Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randall (knee) underwent hand surgery Monday, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Prior to sitting out the last two games of the season due to a knee concern, Randall was the Packers' most consistent cornerback, the result of a number of an injuries elsewhere in the secondary. According to Cohen's source, Randall dealt with the minor issue in his hand "all season," so the team was aware of the imminent procedure. In 39 career contests, Randall has racked up 144 tackles and 10 interceptions, two of them for touchdowns.

Injury
Hand - Questionable for the start of training camp
Zach Triner
No Updates
Davante Adams
News
Adams said Tuesday that he's cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and doesn't have any long-term concerns about his health, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The wideout has sustained three documented concussions in the last 14 months, with the most recent head injury sidelining him for the final two games of the 2017 campaign. Though Adams' concussion history shouldn't be dismissed entirely, the Packers evidently agreed with the 25-year-old's own assessment of his health in their decision to ink him to a four-year, $58.75 million extension Friday. With Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) set to return from injury next season, Adams, who established himself as the team's clear No. 1 receiver in 2017 with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns, will once again warrant an early-round selection in fantasy drafts.

Bryan Bulaga
News
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.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
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 finished the 2017 season with 55 tackles (32 solo) and 4.5 sacks over 15 games.

Clark took a big step forward in 2017, making big improvements over his rookie season in both the tackle and sack departments while playing the most snaps of any Packers defensive lineman. He has a first-round pedigree to go along with his numbers, and will be a player to keep an eye on in 2018.

Blake Martinez
News
Martinez finished the 2017 season with 144 combined tackles, a total that tied him with two other players for the league lead.

Martinez took a huge leap in his second year, becoming the Packers' top middle linebacker and increasing his tackle total by 75. He had just one sack and one interception, but he provided a big boost for fantasy owners in leagues where tackles by individual defensive players were key. Following his big season Martinez will remain the Packers' top middle linebacker heading into 2018, and with him turning just 24 in January, he will be a good bet to pile up numbers in the tackle department once again.

Jahri Evans
News
Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Evans will be sidelined a second straight week with his knee injury. He played every snap in the 14 games he appeared in for the Packers, but he will turn 35 prior to the 2018 campaign and signed just a one-year deal with the Packers last offseason, so it remains to be seen if he will return to Green Bay.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Trevor Davis
News
Davis had three receptions for 56 yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions and finished the season with five receptions for 70 yards.

Davis played a bit role in the Packers' offense, much like he did in his rookie year of 2016, but he did serve as the team's primary return man. His 22.8-yard average on kickoff returns was middle of the pack, but he was among the league's top punt returners, finishing third among qualified players in that category with 12.0 yards per return. Davis' special teams work figures to keep him on the roster heading into training camp, but he is at risk of losing his spot to another receiver who brings more to the table on the offensive side of the ball.

Justin Vogel
No Updates
David Talley
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Jason Spriggs
News
Spriggs (knee) was diagnosed with a dislocated left kneecap and won't require surgery, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Spriggs, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, won't require the procedure since no damage to his patellar tendon was detected. It's expected that Spriggs will require multiple months to recuperate, though the team is hopeful he'll be ready for the start of Organized Team Activities in the spring. Justin McCray looks poised to start at right tackle in Spriggs' place during the season finale Sunday against the Lions.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Lane Taylor
News
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
News
Allison caught two passes for 15 yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions and finished the season with 23 receptions for 253 yards.

Allison occupied the No. 4 spot on the depth chart at the wide receiver spot for most of the campaign, but his numbers took a small step forward in his second season. The Packers re-signed fellow receiver Davante Adams to a multi-year deal before 2017 came to a close, but they will have decisions to make on wideouts Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, who carry hefty salaries in 2018. If either or both move on, that could allow Allison to move up the ranks, and give him a chance to post more games like his 122-yard outing from Week 3, in which he had Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.

Ulrick John
News
John (back) is active Sunday against the Lions.

With Jahri Evans (knee) on the shelf, John will be on hand as another reserve offensive line option for the Packers.

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
News
Clark caught one pass for five yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions and finished his rookie season with four receptions for 41 yards over two games.

Clark spent most of the year on the practice squad, but he got a chance to see some run late in the season thanks to injuries to his fellow receivers. The Packers like his size and athleticism, but he has minimal experience playing football after spending most of college playing basketball, so he is going to have some refining to do if he hopes to play a bigger role in his sophomore season.

Mike Daniels
News
Daniels recorded 49 tackles (34 solo) and five sacks over 14 games during the 2017 season.

Daniels tallied at least four sacks for the fifth consecutive year, and his 49 tackles tied a career high. He has been a key cog in the middle of the Packers' defense and will remain one in 2018.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb nabbed four of six targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 35-11 loss to Detroit. He added a four-yard run during the contest.

On fourth and five early in the fourth quarter, Cobb crossed over the middle, snagged a Brett Hundley pass, and cut up field for a 17-yard score -- Green Bay's first in two weeks. 2017 was another ho-hum year for Cobb, but he ended the season strong with two touchdowns in his last three games. It'll be interesting to see what Green Bay does with Cobb following its big contract with Davante Adams. Cobb carries a $12.75-million cap hit in 2018 and a $3.25 million dead-cap figure if he's cut following back-to-back seasons of less than 700 yards receiving.

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

Injury
Wrist - Injured Reserve
Vince Biegel
News
Biegel posted 16 tackles (11 solo) over nine games during his rookie season with the Packers.

Biegel missed a good chunk of time after undergoing foot surgery in May, but he was still able to suit up for more than half of the games in his rookie season. The Packers will be hoping he can provide a boost to the team's pass rush in 2018.

Brett Goode
News
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 ESPN.com 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
News
House totaled 44 tackles (37 solo), a sack and an interception over 12 games with the Packers in 2017.

House returned to Green Bay after spending two seasons in Jacksonville, and although he played well at certain points, his battles with injuries limited his effectiveness. He previously signed a one-year deal with the Packers, so it remains to be seen if he will spend another year with the team in 2018.

Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson (shoulder) may be asked to take a pay cut or even be released in the offseason, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.

Nelson had six touchdowns in the five games he and Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) both started and finished this season, but the veteran wideout otherwise was held out of the end zone completely while failing to top 35 yards in a game after Week 6. Brett Hundley's poor play obviously gets some of the blame, but it's impossible to completely absolve Nelson when considering that Davante Adams (concussion) continued to produce at a high level. Friday's announcement of a long-term extension for Adams brings Nelson's situation to the forefront, with the 32-year-old wideout entering the final season of his own contract, scheduled for a $9.25 million base salary in 2018. Even if he sticks around, Nelson is unlikely to regain his long-time standing as the No. 1 target in the Green Bay passing game, given that Adams has proven to be the superior player at this point in their respective careers. Slot receiver Randall Cobb also will be entering the final year of his contract and likewise seems to be in danger of facing an offseason ultimatum.

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 went 5-for-7 for 11 yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions.

Seeing his first regular season action in two years as a professional, Callahan led the Packers' final drive of their 2017 campaign. He has impressed the Packers enough to spend the bulk of the past two seasons with the club, but he did not get a chance to supplant fill-in starter Brett Hundley even when he was struggling during Aaron Rodgers' absence, so it seems unlikely he will be part of the conversation for the backup job behind Rodgers heading into next season.

Emanuel Byrd
News
Byrd caught two passes for 31 yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions.

Byrd was promoted from the practice squad for the Packers' season finale, which allowed the rookie to notch the first two receptions of his career. He spent training camp and half of the season with the Packers, so he should get a chance to compete for a roster spot if he returns to Green Bay.

Kevin King
News
King is scheduled for shoulder surgery Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com 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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
DeAngelo Yancey
News
Yancey signed a future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Yancey spent all season on the practice squad after being taken in the fifth round of last year's draft, but he will get another chance to show the Packers what he can do in his second professional season.

Joe Kerridge
News
Kerridge was promoted to the Packers' 53-man roster Saturday.

Kerridge spent about a month with the Packers before being waived earlier in December, but will finish the season on the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old will likely assume a similar role as his first stint with the team, mostly being a contributor on special teams.

Josh Jones
News
Jones totaled 71 tackles (60 solo), two sacks, and an interception over 16 games during his rookie season.

Jones was relatively quiet in his rookie season, but he still managed to record the third most snaps of all Packers defenders, and he did post a 12-tackle, two-sack game in Week 3. If he plays an even bigger role in his second season, fantasy players in leagues using IDPs should recall he has that type of upside.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews underwent knee surgery last week, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

The procedure is being described as a "cleanup," but Matthews had not dealt with a knee injury this season, so it's an interesting development for the linebacker. Although there doesn't appear to be much concern as of now, Matthews' health could have an impact on his future with the organization, as he has just one year left on his current contract with the Packers.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett made 68 tackles (48 solo) and forced a fumble over 12 games during the 2017 season.

Burnett put up quality numbers for fantasy players in 2016. but he failed to register anything in the sack or interception departments and saw his tackle total take a big drop while battling injuries. A free agent in the offseason, it remains to be seen if Burnett will return to the Packers, or head elsewhere after eight seasons in Green Bay.

Aaron Ripkowski
News
Ripkowski finished the 2017 season with five carries for 13 yards and seven receptions for 39 yards in 16 games.

Ripkowski accumulated 196 yards and three touchdowns on 43 touches the season before, so it seemed he would be more involved in the offense in 2017 than he actually was. However, the Packers got better usage out of their running backs than they did the year before, so Ripkowski was limited almost exclusively to blocking duty and special teams work. His reputation made him a first alternate for this year's Pro Bowl, but his 12 touches in 2017 mean he will head into 2018 without any realistic fantasy value.

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

Lucas Patrick
News
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
News
Brice left Sunday's game against the Saints on a cart with what appears to be a right leg injury, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com 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.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix finished the 2017 season with 79 tackles (65 solo) and three interceptions over 16 games.

Clinton-Dix's production took a slight step back in 2017, which was a bit of a surprise for a player seemingly on the rise heading into his fourth season. Nevertheless, Clinton-Dix was still an iron man for the Packers, playing over 99 percent of the defensive snaps, and he will be back in his starting free safety spot next season.

Mason Crosby
News
Crosby made 15 goals and 33 extra points en route to finishing the 2017 season with a career-low 78 points.

Crosby had never scored fewer than 108 points in any of his 11 seasons prior to 2017, but with starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing most of the season, the Packers' offense afforded him just 19 field-goal attempts. If Rodgers is healthy for all of 2018 Crosby's opportunities should pick up again, but his down year won't leave him very high on cheat sheets heading into next year's fantasy drafts.

Richard Rodgers
News
Rodgers (shoulder) will not play in Week 17 against the Lions.

Rodgers was forced out of the Packers' Week 16 game by his shoulder injury, and it turns out the setback will prevent him from suiting up Sunday for the first time in his career. Rodgers came up big for the Packers with 77 yards and a score, but he otherwise totaled just 83 yards and no touchdowns over the other 14 games he played in 2017. It's clear the Packers view him as a depth player after signing Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett the last two offseasons, so it remains to be seen if, as an unrestricted free agent, Rodgers returns to the only team he has played for or seeks a new opportunity elsewhere.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
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
News
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.

Injury
Foot - Injured Reserve
Colby Pearson
No Updates
Jake Ryan
News
Ryan made 81 tackles (52 solo) and recorded a sack over 15 games during the 2017 season.

Ryan played one more game than he did in 2016, but he fell just one stop short of tying the career-high 82 tackles he put up a year ago. He finished second among Packers inside linebackers in defensive snaps each of the last two seasons, and he figures to get a chance to again be the No. 2 man at his position in 2018.

Robert Tonyan
News
Tonyan signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Tonyan spend training camp with the Lions last summer as an undrafted rookie free agent. The 23-year-old will have a chance to complete for a roster spot come training camp at a position of weakness for Green Bay.

Brett Hundley
News
Hundley completed 14 of 24 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions during Sunday's 35-11 loss to Detroit. He also lost a fumble and converted a two-point conversion during the contest.

By the time Hundley hooked up with Randall Cobb for a 17-yard score early in the fourth quarter, the game was already effectively out of reach. Hundley seemed to revert back to his early-season struggles in the season's final two weeks. The UCLA product had a touchdown:interception ratio of six:one in Weeks 12 to 14, sat behind Aaron Rodgers in Week 15, and then preceded to throw four picks and just one touchdown against Minnesota and Detroit to end the season. He figures to return to his spot behind a healthy Rodgers in 2018.

Kofi Amichia
News
Amichia signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Amichia was on the Packers' practice squad for the 2017 season after being waived at roster cutdowns in September. The 23-year-old will have a full training camp to try and earn a reserve role on Green Bay's offensive line.

Jamaal Williams
News
Williams recorded 22 carries for 82 yards and three catches (on five targets) for 31 yards during Sunday's 35-11 loss at Detroit.

With fellow rookie running back Aaron Jones inactive due to an MCL sprain in his left knee, Williams more than upheld his end of the bargain as a bell cow, handling 22 of the Packers' 27 rushes. Williams' pass-catching prowess was also on display, as he managed his first reception since Week 14. Over the final eight games of the season, he surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage four times, averaging 93.3 such yards per outing while reaching the end zone three times. The performance may have been enough to push Ty Montgomery (wrist) for lead duty in the 2018 campaign. Before then, though, Williams may have to recover from a head injury, as he left Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter to undergo a concussion evaluation.

Ahmad Thomas
No Updates
Lance Kendricks
News
Kendricks did not catch in the Packers' regular season finale and finished 2017 with 18 receptions for 203 yards over 16 games.

It was thought that Kendricks would play a bigger role after joining the Packers last offseason, and even though he took over as the starter in October following the departure of fellow tight end Martellus Bennett, he did not come close to matching the 50 receptions he posted in 2016. In fact, he finished with the lowest reception total of his career; so though figures to be back in Green Bay in 2018 after signing a two-year contract, it's unlikely he will head into the season any higher than No. 2 on the depth chart.

Jake Kumerow
News
Kumerow signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday.

Kumerow joined the Packers' practice squad in late December and was on the Patriots' practice squad earlier in the season. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater product will have a chance compete come training camp next summer.

Joe Thomas
News
Thomas totaled 14 tackles and a half sack over 12 games with the Packers in 2017.

Thomas played the most snaps of any Packers inside linebacker in 2016, but he played a reduced role this past season -- 528 defensive snaps fewer, to be exact -- due to injuries and the emergence of fellow middle linebacker Blake Martinez. As such, Thomas will likely be forced to compete for a roster spot in 2018.

Injury
Triceps - Injured Reserve
Aaron Jones
News
Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

The extent of the knee injury Jones suffered in Week 16 is still not entirely certain, but it has prevented him from practicing this week and will sideline him for the Packers' regular-season finale. Jones finishes his rookie season with a pedestrian 448 yards, but he will be a player to keep in mind heading into fantasy drafts in 2018. He averaged a healthy 5.5 yards per carry and proved capable of handling lead-back duties several times during the campaign.

Injury
Knee - MCL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Aaron Rodgers
News
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Rodgers won't require any further procedures on his surgically-repaired right collarbone, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Aaron's in rest and recovery mode," McCarthy said. "He has a distinct rehab plan as he moves forward."

The Packers' medical staff signed off on Rodgers to return from a seven-game absence and start in the Week 15 loss to the Panthers, even though the quarterback's collarbone wasn't 100 percent healed. Though Rodgers didn't suffer a setback with his throwing shoulder during the outing, McCarthy relayed that the two-time MVP was a little sore afterward. With Green Bay eliminated from postseason contention in the aftermath of Week 15, the team elected to move Rodgers back to injured reserve for the second time this season and shut him down for the final two contests of 2017. Brett Hundley is slated to start Saturday against the Vikings and Week 17 against the Lions.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Jermaine Whitehead
News
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
News
Adams totaled two tackles (one solo) over seven games during his rookie season of 2017.

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

Devante Mays
News
Mays returned to the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions after suffering a shoulder injury, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and finished the game with one carry for two yards and three receptions for no yards.

The four touches upped Mays' total touches on the year to seven, as he played a bit role for the Packers in his rookie season. The team liked him enough to keep him on the roster all season, but he will be behind fellow rookie runners Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams on the depth chart moving forward, so he is going to have to compete to hold onto his spot in 2018.

Demetri Goodson
News
Goodson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve by the Packers on Friday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Goodson's year-long rehab from last November's nasty knee injury ended in disappointment, as he never saw the field in 2017. The 28-year-old came off the Physically Unable to Perform list late last month, only to injure his hamstring shortly thereafter.

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
Dillon Day
News
The Packers signed Day to a contract Wednesday.

Day, who went undrafted in 2015, has spent the majority of his professional career on the Broncos' practice squad. He'll provide Green Bay with depth along the interior of the offensive line during his stint with the team.

David Bakhtiari
News
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 ESPN.com 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
News
Fackrell racked up 28 tackles (22 solo) and three sacks over 16 games with the Packers in 2017.

Fackrell contributed more than he did during his rookie season of 2016, but he started just two games and was still primarily a part-time player. He figures to fill a similar role in 2018.

Chris Odom
No Updates
Reggie Gilbert
News
Gilbert signed a contract with the Packers on Friday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

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

Dean Lowry
News
Lowry totaled 32 tackles (18 solo), two sacks and a return touchdown over 16 games with the Packers in 2017.

Lowry played a minor role in his rookie season of 2016, but he took a step forward last year, starting 11 games along the Packers' defensive line. He could be pushed for his starting spot in 2018, but either way he figures to factor into the defensive line rotation.

Nick Perry
News
Perry (ankle/shoulder) was placed on injured reserve by the Packers on Saturday.

Perry had already been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Lions, but the move opens up a roster spot for the Packers. The 27-year-old was bothered by injuries throughout the season and will end the year not playing in the final two games of 2017.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Josh Hawkins
News
Hawkins tallied 37 tackles (27 solo) and six pass deflections over 15 games with the Packers in 2017.

It was thought that Hawkins would mainly fill a depth role for the Packers in 2017, but due to injuries to fellow defensive backs he played more than anticipated and even started three games. His experience this past season will help him in the competition for a roster spot during training camp in 2018.

Quinton Dial
News
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
News
Brooks made 19 tackles (13 solo) and recorded 1.5 sacks over 12 games with the Packers in 2017.

Brooks provided some quality depth for the Packers, starting five games, but his production was slowed by a nagging back injury. He will turn 34 during the offseason, so it remains to be seen what his next step will be.

Jeff Janis
News
Janis caught two passes for 12 yards over 16 games during the 2017 season.

Janis did not catch a pass until Week 16, and the five targets he saw all season were his fewest since his rookie year of 2014. However, he managed to stay on the roster all season thanks to his superior skills on punt and kick coverage. With just 17 receptions over four seasons Janis is no longer really a fantasy prospect, but his work on special teams will give him a chance to stick around with the Packers in 2018.

Corey Linsley
News
Linsley signed three-year, $25.5 million contract extension with the Packers on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Linsley has started every game for the Packers this season. He has proved reliable on the line, so it makes sense that the team wants to lock him up for the long term. The 26-year-old is now set to spend the prime of his career in Green Bay.
