Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday. It's looking like he'll miss this weekend's game vs. the Vikings, giving Jamaal Williams another game as Green Bay's lead back.

Packers K Mason Crosby missed Wednesday's practice with left calf and back injuries. If you're a Crosby owner, you might want to line up an alternative for Week 8. We'll continue to monitor his status.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing against the Texans this past weekend, but this obviously isn't a great start for his chances of returning for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Check back tomorrow for another update.

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.

11:10am EDT 10/25/20

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so don’t expect him to be at 100% today. That leaves Tonyan as a risk/reward TE1 in today’s plus matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He suffered a mild calf strain on Thursday and reportedly wanted to play today. But the always-cautious Packers medical staff is holding him out. We’ll see if Jones can make it back for Week 8. Jamaal Williams figures to lead the Green Bay backfield today and is a strong fantasy play. Rookie A.J. Dillon should also take on an expanded role in the running game and is a RB3 or flex option in non-PPR leagues.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is expected to play against the Texans today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tonyan only got in a limited practice on Friday but was able to play through this injury last week. Assuming he ends up active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) remains a game-time decision for today's tilt with the Texans, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones made the trip to Houston and is pushing to play. But "if Jones isn't 100%, he won't go," Pelissero adds. We're still betting on Jones being inactive but will find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

Packers beat writer Ryan Woods tweets," The plan is for [Aaron] Jones to not play v Texans." Jones reportedly believes he can play, but the team is expected to play it safe. Jones' absence would leave Green Bay's backfield to Jamaal Williams, A.J. Dillon and practice-squad call-up Dexter Williams. Jamaal is a virtual lock to handle the pass-catching work and is the odds-on favorite to lead the backfield in carries. Check out our updated projections for the Packers backfield.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. We’ll find out whether Tonyan is playing by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he’ll be a risk/reward TE1 at less than 100% in a plus matchup.

Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a "very mild calf strain" in Thursday's practice, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones didn't practice on Friday. "Jones wants to play Sunday against the Texans but sounds like it'll be a game-time decision," Pelissero adds. Packers-Texans kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll know whether Jones is playing by noon. He'll be virtually impossible to bench in this plus matchup if he's active. If not, Jamaal Williams would likely lead Green Bay's backfield, with rookie A.J. Dillon also taking on an expanded role.

Update: Jones is officially listed as questionable.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) missed practice again on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. Houston is now in question. Tonyan's absence would leave Jace Sternberger as Green Bay's lead pass-catching TE.

Packers TE Robert Tonyan (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He was able to return from this injury last week, but his status bears monitoring over the next few days.

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 WR Davante Adams (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. Lock him back into fantasy lineups.

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) was a full go in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to return for this weekend's game against the Bucs. Adams exploded for a 14-156-2 line in his only full outing this season. He's right back to high-end WR1 status.

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.

Packers WR Davante Adams (hamstring) is officially inactive for tonight's game against the Falcons. He should be back after Green Bay's Week 5 bye. Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor figure to operate as the Packers' #2 and #3 WRs tonight.

Packers WR Davante Adams announced via Twitter that he won't play against the Falcons on Monday night. Adams expressed frustration at the team staff holding him out even though he believes he's physically ready to play. His continued absence leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling as Green Bay's #1 WR, with Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor the next 2 up behind him. There should also be more targets available to TEs Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger. Perhaps even RBs Jamaal Williams and Tyler Ervin could get more involved, with Aaron Jones running more WR routes. Williams and Ervin should only be in consideration for DFS showdowns.
