Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randall hauled in an interception for the second consecutive week in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Randall added three solo tackles to go along with his second interception of the season. He was on the field for 59 snaps (77.0 percent), and whatever issues he and the coaching staff were having earlier in the season appear to be resolved at the moment.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Davante Adams
News
Adams tallied five receptions (on 10 targets) for 54 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 23-10 defeat at Minnesota.

Adams wasn't targeted during the eight snaps logged by Aaron Rodgers before the veteran quarterback was knocked out of the game. Following the news that Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone and may miss the rest of the season, Adams' output is telling as the Packers move forward with Brett Hundley under center, especially because the wideout was shadowed by Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes for much of the contest. Adams has a friendly matchup next Sunday versus the Saints, who gave up 312 yards and three touchdowns to Matthew Stafford this weekend.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Bulaga (concussion) will not return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

The Packers have now lost Bulaga and Lane Taylor (knee) for the afternoon, with David Bahktiari (hamstring) questionable to return. The right tackle exited earlier in the game to be evaluated for a concussion and will now enter the league's concussion protocol.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Herb Waters
News
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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Kenny Clark
News
Clark played 37 of the Packers' 49 defensive snaps (76 percent) in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Clark is expected to see more snaps this season after being on the field for just 32 of the available snaps in his rookie season, and that came to fruition in Week 1. He recorded just one tackle Sunday, but that's not surprising, as he will mainly be counted to help slow down opposing running games.

Blake Martinez
News
Martinez had 11 tackles (eight solo) and a pass deflection in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Martinez left Sunday's game with an injury but he was able to return to action a few plays later, and accumulated enough snaps on the day to reach the 11-tackle mark for the third time in four weeks. He is dominating the snaps at the middle linebacker position for the Packers, so he figures to continue seeing plenty of opportunities to make stops moving forward.

Jahri Evans
News
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
News
Davis did not play a snap on offense but had five punt returns for 70 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

Davis played a few snaps at wide receiver in Week 2 and was technically the Packers' fourth wideout Sunday with fellow receiver Randall Cobb (chest) sidelined, but he did not factor into the offensive game plan. He did make an impact on special teams, though, as he had a 33-yard run among his five punt returns.

Justin Vogel
No Updates
David Talley
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Jason Spriggs
News
Spriggs (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Spriggs has been dealing with a hamstring injury and was not expected to practice again this week. His placement on injured reserve gives the Packers an open roster spot to re-sign Ricky Jean-Francois.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Darrell Greene
No Updates
Lane Taylor
News
Taylor (knee/ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Taylor will have to shift his focus to getting ready for a Week 7 matchup with the Saints. Justin McCray will continue taking snaps at left guard.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Geronimo Allison
News
Allison had one reception for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Allison has been worth stashing in some leagues as a lottery ticket in case of an injury to any of the three receivers ahead of him on the Packers' depth chart, but with quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) sidelined for a lengthy period of time, it remains to be seen if the Packers' passing attack can sustain two regular starters in fantasy leagues, let alone three. As such, those with Allison on their roster may want to take a gamble elsewhere.

Ulrick John
News
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
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.

Michael Clark
No Updates
Mike Daniels
News
Daniels (hip) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

With his hip injury a thing of the past, Daniels will be making his first appearance since Week 2. His return will bolster a Packers run defense that must corral Ezekiel Elliott in order to keep the Cowboys offense in check.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Cobb's production continued to decline, as he saw a season-low three targets and also finished with his fewest catches and yards in a game this year. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers' exit from Sunday's game with a broken collarbone certainly didn't help Cobb's cause, and Rodgers' extended absence certainly won't help him get things on track moving forward. There figure to be some changes with Brett Hundley under center, though without Rodgers, the third receiver in the Packers' passing attack is not as appealing, and Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams will be the top two options as long as they are healthy.

Justin McCray
No Updates
Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery (ribs) had 10 carries for 28 yards and one reception for three yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Montgomery returned to action after missing one game and most of another, and although he lined up in his starting running back spot, he shared the backfield duties with Aaron Jones instead of dominating the workload like he did pre-injury. Montgomery practiced fully all week, but the rib protector he wore Sunday indicated he may not be 100 percent, which could have contributed to his lack of effectiveness. Montgomery figures to get healthier, but with Jones now more of a factor and quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) sidelined, don't expect him to see the number of snaps and touches he received over the season's first several games.

Vince Biegel
News
Biegel (foot) still has major challenges ahead in order to be ready to play Week 1, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Biegel is still eligible to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The worries of Packers' fans are justified when you take into account the history he's had with this foot, including the surgery last season. It's tough to see where he will stand in the depth chart since he only had a few healthy snaps in the offseason program.

Injury
Foot - Physically Unable to Perform
Davon House
News
House (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

House was limited in practice due to what has been a lingering quad injury. His absence, along with that of Kevin King (concussion), will likely force Quinten Rollins and Damarious Randall into the starting lineup against division rival Minnesota.

Injury
Quadriceps - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson reeled in six of nine passes for 60 yards during Sunday's 23-10 loss in Minnesota.

All but one of Nelson's nine targets occurred with Brett Hundley under center due to the early departure of Aaron Rodgers. Because Rodgers' season may be in jeopardy as the result of a broken collarbone, Nelson's stock clearly takes a hit due to the expected drop in quarterback play. During Rodgers' seven-game absence with the same injury in 2013, Nelson averaged 4.6 catches (on 6.9 targets) for 62.4 yards per outing while reaching the end zone just once, signifying the rapport between the long-time Packers.

Donatello Brown
No Updates
Marwin Evans
News
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
News
The Packers elevated Callahan from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

With Aaron Rodgers' season up in the air due to a broken collarbone, Callahan's promotion is likely the corresponding move for the former's placement on injured reserve. Callahan will thus slot in as the backup quarterback behind starter Brett Hundley.

Kevin King
News
King (concussion) is listed as inactive Sunday in Minnesota, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After King was unable to practice all week due to a concussion, his absence doesn't come as a surprise. With Davon House (quadriceps) also out of commission, the Packers defense will entrust third-year cornerbacks Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins with top billing on the outside.

DeAngelo Yancey
News
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.

Ricky Jean Francois
News
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Jean-Francois would be re-signed to the 53-man roster, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The Packers will officially confirm the roster move later Thursday, but Jean-Francois will rejoin the squad after being let go a week earlier after being caught in a numbers game. However, with McCarthy revealing Thursday that outside linebacker Nick Perry would require hand surgery, the Packers were in need of extra reinforcements on defense. Ahmad Brooks will be primarily tasked with replacing Perry's production as a pass rusher, but Perry's absence could indirectly end up opening some reps for Jean-Francois as part of the team's defensive line rotation.

Josh Jones
News
Jones notched three tackles during Thursday's 35-14 victory over the Bears.

Even though Jones wasn't nearly as productive as he was last Sunday against the Bengals, his 51 snaps proved that the expanded role he took on last week wasn't a fluke. Look for him to remain a key figure in the Packers secondary moving forward, with the possibility of him reaching IDP relevance before year's end.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews collected three tackles, including one sack, and a forced fumble during Sunday's 35-14 victory over the Bears.

Matthews became the Packers' all-time sack leader after collecting his 75th sack on a play in which he also forced Bears QB Mike Glennon to lose the ball, only for Jake Ryan to land on top to notch one of Green Bay's four takeaways on the night. Through four weeks, the USC product is on pace to top 50 tackles and double-digit sacks. Furthermore, he's stayed healthy and upright, which is key for the prospects of the entire defense going forward.

Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Burnett did not practice this week after sustaining the hamstring injury during last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Kentrell Brice and rookie Josh Jones should see an increased workload in the absence of the veteran safety.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Aaron Ripkowski
News
Ripkowski had one carry for four yards and one reception for six yards in Thursday's victory over the Bears.

Ripkowski had just one touch through the Packers' first three games, but he doubled that total Thursday after running backs Ty Montgomery (ribs) and Jamaal Williams (knee) left the game. The Packers figure to let Aaron Jones and/or Devante Mays handle the bulk of the running back duties as long as Montgomery and Williams are out, but Ripkowski could get more involved again like he was in 2016, when he totaled 43 touches over the team's final 13 games.

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

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Izaah Lunsford
No Updates
Lucas Patrick
News
Patrick (concussion) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Week 1, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Patrick has presumably cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol and should be ready to go for Week 1.

Kentrell Brice
News
Brice (ankle) wasn't not present on the Packers' injury report Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Brice exited Sunday's game against the Cowboys on the first defensive series of the game, but he eventually returned to play 28 of 74 defensive snaps. The 23-year-old has battled ankle, groin, knee and quadriceps injuries this season, but appears to be fully healthy at this point.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix notched eight tackles and an interception during Thursday's 35-14 victory over the Bears.

After playing every single defensive snap in 2016 and the first 228 snaps of the current season, Clinton-Dix's streak was snapped Sunday, but not due to injury or poor play. Rather, he was sat for the final eight snaps due to the nature of the blowout he had a hand in creating by picking off Bears QB Mike Glennon late in the second quarter to help the Packers to a 21-0 halftime lead. Chicago never came close to getting back into the game after that point. Fortunately for IDP owners, Clinton-Dix could be in store for another productive day in Week 5, when the Alabama product will be a critical factor in Green Bay's odds of slowing down Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott.

Mason Crosby
News
Crosby connected from 26-yards for his only field-goal attempt in Sunday's 23-10 loss to the Vikings.

Crosby also nailed his only extra-point attempt in the contest. Albeit a small sample size, the veteran kicker is seemingly back on track after giving owners a scare with two missed extra-point tries in Week 5, which was likely more of an aberration given his track record. The 33-year-old is now 6-for-6 on field-goal attempts, and 15-for-17 on extra points for the year.

Richard Rodgers
News
Rodgers is listed as the third-string tight end on the Packers' depth chart heading into Week 1.

Rodgers was the Packers' primary tight end two years ago, but he took a back seat to Jared Cook a year ago, and will now play behind two other players this season. As such, expect his fantasy contributions to be minimal.

Kyle Murphy
News
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.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Taybor Pepper
No Updates
Jake Ryan
News
Ryan (concussion/hamstring) logged a full practice Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Ryan was absent for Week 3 after after going down the previous week against the Falcons. The 25-year-old's practice participation indicates he's recovered from his hamstring issue and cleared of the team's concussion protocol. He appears on track to take the field Thursday against the Bears barring any setbacks.

Brett Hundley
News
In relief of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), Hundley completed 18 of 33 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions during Sunday's 23-10 loss at Minnesota. Afterward, head Mike McCarthy said, "Brett Hundley is my quarterback. Joe Callahan is the backup."

The Packers were likely keen to see how Hundley would react to extended action in an actual NFL game, but the situation surrounding his appearance Sunday was less than ideal. Now, with Rodgers' season in the balance due to a broken right collarbone, Hundley is poised to be the starter for the foreseeable future. Hundley's first chance to lead the offense on the Packers' first possession arrives next Sunday against the Saints, who allowed a third 300-yard passer (Matthew Stafford) in five games in Week 6.

Kofi Amichia
News
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.

Don Barclay
News
Barclay (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, the team's official site reports.

Barclay has been unable to regain steam following the ankle injury he suffered several weeks back. If he's cleared by the medical staff, Barclay will have the chance to sign with another team, but the prospect of that happening seems low at the moment.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Jamaal Williams
News
Williams had one carry for one yard in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.

There were snaps up for grabs in the Packers' backfield Sunday with top running back Ty Montgomery (ribs) sitting out, but nearly all of them went to Aaron Jones, who literally ran with the opportunity and racked up 125 yards on just 19 carries. Williams had been Montgomery's primary backup since training camp, but following Sunday's contest it's clear Williams is now the No. 3 back behind both Jones and Montgomery, when he returns.

Lance Kendricks
News
Kendricks caught three passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

Kendricks was shut out on the scoresheet in Week 2, but he made a big impact Sunday, ripping off a 51-yard reception to open the second half and also finding paydirt for the first time as a Packer. He had a far bigger game than fellow tight end Martellus Bennett (three receptions, 12 yards), but Bennett played 67 snaps to Kendricks' 19, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, so don't expect the depth chart to change anytime soon.

Joe Thomas
News
Thomas (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Thomas did not practice for the second consecutive week and has no real timeline for his return at this point. Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan should continue to shoulder to load at inside linebacker for the Packers.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Aaron Jones
News
Jones had 13 carries for 41 yards and one reception for one yard in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Jones dominated the backfield work for the Packers in Week 5 with fellow back Ty Montgomery sidelined, but with Montgomery back in action this week, the duo split the load. Jones did end up with three more touches than Montgomery by the end of Sunday's game, but Montgomery got the start and is still recovering from broken ribs, so that won't necessarily be the case moving forward. The two players figure to continue sharing the snaps in some fashion, but there could be some changes to the Packers' offense with Brett Hundley under center instead of the injured Aaron Rodgers (collarbone).

Derrick Mathews
News
Mathews (concussion) had to leave Tuesday's practice early, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Entering his third season, Mathews has yet to play a regular season snap, so this injury couldn't be more poorly timed. The only way onto the roster for him is with a quick recovery and stellar special teams play.

Aaron Rodgers
News
Rodgers will have surgery to repair a broken right clavicle, but the Packers won't make a decision on his availability for the rest of the season until after the procedure is completed, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The Packers likely will place Rodgers on injured reserve, which would technically make him eligible to return Week 15 against the Panthers. The current tone suggests he's unlikely to actually be available at that juncture, but a return for the playoffs (if the Packers qualify) might be a bit more realistic. Rodgers came back from a broken clavicle after seven weeks in 2013, but that injury was on the left side of his body and didn't require surgery to heal. Brett Hundley will start Sunday's game against the Saints.

Injury
Collarbone - Out for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Jermaine Whitehead
News
Whitehead (hip) was released by the Packers on Saturday.

It's not clear if Whitehead's hip injury is still an issue, but he is healthy enough to remain with Green Bay, and was added to the team's practice squad.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Montravius Adams
News
Adams (foot) practiced in full capacity Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Adams could get his first NFL action Sunday against the Bengals if Mike Daniels (hip) is unable to play. Daniels is listed as questionable, but Adams, a rookie third-round pick, likely will see some action either way.

Devante Mays
News
Mays was inactive for Thursday's victory over the Bears, but his role could expand moving forward if Ty Montgomery (ribs) and/or Jamaal Williams (knee) miss more action.

Mays did not suit up Thursday with Montgomery, Williams and Aaron Jones all in uniform, but with Montgomery and Williams leaving the game with injuries that could cost them time, Mays could move up the depth chart for the time being. His expected role for Week 5 and beyond will be clarified once the return timetables for both injured running backs are released.

Demetri Goodson
News
The Packers have placed Goodson (knee) on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Goodson is still working his way back from the knee injury he suffered late last season, so he will not be available for the first few weeks of the regular season. He did not practice at all during training camp, and he could be out the entire season if he does not make strides over the next couple weeks.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Physically Unable to Perform
Jerod Evans
News
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
News
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.

Bakhtiari aggravated his hamstring injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bakhtiari is unlikely to return at this point as the game enters the closing stages of the final period. Sunday was the 26-year-old's first game action since the season opener, and the Packers are forced to once again shuffle their offensive line with Brian Bulaga (concussion) and Lane Taylor (knee) already ruled out.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Kyler Fackrell
News
Fackrell finished his rookie season with 18 tackles, including 2.0 sacks, a forced fumble, and a pass defensed in 13 games played.

Fackrell didn't see the field much in 2016, playing just 15.6 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps. He showed some promise as a pass rusher and could see an increased role in 2017 if the team loses Nick Perry or Julius Peppers, both of whom will be unrestricted free agents when the league year ends.

Martellus Bennett
News
Bennett had two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Bennett has been on the field frequently this season, but he has not been much of a factor in the Packers' passing attack and is now averaging just over 32 receiving yards per game after six weeks of action. It's difficult to envision his production taking any sort of significant leap with Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) out for an extended period of time, though the Packers' offense could see some changes under new starter Brett Hundley.

Dean Lowry
News
Lowry (knee) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Week 1, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Even though Lowry's knee injury was never considered to be severe, it's still nice to see him practicing in full just four days before the season opener. Barring a setback in practice, he should be set to start Sunday and could be an interesting IDP play going against a weak Seahawks offensive line that likely will devote more attention to Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark than to Lowry.

Nick Perry
News
Perry (hand) posted four tackles (three solo) in Thursday's 35-14 win over the Bears.

Perry returned to the Packers' defensive front Thursday after missing one game following hand surgery, but he played in just 33 of the team's 67 defensive snaps. The team likely was remaining cautious as they eased the linebacker back onto the field, and Perry should see that snap count increase next week as he gets healthier.

Injury
Hand - Limited Practice on Wednesday. Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Josh Hawkins
News
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
News
Dial signed a contract with the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The Packers let go ofBrian Price and brought in Dial to replace him. Dial will rotate in with Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels, but he shouldn't be expected to be a serious fantasy contributor.

Injury
Chest - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Ahmad Brooks
News
Brooks (back) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against Minnesota, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Brooks sat out practice all week and was considered doubtful for Sunday's game. He's been the Packers' top backup at outside linebacker this season. Look for Kyler Fackrell and Chris Odom to see an increase in snaps with Brooks sidelined.

Injury
Back - Questionable for Week 7 vs. New Orleans
Jeff Janis
News
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
News
Linsley (ankle) was cleared to practice for the beginning of training camp on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Linsley had surgery on his ankle in March and ended up facing a much longer recovery than initially thought. He'll now enter camp as the Packers starting center after last years starter, JC Tretter, signed with the Browns in the offseason. If Linsley is limited at all early in camp, look for the team's sixth-round pick, Kofi Amiachia, to see some extra snaps.
