Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucs after a limited week of practice. That one kicks off at 1 pm ET, so we'll know Jones' status by noon. If active, both Jones and Jamaal Williams will be risk/reward RB3 options. If Jones is out, Williams will be a borderline RB1 as Green Bay's feature back.

Panthers Devin Funchess (toe) put in a full practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. The toe shouldn't be an issue this weekend. The bigger concern for Funchess is the potential return of Saints CB Marshon Lattimore.

Bears S Adrian Amos missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss to the Eagles. We'll watch his participation throughout the week.

Updating a previous item, Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the Bucs. We'll see what he's able to do in the final 2 practices of the week.

Panthers WR Devin Funchess (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. He said he "stubbed" a toe early in last week's win over the Jets. Funchess finished that game and should be fine for this weekend's showdown with the Saints. We'll continue to keep an eye on him, though.

Packers S Morgan Burnett (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Steelers and ready to use in IDP lineups if you waited for him. OLB Clay Matthews (groin) is out, which hurts a defense you shouldn't be using anyway.

Packers RB Aaron Jones was charged with speeding, driving without a valid license and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his system on October 1, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Jones has pleaded not guilty but reportedly admitted to smoking marijuana that morning when he was pulled over. No pot was found in the car. Jones' next court hearing isn't until February, so this shouldn't impact his availability the rest of this season. He, of course, is expected to miss at least a couple more games with his knee injury. Jones could certainly be facing a suspension come 2018, though. He was also arrested for DWI while at UTEP back in 2016.

Redskins WR Ryan Grant (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He figures to serve as the #3 WR behind Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson. Grant would be a desperation fantasy play.

Redskins WR Ryan Grant (concussion) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in New Orleans. It looks like he still has a stage or 2 of the protocol to pass through. We’ll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) took some snaps from the training staff during Wednesday's practice, according to the Packer Report's Bill Huber. It was Rodgers' 1st time on the practice since field breaking his collarbone a month ago. HC Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Rodgers is making "really good progress and "moving right along." It sounds like he has a shot to return when 1st eligible in Week 15.

Packers RB Aaron Jones is expected to miss 3-6 weeks with his MCL injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The short end of that timetable would have him back for Week 14. The long end would knock him out through Week 16, the end of most fantasy seasons. Jones is droppable in shallower leagues. We're still waiting for an update on RB Ty Montgomery and his rib injury. If he misses time, Jamaal Williams will be left as Green Bay's lead back.

The Packers believe RB Aaron Jones is dealing with a sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’s likely to miss some time, but it could have been much worse," Rapoport adds. Jones is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow to determine the full extent of the damage. Hopefully we'll get a more concrete timetable then.

Redskins WR Ryan Grant sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Vikings. He hauled in all 3 of his targets for 25 yards before exiting. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week, but Grant hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this season.

Packers RB Aaron Jones suffered a knee injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game in Chicago and was carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we learn more. Jones' absence will turn Ty Montgomery back into an every-down back.

Update: Jones has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Doctors have told Packers QB Aaron Rodgers that he might be able to throw in 6 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That timeline -- which would have him throwing by around Week 13 -- would clearly give Rodgers a chance to return before the end of the regular season. Whether to keep him around on your fantasy roster will have to be a personal decision, however, and depends on the usefulness of who you'd replace him with and how much you need that roster spot. If you have any IR slot, Rodgers is a no-brainer stash there. If Rodgers is designated to return, he wouldn't be allowed to play before Week 15. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team isn't expecting him to return.

The Packers have placed QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) on IR. No surprise there. Making the move now allows Green Bay to re-activate Rodgers as early as Week 15. Of course, it's completely unclear whether he'll be ready by then or if the Packers will have a reason to bring him back. Rodgers is only worth stashing in the deepest of fantasy leagues and leagues with an IR spot.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that QB Aaron Rodgers will undergo surgery on his broken collarbone. "Potentially his season will be over," McCarthy added. Rodgers will head to IR soon, with the possibility of being re-activated starting in Week 15. It sounds like the chances are better than not, though, that he misses the final 10 games. QB Brett Hundley is set to take over as Green Bay's starter. With plenty of weapons and plus athleticism, he could make some fantasy noise.

The Packers announced that QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in Sunday's game against the Vikings. "There's a chance he could miss the rest of the season," the report added. Rodgers broke his collarbone back in 2013 and missed 7 weeks. That timeline would have him back for Week 14. We're sure to get more updates on the situation over the next 24 hours, but fantasy owners will obviously need to find a replacement for the stud QB.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Vikings after being slammed to the ground by LB Anthony Barr. He appeared to injure his right shoulder. Rodgers was carted back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB Brett Hundley is Green Bay's backup.

Update: Rodgers is officially questionable to return with a right shoulder injury, the team announced.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Packers RBs Aaron Jones and Ty Montgomery are "slated to split carries" in today's game against the Vikings. That's not surprising given Jones' breakthrough at Dallas last week and Montgomery playing through broken ribs. The situation obviously lowers the ceiling for both players in fantasy, but both are options for FF lineups.
