  Packers | Jared Cook has high ankle sprain    Tue Sep 27, 08:41 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) has a high ankle sprain that could cost him some time.

Footballguys view: The dreaded high-ankle sprain could bother Cook for a large amount of time. With Cook banged up, the Packers should turn to Richard Rodgers. That doesn't mean Rodgers is fantasy relevant as he's more of a desperation TE2 for fantasy owners as it currently stands.

  Packers | Jared Cook's injury not season-ending    Mon Sep 26, 01:08 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) was spotted on crutches and in a boot after being carted to the locker room during a Week 3 win over the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran TE here. The Packers will still determine whether Cook will be sidelined for multiple weeks or whether he'll be able to return after the team's bye in Week 4.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson scores twice in Week 3    Sun Sep 25, 04:55 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson caught two touchdown passes and finished with 101 yards receiving Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Nelson showed some speed on a long catch and run and his ability to shake free and be on the same page as Aaron Rodgers in the red zone is still intact. Consider him a low WR1/strong WR2 heading into his bye.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy rushes for over 100 yards    Sun Sep 25, 04:48 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ran 17 times for 103 yards in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: Lacy was able to get rolling in the second half as the Packers were protecting a big lead. Lacy is gaining momentum as the Packers enter an early bye. He's a solid RB2 with room to grow.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers has four TDs in Week 3    Sun Sep 25, 04:39 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns and finished with 204 yards passing Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 34-27 win over the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Rodgers was on fire in the first half, with help from a resurgent Jordy Nelson. The second half saw the Packers take their foot off of the gas on offense, but Rodgers still goes into the bye on a high note.

  Packers | Jared Cook ruled out    Sun Sep 25, 03:59 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook (ankle) did not return to his team's game Sunday, Sept. 25, against the Detroit Lions due to an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Richard Rodgers could have some value in deep and TE premium leagues if Cook misses time. Rodgers caught one of Aaron Rodgers' four touchdown passes today.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson productive in first half    Sun Sep 25, 02:59 PM

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers has big first half    Sun Sep 25, 02:52 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers went 12-for-18 for 174 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of the team's Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Two of the four scores went to Jordy Nelson, who also had a long catch and run play that showed Nelson is all the way back from his ACL tear. The Lions defense is very weak against the pass without Ezekiel Ansah and DeAndre Levy.

  Packers | Week 3 Inactives    Sun Sep 25, 11:31 AM

The Green Bay Packers have declared LB Clay Matthews, LB Datone Jones, QB Joe Callahan, OT Kyle Murphy, DL Letroy Guion, FS Morgan Burnett, CB Sam Shields inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: The Packers are missing key starters at every level of the defense. This could be one of the highest scoring games of the day with the Lions also down two of their three best defensive players.

  Packers | Sam Shields to miss more time    Sun Sep 25, 09:40 AM

Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) is expected to be 'cleared to play in a few more weeks,' according to a source.

Footballguys view: This could be overly optimistic, as Shields has had four concussions in his career. He is the Packers best cover corner and opposing matchups will benefit from his absence. Consider Shields out indefinitely.

  Packers | Friday injury report for Green Bay    Fri Sep 23, 05:28 PM

Green Bay Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 3. SS Morgan Burnett (groin), DT Letroy Guion (knee), DE Datone Jones (knee), OG T.J. Lang (hip) and LB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) are listed as questionable. Shields, Matthews, Jones, Guion and Burnett did not participate in practice, while Lang was limited during practice. FS Chris Banjo (hamstring), LB Jayrone Elliott (hamstring), CB Josh Hawkins (hamstring), CB Micah Hyde (ankle) and WR Jeff Janis (hand) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report. The Packers did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Shields being out is a boon for Marvin Jones, Golden Tate and Matthew Stafford. The Lions-Packers game could be one of the highest scoring matchups of Week 3.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy to run more    Fri Sep 23, 09:54 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy is expected to receive more carries after head coach Mike McCarthy said he wanted to give the backs more rushing attempts.

Footballguys view: Lacy has been "vultured" at the goal line twice by Aaron Rodgers so far this year. The Lions are without their best pass rusher and linebacker this week, so Lacy and the Packers should be able to execute their game plan and get their lead back going.

  Packers | C.J. Spiller visiting Green Bay    Tue Sep 20, 03:28 PM

Free-agent RB C.J. Spiller (Saints) is visiting the Green Bay Packers Tuesday, Sept. 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers had interest in Ronnie Hillman earlier this year in the spring, so perhaps their desire to have a smaller, change-of-pace back continues with this workout of Spiller. No signing is imminent, so they may just be updating their emergency list.

  Packers | Jared Cook waiting for his chance    Sat Sep 17, 01:45 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jared Cook is unconcerned about his lack of Week 1 production and suggested some of the plays that were called for him against the Jacksonville Jaguars were scrapped because the Jaguars provided safety help over the top, opening up chances for teammates.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are waiting for Cook to do something. On paper, Cook looks like a great fit for the Packers offense. On the field, the physically gifted veteran still never plays up to his potential.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson wore down    Thu Sep 15, 10:20 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson admitted he had heavy legs in Week 1 in which he played 54 of the 64 offensive plays. He also said he didn't have to clear any mental hurdles during the course of the game, never overthinking the fact that he was playing on a surgically repaired knee.

Footballguys view: It could take a little time before he's totally ready to be the Jordy we know and love, so be patient. The Packers have a tough matchup this weekend in the Minnesota Vikings, so it might be another week before we see him give out the Full Nelson, but you can run him out as a WR2/WR3 with upside.
