  Packers | Justin McCray injury update    Fri Aug 17, 06:37 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers OG Justin McCray (calf) has been diagnosed with a calf contusion, according to a source.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow has sprained SC joint    Fri Aug 17, 04:52 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder) has been diagnosed with a sprained SC joint and likely will miss some time, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This could give a rookie an opening to take a spot that was destined for Kumerow, but it's more likely that his injury won't overshadow his very strong summer. He's a name to remember if he makes the team and injuries thin the Packers wide receiver group.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams expected to be fine    Fri Aug 17, 01:47 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) is 'fine' after departing a preseason game with an ankle sprain on Thursday, Aug. 16, according to a source.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow earning a roster spot?    Fri Aug 17, 01:02 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder/neck) suffered a minor stinger in Week 2 of the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16. He has caught six passes for 190 yards and touchdowns of 52 and 82 yards in the first two Packers preseason games. Kumerow has earned praise from veterans in the Green Bay locker room. 'One of the talks of camp, in my opinion,' CB Tramon Williams said after the game. 'He's been doing it all camp long. It's not like he's just showing up and having fluke games. He's been doing it all camp long.' In the opinion of writer Rob Demovsky, Kumerow 'has to be ahead of all three of them,' referring to the trio of rookie receivers drafted in 2018 by the Packers.

Footballguys view: Geronimo Allison appears to be set as the #3. If Kumerow makes that team, that leaves two spots at the most (unless the Packers keep seven receivers) for DeAngelo Yancey, Trevor Davis, and the rookie trio of J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The Packers could lose any of the rookies if they try to slip them through to the practice squad, so there will be some tough decisions to make.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow injures shoulder Thursday    Fri Aug 17, 02:37 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder) left the game with a shoulder injury in the third quarter of a preseason game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: It was just a stinger according to Kumerow. He should be fine for the third preseason game.

  Packers | Justin McCray hurt Thursday    Fri Aug 17, 01:30 AM

Green Bay Packers OL Justin McCray (calf) told reporters he could not definitively say whether he could have returned to the game after suffering a calf injury versus the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Aug. 16. However, he was not concerned about the injury being a long-term issue, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams injury update    Fri Aug 17, 01:25 AM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) told reporters he could not definitively say whether he could have returned to the game after suffering an ankle injury versus the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, Aug. 16. However, he was not concerned about the injury being a long-term issue, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Williams is ready for the third preseason game, but all reports are that he is fine and this is not a significant injury. The Packers could hold him out to make sure he's as healthy as possible for the opener against the Bears. The possibility of more work for Ty Montgomery to open the season just went up.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Richard Rodgers (knee) suffered a knee injury against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Aug. 16.

  Packers | Long score for Jake Kumerow    Thu Aug 16, 10:49 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow caught three passes for 114 yards, including an 82-yard touchdown, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Kumerow has been the subject of numerous positive reports, including from Aaron Rodgers. He may make the team at the expense of one of their draft picks, and if he doesn't, he might get claimed on waivers after a very strong summer.

  Packers | DeShone Kizer impresses Thursday    Thu Aug 16, 10:41 PM

Green Bay Packers QB DeShone Kizer completed seven of his 12 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Kizer looked better as a Packer than he did as a Brown, to no one's surprise. He's set to be Aaron Rodgers backup starting in 2019 after Brett Hundley becomes a free agent, and if Rodgers were to miss time this year, he could push Hundley for playing time.

  Packers | Short touchdown for Jimmy Graham     Thu Aug 16, 10:35 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham caught one pass, an eight-yard touchdown, against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Aaron Rodgers put the ball above the rim where only Graham could get it and was patient allowing Graham's route to develop. It looks like this connection will be in effect in the red zone and give Graham 8-10 touchdowns in a mean outcome with the possibility for more.

  Packers | Geronimo Allison taking hold of No. 3 WR job    Tue Aug 14, 02:10 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Geronimo Allison has 'quietly established himself as the team's No. 3 receiver,' according to Ryan Wood of The Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Footballguys view: With a healthy Aaron Rodgers, the Packers passing attack should be more dangerous in 2018. That makes Allison a player Fantasy GMs need to monitor and potentially add to their roster late in the draft. Allison has strong hands and has impressed all offseason as the no3 wideout in Green Bay. He's got a current ADP of WR54 (12.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers should play this week    Mon Aug 13, 04:18 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to play in Week 2 of the preseason, although he is less likely to play in the last two preseason games.

Footballguys view: Interesting to note they would play him in the second game more than the 'dress rehearsal' for the regular season aka week three of the preseason. Either way, the Packers are back in a Super Bowl window so long as Rodgers is their quarterback. Fantasy GMs are taking Rodgers at QB1 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Nick Perry could return soon    Mon Aug 13, 02:53 PM

Green Bay Packers LB Nick Perry (ankle) worked off to the side more Monday, Aug. 13, than he had since training camp started. He may be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future.

  Packers | David Bakhtiari returns from injury    Sun Aug 12, 06:09 PM

Green Bay Packers OT David Bakhtiari (ankle) participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 12. He missed a little over a week because of an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: This is a relief for the Packers, who have another starting tackle, Bryan Bulaga, coming back from a torn ACL. Bakhtiari was carted off at a scrimmage, so this is almost a best case scenario.

  Packers | Several defensive players back on field    Sun Aug 12, 06:03 PM

  Packers | Aaron Jones returns    Sun Aug 12, 02:54 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones was back at practice Sunday, Aug. 12. Jones had been sidelined since the first week of training camp with a hamstring injury.

Footballguys view: Jones is serving a two-game suspension to begin the season, so he needs to give the Packers coaches something to think about. Jamaal Williams will have a good chance to assert himself as the leader of the backfield, but he'll have to do it against the tough Chicago and Minnesota run defenses.

  Packers | Josh Jones injured    Fri Aug 10, 01:36 AM

Green Bay Packers SS Josh Jones (head) left the field in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion on Thursday, Aug. 9. S Jermaine Whitehead (back) also left the game with a back injury.

Footballguys view: Jones is an important player in the Packers defense and intriguing IDP commodity as a safety/linebacker tweener. We'll be watching for updates on his status.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow continues to impress    Fri Aug 10, 01:31 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow logged three receptions for 76 yards, including a 52-yard touchdown, against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Kumerow has been generating a lot of positive buzz, and that won't change after the preseason opener. He may cost a draft pick or incumbent young receiver a roster spot, and possibly even push to start. Remember his name, as Aaron Rodgers seems to trust the former Bengal.

  Packers | J'Mon Moore has tough night    Fri Aug 10, 01:26 AM

Green Bay Packers WR J'Mon Moore finished with three receptions for 27 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Moore had a hot start to camp, but he might not even be the top rookie receiver on the team despite being drafted earliest. Right now, he's falling off of the late round redraft flier list.

  Packers | Marquez Valdes-Scantling shines    Fri Aug 10, 01:14 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught five passes for a game-high 101 yards and a touchdown during the team's 31-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Aug. 9. Fellow rookie WR Equanimeous St. Brown was also solid, catching four passes for 61 yards.

Footballguys view: The derby for roster spots and playing time at wide receiver for the Packers gets more complicated with every new piece of data. Valdes-Scantling has the best size/speed combination of the three draft picks, but might need the most refinement. They won't try to slip him to the practice squad if this keeps up.

  Packers | Muhammed Wilkerson dealing with minor injury    Wed Aug 8, 09:50 PM

Green Bay Packers DE Muhammad Wilkerson (groin) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, because of a sore groin. The injury is not considered to be serious.

  Packers | DeAngelo Yancey gets first-team reps    Wed Aug 8, 02:40 AM

Green Bay Packers WR DeAngelo Yancey operated out of the slot with the first-team offense in the absence of WR Randall Cobb (ankle) on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Yancey also earned praise during post-practice comments from QB Aaron Rodgers, who said that Yancey 'has really progressed' from last season.

Footballguys view: So far the receivers with more experience in the system - Geronimo Allison and Yancey - and former Cincinnati Bengal practice squad receiver Jake Kumerow have received the best reviews from Rodgers in the battle for the #3 wide receiver spot. The rookies were the subject of his ire after a meeting and probably aren't situated to make an early impact.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham bothered by knee    Wed Aug 8, 02:27 AM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, due to a knee injury. Although it's considered minor, Graham is unlikely to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: With Graham's history of a catastrophic knee injury, even something minor bears watching. As long as he plays later in the preseason, we shouldn't be worried about this.

  Packers | Aaron Jones remains sidelined    Tue Aug 7, 02:40 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) is still not participating in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Jones is already suspended for the first two games, and now he might have trouble staking a claim to his share of the backfield this summer because of his hamstring injury. We'll get worried if he can't take the field by the third preseason game.

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, affer getting tangled up with Josh Jones in coverage Monday, Aug. 6. WR Randall Cobb (undisclosed) also was not spotted among the receiver group.

Footballguys view: Graham is at that more fragile part of his career after having serious knee surgery in 2015. Cobb can't seem to stay on the field for more than a few days. We'll be monitoring both situations.

  Packers | Randall Cobb practicing Monday    Mon Aug 6, 02:36 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 6.

Footballguys view: Cobb is working through this ankle problem so there might be some days where he gets limited work in camp. The veteran slot receiver presents a value for Fantasy GMs (if healthy) at WR34 (7.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | David Bakhtiari carted off field    Sun Aug 5, 09:12 AM

Green Bay Packers OT David Bakhtiari (ankle) was carted off the field and taken to the locker room after suffering a left ankle injury during practice Saturday, Aug. 4, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The severity of the injury is unknown.

Footballguys view: The injury ended up being not serious and the hope is that it won't keep him out of the season opener against Chicago. The Packers right tackle, Bryan Bulaga, is coming back from an ACL tear.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga absent from practice    Sat Aug 4, 08:44 PM

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is not practicing Saturday, Aug. 4. He is one day removed from being activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Bulaga is doing better than most projections, but the Packers will be cautious to give themselves the greatest chance of having him ready for Week 1.

  Packers | Possible injury for Randall Cobb?    Fri Aug 3, 09:23 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb (undisclosed) left practice early Friday, Aug. 3, and went inside with medical personnel. He returned to the field later in practice but did not participate in any drills.

Footballguys view: Cobb seemed to be healthy after a late offseason cleanup surgery. It is unclear whether this is related to that or a new issue. Cobb is still offering upside at his ADP, but this reminds us why his ADP has been depressed in recent years.

  Packers | Jake Kumerow making claim for roster spot    Fri Aug 3, 03:06 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jake Kumerow 'might have been a second- or third-best receiver' behind Davante Adams on the roster through the first week of practice,' according to longtime Green Bay sportswriter Bob McGinn.

Footballguys view: Kumerow is a tall receiver, but he is a precise route runner. He fits the Packers recent penchant for adding big receivers, but has more polish and could be a surprise candidate to start opposite Adams Week 1 against Chicago. Deep dynasty league players should remember his name.

Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga (knee) passed his physical and will practice Friday, Aug. 3. He'll come off the Physically Unable to Perform list and has impressed the team in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: This is good news for a Packers team that is trying to find solutions at other positions on the offensive line. The hope is that he'll get back up to speed without any problems.

  Packers | Aaron Jones remains sidelined    Thu Aug 2, 03:13 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 2.

Footballguys view: Jones, who is suspended for the first two games of the season, is already looking up at Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery. The sooner Jones is back, the better his chances of getting his share of carries back after his suspension. His ADP has already dropped to 42, while Williams has become the 34th back coming off the board. The situation could end up a bit muddy, but it looks like Williams has the edge.
