Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randall made six tackles (all solo) and deflected a pass in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks.

Randall briefly left Sunday's game, but he was in the starting lineup when the contest began, and still managed to play 40 of the Packers' 49 defensive snaps, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Davante Adams
News
Adams was targeted 10 times in Sunday's loss to the Falcons and caught eight passes for 99 yards and a touchdown.

Adams caught just three passes in the Packers' season opener, but he was far more active in Week 2, helping fill the void for the injured Jordy Nelson (quad). Adams will play a key role in the Packers' passing game regardless of Nelson's status, but if Nelson misses more time moving forward, Adams could see double-digit targets on a more frequent basis.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Bulaga (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bengals, Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Bulaga appeared to aggravate the ankle injury that prevented him from playing in the season's first two games. He was replaced at right tackle by Justin McCray.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 vs. Chicago
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 totaled five tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

For the second week in a row, Martinez was the only inside linebacker to see extensive snaps, playing 38 while fellow inside linebackers Jake Ryan and Joe Thomas combined for 31. He has totaled seven tackles through two weeks.

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 caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Davis was forced to signal for a fair catch on each of his four punt return opportunities Sunday, but he did get a chance to play more snaps on offense with fellow wide receivers Jordy Nelson (quad) and Randall Cobb (shoulder) both leaving the game, and nabbed his first catch of the year. Davis did not do much with the extra opportunities, however, and still needs several things to break his way before he becomes a realistic fantasy option.

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 signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract extension with the Packers on Monday, ESPN.com reports.

Taylor stepped into the Packers' starting left guard spot for the first time in 2016, and his extension puts him in position to hold down the job through 2020. Taylor suffered a minor knee injury in the NFC championship game, but he played in three preseason games and is healthy heading into Week 1.

Geronimo Allison
News
Allison caught six of eight targets for 122 yards Sunday during the Packers' 27-24 overtime victory over the Bengals.

Tasked with an expanded role in the absence of Randall Cobb (chest), Allison paced the Packers in receiving yardage despite finishing the day third in targets behind Ty Montgomery (12) and Jordy Nelson (9). However, most of his production came on a 72-yard catch in overtime. If Cobb is able to return in Week 4, expect his usage to fall.

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 inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Daniels was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report, so this news isn't much of a surprise. The 28-year-old defensive tackle was a critical piece of Green Bay's win against Seattle in Week 1, recording seven tackles (five solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Expect rookie third-round pick Montravius Adams to slot in for his first career NFL snaps.

Injury
Hip - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
Randall Cobb
News
Cobb (chest) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Cobb's listing among the Packers' inactives is no surprise with no practice reps in advance of the contest. Aaron Rodgers will still have Jordy Nelson (quadriceps), Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison and Martellus Bennett at his disposal, so the Packers can afford to give Cobb as much time as he needs in his recovery.

Injury
Chest - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
Justin McCray
No Updates
Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery rushed 12 times for 35 yards and caught eight of 12 targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Bengals.

Montgomery is seeing more playing time than any other running back in the league right now, as Nathan Jahnke of Pro Football Focus points out how his 205 offensive snaps are 32 more than any other runner this season. However, he's averaging just 3.02 yards per carry, so the efficiency isn't quite there yet. Fortunately, there's optimism he'll turn things around this Thursday against the Bears -- the team Montgomery broke out against in Week 15 of last year to the tune of 16 carries for 162 rushing yards and two scores.

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
Brett Goode
News
Goode has signed a contract with the Packers.

Goode served as the Packers' primary long snapper from 2008 to 2016, 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 (quadriceps) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

House didn't practice all week so this comes as no surprise. His focus is now shifting to Thursday night's game against the Bears, and Quinten Rollins and rookie Kevin King will hold down the fort in his absence.

Injury
Quadriceps - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson caught six of nine targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory against the Bengals.

Nelson finished second on the team in targets while, more importantly, showing no signs of the quadriceps injury that knocked him out of Week 2. Furthermore, his two-touchdown performance marked his third multi-score outing in his last six healthy regular-season games and his 16th and 17th time finding pay dirt since the start of the 2016 campaign. Next up is a Thursday night matchup with a Bears secondary that just allowed Steelers wideout Antonio Brown to catch 10 passes for 110 yards a score Sunday.

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
Callahan was waived by the Packers on Saturday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Callahan has shown promise since signing with the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2016 -- enough to be claimed by two other teams after he was released by the Packers mid-way through last year -- but he was outplayed by fellow quarterback Taysom Hill this preseason, so he will not claim a spot on the Week 1 roster as he did a year ago. Callahan is a candidate for the Packers' practice squad, but given the interest in him a year ago, he could seek another opportunity elsewhere.

Kevin King
News
King (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

King missed the Packers' preseason finale against the Rams and was limited in Wednesday's practice, so this is good news. The 22-year-old never felt his Week 1 status was in doubt, and will likely be in Green Bay's second rotation of cornerbacks to start the season.

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 (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 had five tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Matthews was quiet in Week 1, but he picked up his game in the Packers' second contest and finished with more than one sack for the first time since Week 5 of 2015.

Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett had five tackles during Sunday's 34-23 loss to Atlanta.

Burnett has now strung together two solid performances and seems to have moved on from the quadriceps injury that was bothering him at the end of last season.

Aaron Ripkowski
News
Ripkowski played 22 snaps on offense in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Ripkowski averaged nearly three touches per game in 2016, but he was limited to blocking duty in Week 1 and did not record a carry nor a reception. He did not record his first touch last year until Week 5, so he could still get involved in the offense down the road.

Quinten Rollins
News
Rollins had eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks.

Rollins opened the season as the Packers' nickelback and was not tabbed with a start Sunday, but with the Packers frequently operating with extra defensive backs and fellow cornerback Damarious Randall briefly leaving the game, Rollins was on the field for 46 of the Packers' 49 defensive snaps, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Expect him to continue playing a regular role in the Packers' defensive backfield.

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 (groin) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Brice has been playing a lot, as Morgan Burnett spends most of his time at inside linebacker in the Packers' nitro package, so Brice's injury shakes up the Packers' defensive game plan. Expect to see rookie Josh Jones filling in at safety.

Injury
Groin - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix racked up six tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Clinton-Dix led the Packers in tackles Sunday, though his six combined tackles are hardly an eye-popping number. He has racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) through two weeks.

Mason Crosby
News
Crosby made a 28-yard field goal and two extra points in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

The Packers did not get much going on offense until the second half and attempted a two-point conversion on one of their three touchdowns, so Crosby's output suffered as a result. He has totaled just 10 points through two weeks but has also not missed a kick.

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
No Updates
Jake Ryan
News
Ryan (concussion/hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Ryan didn't participate in practice this week as he is still completing the league's concussion protocol as well as rehabbing his hamstring. He'll have a short week to get ready for a Thursday night game against the Bears, and expect Morgan Burnett to continue to slot in at linebacker.

Injury
Concussion - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
Brett Hundley
News
Hundley completed 11 of 21 passes for for 99 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason victory over the Rams. He also added a 13-yard touchdown on the ground.

Hundley's rate stats Thursday were not great, but he avoided turning the ball over for the third straight game and, most importantly, escaped the contest healthy. Hundley saw extensive action this preseason after being limited to one brief appearance last year due to an injury. He completed 63 percent of his passes (48-for-76) and strengthened his grip on the backup job behind starter Aaron Rodgers.

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 two carries for six yards and one reception for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Williams saw ample touches on his 11 snaps in Sunday's contest, but he was not able to do much with any of them. He will be the next man up if something happens to starter Ty Montgomery, but will continue to play a bit role in the offense otherwise.

Lance Kendricks
News
Kendricks caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's victory over the Seahawks.

Kendricks made a minimal impact on Sunday's game, his first since signing with his hometown squad during the offseason. He did clearly run as the Packers' No. 2 tight end, however, as according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, he played 21 snaps to the five accumulated by third-string tight end Richard Rodgers.

Joe Thomas
News
Thomas had two tackles and 0.5 sacks during Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Falcons.

Thomas made his presence known when he and Clay Matthews teamed up to sack Matt Ryan early in the first half of Sunday's action. Other than that play, Thomas had a somewhat quiet game, partially due to the offensive talent of the Falcons.

Aaron Jones
News
Jones suited up for his first NFL game Sunday but did not record a snap on offense, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Jones was in uniform Sunday after being scratched in Week 1 in favor of fellow rookie Devante Mays, but he was used only as insurance, as Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams took every running back snap. Jones is listed ahead of Mays on the depth chart, but both players have now suited up once without seeing a snap on offense, so they are essentially side-by-side for the No. 3 running back role as things stand.

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 completed 28 of 42 passes for 313 yards, three touchdowns and an interception during Sunday's 27-24 overtime victory over the Bengals.

Injuries along the offensive line slowed Rodgers down at first, but the two-time league MVP ultimately rallied his team back from a 21-7 halftime deficit to lift the Packers back atop of the standings in NFC North. Fantasy owners who invested an early-round pick are surely content with his production so far, as Rodgers hasn't ever started a season with three 300-yard games and is on pace to top 5,000 passing yards and 30 scores. On tap is a juicy home matchup against the Bears this Thursday night.

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 4 vs. Chicago
Montravius Adams
News
Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal SentinelAdams (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, will likely see some action either way.

Devante Mays
News
Mays was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Mays suited up for Week 1 while fellow rookie running back Aaron Jones was inactive, but the two swapped places in Week 2. Neither player saw a carry in his appearance, providing no chance to establish either as the Packers' clear No. 3 running back.

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
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.

Injury
Back - Injured Reserve
David Bakhtiari
News
Bakhtiari (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

With Bakhtiari out, Kyle Murphy will be tasked with covering Aaron Rodgers' blind side, even though Brian Bulaga (ankle) is active.

Injury
Hamstring - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
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.

Chris Odom
No Updates
Martellus Bennett
News
Bennett caught five passes for 47 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Bennett could have had a bigger game Sunday night, but he dropped several passes thrown his direction and finished with fewer than 50 receiving yards for the second time in as many weeks as a Packer. The good news for Bennett and his fantasy owners is that he led the Packers with 11 targets, so it's clear quarterback Aaron Rodgers is already comfortable throwing the ball in his direction often.

Reggie Gilbert
No Updates
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) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Perry underwent surgery on his hand this week so there wasn't much optimism about his availability. However, Perry will now focus on getting healthy for a Thursday night matchup with the Bears, but he should be considered a long shot to play considering the short week.

Injury
Hand - Inactive for Week 3 vs. Cincinnati
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.

Ahmad Brooks
News
Brooks (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is expected to play Sunday against the Bengals, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Brooks has only played seven total snaps with the Packers this season, but now that he's healthy, he could be in store for a big role in Week 3. With linebackers Nick Perry (hand) questionable for Sunday's contest, Brooks may step into a starting role as an edge rusher opposite Clay Matthews.

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
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.
