Shark Bites

Packers TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. The team has been managing his practice reps all season, but this is the 1st time he's sat out 2 straight practices since Week 3. He ended up playing a season-low 41% of the offensive snaps and posting a goose egg that Sunday. We'll get another update on Graham tomorrow, but he's shaping up as a shaky Week 7 play.

Green Bay's top 3 WRs -- Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) and Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) -- remained sidelined on Thursday. We still believe MVS has a good shot to play this weekend against the Raiders, but Adams and Allison seem doubtful. We just moved Aaron Rodgers down the Week 7 QB rankings.

Packers WRs Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle, knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion, chest) did not practice on Wednesday. MVS was able to return from his injuries this past Monday night, so we're expecting him to play this weekend against the Raiders. Adams and Allison seem truly questionable. Next up on the depth chart are Jake Kumerow, Allen Lazard and Darrius Shepherd.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Lions after colliding helmet-to-helmet with Detroit S Tracy Walker. It'll be surprising if Allison doesn't enter the league concussion protocol off that play, but we'll see about the diagnosis.

Packers WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling left in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Lions after apparently hurting his left knee. MVS was blocking and had a defensive player roll into the back of his leg. We'll keep an eye on his status.

Update: MVS returned to the field for the start of the 2nd half.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He'll return for Monday night's game against the Lions. Williams had basically worked himself into an even timeshare with Aaron Jones before the concussion. Then Jones busted out for 182 yards and 4 TDs with Williams out last week. We're guessing that earns Jones lead duties on Monday night -- but Williams' return still puts a dent in his Week 6 outlook.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Lions. He didn't practice all week and admitted on Thursday that his turf toe is a "major injury." Adams shouldn't be considered a lock to return for Week 7. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow will again serve as Green Bay’s top 3 WRs on Monday night.

Packers WR Davante Adams "didn't sound optimistic" about his chances of playing Monday night against the Lions when he spoke to reporters on Thursday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "It doesn't feel how I want it to feel at the moment," Adams said. Per Demovsky, the team is leery of rushing Adams back and having him aggravate the turf toe. He should be on fantasy benches right now.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. That puts him on track to return for Monday night's game against the Lions. Williams had basically worked himself into an even timeshare with Aaron Jones before the concussion. We're guessing Jones operates as the lead back on Monday night after his huge Week 5 -- but Williams' return certainly adds risk to Jones' outlook.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. Consider him no better than 50/50 to return for Monday night's game against the Lions. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. Rookie Dexter Williams figures to step into the #2 RB role — but Aaron Jones should get feature-back usage in Dallas. He registered an 84% snap rate, 13 carries and 7 targets last week.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. His injury is reportedly minor, but he didn’t practice all week and shouldn’t be considered a lock to return for Week 6. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will operate as Green Bay’s top 2 WRs vs. Dallas.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play in Dallas this weekend, leaving Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 2 WRs.

Packers WR Davante Adams (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last Friday that Adams might not miss much time with his turf toe, but fantasy owners should at least be making plans to be without him in Week 5. Adams' absence would leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 2 WRs against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Packers WR Davante Adams' turf toe is "not believed to be serious," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The team will be careful with their star pass-catcher. But if he misses time, it may not be much," Rapoport adds. This is about the best news Adams owners could have hoped for. We're still going to keep an eye on this because toe injuries can be tough to recover from. But it at least looks like Adams isn't staring at an extended absence.

Packers WR Davante Adams told reporters after Thursday night's game that he has turf toe and will see Dr. Robert Anderson to get it examined. The severity of the injury will determine how long Adams is sidelined. But as we saw last night, turf toe is almost impossible to play through. Adams' absence would leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison as Green Bay's top 2 WRs. Darrius Shepard and Allen Lazard filled in for Adams on Thursday night. Jake Kumerow is a better bet than either of those guys but is dealing with a shoulder injury. TE Jimmy Graham would also project to see more volume with Adams out. He racked up 9 targets last night.

Packers WR Davante Adams left early in the 4th quarter of Thursday night's game against the Eagles after hurting his right leg or foot. He could be seen pulling on the foot, perhaps trying to stretch out a muscle issue after a reception. Adams then left the field for the goal-line portion of the possession and was hobbling around on the sideline. We'll obviously keep an eye on this situation. Adams had been enjoying a big night against a bad Philly secondary.

Update: Erin Andrews reports that Adams is questionable to return with a toe injury.

Packers RB Jamaal Williams was carted off the field in the 1st quarter of Thursday night's game against the Eagles after taking a helmet to helmet hit. The good news is that Williams was moving, but he's obviously done for the night. We'll update his status when we learn more. Aaron Jones will serve as Green Bay's feature back the rest of the way.

Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith is active for tonight's game against the Eagles. That puts him in play for IDP lineups and keeps Green Bay's hot-starting pass rush intact.

Packers OLB Za'Darius Smith is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. He wasn't on the injury report to start the week but popped up with limited practices Tuesday and Wednesday. If Smith can't go, then we'd likely see more Rashan Gary and Kyler Fackrell -- though Fackrell's also questionable (shoulder).
