Geronimo Allison (hamstring) said he sat out Wednesday's practice "for precautionary reasons."
However, Allison did not commit to returning to practice on Thursday, and there is at least mild concern about his Week 20 availability. The Packers are dealing with injuries to three of their top-four receivers, also including Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle). We'll have updates on Thursday.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes Davante Adams' ankle injury as similar to the injury he tried playing through last year.
A high ankle sprain was at least partially to blame for Adams' disappointing sophomore campaign, from which he rebounded to rank second in the NFL in touchdown catches (12) this season behind only teammate Jordy Nelson (14). Per the Journal-Sentinel, Adams "is going to have to prove he can be an effective player in order to be cleared" for the NFC Championship Game. The Packers have ruled out Adams from this week's practices. He needs to practice on Saturday and look competent doing it in order to get the Week 20 green light.
Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) admitted he worked "slowly" back into Wednesday's practice.
Officially, he was listed as "limited." Either way, it was a step in the right direction. "I just caught some balls, tried to slowly work back in to it and feel things out," Nelson described. Nelson admitted he is entering unknown territory in his "hopeful" quest to play against the Falcons. "I've never played receiver with broken ribs," said Jordy. "We'll find out, hopefully. ... It's one of those things that you'll figure out when you get there. If it happens, we'll see how it goes."
Brandon Marshall said he's not open to taking a pay cut.
It conflicts with comments Marshall made earlier this month. Marshall is due $7.5 million coming off one of his worst seasons. With none of his salary guaranteed, the Jets will either keep Marshall or move on from him.
Jordy Nelson (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
It's a step in the right direction after Nelson worked with the rehab group all last week. Nelson is still looking on the doubtful side for the NFC Championship. Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison are also up in the air.
Jaguars hired Nathaniel Hackett as offensive coordinator.
Hackett's job was in question after the Jaguars brought in Chip Kelly for an interview. Jacksonville showed little improvement with Hackett, but he'll remain their coordinator after finishing out the final nine games. The Jaguars should be more of a run-balanced team under Hackett in 2017.
Geronimo Allison (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.
Davante Adams (ankle) was also held out. The Packers have injuries to three of their top four receivers going into the NFC Championship. Allison's status will be updated Thursday.
Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.
Cox was cut from Tennessee in November. He'll try to rehab his value in Seattle after briefly playing for them in 2013. The Seahawks need corner depth with Deshawn Shead recovering from a torn ACL.
