Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randall (concussion) has yet to clear through the league's concussion protocol.

Given the nature of head injuries, it's tough to establish a clear timeframe for a return. The team doesn't expect to have Randall back this week, which is a fairly strong precursor that he could be out for longer than expected. As for now, it's more of a wait-and-see approach with Kevin King filling in.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Robert Leff
News
Leff signed a contract with the Packers on Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Leff was released last week by the Falcons but it didn't take him long to find a new home. An undrafted rookie free agent, Leff played in 53 games for Auburn over four years, starting at right tackle all 13 games last season.

Davante Adams
News
Adams caught two of three targets for 26 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles.

Adams moved the sticks with an 18-yard catch during the first quarter, but his involvement was understandably limited to three series to start off the exhibition slate.

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 is poised for an elevated workload in 2017 due to Letroy Guion's four-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Along the Packers' defensive front last season, Mike Daniels was the workhorse, earning 64.3 percent of the defensive snaps, while Guion (43.5) and Clark (32.5) were the only other D-lineman to surpass 20 percent. With Guion out of commission for the first quarter of the upcoming campaign, Clark is the candidate to earn an uptick in work, potentially blowing away his season high (42 percent in the NFC championship game) regularly from week to week. If the preceding comes to pass, Clark, a 2016 first-round pick, should build upon a 21-tackle rookie year.

Blake Martinez
News
Martinez recorded 69 tackles, including a sack, and four passes defensed, including an interception, while playing in 13 games in 2016.

The Packers' fourth-round pick in 2016, Martinez stepped up as a starting middle linebacker who often was in charge of calling the defense. A sprained MCL limited him in a few games and forced him to sit out three tilts. He appears to be a promising young player for a defense that struggled on the year, finishing the season ranked 22nd in total defense.

Jahri Evans
No Updates
Trevor Davis
News
Davis returned two punts for 94 yards, including one he took back for a 68-yard touchdown, in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

Davis did not haul in either of the two passes directed his way, but he made a big impact on special teams, racking up significant yardage on both his punt returns. Davis is competing for a roster spot during training camp thanks to the Packers' deep receiving corps, and he would help his chances immensely if he proves to be the top option for the punt return job.

Geronimo Allison
News
Allison has been suspended for the first game of the 2017 regular season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Allison's suspension stems from a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, which occurred during a traffic stop in September of 2016. He'll still be able to participate in training camp and all of the Packers' preseason games, but he won't be able to suit up Week 1 versus the Seahawks. The No. 4 spot on the depth chart at wide receiver is up for grabs heading into training camp, but Allison will likely be the favorite to fill that role. Jeff Janis could see additional snaps Week 1, however, while Allison serves the one-game suspension.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 2 at Altanta
Adam Pankey
No Updates
Michael Clark
No Updates
Mike Daniels
News
Daniels recorded 33 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, and a pass defensed in 16 games played in 2016.

Daniels has consistently been the Packers best defensive lineman for the past few years. He was a key cog in a Green Bay run defense that ranked eighth in the NFL and he was the best pass rushing lineman on the team. He hasn't sat out of a game in the past four seasons and will look to continue his run of consistently good play in 2017.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb brought in both of his targets for nine yards in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins.

Cobb saw action on the Packers' successful 15-yard, 75-opening drive, doubling his reception total from the preseason opener. The slot man extraordinaire is looking to bounce back after an injury-riddled and sub-par 2016, and the team has announced its intentions to refocus on getting him the ball more often. He and the rest of his teammates on the starting offense should see a healthy amount of snaps in next Saturday's preseason contest against the Broncos.

Derek Hart
News
Hart has landed on the Packers' injury report due to an illness, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Hart is attempting to win the role as the Packers' long snapper. He in competition with Brett Goode, who re-signed with the team during the offseason, so a quick return to practice figures to be advantageous for his chances.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Justin McCray
No Updates
Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery (leg) didn't suit up for Saturday's preseason matchup with the Redskins, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Montgomery is dealing with a vague lower-body injury that prevented him from taking part in practice this week. Jamaal Williams should take over as the No. 1 tailback in his absence, with Devante Mays and Aaron Jones rotating in afterward.

Injury
Leg - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Malachi Dupre
No Updates
Vince Biegel
News
Biegel (foot) has yet to return to practice following his May surgery, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

There were some rumbles earlier this week that Biegel could return to the practice field, but coach Mike McCarthy shut those down Tuesday. As for now, the rookie linebacker is still on the team's Physically Unable to Perform list but has been making decent-sized strides. The expectation is that Biegel will be able to at least practice before the regular season, but nothing is a given at this point in time.

Injury
Foot - Physically Unable to Perform
Brett Goode
News
Goode has signed a contract with the Packers.

Goode served as the Packers' primary long snapper from 2008-16, including last season when he appeared in 143 regular-season games and 14 playoff matchups. While the team decided to bring in a new punter and long snapper this offseason, which is why Goode was let go this spring, Derek Hart has struggled in training camp, so Goode should have every opportunity to reclaim his special-teams gig with Green Bay.

Davon House
News
House did not practice Monday due to a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The severity of the ailment is unknown, but it's definitely something to keep an eye on as the days progress, considering House projects as a starter in the Packers secondary this coming season.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson hauled in both of his targets for 19 yards in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins.

Nelson notched his pair of receptions on back-to-back plays during the Packers' opening 15-play, 75-yard scoring drive, getting the ball into Redskins territory with an 11-yard catch before grabbing a quick eight-yard pass on the right to move the ball to the Washington 33-yard line. The veteran is slated to once again play an integral role in the team's high-powered offense in the coming campaign after having posted 97 receptions and 14 touchdowns last season, both representing the second-best totals of his career in those respective categories.

Donatello Brown
No Updates
Christian Ringo
News
Ringo signed his exclusive-rights free-agent tender from the Packers on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The Packers signed Ricky Jean-Francois in free agency to account for Letroy Guion's upcoming four-game suspension, but Ringo will surely be a part of the mix more often, at least during the first quarter of the 2017 campaign . After spending his rookie year on the practice squad in 2015, Ringo appeared in eight games last season, yet he earned just 7.3 percent of the defensive snaps and two snaps overall on special teams, which translated to two solo tackles and one forced fumble. A modest increase in usage is unlikely to impact his relevance in the IDP realm.

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.

Montay Crockett
No Updates
Josh Letuligasenoa
No Updates
Joe Callahan
News
Callahan completed 10 of 16 passes for 103 yards in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles. He did not record a touchdown nor an interception in the contest.

Callahan's numbers don't jump off the page, but he looked plenty capable of running the Packers' offense Thursday, albeit in the second half of the first preseason contest. Callahan is fairly locked into the third spot on the depth chart at his position, so whether or not he opens the season on the active roster will depend on whether the Packers decide to head into Week 1 with two or three quarterbacks.

Emanuel Byrd
No Updates
Aaron Taylor
No Updates
Kevin King
News
King (shoulder) practiced Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

The coaches have been pleased with King throughout training camp so far, and they're looking to get him even more reps against two-time MVP Aaron Rodgers. It won't be easy to receive playing time, though. Free-agent signing Davon House has been playing almost exclusively with the first team, and Quinten Rollins was highly praised by cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt for the improvements he has made this offseason. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, King still has the ability to be a lockdown corner, so it'll be interesting to see how the Packers' defensive back situation unravels going forward.

DeAngelo Yancey
News
Yancey led all Green Bay skill-position players with 31 offensive snaps in Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The wealth of playing time seemingly confirms that the fifth-round rookie is on the roster bubble, potentially competing with Trevor Davis, Max McCaffrey and fellow rookie Malachi Dupre (undisclosed) for one roster spot. Yancey certainly made his case in Thursday's game, hauling in three of four targets for a team-high 67 yards. McCaffrey had three catches for 60 yards on seven targets, while Davis went without a catch on two targets and Dupre left early with a potentially serious injury. Yancey is one step closer to a roster spot.

Joe Kerridge
News
Kerridge logged 20 offensive snaps across eight games played in 2016, rushing once for zero yards.

Kerridge went undrafted out of Michigan last spring before heading to Washington for training camp. He didn't survive final cuts though and ultimately wound up on the Packers' practice squad in early October. However, he was promoted to the active roster in November when the team needed running back depth and subsequently played in every game from Week 10 on, primarily on special teams. Now set to hit free agency once again, he'll likely land somewhere that's not Green Bay considering the team's starting fullback, Aaron Ripkowski, is under contract for another two years.

Ricky Jean Francois
News
Jean-Francois signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Packers on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Jean-Francois visited a few teams after being cut by the Redskins last week before signing with the Packers. He had a career-high 32 tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in 2016, and he'll likely see significant playing time along the defensive line with Green Bay.

Josh Jones
News
Jones (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fortunately, the injury that Jones sustained Tuesday doesn't appear to be serious after he returned to practice following the one-day absence. Unless Jones suffers any setbacks, the Packers' rookie is expected to continue working his way into a bigger role.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews will not require surgery on the shoulder injury that afflicted him during this past season, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Matthews separated his left shoulder after taking a borderline hit from Eagles guard Allen Barbre during Green Bay's Week 12 win. Although Matthews didn't miss a game because of the problem, it noticeably impacted his playing time and production, evidenced by his mere one sack through the Packers' final five regular-season outings. Fortunately, though, Matthews won't require surgery this offseason, which should enable him to participate in OTAs and minicamp, thus avoiding having to rehab instead.

Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett finished the 2016 season with 93 tackles, including 3.0 sacks, and nine passes defensed, including two interceptions, in 15 games played.

Burnett was one of Green Bay's best defenders in 2016, playing in 91.9 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers moved Burnett around more than in past seasons and Burnett responded with a career high in sacks while posting the second best passes defensed and interception numbers of his career. The Packers finished the season ranked 22nd in total defense and 31st in pass defense, and they'll look to improve around Burnett and bounce back in 2017.

Aaron Ripkowski
News
Ripkowski rushed 34 times for 150 yards and caught nine passes (on 10 targets) for 46 yards while scoring three touchdowns in 16 games played during the 2016 regular season.

Ripkowski played 15 games as a rookie last season, earning just one touch along the way, but after the team's primary ball-carrying options fell victim to injuries this year, the former sixth-round pick enjoyed an expanded role. Despite played the fullback position, Ripkowski proved to capable running between the tackles and catching occasional passes as well. While his lost fumble during Green Bay's NFC championship defeat will surely leave a sour taste in his mouth, Ripkowski can take pride in the role he carved out this season.

Quinten Rollins
News
Rollins underwent groin surgery at the end of last season, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Rollins' surgery doesn't appear to have any lasting effect on his availability. Rollins was also notably dealing with concussion-like symptoms at the end of last season's playoff run. Assuming he suffers no setbacks in either regard, Rollins should be a full go for offseason work.

Jordan Tripp
News
Tripp left Saturday's preseason contest in Washington to be checked for a concussion, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Tripp isn't set up for many defensive snaps with Jake Ryan (shoulder), Blake Martinez and Joe Thomas all at inside linebacker, along with Clay Matthews occasionally shifting inside as well. Tripp is expected to slot into the lineup as a specialist when healthy.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Kentrell Brice
No Updates
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix's fifth-year option was exercised by the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Picking up Clinton-Dix's fifth-year option was an easy decision for Green Bay after the safety played 99.9 percent of defensive snaps for the Packers in 2016 and was named second-team All-Pro in just his third season. Clinton-Dix is now under contract through the 2018 campaign.

Mason Crosby
News
Crosby made a 39-yard field goal and all three of his extra-point attempts in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

Crosby is adjusting to a new snapper and holder during training camp and had some trouble making kicks in the Packers' scrimmage a week ago, but he had no such issues Thursday. He is the only kicker in camp for the Packers and will open the season handling all the team's kicking duties.

Richard Rodgers
News
Rodgers (finger) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins.

Rodgers, who missed out on the preseason opener due to a fractured finger on his right hand, seems to be healthy again and should step in as the No. 3 tight end behind Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks.

Kyle Murphy

Colby Pearson
No Updates
Jake Ryan
News
Ryan (shoulder) finished the 2016 season with 82 tackles and three passes defensed while playing in 14 games.

Ryan went from playing in 24.7 percent of defensive snaps as a rookie in 2015 to playing 54.1 percent of snaps this past season. He improved as a coverage linebacker, defending three passes (plus three more in the playoffs) after he didn't defense a single pass as a rookie. The former fourth-round pick has been a decent player for the Packers and will look to improve as a starting caliber inside linebacker leading up to( the 2017 season.

Brett Hundley
News
Hundley completed eight of 15 passes for 90 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Thursday's preseason opener versus the Eagles.

Hundley watched Green Bay's offense fumble the ball and drop a couple passes during its first few possessions, but he responded by throwing a 20-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. With Aaron Rodgers rested for the night, Hundley played the entire first half and remained under center following intermission, but an interception on his first second-half snap ultimately ended his performance on a sour note. Hundley showed some promise despite the miscue, however, and he'll look to build on his success in the remaining preseason tilts.

Don Barclay
News
Barclay (ankle) is out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Eagles, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.

Barclay is a utility lineman, and one of only two on the Packers who has natural center ability. Corey Linsley will play in his place.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Jamaal Williams
News
Williams rushed seven times for 12 yards in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins.

With Ty Montgomery (leg) sitting Saturday, it was Williams working as the first-team tailback and seeing five of his seven touches during the Packers' 75-yard opening possession. The rookie has reportedly been solidifying his status as the top backup to Montgomery during camp, although his work in preseason games thus far (11 carries, 26 yards) has been rather lackluster. With Montgomery's status rather cloudy at the moment, Williams is likely to see some extended opportunity in the Packers' third preseason contest next Saturday against the Broncos

Lance Kendricks
News
Kendricks signed a contract with Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Kendricks returns home to Wisconsin just a day after the team reached an agreement with fellow tight end Martellus Bennett. The Packers let veteran Jared Cook walk in free agency but are quickly filling the void as Kendricks, Bennett, and Richard Rodgers all figure to be integral parts of Aaron Rodgers' arsenal. Last season with the Rams, Kendricks recorded 50 receptions for 499 yards and two touchdowns, marking the best year of his career. The details of the contract are still unknown.

Taysom Hill
No Updates
Joe Thomas
News
Thomas, an exclusive-rights free agent, signed his contract tender with the Packers on Monday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

Thomas led the Packers' inside linebacker corps in playing time last season due to injuries to Jake Ryan (shoulder) and Blake Martinez. However, he is the odd man out when all three are healthy and figures to open the 2017 season in a backup role.

Aaron Jones
News
Jones is still practicing as the Packers' No. 3 running back, ESPN.com reports.

With Ty Montgomery (leg) out, one might have expected Jones to work as Green Bay's second running back, but Devante Mays made enough of an impression to earn that opportunity for the time being. Saturday's preseason game against Washington should provide a good barometer on how the Packers feel about their group of rookie tailbacks.

Derrick Mathews
News
Mathews was released by Green Bay on Monday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Mathews has never played in an NFL game and was a long shot to make the Packers' roster. With the team's linebacking corps being as healthy as it is, Mathews was no longer needed as a camp player.

Max McCaffrey
News
McCaffrey caught three passes for 60 yards in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

McCaffrey has had a strong camp thus far, and that continued in the Packers' preseason opener. He still faces long odds to make Green Bay's Week 1 roster given the depth around him at his position.

Aaron Rodgers
News
Rodgers completed six of eight passes for 37 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins. He also rushed twice for 15 yards.

After sitting out last week's preseason opener, Rodgers was in mid-season form on a 15-play, 75-yard opening drive for the Packers that culminated in his three-yard touchdown pass to offseason acquisition Martellus Bennett. Rodgers took a seat after that possession, having accomplished what he'd set out to do in his first taste of exhibition action. The multi-time Pro Bowler encouragingly connected with four different pass catchers (Bennett, Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams) during his time on the field. Rodgers is likely to see more action in next Saturday's contest against the Broncos, although it wouldn't be surprising to see head coach Mike McCarthy curtail his playing time somewhat relative to what serves as the norm for the third preseason game.

Jermaine Whitehead
News
Whitehead is currently nursing a hip injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Whitehead played two games for the Packers last season, but spent the majority of the year on the practice squad. He is looking to make an impression during training camp, but is seemingly on track to fall short of the final roster.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Jay Elliott
News
Elliott signed a one-year, $1.6 million extension with the Packers on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Green Bay is able to keep him around for cheap, so bringing back his pass-rushing skills and special teams presence is an easy decision. With Julius Peppers headed to Carolina, expect Elliott to have the opportunity to win over more playing time next season if he can stay healthy.

Montravius Adams
News
Adams (foot) was seen without a walking boot at Tuesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Just more than two weeks removed from foot surgery, Adams was able to join his teammates on the field, albeit as a spectator without pads. Due to the nature of the procedure -- he had a screw inserted in his foot -- he's expected to miss the entirety of his first NFL preseason. Once healthy, though, the 2017 third-round pick will provide depth to the Packers defensive front.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Devante Mays
News
Mays has worked as the Packers' No. 2 running back in practice this week, ESPN.com reports.

In reality, Mays is more like Green Bay's third running back, but with starter Ty Montgomery (leg) sidelined, the rookie is showcasing what he can do. Mays seems to have jumped Aaron Jones on the depth chart, and could see increased playing time in Saturday's preseason game against Washington.

Demetri Goodson
News
Goodson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Goodson tore the ACL in gruesome fashion last November but is already back on the field working out with a trainer on the sidelines. After it was initially believed that he might not be ready to go for the start of the 2017 season, Goodson is now eyeing a return for the middle of training camp.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Physically Unable to Perform

LaDarius Gunter
News
Gunter finished the 2016 season with 54 tackles, two forced fumbles, and a team-high 12 passes defensed in 16 games played.

After playing just eight defensive snaps as an undrafted rookie in 2015, Gunter was in on 83.4 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps in 2016. The Packers' top three cornerbacks entering the season, Sam Shields, Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins all missed time due to injury, which allowed Gunter to carve out a role as the team's top cover corner. He struggled when matched up with some of the better receivers in the NFL but for the most part he impressed in the large role he was thrust into. He'll be looking to build off what was a breakout 2016 campaign in 2017.

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.

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 brought in one of two targets for a three-yard touchdown in Saturday's 21-17 preseason win over the Redskins.

Bennett put a successful cap on the Packers' opening 15-play, 75-yard drive with his score, marking his first time in the end zone in a Packers uniform. Although the touchdown was certainly a nice bonus, the most important takeaway from Bennett's brief game action was the fact he had a chance to officially take the field with Aaron Rodgers for the first time. He and the rest of his first-unit teammates are projected to see a notable bump in snaps during next Saturday's contest against the Broncos.

Dean Lowry
News
Lowry (knee) left Saturday's preseason game against Washington with a knee injury.

Lowry improved his pass-rushing ability this offseason and is slated to be a starter on the defensive line. It's unclear how severe this injury is, but expect the Packers to exercise caution going forward.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 vs. Seattle
Nick Perry
News
Perry is expected to return to the Packers in 2017, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Perry started 12 games for Green Bay in 2016, where he posted career highs in sacks (11), tackles (35) and passes defended (4). Bringing back their top pass rusher was said to be a "key priority" for the Packers, an organization that typically leans towards grooming its talent in-house.

Jeff Janis
News
Janis caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in Thursday's preseason victory over the Eagles.

Janis made a nice move to get open for the score, but he also dropped the only other ball thrown his direction. He has a good chance to make the cut given his special teams abilities, but it's unlikely he will be anything more than a depth option at the wide receiver position if he does.

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.
