Updating an earlier item, Alex Green missed Wednesday's practice with a concussion.

However, coach Mike McCarthy is "encouraged" Green will be ready for Sunday's game against the Titans. The Packers would be down to an extremely shaky running back trio of DuJuan Harris, Ryan Grant and John Kuhn if Green couldn't go. McCarthy's words are obviously encouraging, but if you were planning on starting Green in your flex spot for the fantasy finals, you need to have a contingency plan ready.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cowboys are unlikely to trade up from the No. 34 pick.

Owner Jerry Jones considered trading up to No. 32, but with multiple players with first-round grades still on the board, it looks like the Cowboys will stand pat. Werder suggested the Cowboys could be targeting a pass rusher, which aligns with a similar report from NFL Network. Clemson's Kevin Dodd and Eastern Kentucky's Noah Spence are both candidates to go at 34, though Dodd might be the safer pick given Spence's history of off-field issues.

Dr. James Andrews told UCLA LB Myles Jack he will not need microfracture surgery.

Andrews first examined Jack's knee in December. Jack seemed uncertain about whether he'd need surgery when discussing it earlier this week, but Andrews doesn't see the injury as a long-term issue. Other teams may feel differently but Andrews is well-respected in sports medicine and his name carries weight. It would be a surprise if Jack isn't one of the first names announced on Day 2.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Rams "would also listen" to trade offers for Case Keenum, in addition to Nick Foles.

The Rams are going to move one of these quarterbacks after selecting Cal QB Jared Goff at No. 1 overall on Thursday night. They'd definitely prefer to keep Keenum as the veteran clipboard-holder, but he's also the one other teams would probably rather acquire. Foles was atrocious last season and has a bad contract. The Rams would likely take a late-rounder for either player.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys are "attempting" to acquire the No. 32 overall pick from the Browns.

According to RapSheet, the Cowboys' "likely target" is a pass rusher. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' top available edge rusher left on the board is Eastern Kentucky's Noah Spence. Spence has some off-field issues related to drugs, so maybe the Cowboys, who have already lost their two starting ends to suspensions, will shy away from him. Either way, they need help off the edge.

Coach Jeff Fisher said the "goal" is for No. 1 pick Jared Goff to be the Week 1 starting quarterback.

As expected. The Rams don't have the luxury to sit their first-round quarterback behind a quality veteran stopgap like the Eagles do with Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz. And that certainly played into the Rams' decision between Goff and Wentz. Wentz may have the higher long-term ceiling, but Goff is viewed by most as the more pro-ready prospect. Case Keenum will hold the clipboard, while the Rams attempt to unload Nick Foles either this draft weekend or this summer.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith will undergo a second surgery on his surgically-repaired foot this week to remove the screws from the first procedure.

This helps explain why GM Ozzie Newsome tried so hard to trade up to No. 4 for Jalen Ramsey. The Ravens "hope" Smith will only miss 4-6 weeks. If so, Smith should be ready for training camp. But it's obviously a concern after Smith didn't play well at all last season coming off of a Lisfranc fracture.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan does not "envision" trading franchise-tagged DE Muhammad Wilkerson.

Because any team trading for him would want assurances on a long-term contract, this is not the kind of deal teams can work out while on the clock. With little trade action to this point, it is unlikely the Jets find an acceptable offer before the second-round opens Friday night. The two sides have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal, but it feels more likely Wilkerson plays out 2016 under the tag.

Broncos GM John Elway confirmed the team will no longer pursue Colin Kaepernick after drafting Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick.

They'll also be out of the running for Sam Bradford. The Kaepernick trade had legs a few weeks back but talks had died down recently and now the Broncos have a potential franchise quarterback in Lynch. It remains to be seen if Kaepernick can patch things up with San Francisco after demanding a trade earlier this offseason. Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, some teams think the 49ers will simply cut him.

Broncos traded up with the Seahawks to select Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

The Broncos are shipping the Nos. 31 and 94 picks to Seattle for the right to move up five spots. Lynch's selection means neither Colin Kaepernick nor Ryan Fitzpatrick will be Denver bound. Lynch (6'7/244) started three years at Memphis, finishing his career with a 63.0 completion percentage, 7.36 YPA, 59:23 TD:INT ratio and 17 rushing scores. Lynch has huge hands (10 1/4") and high-level quarterback athleticism, running 4.86 with a 36-inch vertical. Big, mobile and over a year younger than Carson Wentz, Lynch's drawbacks consist of up-and-down ball placement resulting from technical flaws as a pocket passer, frustrating game-to-game consistency and questionable intelligence after managing an 18 on the Wonderlic. Lynch has drawn some comparisons to Blake Bortles. Although Mark Sanchez remains Denver's probable Week 1 starter, we'd expect Lynch to make starts as a rookie.

Vikings selected Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Treadwell (6'2/221) needed only three years at Ole Miss to set a school record for receptions (202), parlaying them into 2,393 yards (11.8 YPR) and 21 career TDs. He was a first-team All-SEC pick as a 2015 junior. Treadwell won't turn 21 until a month and a half after the draft and offers room for growth despite unimpressive workout metrics, running 4.64 with a 33 1/2-inch vertical. Rather than speed and athleticism, Treadwell wins with length, body control, ball skills, and physicality after the catch. An ultra-competitive player, Treadwell will be a playmaking possession receiver in the NFL.

Redskins selected TCU WR Josh Doctson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

It's means one of Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson will be released, likely Garcon. Doctson (6'2/202) needed only three seasons at TCU to set school records in career receiving yards (2,785) and receiving TDs (29), averaging 15.5 yards per catch. Doctson made NFL teams drool at the Combine, blazing 4.5-flat with explosive vertical (41") and broad (10'11") jumps. The lone drawback on Doctson's profile is his age, turning 24 late in his rookie year. Docston is an elite athlete with plus size, a consistent winner in the contested-catch game, and one of the top vertical wideouts in this year's draft. He's drawn comparisons ranging from DeAndre Hopkins to Allen Robinson.
