Most Recent Shark Bites

The Packers have designated CB Jaire Alexander to return from IR. HC Matt LaFleur told reporters Wednesday that Alexander would be taking part in individual drills only, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. Alexander has been out since Week 4 with a shoulder injury, so we wouldn't be surprised if he's not quite ready for Sunday night's game against the Bears. Green Bay has 3 weeks now to decide whether to return their lead CB to the active roster or deactivate him for the season. When/if Alexander does return, it would likely push CB Rasul Douglas to a reserve role.

Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell landed on the COVID list Tuesday after testing positive, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Fortunately for Campbell, Green Bay gets a Week 13 bye. We'll see whether the virus challenges his availability for Week 14.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has decided against surgery on his fractured toe "at this time," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Rodgers had been considering a procedure over the bye week but will instead opt for just rest and rehab. It sounds like offseason surgery is still a possibility. Although he's admitted that the toe is an issue, it hasn't impacted his play over the last 2 weeks. Rodgers has racked up 692 passing yards with 6 TDs.

Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered a groin injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and won't return. He was having a big one before exiting, catching 4 balls for 95 yards and a score. Cobb's absence leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard as Green Bay's 2nd and 3rd WRs.

2:57pm EST 11/28/21

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He’s not a real fantasy option, but his return puts a slight dent in WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s target projection.

2:57pm EST 11/28/21

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He’s 2 weeks removed from spraining his MCL and was limited in practice all week. It’s completely unclear how big a role Jones will play today, leaving him as a risky fantasy play. Don’t be surprised if RB A.J. Dillon ends up with more touches.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero report that Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Rams. Pelissero says there's "some optimism" that Jones will play. Schefter says Jones "wants to play" but suggests that the Packers' Week 13 bye might factor into the final decision. This game doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET, so we won't get Green Bay's inactives until 3 pm. If you're hoping to use Jones today, you'll need a late-game alternative lined up. A.J. Dillon would go from RB1 to RB3 if Jones ends up active.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams after a limited week of practice. He’s not a real fantasy option, but Lazard’s return would put a dent in WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s target projection.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. He was limited in practice all week. HC Matt LaFleur said Friday that Jones will be evaluated again on Saturday and that a final decision on his availability might not come until pregame warmups. Rams-Packers doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET, but we’ll continue to look for updates on Jones’ status.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Thursday. After HC Matt LaFleur's press conference, The Athletic's Matt Schneidman tweeted that it "sounds like" Jones will be a game-time decision for Sunday's meeting with the Rams. We'll get another update on Jones tomorrow.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. He was expected to miss 1-2 weeks with his sprained MCL, so it's possible that he's back for Sunday's game vs. the Rams. It's worth noting, though, that Green Bay has a Week 13 bye, which might factor into the decision on whether to play Jones this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told (and showed) the media on Wednesday that he's dealing with a fractured toe. He's admitted that it's an issue but certainly didn't seem bothered by it while throwing for 385 yards and 4 TDs in last week's loss to the Vikings. We'll continue to keep an eye on him but aren't adjusting Rodgers' Week 12 projections. The Packers have a Week 13 bye.

Packers HC Matt LaFleur said RB Aaron Jones (knee) "will be on the field at practice" Wednesday, per insider Tom Silverstein. We'll see how Jones is listed on the official practice report later today, but it sounds like he has some chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Rams. Stay tuned.

Packers EDGE Rashan Gary (elbow) is inactive for today's game against the Vikings, leaving Green Bay without a key edge rusher. DL Kingsley Keke (concussion) is active.

11:32am EST 11/21/21

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Vikings. That leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb as Green Bay’s clear #2 and #3 WRs.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' toe injury is "real and concerning," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. Rodgers downplayed the issue this week, but he only got in a limited practice on Friday. And, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Rodgers only took about 15 reps in that practice. The lack of practice time is less of a concern than the fact that Rodgers' mobility figures to be limited by this injury. And Rapoport hears that Rodgers will likely be dealing with it for the rest of the season. We'll see how he fares vs. the Vikings today.

Packers WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. His absence should make WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Randall Cobb close to full-time players. Both guys are still just fantasy fliers, though.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 12, but a Week 14 return -- after a Week 13 bye -- seems most likely. RB A.J. Dillon should get heavy volume this weekend.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (toe) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never sensed any concern about his status. The toe shouldn't be a factor in Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He didn't seem worried about his Week 11 status when talking to reporters on Wednesday, but this has certainly become a situation to monitor. We'll get another update tomorrow.
