Packers' Geronimo Allison: Big gain in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison caught two of three targets for 29 yards in Thursday night's 26-13 preseason loss to the Ravens.

Allison hauled in a 22-yard strike from DeShone Kizer on a third-down play that helped set up Green Bay's opening field goal. Despite not featuring for long, Allison's long reception ensured his impact was felt, which bodes well as he and Marquez Valdes-Scantling push for starter's snaps alongside Davante Adams this season.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Plays sparingly in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison played eight snaps on offense in Thursday's preseason opener, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, but did not catch a pass.

Allison was able to take the field for the first time since last October, but he played sparingly while the Packers evaluated other receivers. Allison is competing with several receivers for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Davante Adams, and nothing notable in the competition occurred Thursday. The Packers' next two preseason games -- in which quarterback Aaron Rodgers is likely to see action -- could shed more light on how the Packers' receivers will line up in Week 1.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Playing slot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison appears headed for a slot role, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling is working as the No. 2 outside receiver on the starting offense at mandatory minicamp, while Allison is playing the slot in three-wide formations. Coach Matt LaFleur hinted at using Allison inside earlier this offseason, though the 25-year-old played 77.6 percent of his snaps outside in five games last year. It won't be ideal for Allison's fantasy value if he comes off the field when the Packers use multiple tight ends, but a role as the No. 3 wide receiver still would put him on the field for the bulk of the team's passing plays.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Could replace Cobb in the slot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison completed his recovery from core muscle surgery and is excited to get a look in multiple roles under new coach Matt LaFleur, ESPN.com's Rob Demovksy reports. "You don't want to be in a one-position role; that's limiting yourself," Allison said. "I feel confident where I'm at. I'm still able to do the same things I could before the injury."

Allison bounced back strong from season-ending surgery in November and re-signed with the Packers on a one-year, $2.8 million contract that includes a $750,000 signing bonus. He might've received a multi-year offer sheet from another team if he'd accepted his restricted free agent tender for $2.025 million, but he preferred to stay with the Packers and bet on himself to earn a much larger contract next offseason. The approach makes sense given that Allison posted a 20-303-2 receiving line in five games last season, including four straight weeks above 60 yards to start the year. With Randall Cobb off to Dallas and no replacement signed, the Packers figure to host an open competition for all the receiver spots behind Davante Adams. The 25-year-old Allison likely will open training camp on the first-team offense, with his experience playing both outside and inside improving his odds to lock down a key role. His lanky build is atypical for a slot receiver, yet 24 of his 55 career receptions (44 percent) have come from the inside (per ESPN Stats & Info).

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Back with Pack for another year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers and Allison reached an agreement on a one-year contract Friday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

The Packers tendered Allison as a restricted free agent Wednesday, giving the team the "right of first refusal" on any offer he may have received. While the tender equated to $2.025 million, this new deal increases his guaranteed money and includes incentives. As the receiving corps stands, Allison is the No. 2 option behind Davante Adams, with second-year and unproven players littering the rest of the depth chart. Allison hasn't produced much in 30 games with the Packers, but his peripherals (13.8 YPC, 8.3 YPT and 60.4 percent catch rate) indicate he'll produce at least modest results with increased volume.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Tendered by Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers tendered Allison a contract for the 2019 season Wednesday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Allison was a restricted free agent who would have hit the open market had Green Bay not tendered him before the start of the new league year. Now locked in with the Packers for another season, Allison is a top candidate to enter the upcoming offseason program as the team's No. 2 wideout behind Davante Adams.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Ready for offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (groin) said he will be 100 percent healthy for the start of voluntary workouts in early April, Jim Owczarski of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Allison had season-ending surgery in November to repair a core muscle injury, with his recovery timeline estimated at six weeks. He also dealt with a concussion and a hamstring injury earlier in the season, finishing with a 20-303-2 receiving line on 30 targets in just five appearances. While the per-game production is promising for his 2019 outlook, the 25-year-old may need to battle for playing time this summer, assuming he's still with the Packers. Allison is scheduled to become a restricted free agent, and his status as an undrafted player (2016) means the Packers will need to extend a second-round tender ($3.095 million) to ensure he isn't poached. The team has until March 13 to make a decision.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Done for 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (groin) won't be eligible to be activated from injured reserve this season after the Packers designated wideout Jake Kumerow (shoulder) to return from IR on Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After bringing back fellow receiver Trevor Davis from IR last week, the Packers used their second and final designation on Kumerow, a preseason standout who seems to be near full health. While Allison projects to be close to 100 percent before the end of 2018, he was never an ideal candidate to return from IR since he wouldn't have been eligible to play until the postseason. Allison shouldn't face any restrictions when the Packers reconvene for OTAs next spring.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers placed Allison (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday.

The IR move means Allison won't be available for at least eight weeks after he underwent surgery to address a core-muscle injury, ending any possibility of him playing again before the regular season concludes. Allison could be a candidate for activation during the postseason should the Packers qualify, but the team would first have to designate him as one of its two players eligible to return. His absence for the entire back half of the Packers' schedule paves the way for rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling to handle a regular role in three-receiver sets alongside Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Slated for surgery, out at least six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison is expected to undergo surgery on a core muscle injury, which will include a recovery timetable of six weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After an examination by Dr. William Meyers, it was determined Allison will require a procedure to treat the lingering injury, per Rob Demovsky. The development comes on the heels of coach Mike McCarthy stating Monday that Allison has a significant injury. Allison is a candidate to be placed on injured reserve following surgery, but such a roster move would ensure he won't play again until Week 17, at the earliest. In his stead, the Packers will continue to roll with Marquez Valdes-Scantling as the No. 3 wide receiver.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: May require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike McCarthy indicated Monday that Allison (groin) is dealing with a significant injury and could be out for an extended period of time, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Rob Demovsky of ESPN relays that Allison may require surgery, but it isn't clear if the receiver is expected to miss the remainder of the season. In any case, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling figures to become an even more prominent figure in the Packers offense in the immediate future.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (groin/hamstring) was downgraded from doubtful to out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Allison has been marred by a concussion and hamstring issue over the last month and then the groin injury cropped up this week. Rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling has shown a solid rapport with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in recent weeks and should take on a larger role against the Patriots with Allison again sidelined.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Doubtful for Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers will list Allison (groin/hamstring) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

After missing games in Weeks 5 and 6 with a concussion and hamstring injury, Allison returned to action in the Week 7 loss to the Rams, making one reception for 14 yards while playing 30 offensive snaps. The wideout looked poised to see his role expand this weekend, but those plans were thwarted when the lingering hamstring issue limited his involvement at Wednesday's practice before he developed a groin injury during Thursday's session. It's unclear what exactly he was able to do Friday, but Garafolo's report indicates the Packers likely weren't encouraged by what they saw from Allison. If the 24-year-old is ultimately misses his third game of the season Sunday, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling would likely be in store for a starting assignment along with regular snaps in three-wideout sets.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Now dealing with groin injury as well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (hamstring) injured his groin at Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "We'll see where he is [Friday]," McCarthy said, when asked about Allison's status.

Allison was listed as a limited participant Thursday with a lingering hamstring injury, but it's possible he injured his groin after practice started. His status for Week 9 against the Patriots is murky at best now that he's dealing with the two setbacks, though it's worth noting he returned from a two-game absence due to a concussion and the same hamstring issue to play in Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Rams. His participation at Friday's practice -- or lack thereof -- should provide a clue toward his availability for the weekend. If Allison is unable to go, that would likely result in more snaps for rookie wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and/or Equanimeous St. Brown.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

It's been an injury-plagued month for Allison, who overcame a concussion but picked up a hamstring injury along the way. After missing two games and benefiting from the Packers' Week 7 bye, he took the field this past Sunday versus the Rams, ranking third among Packers wide receivers in offensive snaps (30 of 52) behind Davante Adams (40) and rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling (31) and ahead of Randall Cobb (24). This may indicate Allison is in a rotation for reps with Valdes-Scantling and Cobb, but the breakdown may also have stemmed from the two veterans coming back from injuries. Cobb joined Allison as a limited participant Wednesday, a reality that could result in a similar workload for the duo Sunday at New England.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Quiet in first action since Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Allison returned to action Sunday after missing the previous two games and finished with his lowest output of the season by far, as his previous low-yardage game in 2018 still saw him post 64 yards. Much of that was due to a lack of opportunity: he was targeted 11 times in his last appearance Week 4, but his reception was the only pass thrown his direction Week 8. While Allison and fellow wideout Randall Cobb missed time the last few weeks, Marquez Valdes-Scantling emerged as a viable receiver for the Packers, and although he was targeted just five times Sunday himself, he did cut into Allison's playing time, finishing with 31 snaps to Allison's 30. Allison remains a starter on the Packers' depth chart, but Valdes-Scantling figures to continue seeing opportunities, which likely will cost Allison some of the snaps and targets fantasy owners were accustomed to him receiving earlier in the season.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (hamstring) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Rams, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Allison never quite made it back to full participation in practice, but the Packers nonetheless decided to remove him from the final injury report. Meanwhile, fellow wideout Randall Cobb (hamstring) is listed as questionable, despite logging a full practice Friday. Coming out of a bye, Aaron Rodgers likely will have his full group of pass-catching weapons for the first time since Week 3 against Washington. Marquez Valdes-Scantling figures to slide back to a minor role.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Expected back vs. Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that he expects Allison (hamstring) to play in Sunday's game against the Rams.

Even though Allison was just a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, McCarthy said that Allison is "on course to play" this weekend after being sidelined for the last two games. With fellow wide receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) also in line to return this weekend, the Packers are expected to have their offense back at full strength for a big matchup in Los Angeles. This likely means that the roles of rookie wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown will be scaled back, although it appears they have earned the trust of quarterback Aaron Rodgers even if that means lesser roles.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Limited on first injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Allison missed back-to-back games ahead of a Week 7 bye and apparently is still having some trouble with his hamstring. The long layoff should give him a decent chance to return, but it's still a situation that bears monitoring ahead of Sunday's road game against the Rams. A return to full participation Thursday or Friday would inspire confidence regarding Allison's Week 8 availability. Fellow wideouts Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Equanimeous St. Brown were also limited at Wednesday's session.

Packers' Geronimo Allison: Practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allison (hamstring) is participating in Tuesday's practice, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Before the Packers' Week 7 bye, Allison had missed the team's last two games while recovering from a concussion and hamstring injury. Allison was cleared from the concussion protocol nearly two weeks ago, but it was the hamstring injury that limited his involvement throughout the Packers' Week 6 practices and ultimately kept him on the inactive list for the team's eventual 33-30 win over the 49ers. Thanks to the fortunate timing of the bye week, it appears Allison has moved past the hamstring injury, though it won't be known until Wednesday's practice whether or not he has resumed participating in a full capacity. Along with Allison, Randall Cobb (hamstring) was also on the field Tuesday, making it likely the Packers will have their full group of wideouts available Sunday against the Rams for the first time since Week 3.
