NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jared Cook suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 3 against the Lions.
Cook was seen on crutches and in a boot after the game, but ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported the injury was not season-ending. A high-ankle sprain fits on both accounts. Cook will try to heal up during the Week 4 bye, but he will almost certainly miss games. Richard Rodgers will handle the bulk of the work with Cook sidelined. Sep 27 - 8:29 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky reports Jared Cook's ankle injury is not season-ending.

Cooks was spotted on crutches and in a boot after being carted to the locker room Week 3 against the Lions. The concern is the injury is to the same foot which required surgery in June. Demovsky reports the Packers are still trying to determine if he is looking at a multi-week absence. The Packers are on bye this week before hosting the Giants in Week 5.

Jared Cook was spotted with his right foot in a walking boot and using crutches after the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Cook left the game in the second quarter and never returned. The Packers called the injury an ankle issue, but Cook had surgery on his right foot in June. Richard Rodgers would be in line for a bigger role if Cook is forced to miss time.

Jared Cook suffered a right ankle injury Week 3 against the Lions.

He suffered the injury on a drop near the end zone in the second quarter, which is about as Jared Cook as a play can be. The Packers are calling the issue an ankle injury, but Cook had surgery on his right foot in June. He was ruled out after halftime. Cook had 1 catch for 15 yards before exiting.
Sep 25 - 1:58 PM

Jared Cook secured 4-of-6 targets for 31 yards in Week 2.

It's an increase from last week, but Cook still had a minor role. He played just 10 more snaps than Richard Rodgers, who finished with two catches. Cook isn't a streaming option for Week 3.
Sep 19 - 1:07 AM

Jared Cook said he is not worried about his lack of targets Week 1.

Cook said he had a few more plays called for him, but they were scrapped because of the Jaguars' coverage. Even though he was only targeted twice, Cook says it was "fun" playing in the offense. "It’s hard for the defense to be right," Cook said. "It’s a fun offense to be a part of because any given day, or any given Sunday, anybody is going to get off." Cook should have bigger days, but he needs to prove a consistent part of the offense before getting fantasy consideration.
Sep 17 - 12:01 PM

Jared Cook said he expects more targets going forward.

Cook had just two targets in the opener. He outsnapped Richard Rodgers, but wasn't higher than the No. 4 option. Cook should remain a non-factor with a matchup against Vikings S Harrison Smith in Week 2.
Sep 16 - 7:02 PM

Jared Cook caught 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in Green Bay's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

Cook comprehensively failed to make his presence felt, which of course isn't anything new. Cook will probably have the occasional blowup — he's supposedly a big-play threat — but it's wishful thinking to expect meaningful improvement on his Rams days, especially with Richard Rodgers battling for targets.
Sep 11 - 6:07 PM

Jared Cook caught 4-of-5 targets for 54 yards in the Packers' third preseason game Friday night.

Cook was a terrifying weapon for the 49ers' defense, shredding them down the seam between the twenties. Most importantly, Cook dominated first-team snaps, seeing 19-of-26 reps compared to just 12 for Richard Rodgers with the Aaron Rodgers group. Cook has always possessed a tantalizing size-speed combination, and has long been an inconsistent producer with technical flaws. He's late-round flyer material in hopes the light flipping on with Rodgers is real.

According to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official website, Jared Cook has "developed a rapport" with Aaron Rodgers the past two weeks.

Cook was activated from the PUP list two weeks ago from today, and in his first practice with the team, he and Rodgers hooked up for numerous touchdowns in team drills. Hodkiewicz also reports Cook has "caught everything" in practice. Cook has a good chance to set or come close to career-best marks in Green Bay, especially with touchdowns. His current career-high is five.

Packers activated TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) from the active/PUP list.

WR Ty Montgomery has also been activated. Neither player will suit up for this week's preseason opener, but they have a shot at game No. 2. Locked into a timeshare with Richard Rodgers, Cook could pop some big plays this season, but will have trouble producing TE2 value.
Aug 9 - 5:59 PM

Packers TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) could be out until the second week of the preseason.

Currently on active/PUP, Cook appears likely to miss the first two weeks of training camp and the Hall of Fame Game against the Colts. The missed time will lower Cook's chances of opening the season starting over Richard Rodgers.
Jul 27 - 12:47 AM

Packers placed TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) on the active/PUP list.

Cook recently told a newspaper he was 100 percent recovered from an early-June operation on his foot, but that never seemed likely, and he will not practice at the start of Packers camp. Cook can still be activated at any time. He needs to get on the field to beat out Richard Rodgers for tight end snaps.
Jul 25 - 5:53 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects Richard Rodgers to remain the Packers' No. 1 tight end following the addition of Jared Cook.

Reporter Bob McGinn expects Cook to be counted on for some "splash plays," but for Rodgers to remain atop the depth chart. "Splash plays" is certainly something the doughy Rodgers doesn't provide. Even with Rodgers in the fold, Cook could match his 2015 reception total of 39 in a considerably more pass-friendly offense.
Jul 21 - 6:38 PM

Jared Cook (foot surgery) says he’s fully healthy.

Cook was sidelined for OTAs, but expects to be cleared for training camp. He’s the early favorite to start despite the missed time. Cook can’t afford any setbacks.
