Valdes-Scantling caught two of three targets for 133 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 42-24 win over Oakland.
Valdes-Scantling managed to draw just three targets even with Davante Adams (toe) out and Geronimo Allison (chest) injured. It's hard to imagine how he could have done much more with his opportunities, however. His first haul was a 59-yard shot downfield to open the second half and set up an Aaron Rodgers touchdown run. He did it all himself midway through the fourth quarter, taking a quick out-cut the distance for a 74-yard score. The statuesque sophomore came into Sunday with an impressive 14.9 yards per reception, and that's now up to 19.8 yards per catch. Next up is a Chiefs defense that has been solid keeping opponents in front of them, ranking 11th-best in the league with 10.8 yards per catch allowed.
Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Less than a week removed from playing through multiple injuries versus the Lions, Valdes-Scantling will be available to the Packers offense, despite logging no practice reps. Per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Valdes-Scantling was seen with his left ankle wrapped and an electronic stimulation machine on his left knee Friday. The combination of rehab and a successful pregame workout Sunday has given Valdes-Scantling the all-clear to suit up. In a receiving corps without Davante Adams (toe), Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison (concussion) have the highest standing among the team's available wideouts.
The Packers are optimistic that at least one of Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) will be active for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but the team will evaluate both in pre-game warmups before deciding on the status of either receiver, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Though both receivers are listed as questionable, Valdes-Scantling may have the better chance at playing after Allison was only upgraded from doubtful Saturday. If Valdes-Scantling does end up suiting up, his effectiveness could be limited by the injury to some degree, but even a compromised version of himself may be enough to lead the Packers' receiving corps minus top target Davante Adams (toe) in Week 7.
Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Davante Adams (toe) is ruled out and Geronimo Allison (chest/concussion) is listed as doubtful. Valdes-Scantling is left as the team's only starting wide receiver with a decent shot to play, but he acknowledged earlier Friday that he still needs more medical treatment before Sunday's 1 p.m. EDT kickoff. He's shaping up as a true game-time decision after missing practice each day this week.
Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) hinted that he'll likely be a game-time decision Sunday against Oakland, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Valdes-Scantling noted that he's hopeful additional treatment will allow him to gain clearance for Sunday's game. The receiver's own assessment supports recent comments from coach Matt LaFleur, who ruled out Davante Adams (toe) but noted that the Packers still have two more days to evaluate Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison (chest/concussion). None of the three was able to practice in any capacity this week, but it sounds like Valdes-Scantling and Allison at least have some shot to play. MVS mentioned that his ankle and knee injuries are equally troublesome, noting that he made it through Monday's loss to the Lions on adrenaline. The Packers will release their final Week 7 injury report later Friday.
Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) isn't practicing Friday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
The same goes for Davante Adams (toe) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest), potentially leaving the Packers without their top three wide receivers for Sunday's game against Oakland. The final injury report will be released later Friday.
Valdez-Scantling (ankle/knee) didn't practice Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Valdez-Scantling suffered undisclosed ankle and knee injuries when he was rolled up on during Monday's last-second victory against the Lions. While he was compromised, health-wise, he still played 77 percent of the snaps on offense en route to two receptions (on two targets) for 48 yards. The Packers' receiving corps is littered by injuries this week -- also, Davante Adams (toe), Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Robert Tonyan (hip) -- so whoever suits up could have plenty of opportunity to produce against the Raiders' 22nd-ranked pass defense.
Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Valdes-Scantling had his legs rolled up on during Monday's win against the Lions, but he toughed it out and still logged 77 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps by the end of the game. His production left something to be desired with Davante Adams out for a second consecutive contest -- two catches (on two targets) for 48 yards -- and Valdes-Scantling's own health now is a question mark. At the moment, the team's top three wide receivers (Geronimo Allison has a concussion) are dealing with injuries, which spurred the Packers to sign Ryan Grant on Wednesday.
Valdes-Scantling caught both his targets for 48 yards and also rushed once for nine yards in Monday night's 23-22 win over the Lions.
Valdes-Scantling brief exited the game after getting his legs rolled up on during the first half, but he re-emerged after the half to reclaim his place in the lineup. The speedster's most notable contribution came on an impressive 46-yard, contested catch to start the fourth quarter -- his third reception of at least 40 yards this season. Although he hasn't broken out as a high-volume target with Davante Adams (toe) sidelined, Valdes-Scantling at least made the most of his looks Monday and avoided a health scare that probably won't impact him for Week 7's meeting with the Raiders.
Valdes-Scantling (calf/hamstring) upgraded to full practice participation Friday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Meanwhile, Davante Adams (toe) sounded pessimistic Thursday and missed another practice Friday. It appears Valdes-Scantling is headed for another game as the Packers' No. 1 wide receiver when they play host to the Lions on Monday.
Valdes-Scantling was limited in Thursday's practice by hamstring and calf injuries, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Since he was selected in the fifth round of the 2018 draft, Valdes-Scantling has been active in all 21 possible games. The fact he fit in some reps is a good sign that he'll be available again Monday versus the Lions. Assuming he avoids the Packers' list of inactives, Valdes-Scantling is expected to serve as the team's No. 1 wide receiver with Davante Adams (toe) trending toward another absence.
Valdes-Scantling caught one of four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 34-24 win over the Cowboys.
The Packers' passing game didn't have much to do with Aaron Jones dominating the offense, but MVS still failed to do much with the volume he did get. He's now had two poor performances in a row since Davante Adams (toe) was injured, and Valdes-Scantling may not have earned enough trust from Aaron Rodgers yet to simply step into the team's No. 1 receiving role.
Valdes-Scantling secured three of seven targets for 47 yards in the Packers' 34-27 loss to the Eagles on Thursday.
Valdes-Scantling had a modest stat line overall, and he was the intended target on Aaron Rodgers' ill-fated final pass of the night. The second-year receiver saw the Eagles' Craig James get his hand on the ball and tip it, sending it into the arms of Nigel Bradham for a game-clinching interception. It was an underwhelming night overall for Valdes-Scantling, who had put together a season-high 6-99-1 line in Week 3. The 24-year-old will look to bounce back in a Week 5 showdown against the Cowboys a week from Sunday.
Valdes-Scantling caught six of 10 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-16 win over Denver.
Valdes-Scantling's biggest moment came during the game's opening drive when a Denver offsides gifted Aaron Rodgers a free play. Rodgers cranked one deep into the waiting arms of Valdes-Scantling for a 40-yard score. The play capped the Packers' best drive of the game as the team's two other touchdowns came on short fields caused by turnovers. The Packers continue to struggle to keep things going in the second half, though Valdes-Scantling's big-play ability, which led him to finishing 16th in the league with 15.3 yards per reception in 2018, remains valuable as he doesn't necessarily need sustained drives to produce results.
Valdes-Scantling had three receptions for 19 yards in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.
Valdes-Scantling led all Packers receivers in receiving yards Week 1, but he did not do much Sunday despite seeing the same six targets he received in the opener. While Valdes-Scantling had a quiet day and fellow receiver Geronimo Allison scored a touchdown, the snap counts from Sunday signal that Valdes-Scantling is clearly the Packers' No. 2 option at the wide receiver position: he was on the field for 65 of the 75 offensive plays the Packers ran Week 2, while Allison was on the field for 34 of them, and the No. 4 and No. 5 receivers, Jake Kumerow and Trevor Davis, combined to play just 10 snaps.
Valdes-Scantling brought in four of six targets for 52 yards and rushed once for no gain in the Packers' 10-3 win over the Bears on Thursday.
Valdes-Scantling dealt with some cramping during the second half, but that was preceded by a key 47-yard second-quarter grab that set up the only touchdown of the night for either team. The 2018 fifth-round pick is expected to take a significant leap forward in Year 2, with both his talent and the opportunity to serve as a starting receiver in an Aaron Rodgers-helmed offense expected to key his improvement. Valdes-Scantling will look to build on his season-opening numbers when the Packers face off with the Vikings during a Week 2 battle a week from Sunday.
Valdes-Scantling (cramps) returned to Thursday's game.
Valdes-Scantling exited the game in the fourth quarter with cramps, but made an appearance on the Packers' final drive. Given cramps are usually a temporary issue, his practice status for the coming week should not be threatened, especially with a long week ahead.
Valdes-Scantling is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Bears with cramps.
Valdes-Scantling has paced the Packers in receiving so far Thursday, recording four catches for 52 yards while rushing once for no gain. One of his four catches was a 47-yard deep ball from Aaron Rodgers, by far the longest offensive play of the night in a game where both offenses have struggled. Valdes-Scantling will aim to get hydrated and return for the conclusion of the fourth quarter.
Valdes-Scantling did not catch a pass in Thursday's preseason loss to the Ravens, but he was in the starting lineup when the game began, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic.
Valdes-Scantling has not had a ball thrown his way through two preseason games, but he also has not played more than a few drives, so the goose egg is seemingly mostly due to a lack of opportunities. More important for the long run: Valdes-Scantling has started both preseason games, and is listed in the starting spot on the Packers' depth chart opposite Davante Adams. Valdes-Scantling has not officially locked up a starting job -- fellow wideout Geronimo Allison was also on the field for the first play Thursday with the Packers utilizing three receivers -- but one way or another, he will be in position to play a key role when the regular season gets underway.
Valdes-Scantling was not targeted in Thursday night's 28-26 preseason win over the Texans.
Valdes-Scantling was actually thrown to deep on Green Bay's very first offensive play, but the incomplete pass was voided by a holding call. The promising second-year wideout hardly featured afterward, but figures to get more work as the preseason slate unfolds.
