ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky called DT Mike Daniels (hip) the team's "biggest concern" among injured players.

The Packers listed a whopping 13 players on their Wednesday injury report, including LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring), who didn't even play last week, but apparently is in better health than Daniels. One of the NFL's most dominant defensive linemen, Daniels' loss would be an upgrade to the Bengals' offensive outlook.

Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Packers to lighten Ty Montgomery's workload going forward.

The Packers were careful to monitor Julius Peppers' reps when he was with the team last year and Cohen believes the coaching staff is "surely having similar conversations" about Montgomery's usage. Montgomery has played more snaps than any running back in the league so far, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by coach Mike McCarthy. "By no means have we come out and established the rhythm and moved in and out of different personnel groups that we may have liked to in Weeks 1 and 2," he said. "So, I’m definitely aware of it and that’s what game plans are for." Even if the Packers do scale back Montgomery's workload some, he should remain a borderline RB1 in most formats.

Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Nelson's status was looking questionable after sitting out the entire second half last week, but he's on track to play after practicing in full. He should be active barring a setback, though expectations should be downgraded at less than 100 percent. The Packers are trending up with Nelson and RT Bryan Bulaga looking likely to return. Randall Cobb (chest) didn't practice Wednesday and is more up in the air for Week 3.

Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Wright played his usual snaps in last week's loss to Tampa Bay and should be a go for Week 3 against the Steelers. He leads the Bears with 102 receiving yards in the early going.
Sep 20 - 7:52 PM

Jordan Howard (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's actually a good sign after Howard was spotted with his arm in a sling following Sunday's loss to the Bucs. It puts Howard on track to suit up this weekend, though his workload and effectiveness will be up in the air against the Steelers' stout defense. Even in standard leagues, Tarik Cohen is the fantasy play for Week 3.

Paul Richardson (finger) is practicing Wednesday.

Richardson played through a dislocated finger Sunday, but his Week 3 status isn't in doubt. He should play his normal snaps against the Titans.

Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Cook looked healthy in Week 2, snaring four-of-six targets for 25 yards in a blowout win over the Jets. This could simply be a case of the Raiders managing his practice reps. Regardless, he should be ready to roll for Sunday Night Football against the Redskins.
Sep 20 - 7:20 PM

Amari Cooper (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

This is the same routine Cooper has been following all year. He'll be fine for Week 3 at Washington, though he has a tough matchup against shutdown corner Josh Norman.
