In a decision clearly pandering to disgruntled QB Aaron Rodgers, the Packers spent Pick 29 of the 2021 NFL Draft on Georgia CB Eric Stokes. The former Bulldog defensed 22 passes over 3 seasons and grabbed 4 INTs in just 9 games last year. Stokes then ran a 4.29-second 40 at his pro day. He figures to compete for Kevin King's starting job opposite Jaire Alexander.
Packers CB Kevin King (back) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. He turned up questionable after missing Friday's practice with a back issue but appears good to go.
Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He's a high-upside sack threat vs. a Philly team that has allowed the most in the league.
Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Smith sustained an ankle injury in Thursday's practice and then sat out Friday -- a worrisome progression for his game status. We'll keep an eye on reports for Smith over the weekend and check his status Sunday afternoon.
Packers CB Kevin King (Achilles' tendon) is active for today's game against the Colts.
Packers CBs Jaire Alexander (concussion) and Kevin King (quad) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars.
The Packers have activated LB Christian Kirksey. He has been out since Week 3 with a right shoulder injury. Green Bay has had no one settle in as a regular with starter-level playing time at ILB since Kirksey went down. We're treating him as a starter right away for his 1st game back Sunday against Jacksonville. Check out where Kirksey lands in our Week 10 IDP rankings.
Packers CB Jaire Alexander (concussion, hand) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. CB Kevin King (quad) is questionable. So Green Bay will likely miss at least 1 of its top 2 corners and perhaps both. That's good news for D.J. Chark, but there's not much else to use in the Jacksonville passing game.
Packers lead CB Jaire Alexander left Thursday night's game against San Francisco with a concussion. Losing Alexander didn't matter against a depleted 49ers offense, but we'll see how much longer he remains out. ILB Krys Barnes also left the game early with a calf injury and did not return. We'll see whether Christian Kirksey can get back into the mix for Week 10. Kirksey has been out since Week 3 with a shoulder injury.
Packers OLB Preston Smith (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Texans. He's a low-level IDP but available if you had him in your plans.
Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is active for today's game against the Buccaneers. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.
Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. He put in full practices Wednesday and Thursday before being limited Friday. We'll check his status Sunday.
Packers DT Kenny Clark is inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons. He's been out since suffering a groin injury in Week 1. CB Jaire Alexander and OLB Za'Darius Smith are active and available for IDP lineups.
The Packers have placed LB Christian Kirksey (pectoral) on IR. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, starting with the Monday night Falcons clash we already knew he'd miss. That also should make LB Ty Summers a starter for those 3 games. If he didn't already get claimed off waivers in your IDP league, go ahead and grab him.
Packers CB Jaire Alexander (hand, knee) popped up on the injury report Saturday as questionable for Monday night's game against the Falcons. He missed practice Saturday after practicing in full Thursday and Friday. Don't wait for him Monday night unless you have a replacement from the same game. DT Kenny Clark (groin) and OLB Za'Darius Smith (ankle) are questionable for the game. Each put in limited practices all week. Clark has been out since suffering his injury in Week 1 and doesn't make for a great IDP bet. Smith is worth waiting for if you were planning to start him and have insurance available. Falcons LB Foye Oluokun looks like a potential replacement option.
