Position Listing
Damarious Randall
Randall (cramping) returned to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Randall briefly exited in the fourth quarter after cramping up. However, he's since returned to the field and assumed his spot with the first-string defense.

Davante Adams
Adams caught 10 of 14 targets for 84 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.

Once again the preferred target with Brett Hundley under center, Adams didn't actually do much of note until late in the fourth quarter. He scored a one-yard touchdown in the closing seconds to send the contest to overtime, followed by a 25-yard score on a bubble screen to clinch the victory. Adams may have to settle for a lesser target share if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns for Week 15 in Carolina, but the last couple months have made it clear that Adams -- and not Jordy Nelson -- is the most effective member of the Green Bay receiving corps at this juncture of their respective careers.

Bryan Bulaga
Bulaga (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Saturday, the Packers' official site reports.

Bulaga tore his ACL in Week 9's loss to the Lions and now his season officially comes to an end with his placement on IR. Look for Justin McCray and recently activated Jason Spriggs to compete for the starting right tackle position for the remainder of the season.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Herb Waters
Waters (shoulder) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve Saturday.

Waters originally hurt his shoulder in minicamp but aggravated the injury in the opening days of training camp. The exact details of the ailment remain clouded, however.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Kenny Clark
Clark had six tackles (four solo), two sacks, and forced a fumble in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Clark returned to action after sitting out the previous week with an ankle injury, and he notched his first two sacks of the season while also forcing a fumble that was returned for a touchdown. Clark doesn't make much noise in fantasy circles, but he plays a key role as the nose tackle in the Packers' 3-4 scheme.

Blake Martinez
Martinez made nine tackles (three solo) in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

Martinez failed to reach double-digit tackles after doing so the previous two weeks, but he still recorded enough stops to move into third in the league with an overall total of 119 tackles.

Jahri Evans
Evans (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports

Evans suffered the groin injury in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, but it apparently isn't a concern heading into the upcoming Week 3 matchup with the Bengals. He should reclaim his role as the Packers' starting right guard.

Trevor Davis
Davis had one carry for four yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Steelers.

Davis' carry was his first touch on offense since he had both a carry and a reception against the Lions in Week 9. He is working as the Packers' primary return man for both punts and kicks, and he's likely to continue playing a bit role at best on offense.

Justin Vogel
No Updates
David Talley
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Jason Spriggs
Spriggs is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers with a hip injury, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Spriggs was a new addition to the injury report this week and was a limited participant in practice Thursday and Friday. The second-year offensive lineman would serve a reserve role if able to suit up Sunday.

Hip - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 at Carolina
Lane Taylor
Taylor (ankle) is active for Monday's game against the Lions.

Taylor hasn't played since injuring his ankle in Week 6. He should now be set to reclaim the starting job at guard from Justin McCray.

Geronimo Allison
Allison caught four passes for 29 yards in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

Allison had caught just two total passes over nine games since a 122-yard effort in Week 3, but he got a chance to see the field more than usual Sunday with the Packers playing catch-up in the second half, and finished with his second most productive game of the season. Despite the increase in snaps Sunday, and the possible return of starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) in Week 15, Allison remains the Packers' No. 4 receiver and a dart throw for fantasy purposes.

Ulrick John
The Packers signed John off the Cardinals' practice squad Tuesday.

John will assume the 53-man roster spot of Kyle Murphy (foot), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. The Packers' preferred starting options at offensive tackle, Bryan Bulaga (ankle) and David Bakhtiari (hamstring), are both in danger of missing Thursday's game against the Bears, which could pave the way for John to play significant snaps right away with his new team. Murphy had previously started all three of the Packers' games and led the offensive line with 219 snaps while Bulaga and Bakhtiari have managed their respective injuries.

Adam Pankey
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.

Michael Clark
No Updates
Mike Daniels
Daniels posted four tackles and a half sack in Sunday's overtime win against Tampa Bay.

Daniels accrued 58 defensive snaps Sunday, more than any other player on the Packers' defensive line. The sixth-year pro is one of the top defensive assets in Green Bay, which is why he plays so much. However, it often doesn't translate to great fantasy performances, making him a risky IDP deployment.

Randall Cobb
Cobb caught all eight of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.

After going without a target the previous week, Cobb finished second to only Davante Adams (14) on Sunday but was forced to settle for short gains besides one 16-yard pickup. Yet to top 60 yards with Brett Hundley under center, Cobb would get a boost if Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) were to return for Week 15 in Carolina. Cobb averaged 5.8 catches for 54.5 yards on 7.8 targets in Rodgers' four healthy games earlier this year.

Justin McCray
McCray (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of reports.

McCray was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Ravens with a knee injury, but after being limited Wednesday and fully participating Thursday, the guard should be good to go for this weekend's matchup with the Steelers.

Ty Montgomery
Montgomery (ribs), who was placed on injured reserve Friday, will undergo wrist surgery in the coming days, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Though Montgomery was ruled out for his third straight game Sunday against the Buccaneers due to the rib injuries before being shuttled to IR, it appears his need for wrist surgery was the primary reason behind the transaction. Montgomery should be fully recovered from both issues by the time training camp commences next summer, but the Packers will be forced to ride out the current season with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams as their primary running backs.

Wrist - Injured Reserve
Vince Biegel
Biegel (hand) underwent surgery to correct a fracture in his foot, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Biegel missed time during the first day of rookie practice due to a hand injury, and it appears he has since aggravated the Jones fracture in his foot that forced him to miss two games at Wisconsin last season. The surgery will keep him out until at least training camp, and he's in danger of missing some time then as well. The team will be hoping he can recover quickly to contribute to the defense early on in the season.

Brett Goode
Goode will sign a contract with the Packers on Tuesday and is expected to serve as the team's long snapper Sunday against the Ravens, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Goode was waived from the team's injured reserve earlier this season after suffering a hamstring injury, but now that he's healthy and eligible to rejoin the squad, he'll take back long-snapping duties. Derek Hart, who snapped for the Packers in their last two games, will be cut loose to clear a spot on the 53-man roster for Goode.

Davon House
House (shoulder) will not play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

House has a chance to play again this season, but it's not surprising that he will sit out this week after suffering a fracture in his back last week and being carted off the field. With House out, Damarious Randall will be the Packers' top cornerback in Week 15, and Josh Hawkins will likely start on the opposite side of the field.

Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Friday. Out for Week 15 at Carolina
Jordy Nelson
Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett doesn't expect the long layoff to impact Nelson's chemistry with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), Wes Hodkiewicz of the team's official website reports.

Nelson completely fell off the map during Rodgers' absence, failing to top 35 yards or score a single touchdown in seven Brett Hundley starts. The 32-year-old wideout undoubtedly is excited for Rodgers to return Sunday in Carolina, but it's fair to question whether Nelson may have permanently lost the No. 1 receiver title to Davante Adams, who overcame Hundley's shaky play to catch 41 passes for 489 yards and four touchdowns the past seven games. Given the extent of his slump, Nelson carries significant risk even with Rodgers back under center.

Donatello Brown
No Updates
Marwin Evans
Evans recorded six tackles across 16 games played in 2016.

Evans barely saw any playing time on defense despite all the injury woes the Packers' secondary endured. Instead, he logged the majority of his snaps on special teams, where he was a mainstay from Week 3 on. With Micah Hyde (shoulder) headed to the open market, Evans figures to have a slight chance of carving out a reserve safety role this summer.

Joe Callahan
Callahan likely will be elevated from the Packers' practice squad to the 53-man roster in the wake of Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone.

As evidence, head coach Mike McCarthy termed Brett Hundley, "my starting quarterback," and Callahan, "the backup" after Sunday's 23-10 defeat in Minnesota. Assuming McCarthy's statement comes true, Callahan will serve as the team's No. 2 QB next Sunday versus the Saints.

Emanuel Byrd
Byrd was waived by the Packers on Saturday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Byrd faced long odds of beating out any of the Packers' three veteran tight ends for a roster spot, and his release confirms that he will not break camp with the squad. He could be a candidate for Green Bay's practice squad, however.

Kevin King
King is scheduled for shoulder surgery Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

King played through this injury for a good chunk of the year, but the rookie reported that his shoulder continued to pop out an inordinate amount of times, so the decision was made to shut him down. There's still no timetable for his recovery or word on whether he'll be ready for OTA's, with more information expected after the surgery is completed.

Shoulder - Injured Reserve
DeAngelo Yancey
Yancey was signed to the Packers' practice squad Sunday.

Yancey had some sleeper value over the summer as a fifth-round pick with the potential to grab the fourth spot on the depth chart in a quality passing attack, but he did not show enough to beat out any of the Packers' veteran receivers. The team liked him enough to keep him around, but for now he is essentially the seventh option at his position.

Joe Kerridge
Kerridge was promoted to the Packers' active roster Saturday.

Kerridge played eight games with the Packers last season and spent some time on the team's practice squad as well. He was then released before the beginning of the 2017 regular season only to return to the practice squad at the end of October. Look for Kerridge to fill a reserve/special teams role behind starting fullback Aaron Ripkowski.

Josh Jones
Jones had eight tackles (five solo) against the Lions on Monday.

Racking up eight tackles makes Monday's performance Jones' second best of the season. The rookie second-round pick played all 68 defensive snaps Monday because Morgan Burnett (groin) was sitting out, and Burnett won't play against the Bears in Week 10, so similar production should be expected from Jones.

Clay Matthews
Matthews had seven tackles (six solo) and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Matthews was back on the field after sitting out the previous week with a groin injury, and he made a significant impact on the game for the first time since Week 2. He is now up to 6.0 sacks on the season, which is one more than he recorded in 12 games in 2016.

Morgan Burnett
Burnett (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Burnett was tagged as questionable heading into Sunday's contest, but given that he was a full participant in practice this week, there was never much doubt surrounding the defensive back's status. Burnett and the Packers' secondary have their hands full Sunday night against the explosive Pittsburgh offense.

Aaron Ripkowski
Ripkowski did not record a carry nor a catch in Sunday's 26-20 overtime victory versus the Buccaneers.

Ripkowski had at least one touch in four straight games entering Sunday's contest, but with Jamaal Williams dominating the backfield work and Aaron Jones returning in action, Ripkowski was back in a fullback-only role for Week 13. As long as Williams and Jones remain healthy, expect Ripkowski to continue working solely as a fullback the rest of the way.

Quinten Rollins
Rollins was placed on injured reserve Monday with an Achilles injury, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Rollins was finally seeing some significant snaps in the absence of top corners Davon House (quadriceps) and Kevin King (concussion) on Sunday before suffering what was initially reported as an ankle injury. The injury has since been clarified as an apparently severe Achilles injury, leaving the Packers to hope House and King can return against the Saints in Week 7.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Izaah Lunsford
No Updates
Lucas Patrick
Patrick (hand) has avoided the inactive list Sunday against the Browns.

Patrick will suit up after fully participating in practice each day this week but shouldn't see many snaps unless there's an injury on the offensive line.

Kentrell Brice
Brice left Sunday's game against the Saints on a cart with what appears to be a right leg injury, Jason Wilde of reports.

Brice hurt his ankle in Week 5 against the Cowboys, but it wasn't anything serious and this likely isn't a side effect of that injury. He's a second-string safety, but with Morgan Burnett (hamstring) inactive, he's been called upon for an increased workload. If Brice can't return, expect Josh Jones to log more defensive snaps.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
Clinton-Dix made six tackles (four solo) and intercepted a pass in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

The interception was Clinton-Dix's third of the season and second in four games. He is up to 69 overall stops on the season, which puts him easily in range to top the 80 tackles he finished the 2016 with.

Mason Crosby
Crosby made three extra points in Sunday's 27-21 overtime victory over the Browns.

Crosby did not attempt a field goal Sunday, which resulted in him finishing with just three points -- his second-lowest total of the season. Crosby could theoretically see his scoring opportunities increase if starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns to action Week 15 against the Panthers, but it's worth noting that the kicker attempted just five field goals in the five games Rodgers finished earlier this season before landing on injured reserve.

Richard Rodgers
Rodgers caught one pass for 25 yards in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Steelers.

Rodgers was the only Packers tight end to catch a pass Sunday night and played more snaps (37) than starter Lance Kendricks (29), according to Rob Demovsky of However, his fantasy impact was still minimal. With just four receptions and 41 yards over his last four games, Rodgers is a dart throw at best for fantasy purposes.

Kyle Murphy
Murphy (foot) will undergo surgery next week, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Murphy was placed on injured reserve last week due to the foot injury, and he's just one of a handful of offensive linemen to miss time for the Packers over the past couple of weeks. In his absence, the team signed Ulrick John off the Cardinals' practice squad.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Taybor Pepper
Pepper (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Pepper hurt his foot in practice Thursday. While the details surrounding his injury aren't clear, his placement on IR suggests it could be severe. Green Bay will now move on to its third long snapper of the season in Derek Hart, who was signed Friday after spending time with the Packers over the summer.

Foot - Injured Reserve
Colby Pearson
No Updates
Jake Ryan
Ryan (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Ryan was a limited participant Thursday and Friday after starting the week not practicing to earn the questionable tag. Joe Thomas would start opposite Blake Martinez at inside linebacker if Ryan is unable to suit up Sunday.

Knee - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 at Carolina
Robert Tonyan
The Packers signed Tonyan to their practice squad Tuesday.

Tonyan, an undrafted free agent out of Indiana State, previously attended training camp with the Lions before being let go in early September. The 23-year-old will offer the Packers additional depth at tight end.

Brett Hundley
Hundley is expected to resume backup duties Sunday against the Panthers with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) confirming Tuesday that he's received medical clearance to play, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Rodgers, who has been practicing since Dec. 2 after recovering from surgery to repair the collarbone on his throwing shoulder, is expected to be formally activated from injured reserve before the end of the week. During the two-time MVP's seven-game absence, Hundley led the Packers to a 3-4 record to keep the team's playoff hopes alive, but he didn't do much to instill confidence that he has a long-term future as a starter in the NFL. He's tossed eight touchdowns against eight interceptions across nine appearances this season while completing 63.8 percent of his passes for a lowly 6.1 yards per attempt. On a more positive note, Hundley excelled at extending drives with his legs, accruing 207 yards and two scores on 28 carries.

Kofi Amichia
Amichia was released by the Packers on Saturday.

The Packers will head into Week 1 with 10 offensive linemen on the roster, but Amichia will not be one of them. His time with the Packers will continue, though, as he was added to the team's practice squad.

Jamaal Williams
Williams took 15 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown and caught all seven of his targets for 69 yards and another score in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.

Williams got off to a fast start when the Browns left him wide open for a 30-yard touchdown on the opening drive. He struggled to get anything going on the ground against an underrated run defense, but he did score a short touchdown on his third try from the one-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Williams ultimately topped 20 touches for a fifth straight week, while Aaron Jones lost two yards on four carries and didn't get any targets. Williams figures to stay busy in a Week 15 road game against the Panthers, regardless of whether Brett Hundley or Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is under center.

Ahmad Thomas
No Updates
Lance Kendricks
Kendricks caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday's victory over the Browns.

Kendricks briefly left Sunday's game after suffering a jaw injury, but he was able to both return to and finish the contest. He saw a season-high five targets against a Browns defense that has been routinely beaten by opposing tight ends this season, but was not able to turn that into any meaningful production, and did not top 11 yards for the fifth straight week. He could become more involved in the offense down the stretch if starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns, but regardless of who is under center in Week 15, don't expect much out of Kendricks against a Panthers defense surrendering just 3.3 receptions and 35 yards to tight ends on a weekly basis.

Joe Thomas
Thomas (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The third-year pro hasn't played since Week 4, a matchup also with the Bears. He left early, though, so it's tough to see how he plays against the Bears' offense. Thomas still hasn't played more than 14 defensive snaps in a game, so it's wise to keep him out of fantasy lineups for the time being.

Triceps - Injured Reserve
Aaron Jones
Jones lost two yards on four carries in Sunday's 27-21 overtime win in Cleveland.

Jones didn't get a touch until overtime the previous week but promptly converted it into a 20-yard touchdown to end the game. There were no such heroics this time around, as Jones barely saw the field while working behind Jamaal Williams, who had 15 carries, seven receptions, 118 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. Jones likely will have to settle for a handful of touches or less in a Week 15 road game against Carolina, as the Packers clearly are pleased with Williams' handling of a massive workload.

Aaron Rodgers
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Wednesday that Rodgers (collarbone) would practice this week in preparation for a return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Rodgers broke the news Tuesday on his personal Instagram account that he received medical clearance from the Packers' team doctor to play this week, paving the way for him to come off injured reserve and reclaim starting duties following a seven-game absence. Though Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relays that Rodgers' surgically repaired right collarbone hasn't completely healed, the quarterback demonstrated enough progress in his recovery while practicing over the last week for the Packers to greenlight his return. Given the nature of his injury and the length of his absence, the two-time NFL MVP might not be in peak form in his return to game action Sunday, but Rodgers at less than full strength still ranks as a far better option under center than Brett Hundley, who led Green Bay to a 3-4 record while Rodgers was out. Per Demovsky, Rodgers won't be eligible to return from IR until Friday, at which time the Packers would have to remove a player from the 53-man roster to create room for the franchise signal caller.

Collarbone - Injured Reserve
Jermaine Whitehead
Whitehead signed a contract with the Packers on Saturday.

Whitehead appeared in two games for the Packers in 2016 and has been on the team's practice squad since being released at roster cutdowns. The 24-year-old takes the roster spot of quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), who was placed on injured reserve. Whitehead could potentially see the field a bit more than typically expected in Week 7 with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring) ruled out and cornerbacks Damarious Randall (hamstring) and Davon House (quadriceps) listed as questionable.

Montravius Adams
Adams (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Seahawks, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Adams was expected to miss about six weeks after having a screw inserted in his foot in late July, and that timetable seems fairly accurate to this point. The 22-year-old was limited in practice this week and will hopefully see increased activity next week.

Devante Mays
Mays didn't play any snaps on offense in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Steelers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

After fumbling on his first two NFL carries the previous week, Mays was merely active in case Jamaal Williams suffered an injury. The Packers used fullback Aaron Ripkowski on some passing downs to give Williams a breather. With Williams doing solid work and Ty Montgomery (ribs) potentially nearing a return, Mays doesn't figure to get many snaps, if any, Week 13 against Tampa Bay.

Demetri Goodson
Goodson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of report.

Goodson was a limited participant in practice this week and is likely to be a game-day decision. The 28-year-old could see an increased role if able to play Sunday with Davon House (back) ruled out, but he's still more likely to see a role on special sucks.

Hamstring - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 at Carolina
Raysean Pringle
No Updates
Jerod Evans
The Packers signed Evans to the practice squad Tuesday.

The addition of Evans will round out the quarterback room in Green Bay in the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). After suffering a foot injury during the Eagles' offseason program, Evans has found himself in an ideal situation for a potential appearance at some point this season, especially if anything befalls Brett Hundley or Joe Callahan.

Jacob Schum
Schum (back) cleared waivers and reverted to the Packers' injured reserve.

Schum had been dealing with a back injury for weeks and was waived Thursday. In his absence, Justin Vogel will take over as the top punter in Green Bay, but the Packers could always bring in someone else for competition.

Back - Injured Reserve
David Bakhtiari
Bakhtiari was absent from Wednesday's injury report, despite receiving stitches on his right thumb during Sunday's game against the Steelers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Bakhtiari was able to play through the issue Sunday, so he wasn't expected to miss any extra time. He'll start at left tackle in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

Kyler Fackrell
Fackrell finished Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Ravens with five tackles (four solo), and his first sack of the season.

Fackrell did his damage across 34 snaps (58.0 percent). His five tackles were also a season high, as he had not recorded more than two previously. If he can log one more sack, the second-year linebacker will match his rookie-season total.

Dean Lowry
Lowry had four tackles (three solo), a sack, and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers.

Lowry had just 17 combined tackles and one sack on the season heading into Week 13, but he made his biggest impact in a game to date and played a key role in the Packers' win. He has started 10 of the Packers' 12 games this year in his second season as a pro.

Nick Perry
Perry (foot/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Perry was a limited participant in practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's win over the Browns. Ahmad Brooks and Kyler Fackrell would see increased workloads if Perry is ultimately ruled out Sunday.

Foot - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 15 at Carolina
Josh Hawkins
Hawkins tallied seven tackles (five solo) in Saturday's preseason victory over the Redskins.

Hawkins is pushing to move up the depth chart at the cornerback position, and he certainly helped his chances Saturday, both in the tackle department, and more importantly, in pass coverage.

Quinton Dial
Dial (chest) is active Sunday against the Browns.

Dial has logged between 24 and 34 defensive snaps in each of the three weeks since returning from a chest injury. He should see a similar role Sunday, spelling Kenny Clark when need be.

Ahmad Brooks
Brooks (back) is listed as active Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Both Brooks and Clay Matthews (groin) are active for the Week 13 tilt, providing a major boost to the Green Bay pass rush.

Jeff Janis
Janis will open the regular season on the Packers' 53-man roster.

The Packers drafted a couple receivers later in this year's draft, but neither of them was able to overtake Janis, and he will have a roster spot heading into Week 1 for the fourth season in a row. He doesn't figure to see much action on offense but is on track to be the team's primary kick returner and also play a key role on other special teams units.

Corey Linsley
Linsley (back) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Packers Director of Public Relations, Jason Wahlers, reports.

Linsley was considered questionable to play after sustaining a back injury in practice Thursday. Fortunately, it seems he'll be able to tough this one out.
