  Packers | J'Mon Moore likely to be cut    Thu Aug 22, 02:50 AM

Green Bay Packers WR J'Mon Moore has a 'pretty slim' chance of making the 53-man roster, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who notes that Moore has had way too many drops in camp. Moore was a fourth-round pick last year.

Footballguys view: Moore could get added elsewhere if a team had a high grade on him and he is likely to be on a practice squad somewhere after making the Packers roster last year.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow pushing for time    Tue Aug 20, 02:38 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow is 'in line for a significant role' this season, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and QB Aaron Rodgers said Kumerow is the type of receiver he likes working with. 'He's just a very smart guy, cerebral guy, and you guys know I love playing with those kind of guys,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: This has been a consistent drumbeat all offseason long. Kumerow is a dynasty prospect we've stashed in deeper leagues, but he could carve out a larger role than expected in 2019. He could provide Rodgers with a consistent target as a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for the Packers this season.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham doesn't need surgery    Mon Aug 19, 04:41 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (finger) doesn't need surgery, according to head coach Matt LaFleur. Graham will 'be all right,' said LaFleur.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the veteran tight end. He had to leave practice after jamming his finger, and without surgery Graham should be back out there in the near future. There is no question about his Week 1 status.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham leaves after injury    Sun Aug 18, 04:12 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (finger) ran off the field Sunday, Aug. 18, after appearing to dislocate his finger, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

Footballguys view: No update on Graham here. He did not return to practice and we'll know more about the severity of this injury when the team releases more information. Some practice reporters called this a 'jammed' finger which sounds less serious than a dislocated finger even though it could be the same thing.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (back) was held out of the team's exhibition game against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Aug. 15, due to back tightness, and head coach Matt LaFleur said afterward it's not a 'necessity' to have Rodgers play at all in the preseason. 'I think we'd like to see him, but you're talking about a veteran quarterback that's played a lot of football,' LaFleur said via PackersNews.com following Thursday's game. 'I don't think it's a necessity, but it's certainly something that we'd like to see.'

  Packers | Jake Kumerow now a lock?    Fri Aug 16, 02:16 AM

Green Bay Packers WRs Jake Kumerow caught three passes for 63 yards against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday, Aug. 15, and ESPN's Rob Demovsky indicated that it 'would seem' that Kumerow is now a lock alongside WRs Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison.

Footballguys view: Kumerow has stayed healthy and continued to make plays in the preseason. He is one of Aaron Rodgers favorites and will be a good waiver pickup if one of the Packers starting wide receivers suffer an injury.

Green Bay Packers WR Equanimeous St. Brown (knee) suffered a knee injury during practice Sunday, Aug. 11, and sat out the rest of drills.

Footballguys view: We will wait to see if he gets an MRI. St. Brown hasn't generated as much buzz as Jake Kumerow this summer, but is probably still in line to make the roster. He could end up being an injured reserve stash if this isn't minor.

  Packers | Oren Burks likely suffered torn pec    Sat Aug 10, 05:11 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Oren Burks (pectoral) is believed to have suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the team's preseason opener against the Houston Texans, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Burks was penciled in as a starter, so this is a hole for this defense. He has plus pass coverage skills, so this is an upgrade for Trey Burton's Week 1 matchup and could be a weakness that teams attack if the Packers can't find a suitable replacement.

Footballguys view: Jamaal Williams has had a hamstring issue for most of camp, and Dexter might be a better fit in the outside zone running game. If Aaron Jones goes down, it's possible Dexter will be the Williams to pick up.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham expects more in 2019    Thu Aug 8, 02:00 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham said he expects to be a bigger part of the offense under new head coach Matt LaFleur.

Footballguys view: Graham was not a force in the red zone last year, scoring only two touchdowns. This was after his final season in Seattle where he scored 10 times. We should see Graham have a bounce-back season in 2019. Perhaps he won't get 10 touchdowns, but we'd bet he gets more than a couple. Graham has a current ADP of TE17 (13.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger (head, jaw) is being evaluated for a concussion after being hit during practice Monday, Aug. 5. He is also dealing with a jaw injury.

Footballguys view: Bad news here, and we'll see when the rookie tight end can get back on the field. He's going to work as a backup to Jimmy Graham this year but Sternberger could be the future at the position. He's athletic and capable of creating mismatches as a receiving weapon for Aaron Rodgers.
