Packers RB Aaron Jones (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected to play vs. the Cowboys this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Packers WR Christian Watson did not sustain a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Lions, HC Matt LaFleur said. Watson took a hit to the chest, lost his breath but was held out only as a precaution after he was concussed in Week 8 in Buffalo, LaFleur explained. Watson has cleared concussion protocol already and will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Doubs is undergoing further testing to get a better idea of how long he'll be out, but Rapoport notes that these tend to be 4-6 week injuries. We're unlikely to see Doubs again until December, so he can be dropped in standard-sized fantasy leagues. Allen Lazard is locked in as Green Bay's #1 WR going forward.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that tests on the injured ankle of Packers RB Aaron Jones came back negative Monday and that Jones "should be able to play this week." We'll be tracking Jones' status throughout the week to confirm, but it appears fantasy football managers dodged a bullet here. Green Bay hosts the Cowboys on Sunday.

Packers EDGE Rashan Gary tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss to the Lions, an MRI confirmed Monday. That will end his season and leave Green Bay's defense without it's top-performing pass-rusher. Kingsley Enagbare and Jonathan Garvin figure to both get more playing time with Gary out. We'll see about Gary's status heading into 2023, the 5th and final year of his rookie contract.

X-rays on Packers RB Aaron Jones' left ankle came back clean, he told reporters after the loss to Detroit. "A little sore," Jones said. "I was fine. They sent me for X-rays. X-rays were fine, but they decided to hold me [out]. It was frustrating because I felt like I could have went, but they were being smart. I definitely respect them, because after I stopped moving around and I sat still for a while, it got kind of sore." It sounds like Jones avoided a serious injury, but we should learn more tomorrow.

Packers RB Aaron Jones' left foot was in a walking boot after Sunday's loss to the Lions. He suffered an ankle injury in the 3rd quarter of that one and didn't return. We should learn more about the injury on Monday. Jones' absence would leave A.J. Dillon as Green Bay's feature back.

Packers EDGE Rashan Gary left Sunday's loss to the Lions on a cart with a right knee injury. He was seen using crutches after the game, according to Nick Menner of WLUK Fox 11. We'll see about the severity of Gary's injury. he'll be a big loss for the Green Bay defense if he's set to miss further time.

RB AJ Dillon led the Packers in carries at Detroit on Sunday, with Aaron Jones leaving early for an ankle injury. Dillon ran for just 34 yards on his 11 attempts, though, adding 10 yards on 2 catches among 4 targets. Jones left after rushing 9 times for 25 yards and 2-20 receiving. Kylin Hill claimed the only other RB rush in the game. We'll see about Jones' status for next Sunday's matchup with Dallas.

Packers RB Aaron Jones is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Lions with an ankle injury. The broadcast showed him jogging back to the locker room, so it doesn't look like a serious injury. We'll update the situation when we know more.

Packers WR Christian Watson left in the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Lions to be checked for a concussion. The rookie was just concussed in last week's loss to Buffalo. Stay tuned for an update.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs suffered an ankle injury on an 18-yard catch on the team's 1st offensive snap of Sunday's game in Detroit. He needed help to get off the field and was carted to the locker room. Doubs is officially questionable to return but seems highly unlikely to do so.

Update: Doubs has been ruled out.

Packers EDGE Preston Smith (shoulder, neck) is active for today's game against the Lions.

The Packers have ruled LB De'Vondre Campbell (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. DC Joe Barry said earlier in the week that rookie LB Quay Walker would take over play-calling duties if Campbell couldn't go. That should mean full playing time for Walker, who has moved up our Week 9 IDP rankings. EDGE Preston Smith (shoulder, neck) is questionable for the game after being limited in practice all week.

Packers WR Christian Watson (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Lions. We'll update Watson's progress again tomorrow.

Packers RB Aaron Jones delivered 143 yards on 20 carries in Sunday night's loss to the Bills. Green Bay stuck to a surprisingly run-heavy approach despite falling 17 points behind by the 4th quarter. It was less hard to understand giving the ball to Jones, who averaged 7.2 yards per rush. He added 14 yards on 4 catches (5 targets). A.J. Dillon also produced 54 yards on 10 carries, though half of that came via a single 27-yard run. Jones again worked clearly ahead of Dillon, the 3rd such game among Green Bay's past 4. Buffalo entered the game as the league's #1 run defense by Football Outsiders DVOA.

Packers LB De'Vondre Campbell left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Bills with a right-knee injury. He was shown walking to the locker room with ice on the knee but is questionable to return.

Update: Campbell has been ruled out for the game.

Packers rookie LB Quay Walker got ejected in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game at Buffalo for shoving someone on the Bills' sideline after a play. We'll see whether Walker faces any further discipline.

Packers WR Christian Watson has been ruled out of Sunday night's game vs. the Bills with a concussion. The rookie had just returned from a hamstring injury. His exit leaves QB Aaron Rodgers with WRs Sammy Watkins, Romeo Doubs, Amari Rodgers and Samori Toure.

Packers WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Bills. We’ll see if the rookie can help get this passing game going, but he’s really only an option in 1-game DFS contests.
