  Packers | Randall Cobb a game-time call    Fri Sep 22, 11:12 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) will be a game-time decision in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Geronimo Allison would get more snaps if Cobb is out and Martellus Bennett might get more targets in the middle of the field. This is an afternoon game, so make sure you have a late game/night game option to swap out for Cobb if you want to wait this out.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson full go Thursday    Thu Sep 21, 04:20 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Great news for a Packers team which, between Randall Cobb's issues and injuries to the offensive line, needs it. Against a vulnerable Cincinnati secondary, Nelson should have a solid game and produce WR2 numbers.

  Packers | Randall Cobb still sidelined     Thu Sep 21, 01:44 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) has yet to practice this week after not practicing Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Early reports indicated the chest injury was no big deal, but this seems to prove otherwise and every day which passes makes it less likely he will play, or worse, he will but not do anything. Worse, he could be a game time decision for a game which kicks off at 4:25pm EST. You may have to make that decision very early on, but we'll keep you up to date here on the wire and in Joe Bryant's newsletters.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson expects to play Sunday    Wed Sep 20, 11:56 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quad) said his 'expectations are to play' in the team's Week 3 game Sunday, Sept. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported Nelson is "50-50" to play. The offense is much different without him, so the Packers and Aaron Rodgers want him back. We're projecting him as playing, with expectations that he should put up some decent WR2 numbers. Two things to keep in mind, however. We don't know how healthy he will really be, and he could be limited in a way which hurts his numbers. The Packers could also get out ahead--and way ahead by the looks of Cincinnati so far this season--which could impact his playing time. If they don't need to throw much, they won't have to risk further injury. As we said, we expect some good numbers from him, but there is some risk.

  Packers | GB to lighten Ty Montgomery's workload?    Wed Sep 20, 11:44 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery figures to receive less work in the weeks ahead, according to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Montgomery has played more snaps (139) than any other running back in the NFL -- putting him on pace for 1,112 -- and there have been just four tailbacks who logged more than 900 snaps in a season over the last five years. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he's 'definitely aware of it' and added, 'That's what game plans are for.'

Footballguys view: And this was what we feared in preseason--that the team would feel he couldn't hold up or that they would do what the Packers often do, which is decide running the ball isn't a thing football teams do much. While Montgomery has been on the field a lot, he has only touched the ball 39 times and last week he only saw 16 total touches including receptions. This is not a guy who is being overworked right now. So what does this mean? We'll see more Jamaal Williams for sure, and perhaps a little more involvement from tight ends. All this could tamp down Montgomery's overall value, yet we still really like him against a horrible Bengals team. We're optimistic that he will have a solid RB1 day against a very bad team.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson practices in full    Wed Sep 20, 06:58 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

  Packers | Randall Cobb does not practice    Wed Sep 20, 06:48 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Cobb is getting some rest on Wednesday but could practice later in the week and play on Sunday. Geronimo Allison would be the no3 wide receiver for the Packers if Cobb was unable to go against the Bengals.

  Packers | Martellus Bennett struggling with fundamentals?    Tue Sep 19, 10:33 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Martellus Bennett finished with five catches for 47 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons but committed four drops - a problem offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett believes is rooted in fundamentals.

Footballguys view: Multiple drops and a pass interference penalty hurt Bennett's production in Week 2. He's got eight receptions for 90 yards over the first two weeks of the season, but fantasy owners were expecting more in a high-powered Packers passing attack. We'll see if Bennett can round into form as the season goes on.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson 50-50 for Week 3    Tue Sep 19, 08:16 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) is '50-50' to play in Week 3, according to a source, but his quadriceps strain isn't considered serious.

Footballguys view: We'll know more as the week goes on. If the quad strain isn't serious, then Nelson should be available for Week 3 but it's too early to tell. We should see Nelson limited during practice this week as the Packers prepare for a home game against the Bengals.

  Packers | Randall Cobb is day-to-day    Mon Sep 18, 04:45 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb's (shoulder) MRI revealed no significant damage to his injured shoulder. He is considered day-to-day, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The MRI is good news, but it still gives no clarity as to when Cobb will be back on the field. If Cobb is down, and Jordy Nelson (quad) is banged up, we could see Davante Adams get a large chunk of the passing game. Geronimo Allison could move up the depth chart if Cobb misses time.

  Packers | Randall Cobb to have MRI    Mon Sep 18, 12:14 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 18, on the shoulder injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 game.

Footballguys view: The Packers WR corps is quite banged up right now with Cobb and Jordy Nelson (quad) battling injuries. That could force Davante Adams into the no1 role for this offense, and it makes Geronimo Allison a potential waiver wire addition in deeper leagues.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison making strides    Sat Sep 16, 12:36 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison has 'made the leap' in his second year, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'He's bigger, stronger, playing with a ton of confidence,' McCarthy said. 'He can play all four positions in the wide receiver room, and he's a playmaker.'

Footballguys view: Allison is a dynasty prospect we are monitoring closely. Undrafted out of Illinois last year, Allison served a one-game suspension to begin this season. Now that he's back, Allison will work into the mix as the Packers no4 wide receiver behind Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.

Footballguys view: This is not a good week for the Packers to be missing a cornerstone of their line as they face the toughest pass rush in the league backed up by one of the best linebacker duos and secondary trios. Aaron Rodgers stays in your lineup, but don't be surprised if he has some rough moments.
