Breeland is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a groin injury.
Breeland exited Sunday's game against Miami late in the fourth quarter, so if he's unable to return to the field it won't necessarily reflect on the severity of his injury. As long as Breeland remains sidelined, expect one of Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Jaire Alexander to serve as the team's top kick returner.
Breeland recorded eight tackles (four solo) and returned two kicks for 43 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Breeland made his Packers debut Sunday and filled a dual role, starting at cornerback and inheriting the kick return duties from the departed Ty Montgomery. Breeland was on the field for 96 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps, which indicates he will continue playing a key role for the team moving forward.
Breeland (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation going into Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Breeland practiced in limited capacities all three days this week and is expected to play Sunday. The Clemson product's role is a tad up in the air as he hasn't played since signing with Green Bay before Week 4. In addition, Jaire Alexander (groin) looks to resume his large role in the secondary.
Breeland signed with the Packers prior to Week 4, and has not seen the field this season. If Breeland does return Sunday, it's unclear what sort of role he will have, especially with fellow cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin) expected to play as well. While Breeland looks on track to play Sunday, expect a definitive report from the Packers later in the week.
Breeland has yet to play in a game since signing with the Packers prior to Week 4. The cornerback was questionable coming into Monday, and with Green Bay on bye next week, Breeland will have a chance to make his debut against the Rams in Week 8.
