Kumerow (shoulder) has not returned to practice Thursday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Kumerow has yet to return to practice, meaning that the Packers have not yet started the clock on his tentative 21-day window to return. Rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown have each earned notable roles in the Packers' receiving corps, so it's likely that the team does not feel pressured to bring Kumerow back unless he returns to full health in a timely manner. Green Bay is only able to bring back one more player from injured reserve following Trevor Davis' activation this week, so Kumerow's chances of playing this season seem to be dwindling.
Head coach Mike McCarthy does not expect Kumerow (shoulder) to return to practice this week, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Kumerow has spent the entire season on injured reserve thanks to a shoulder injury he picked up during the preseason. While it isn't clear where he currently stands in his recovery, McCarthy's lack of optimism regarding Kumerow's immediate availability suggests the receiver still has at least a few more hurdles to clear before gaining clearance to retake the field.
Kumerow was one of a whopping eight wide receivers left standing after Green Bay whittled down its roster to 53 men Saturday, so it was always likely the Packers would make another move before Week 1 to add numbers to a different position group. They'll be able to do that by stashing Kumerow, a preseason standout, on IR after the 26-year-old suffered a sprained SC joint in his shoulder Aug. 17. The transaction means that Kumerow will be sidelined for at least eight weeks with the injury, but it's unclear if the Packers plan to designate him as one of two players eligible to return in the second half of the season. Considering that Kumerow likely wouldn't be in store for significant work in the passing attack once healthy, the Packers could choose to prioritize the designated-to-return spots for a pair of players who might assume more vital roles.
Kumerow (shoulder) did not practice Monday, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
Kumerow suffered a sprained SC joint in his shoulder at the end of an 82-yard touchdown play during the team's second preseason game against the Steelers and has been held out of practice for over a week. The camp sensation has made a strong impression thus far, with six catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in limited preseason action, but he'll need to get healthy sooner rather than later to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.
Kumerow is having tests on his injured shoulder, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Kumerow said the injury is nothing more than a stinger, but he'll apparently need tests to make sure it isn't anything serious. He's already made a strong case for a spot on the 53-man roster, catching six passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns through the first two weeks of the preseason.
