Position Listing
Alex Light
News
Light (ankle) is fully healthy and has played in both of the Packers' preseason games.

Light was dealing with an ankle injury in late July but has played a combined 40 offensive snaps in the team's first two preseason games. The 22-year-old is fighting for a roster spot as a depth interior lineman for the Packers.

Davante Adams
News
Adams (calf) brought in nine of 12 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 31-23 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Adams showed no ill effects from the calf injury that had limited him earlier in the week, pacing all pass catchers in receptions and yardage on an afternoon when the Packers were missing both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/hamstring). The fifth-year receiver brought in a 12-yard scoring dart from Aaron Rodgers with 9:01 remaining in the fourth quarter, giving him four touchdowns over the season's first five games. With no fewer than eight targets in any contest thus far, Adams retains one of the safest workloads in the fantasy realm heading into a Week 6 Monday night battle against the 49ers.

Marcedes Lewis
News
Lewis played 14 snaps in Sunday's tie with the Vikings but did not catch a pass.

Lewis worked as the Packers' third tight end in their season opener, and he was back in that role in Week 2, as backup tight end Lance Kendricks totaled 27 snaps and top tight end Jimmy Graham was on the field for 58 plays.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Bulaga (knee) is considered questionable for Monday's matchup with the 49ers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Bulaga is nursing a knee injury but the issue is not considered long-term. Still, his status for Monday is likely to be determined closer to kickoff. Byron Bell would presumably replace him at right tackle should he ultimately get ruled out.

Injury
Knee - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against San Francisco, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Breeland was a limited participant at practice this week after being inactive for last Sunday's loss at Detroit. The 26-year-old could see an increased workload if able to suit up and make his Packers debut Monday, as Jaire Alexander (groin) is also listed as questionable.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Kenny Clark
News
Clark recorded four tackles (two solo), a sack and a pass defensed across 55 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Vikings.

The big run-stuffer doesn't reach the quarterback a ton throughout the season, as he now has four career sacks in three seasons. Clark also logged the most defensive reps of the entire defensive line Sunday, playing in 75 percent of the snaps.

Anthony Coyle
No Updates
Blake Martinez
News
Martinez posted nine tackles (six solo), including a sack in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Martinez's first sack of the season was one of seven on Bills quarterback Josh Allen. After averaging nine tackles per game in 2017, Martinez has turned in three straight games of nine tackles for Green Bay, performing well through the first quarter of the season.

Trevor Davis
News
The Packers placed Davis (hamstring) on injured reserve Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Davis first battled the hamstring issue early in the preseason but was able to prove his health before the end of the exhibition slate and earn a spot on the team's final roster. However, it appears he aggravated the injury at some point prior to the Week 1 game against the Bears, resulting in him being one of the team's inactive players for that contest. The Packers either didn't feel Davis was close to making a full recovery from the injury or were satisfied with the existing options at receiving and the return game, prompting the decision to shift him to IR. The third-year player would likely make his greatest impact on special teams if the Packers designate him as one of their two players eligible to return from IR this season.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Jason Spriggs
News
Spriggs is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers with an ankle injury, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Spriggs was added to the injury report Friday and was a limited practice participant the last two days. The Packers could be short on offensive line depth Monday, with starting tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) also listed as questionable.

Injury
Ankle - Did Not Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Korey Toomer
News
Toomer signed a contract with the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Toomer, who was recently let go by the 49ers, provides the Packers with a veteran presence at inside linebacker while the team deals with injury at the position.

Lane Taylor
News
Taylor (ankle) is healthy and participating in training camp Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Taylor sustained an ankle injury in Week 6 last year, undergoing offseason surgery to address the issue. The veteran guard's recovery is great news for a Packers O-line that struggled to stay healthy last season, as well as for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who's coming off a season-ending injury. Taylor should reclaim the starting job at guard to begin the 2018 season.

Hunter Bradley
No Updates
Geronimo Allison
News
The Packers have listed Allison (hamstring) as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Allison appears to be a true game-time decision going into Monday evening. He logged his third consecutive limited practice Saturday, which seems encouraging. Still, the timing of the game renders it a tricky situation for fantasy owners. With Randall Cobb (hamstring) also questionable, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown could both be in line for another healthy workload.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Adam Pankey
News
Pankey was promoted to the Packers' active roster Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pankey takes the roster spot of defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois, who was waived Wednesday in a corresponding move. Pankey turned in a strong preseason and will provide the Packers with depth at both guard and tackle.

Tony Brown
No Updates
DeShone Kizer
News
Kizer completed four of seven passes for 55 yards while temporarily filling in for an injured Aaron Rodgers in Sunday's victory over the Bears. Kizer did not toss a touchdown but did throw an interception and lost a fumble as well.

Kizer held his own immediately after entering the game, marching the Packers down the field into scoring position. However, a careless fumble -- while influenced by pressure from Khalil Mack -- cost the Packers any points, and his interception on the next drive that Mack took to the house gave the Bears a 17-point lead heading into halftime. Kizer has now seen action in 16 NFL games, but mistakes are still clearly an issue. Still, if Rodgers misses any further action, the Packers will have to sink or swim with Kizer.

Mike Daniels
News
Daniels recorded three solo tackles, including one sack, in Sunday's tilt against Chicago.

Daniels and the Packers' defense struggled early on in Sunday's matchup with the Bears, but they stymied the Chicago offense in the second half. Daniels has recorded between 4.0 and 6.5 sacks every season since 2013 and is on pace for a quality campaign once again in 2018.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Cobb was limited once again at Saturday's practice and considered a game-time decision Monday. He has been sidelined the last two weeks, but has voiced optimism regarding his chances to return for Week 6. Unfortunately, the timing of the game makes it a tricky situation for fantasy owners. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown could once again be in for big workloads if either or both of Cobb and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are once again sidelined.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Justin McCray
News
McCray (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

McCray started the week as a limited participant but faced no limitations the past two days, putting him on track to be available Monday. Byron Bell would likely fill in at right guard if McCray suffers a setback.

Injury
Shoulder - Full Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery had four carries for 15 yards and one reception for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Montgomery played his customary complementary role Sunday, filling in for fellow backs Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones in both running and passing situations. Montgomery received at least four carries for the fourth straight game, but finished with more receiving yards than running yards for the fourth time in five games this season. He has generally been the third option in the Packers' backfield since Jones made his season debut in Week 3, but he played a season-high 29 snaps Sunday and has totaled at least 20 plays each week this season, and it's likely he will continue rotating into the backfield mix with Jones and Williams.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling
News
Valdes-Scantling brought in seven of 10 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' 31-23 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

The rookie had been unable to do anything with extended playing time over the prior two games, but that changed in a contest with a script that greatly benefited the rookie's production. The Packers were down both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/hamstring) on Sunday, and they then fell behind by a 24-0 score relatively early. Those conditions set up perfectly for the passing game, leading to a career day for Valdes-Scantling. With his first productive game under his belt, Valdes-Scantling will look to remain productive against the 49ers in a Week 6 Monday night battle, although his target share would naturally suffer if either or both of his aforementioned injured teammates made it back for that contest.

Tramon Williams
News
Williams made a quick impact during Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, notching a tackle and an interception for a touchdown.

Williams made a big play early in Thursday's contest, picking off Steelers rookie quarterback Mason Rudolph on his first pass of the game and taking it to the house. The veteran cornerback graded out well in coverage last season and returns to Green Bay as a projected 2018 starter, though it remains to be seen who'll line up opposite him come Week 1.

Davon House
News
House (shoulder) will undergo surgery Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

House was originally placed on injured reserve by the Packers on Sept. 25 and with this news, is most likely done for the season. The eight-year pro suited up in three games for the Packers this season, recording just two tackles (one solo).

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Raven Greene
No Updates
Josh Jackson
News
Jackson had one solo tackle, returned an interception for a touchdown, and added a 41-yard punt return in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Jackson showed the playmaking ability that made him a second-round pick in April's draft. He figures to open as the Packers' fourth or fifth cornerback, but he'll have a chance to make an impact in his rookie season.

Equanimeous St. Brown
News
St. Brown caught three passes for 89 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

St. Brown saw meaningful snaps Sunday for the first time in his career -- 60 of them, to be exact -- and although the bulk of his yardage came on a 54-yard reception with the game relatively over, he still more than held his own. St. Brown's effort could earn him more work moving forward, though snaps could be hard to come by when Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring/concussion) return. If nothing else, though, Sunday's game does at least indicate that St. Brown is ahead of fellow rookie J'Mon Moore -- who had 14 snaps Sunday -- on the Packers' depth chart.

Oren Burks
News
Burks will play in Sunday's game against the Redskins but will primarily be used on special teams, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

The rookie was cleared for full practice this week after Burks missed the first two games of the season with a shoulder injury. However, it appears the Packers aren't willing to throw Burks back into full action immediately, which is somewhat surprising given that he is listed as a starter on the team's depth chart. Nevertheless, expect Burks to have a chance to make a significant impact on defense once Week 4 rolls around.

Kendall Donnerson
No Updates
Antonio Morrison
News
Morrison, who has been impressive throughout training camp, has a chance to make the 53-man roster, Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official site reports.

According to the report, Morrison's strengths align nicely with newly minted defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's system. Morrison seemingly has positioned himself to make a strong case for a roster spot with 53-man cuts looming. Even if he makes the team, however, it's likely Morrison will be of most service on special teams.

Kevin King
News
King (chin) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

King injured his chin in Week 5's loss against the Lions, but looks on track to suit up against the 49ers on Monday night. He should slot in at starting cornerback opposite Tramon Williams.

DeAngelo Yancey
News
Yancey agreed to sign with the Packers' practice squad Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Yancey was originally cut by the Packers on Sept. 1 after spending all of the 2017 season with the team. The Green Bay receiving corps is banged up with Davante Adams (calf), Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) all dealing with injuries. If any of the three miss Sunday's game against Detroit, Yancey could be a candidate to join the active roster.

Joe Kerridge
News
Kerridge (shoulder) played nine offensive snaps in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Kerridge has been dealing with a shoulder injury that sidelined him for the preseason opener last week, but he was good to go for Thursday's contest. The 25-year-old will likely have to unseat Aaron Ripkowski at fullback if he is going to earn a spot on the Packers' 53-man roster.

Josh Jones
News
Jones (ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Bills.

Jones was limited in practice all week but will suit up nonetheless to provide Green Bay with depth in their ailing secondary. Kevin King (groin) is out for the contest, while the recently signed Bashaud Breeland won't be ready to go yet either.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews recorded five tackles (three solo) and 0.5 sacks across 37 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bills.

The veteran reached the quarterback for the first time this season after spending the past few weeks in the limelight for controversial roughing the passer calls. The past two weeks Matthews has seen a decline in defensive snaps, in larger part due to several small injuries, which makes him a borderline IDP selection at best.

Jaire Alexander
News
Alexander (groin) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Alexander was a limited practice participant this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Lions. Bashaud Breeland (hamstring) is also listed as questionable but could make his Packers' debut, otherwise Tony Brown could be set for an increased snap count.

Injury
Groin - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Lucas Patrick
News
Patrick (back) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Patrick will work in a reserve role in Week 5.

Deon Simon
News
Simon was signed to the active roster Wednesday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Simon was with the Jets for the entire preseason but didn't survive final roster cuts ahead of the season opener. He takes the roster spot of Brian Winters (abdomen), who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Kentrell Brice
News
Brice (ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Lions.

Brice will continue to start at strong safety for the Packers. He made 21 tackles (16 solo) and one sack through the first four games. Expect him to log a hefty workload again, but his inconsistencies on the stat line makes him a tough IDP play.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix posted two tackles (both solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Clinton-Dix's two tackles represented his lowest output of the season, but his sack was his first of the year. He hasn't had more than 0.5 sacks in a season since 2015, when he had three. He'll look to maintain his strong play as the Packers aim to get back above .500 next week against the 49ers.

J'Mon Moore
News
Moore played 14 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Lions but was not targeted.

Moore suited up Sunday for the second week in a row, and had an opportunity to see some work with fellow receivers Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/hamstring) both sidelined. However, he worked as the fourth option behind Davante Adams and fellow rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, so he ended up with only minimal chances to contribute. Moving forward, consider Moore sixth on the Packers' depth chart at the wide receiver position behind all other players -- when healthy -- mentioned here.

Mason Crosby
News
Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested Crosby will keep his job, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "He's got to make those kicks," McCarthy said. "He's a proven highly successful kicker, and I believe in him but he's got to make those kicks."

Crosby missed four field goals and a PAT in Sunday's 31-23 loss to Detroit, but he did at least rebound with a successful 41-yarder on his final attempt of the afternoon. The Packers have stuck with him through some rough stretches in the past, but it will be hard to justify the loyalty this time around if he doesn't bounce back with a decent performance Week 6 against the 49ers.

Kyle Murphy
News
The Packers placed Murphy (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.

Murphy left the third preseason game with an ankle injury, but it didn't look serious at the time. His absence will affect the team's depth on their offensive front.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Muhammad Wilkerson
News
Wilkerson (ankle) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, according to his personal Instagram.

Wilkerson was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he broke his ankle in Week 3 against the Redskins. He'll now begin the rehab process in hopes of being full recovered for the beginning of next season.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Tim Boyle
News
Boyle, an impressive surprise throughout the preseason, is expected to make the 53-man roster, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

The Packers offered Boyle a vote of confidence following the decision to ship Brett Hundley off to Seattle. Boyle's impressive preseason appears to have placed the league on notice with multiple reports surfacing suggesting that Boyle would be claimed off waivers should the Packers opt to waive the 23-year-old. With a surge of added value over the past month, Green Bay reportedly feels inclined to keep Boyle around for the time being.

Jake Ryan
News
Ryan was carted off the field during Monday's practice after suffering a potentially serious knee injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Ryan spent several minutes on the ground and was ultimately unable to put much weight on his injured right leg, so the possibility of a severe issue is evident. The inside linebacker had been working with the first team next to Blake Martinez, while Ahmad Thomas and Oren Burks got most of the second-team work. Additional updates regarding Ryan's injury should be available within the next few days.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Tra Carson
News
The Packers signed Carson to their practice squad Tuesday, according to the Packers' official site.

Carson was waived/injured by the Bengals in late September with a hamstring injury, but appears to be fully recovered. He'll provide running back depth in case one of Green Bay's running backs suffers an injury.

Robert Tonyan
News
Tonyan caught four passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against the Chiefs.

Tonyan put himself in position to break camp with the Packers this preseason, totaling eight receptions for 61 yards and two scores. Whether or not he sticks around will likely depend on whether the Packers elect to keep four tight ends, or if they opt to keep Tonyan as the No. 3 tight end over veteran Lance Kendricks.

Jamaal Williams
News
Williams had six carries for 33 yards and two receptions for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Williams did not get much going Sunday, but his opportunities were limited with the Packers needing to pass frequently with them well behind on the scoreboard most of the day. Williams was narrowly outproduced by fellow running back Aaron Jones on Sunday, but he still led all Packers running backs with 33 snaps, as Jones was on the field for just 22 plays while Ty Montgomery played 29. There has been much discussion about getting Jones more carries, and that could certainly happen -- at Williams' expense -- should game flow dictate that in the coming weeks. However, Williams is always going to have some sort of role given his pass protection skills, and the Packers seem comfortable rotating all their running backs in an effort to keep them fresh for the duration of the season.

Lance Kendricks
News
Kendricks caught two passes for eight yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Kendricks caught two passes for the second week in a row and found paydirt for the first time this season. He continues to work as the Packers' No. 2 tight end behind Jimmy Graham and ahead of Marcedes Lewis, but with averages of just one reception, six yards and 22 snaps per game this season, he's not doing enough to help fantasy players.

Jake Kumerow
News
The Packers intend to place Kumerow (shoulder) on injured reserve Monday, Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Aaron Jones
News
Jones had seven carries for 40 yards and two receptions for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Jones was explosive on a per-touch basis Sunday, but with the Packers playing catch-up throughout the contest, fellow running backs Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery -- both more effective in the passing game -- saw the bulk of the snaps in the backfield, with Williams on the field for 33 plays, Montgomery 29, and Jones just 22. Jones will have a chance to see more work in Week 6 if the Packers can jump out to a lead against the 1-4 49ers, but the other two backs figure to be involved in some degree one way or another, considering the 49ers have surrendered the second most targets and receptions to opposing running backs.

Aaron Rodgers
News
Rodgers (knee) is officially absent from the Packers' injury report for Monday's matchup with the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

There was originally concern for Rodgers' status after he admitted to suffering a minor setback with his MCL sprain in last week's lost to the Lions. However, he logged a full session at Friday's practice, so this news is relatively unsurprising. Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are both considered game-time decisions, so Rodgers could once again be short-handed at receiver.

Jermaine Whitehead
News
Whitehead (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead was a limited participant at practice this week after sitting out Week 5. The 25-year-old averaged 26 defensive snaps in his previous four contests, and if inactive his role would likely be filled by Josh Jones.

Injury
Back - Limited Practice on Saturday. Questionable for Week 6 vs. San Francisco
Montravius Adams
News
Adams totaled two tackles (one solo) over seven games during his rookie season of 2017.

The Packers were certainly hoping for more from Adams after selecting him in the third round, but an offseason foot injury slowed his progress and deemed him essentially a non-factor in his first year as a pro. As long as he is healthy, Adams will get a chance to play a bigger role in his sophomore campaign.

Keon Hatcher
News
Hatcher signed with the Packers' practice squad Tuesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Hatcher has spent the last two offseasons with the Raiders, and while he made the 53-man roster this year, he ended up being cut after Week 1 in order to create a roster spot for Martavis Bryant. He'll now join a practice organization that is riddled with injuries at wide receiver, but Hatcher likely won't get promoted to the active roster unless the situation at the position becomes dire.

Jimmy Graham
News
Graham (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Graham returned without any limitations after getting a maintenance day to start the practice week. He's locked in as one of the more reliable options at tight end, heading into a Week 6 matchup with the 49ers on Monday Night Football. The Niners have surrendered four touchdowns to Graham's position in five weeks, despite facing three teams (DET, LAC, ARI) that have barely used their tight ends in the passing game. San Francisco did limit Kyle Rudolph to one reception (a touchdown) in the season opener, but Travis Kelce went off for 114 yards a couple weeks later. It remains to be seen if Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison will return from hamstring injuries to provide Graham with more competition for Aaron Rodgers' attention.

Tyler Lancaster
News
Lancaster was signed to the Packers' active roster Saturday.

Lancaster was previously on Green Bay's practice squad after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern. Running back Darius Jackson will be released to create Lancaster's roster spot.

David Bakhtiari
News
Bakhtiari (ankle) will play in Thursday's game against the Steelers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Bakhtiari spent time with the first team this week after suffering an injury over a week ago. He's expected to start, but he likely won't see extended action.

Kyler Fackrell
News
Fackrell recorded four tackles (all solo), including three sacks, in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

Fackrell had five career sacks through 29 games entering Sunday's matchup with Buffalo, making his three-sack performance more than a little surprising. He's been a backup through his first two NFL seasons, but he could start to see more action if he can maintain his quality play from Week 4. He'll look to stack success as the Packers head to Detroit in Week 5.

Reggie Gilbert
News
Gilbert signed a contract with the Packers on Friday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gilbert was waived at roster cutdowns in September and has spent the last two years on the Packers' practice squad. The 24-year-old is likely to have a role on special teams, but defensive snaps should be available Saturday with Nick Perry (ankle) listed as doubtful and Clay Matthews (hamstring) questionable.

Dean Lowry
News
Lowry is expected to start during Sunday's game against the Bills, Wes Hodklewlcz of the Packers' official site reports.

Lowry will slot in as Green Bay's starting left defensive end, taking the place of Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) who is out for the season. The 6-foot-6, 296-pound Lowry has every opportunity to earn a season-long starting role if he can show well in Week 4. Lowry started 11 games with Green bay last season, in which he accumulated 32 tackles and two sacks.

Nick Perry
News
Perry (ankle) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

Perry was a limited participant at practice this week but the Packers apparently aren't too worried about his availability for Monday. The 28-year-old should take on his usual workload against San Francisco.

Byron Bell
News
The Packers expect Bell to start at right guard Sunday against the Bills, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Bell would be replacing Justin McCray (shoulder) with the first-unit. McCray's injury is not expected to keep him sidelined long-term, but Bell could see a big role in the immediate future. He suited up for 12 games in Dallas last year but saw just two starts.

Will Redmond
News
Redmond (ankle) was waived/injured by the 49ers on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 2016 third-round draft pick failed to rehab from an ankle issue this preseason after missing all of last year with a significant knee injury. The 49ers could reclaim Redmond and place him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers Saturday.

Corey Linsley
News
Linsley (back) has played in both of the Packers' preseason games thus far.

Linsley was dealing with a back injury in June, but he's played 13 and 17 offensive snaps in the first two preseason games, respectively. The 27-year-old will continue to work as the Packers' starting center.
