Kumerow caught three passes for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Kumerow busted out for 68 yards and a touchdown in Week 16, but he did not come close to replicating that showing in the regular-season finale. Kumerow showed some promise during the preseason, but he spent most of the campaign on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and only suited up for the Packers' final five games. He could get another chance to show what he can do in 2019, but he will likely have to earn his way onto the roster for a second year in a row.
Kumerow caught all three of his targets for 68 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 44-38 overtime win over the Jets.
The Packers were scoreless as the first half was winding down when Kumerow ran a flag route and caught a lofted Aaron Rodgers pass and cut up field for a 49-yard touchdown. The rookie more than doubled his reception count for the season during the game and just about quintupled his yardage. It's hard to tell if this is the start of something or just a blip for Kumerow. If the former, he'll have a so-so matchup against a middle-of-the-road Lions defense next Sunday.
Kumerow (hand) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Jets.
Kumerow was a full participant at practice Friday and likely won't be limited much if at all by his hand injury. He could see a slightly increased role in the offense as the No. 4 receiver while Randall Cobb (concussion) is inactive.
Kumerow (hand) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, tTom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Kumerow began the week as a limited practice participant but was able to practice fully Friday, though it wasn't enough to shake the questionable tag. Veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb remains in the concussion protocol and is considered doubtful, which could open up some additional snaps for the 25-year-old.
Kumerow was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a hand injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Kumerow saw a season-high 21 offensive snaps in last Sunday's loss to the Bears and apparently sustained the hand injury at some point. The 26-year-old's participation at practice suggests the injury isn't overly serious, but he'll likely need to practice fully by Friday to avoid an injury designation. Veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb is currently in the concussion protocol, and his potential absence could provide an increased opportunity for the likes of Kumerow.
