if they will do so ahead of Monday's game against the Giants.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Gets green light

    Stokes (foot) has been activated off the reserve/PUP list ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Stokes remains questionable for Week 7 but may make his season debut with the Packers nearly one year after a foot injury ended his second campaign. The 2021 first-round pick figures to work his way back into the swing of things, but that process could be expedited if Jaire Alexander (back) is unable to go.

    Stokes (foot) was logged a limited practice with the Packers on Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Stokes has yet to be activated from the reserve/PUP list, but he continues to log limited practices, which is a positive sign for his chances to be back on the field soon. The cornerback will look to increase to a full participant prior to Sunday's matchup with the Broncos.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Questionable Monday

    Stokes (foot) is listed as questionable headed into Monday night's game against Las Vegas, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports. The 2021 first-round pick out of Georgia has yet to be activated from the reserve/PUP list, but he's been designated to return and has a chance to play Monday. Stokes has been a limited participant during Packers practice all week, and if he's able to suit up, it'll likely take secondary work away from players like Carrington Valentine and Keisean Nixon.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Returns to practice

    Stokes (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday after being designated to return from the reserve/PUP list Tuesday. The cornerback has entered the 21-day practice window before he can move back to the active roster. Stokes tore his meniscus and suffered a Lisfranc injury last November and has been out ever since. The third-year pro started 23 games and made 81 tackles over his first two seasons.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Could miss season opener

    Head coach Matt LaFleur said Thursday that he hopes to get Stokes (ankle) back "as soon as possible," meaning there's a chance he won't be available Week 1 in September, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Stokes, who sustained a season-ending ankle injury in Week 9 of this past campaign, appears to be slowly recovering given coach LaFleur's recent comments that indicated the 24-year-old may not be ready for Green Bay's first matchup later this fall. If Stokes eventually misses any more time, then both Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas would presumably have their hands full at the cornerback position.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Goes to IR with ankle injury

    Green Bay placed Stokes (ankle) on its injured reserve list Saturday. After sustaining an apparently serious ankle injury during the Packers' loss at Detroit in Week 9, Stokes will now be forced to miss at least the next four games as he recovers. Until he's ready to play again, Keisean Nixon should see more work at corner.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Spotted on crutches postgame

    Stokes was seen on crutches and wearing a walking boot on his right foot after being forced out of Sunday's 15-9 loss to the Lions, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. Stokes appears to have suffered a significant injury, as he exited in the first half before being ruled out with an ankle/knee designation. The second-year cornerback played 448 defensive snaps over the first eight games of the season, so his potential absence would be a substantial hit for the Packers' secondary moving forward. It will be worth monitoring Stokes' status heading into next Sunday's game against Dallas.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Injures knee during warmups

    Stokes injured his knee during warmups and is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Stokes has been forced into a full-time starting role during his first season in the NFL, as the Packers have dealt with injuries to Kevin King (shoulder/concussion) and Jaire Alexander (shoulder). King is healthy for Week 10, but Alexander is still on injured reserve. If Stokes is unable to play against the Chiefs, the Packers will have to rely on Rasul Douglas as the starter opposite King, while Chandon Sullivan operates in the slot.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Snags first career interception

    Stokes made eight solo tackles, recorded his first career interception and tallied two pass deflections in Sunday's 27-17 victory over the Steelers. The Steelers went after Stokes a bit on underneath routes, but the rookie held his own and ultimately sealed the game but picking off the final pass thrown his direction. Stokes has taken on a key role in the Packers' defense, and he could play an even more important one in the weeks ahead if fellow cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder) misses any time.

  • Packers' Eric Stokes: Two pass deflections in Week 2

    Stokes recorded a solo tackle and two pass deflections in Monday's 35-17 victory over the Lions. Stokes barely saw the field in Week 1, but he played 77 percent of the snaps Monday, and he was stout after an early coverage mix-up led to Detroit's first score of the night. He figures to continue seeing the field plenty, as per Daire Carragher of Packer Report, Stokes is Pro Football Focus's highest-graded rookie cornerback through two weeks.
