 Latest Packers Player Notes
Sep 21 2017 - Jason Spriggs
  T Jason Spriggs, one of the biggest disappointments of training camp, was placed on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury.


Sep 21 2017 - Jake Ryan
  ILB Jake Ryan has yet to practice this week due to a hamstring injury and a concussion.


Sep 21 2017 - Davon House
  CB Davon House, a free-agent acquisition from Jacksonville, has missed the last two practices with a quadriceps injury.


Sep 21 2017 - Randall Cobb
  WR Randall Cobb (chest) did not participate Thursday for a second straight day.


Sep 21 2017 - Ahmad Brooks
  OLB Ahmad Brooks (concussion) has been a full participant all week and should be ready to go Sunday. Brooks suffered a concussion in Week 1 and missed Week 2. "I thought that I was ready to go (last) Wednesday or Thursday, but they told me I wasn't ready, so they kept me out last game," Brooks said. "It's not frustrating. It's just unfortunate. I really wanted to come here and show what I was all about from the jump and that's the very first game of the season. I was upset that I couldn't do that at that time."


Sep 21 2017 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson, who left early in Week 2 with a quadriceps injury, has been a full participant the last two days and appears likely to play Sunday. "Feels good," Nelson said. "Better than probably what probably I think I and some other people in this building thought I would, so we're progressing the right way. It was great to get back out there and run around, and everything felt good." DE Mike Daniels left early in Week 2 with a hip injury. Green Bay signed veteran Ricky Jean Francois Wednesday, a sign that Daniels might not be ready for a while. "I've been working out, just still working on my craft, make sure I stay in shape just in case anybody gave me that call," Jean Francois said. "I went and worked out for the Saints on Tuesday and then came back up here. Then I was gonna go to Dallas but then I got called in the midst of heading that way."


Sep 21 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  RT Bryan Bulaga missed Weeks 1 and 2 with a sprained ankle. Bulaga was a full participant Wednesday and a limited participant Thursday. Bulaga, who entered the league in 2010, has missed 34 games in his career.


Sep 21 2017 - David Bakhtiari
  LT David Bakhtiari, who missed Week 2 with a hamstring injury, did not participate Thursday for a second straight day. "I've never really experienced an injury to a hamstring so I don't know," Bakhtiari said. "I'm just doing whatever the protocol is and attacking it to the best of my ability to show them whenever they feel it's safe for me to go out there and play."


Sep 21 2017 - Nick Perry
  OLB Nick Perry will undergo hand surgery later this week. It marks the second straight year Perry will have hand surgery. "He's a violent football player," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "He's physical. He plays the game the right way. If you look at his play style, I mean that's really part of his game, the violence that he plays with, with his hands." The Packers signed Perry to a five-year, $60 million contract in March despite a lengthy injury history. Perry missed 20 games in his first five years and has never played a full season. "Until we get through the surgery, I don't really have a timeline for you," McCarthy said.


Sep 21 2017 - Nick Perry
  LB Nick Perry is scheduled to undergo surgery on his hand for the second straight year. Coach Mike McCarthy announced the news on Thursday, but did not reveal how long Perry will be sidelined or even if the injury will keep him out of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. "Until we get through the surgery, I don't really have a timeline for you," McCarthy said.


Sep 20 2017 - Nick Perry
  OLB Nick Perry sat out Wednesday's practice with an unknown injury.


Sep 20 2017 - Randall Cobb
  WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. His status for Sunday is questionable.

  DE Mike Daniels lasted just seven plays against Atlanta, before leaving with an injured left hamstring.


Sep 18 2017 - Jason Spriggs

Sep 18 2017 - Ahmad Brooks
  OLB Ahmad Brooks, signed on Aug. 30, missed the game with a concussion he suffered in Green Bay's Week 1 win over Seattle.


Sep 18 2017 - Mike Daniels
  DE Mike Daniels left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. Daniels, arguably Green Bay's best defensive player, had 1.5 sacks, forced a fumble and had five tackles in the Week 1 win over Seattle.


Sep 18 2017 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson left in the first quarter because of a quadriceps injury. Nelson had 97 receptions for 1,257 yards and 14 touchdowns last season after missing all of 2015 with a torn ACL.


Sep 18 2017 - Justin McCray
  OL Justin McCray, normally a center, started at left tackle Sunday due to injuries. It was the first NFL start for McCray.


Sep 18 2017 - Kyle Murphy
  OT Kyle Murphy started at right tackle Sunday due to injuries. It was the second NFL start for Murphy.


Sep 18 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle) missed his second game, and left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) also couldn't go Sunday. With swing tackle Jason Spriggs (hamstring) also inactive, the Packers had to start Justin McCray, normally a center, at left tackle and Kyle Murphy at right tackle. It was the second NFL start for Murphy and first for McCray.


Sep 18 2017 - Mike Daniels
  DT Mike Daniels strained a hamstring early in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.


Sep 18 2017 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson left the game in the first quarter with a quad injury.


Sep 18 2017 - Davante Adams
  WR Davante Adams had eight catches for 99 yards, including a 33-yard touchdown grab.


Sep 18 2017 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers, who lost favorite receiver Jordy Nelson to a quad injury in the first quarter and was playing behind a depleted offensive line, completed 33 of 50 passes for 343 yards in the loss Sunday. He threw for two touchdowns and was picked off once. "It was a tough situation with the Falcons' defensive line and the loud environment," Rodgers said of the Packers missing both starting tackles. "But we adjusted and started playing well." Rodgers connected with Davante Adams for 33 yards and hit Ty Montgomery from 1 yard for his touchdowns.


Sep 14 2017 - Mike Daniels
  DT Mike Daniels was a limited participant at practice Thursday with a hip injury.


Sep 14 2017 - Kentrell Brice
  S Kentrell Brice was a new addition to the injury report Thursday with a quadriceps and knee injury.


Sep 14 2017 - Montravius Adams
  Rookie DT Montravius Adams, who suffered a broken foot early in training camp, is getting closer to a return. Adams was a limited participant in practice the last two days.


Sep 14 2017 - Ahmad Brooks
  OLB Ahmad Brooks is in concussion protocol and has missed the last two days of practice.


Sep 14 2017 - David Bakhtiari
  LT David Bakhtiari was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday due to a hamstring injury. Bakhtiari, Green Bay's best offensive lineman, has missed just two regular-season games in his five-year career.


Sep 14 2017 - Jason Spriggs
  T Jason Spriggs suffered a hamstring injury against Seattle in Week 1 and will not play Sunday in Atlanta. "I would say Jason is going to be a couple more weeks," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. Spriggs, a second round draft pick in 2016, was expected to be Green Bay's No. 3 tackle this season. But Spriggs had a rough summer and lost that job to second-year man Kyle Murphy.


Sep 14 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  RT Bryan Bulaga missed Week 1 with a sprained ankle, and he's been sent home from practice the last two days with flu-like symptoms. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he won't know about Bulaga's availability for Sunday's showdown in Atlanta until they can fully test the ankle. "I don't really have a feel for Brian because we haven't worked him since I think Tuesday, or Monday, on his ankle," McCarthy said. "So we've got to hopefully see where he is (Friday). But just speaking with Bryan (Thursday) when he came in, you know, he was dehydrated and things like that. So, we'll just take the week."


Sep 14 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  RT ryan Bulaga was sent home from practice for the second straight day on Thursday due to illness. The illness has prevented Bulaga from testing his injured ankle, which caused him to miss Green Bay's 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Should the illness and/or injury sideline the 28-year-old Bulaga, Kyle Murphy would draw the start again on Sunday (8:30 p.m. ET) against the Atlanta Falcons (1-0) at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.


Sep 14 2017 - Adam Pankey
  OL Adam Pankey was activated from the practice squad Wednesday. Pankey, an undrafted rookie free agent from West Virginia, played both tackle and guard during training camp, but had his best moments at guard.


Sep 11 2017 - Kyle Murphy
  RT Bryan Bulaga missed the game against Seattle with a sprained ankle that's lingered for nearly three weeks. That marked the 33rd game Bulaga has missed in a career that started in 2010. In his stead, the Packers turned to second-year man Kyle Murphy, who was active just three games a year ago. And while Murphy had his share of trouble against the elite Seahawks' defense, he held up well in Green Bay's huge early-season win. "It's his first start, but he doesn't blink," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said of Murphy. "His personality is perfect for this situation. So, we went five-man protection a bunch. So, it isn't like we parked someone behind him all day in there. He had to play and he played big today." Murphy was at least partially responsible for two of the four first-half sacks allowed to quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But Murphy, a former sixth-round draft choice, seemed to get better as the game went on and helped the Packers' offense get rolling after a scoreless first half. "I thought Kyle did a really nice job at right tackle," Rodgers said. "This is a good building block for us moving forward."

"I thought Kyle did a really nice job at right tackle," Rodgers said. "This is a good building block for us moving forward."


Sep 11 2017 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson eclipsed 500 career receptions, becoming just the fourth Packers player in team history to do so. Nelson, who now has 504 career catches, joined Donald Driver, Sterling Sharpe and James Lofton in that exclusive club.


Sep 11 2017 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers appeared to be limping at times against Seattle. It was nothing serious, though, as Rodgers had both feet stepped on and was kicked in the shins. "The adult soccer players who don't wear shin guards can probably relate," Rodgers said. "It's very painful. You kind of forget about those things when you don't play a whole lot in preseason. But, yeah, it was mostly that - just kicked a couple times, stepped on a couple times."


Sep 11 2017 - Ahmad Brooks
  OLB Ahmad Brooks, signed on Aug. 30, left the game with a concussion. Brooks will enter the concussion protocol and his availability for the Packers' game at Atlanta Sunday won't be known until later this week.


Sep 11 2017 - Randall Cobb
  WR Randall Cobb had a game-high 9 catches for 85 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.


Sep 11 2017 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers was 28 of 42 for 311 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. He also rushed for 21 yards. However, Rodgers' interception-free streak was snapped at 251 attempts on Green Bay's opening possession. Rodgers' streak was the second-longest in team history behind Bart Starr's 294 passes in 1964.


Sep 10 2017 - Jordy Nelson
  WR Jordy Nelson caught seven passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seahawks. While doing so, he became the fourth player in franchise history with 500 receptions.


Sep 10 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  Green Bay Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga was inactive with an ankle injury for Sunday's season opener against the Seattle Seahawks. Bulaga, who returned to practice last week after hurting his ankle in August, was listed on Friday's injury report as questionable. Kyle Murphy will get the start in Bulaga's place while right guard Jahri Evans will be making his first regular-season start for the Packers.


Sep 6 2017 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers enters Sunday's game with the highest career passer rating in NFL history (104.1). Seattle's Russell Wilson. who faces Rodgers and the Packers Sunday, is No. 2 (99.6).


Sep 6 2017 - Don Barclay
  T Don Barclay was placed on the injured reserve list and possibly designated for return, meaning he can't return until Week 9. Barclay suffered an ankle injury during Green Bay's Aug. 10 preseason game against Philadelphia and hasn't played since.


Sep 6 2017 - Montravius Adams
  DT Montravius Adams, a promising third-round draft choice from Clemson, suffered a stress fracture in his foot in late July and missed the rest of training camp. Adams returned to practice on a limited basis Monday, but seems unlikely to play for at least a few weeks. The Packers could still put Adams on the injured reserve/designated to return list, which would shut him down for the first eight weeks of the year. For now, though, Adams remains on the Packers' 53-man roster, meaning they're optimistic he won't need the full eight weeks to recover.


Sep 6 2017 - Bryan Bulaga
  RT Bryan Bulaga is Green Bay's No. 1 injury concern heading into Sunday's game with Seattle. Bulaga sprained an ankle on Aug. 23 and missed the following two weeks. Bulaga returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis. Seattle has one of the NFL's top DE duos in Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, and Green Bay could have serious issues if it had to play backups Kyle Murphy or Jason Spriggs.
