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.

Davante Adams hauled in both of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown Week 3 against the Lions.

It was the rare efficient day for Adams, although Aaron Rodgers did not give him many chances to make a mistake. Adams easily got open with a quick outside-in move off the line and lowered his shoulder for a 14-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Despite the score, Adams will be nothing more than a WR5 coming out of the Week 4 bye.
Sep 25 - 4:26 PM

Eddie Lacy rushed 17 times for 103 yards in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Lacy looked unstoppable all game, but unfortunately Aaron Rodgers hogged all of the touchdowns. Lacy was curiously not in the game on a first-and-goal from the two in the second quarter, but he was the focal point of the offense with the Packers' nursing a big lead in the second half. He rumbled for 61 yards on 11 carries after the break, busting through tackle attempts and always tacking on extra yards after contact. The numbers have not been spectacular, but Lacy has looked great through three weeks. He will have a tough matchup against the Giants after the Week 4 bye, but he will be a must-start in that game.
Sep 25 - 4:21 PM

Randall Cobb caught 1-of-3 targets for 33 yards Week 3 against the Lions.

While Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson got on track, Cobb did not get his invitation to the party. He started on the right foot with a 33-yard grab on a broken play on the opening drive, but he only saw two targets the rest of the way. Cobb will certainly have bigger days moving forward, but he has not had more than 60 yards through the air since Week 13 of last year. He will be no better than a WR3 coming out of the Week 4 bye.
Sep 25 - 4:08 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-7 targets for 101 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Nelson’s production had been better than his play the first two weeks, but that was not the case against the Lions. He easily got open on a mismatch with a linebacker for a 49-yards before capping the Packers’ second drive with an eight-yard score. He was also pivotal on a successful two-minute drill late in the first half, catching four passes including a 17-yard touchdown in which he easily beat Darius Slay down the right sideline. Nelson did not see a target in the second half as the Packers leaned on the running game to close it out, but he is rounding into form. Even in a tough matchup against the Giants, Nelson will be a WR1 following the Week 4 bye.
Sep 25 - 4:06 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 15-of-24 passes for 205 yards and four touchdowns in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Rodgers did almost all of his damage in the first half, completing just three passes after the break. He was able to take the second half off because of the massive 31-10 halftime lead built on the back of his four touchdown strikes. The offense looked to be in vintage form early, with Rodgers primarily getting the ball out quickly and on schedule but still showing the ability to make plays out of the pocket, as he did on a long gain to Randall Cobb on the first drive and an eight-yard touchdown to Jordy Nelson on the second possession. Six of the Packers' first seven possessions ended in scores, and the seventh was stopped by halftime. Even against a defense struggling with injuries, it was an impressive performance by the entire offense. Rodgers will be a must-start against the Giants following the Packers' Week 4 bye.
Sep 25 - 3:59 PM

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

Packers declared OLB Clay Matthews, CB Sam Shields, S Morgan Burnett, DE Datone Jones, NT Letroy Guion, QB Joe Callahan, and OT Kyle Murphy inactive for Week 3 against the Lions.

The Packers will be without four starters and an important rotational pass rusher on defense against the Lions. With Detroit also missing DE Ziggy Ansah and WLB DeAndre Levy, this game has shootout potential.
Sep 25 - 11:33 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) is expected to be cleared in "a few more weeks."

This is at least Shields' fifth concussion since entering the league, and there were some reports he was considering retiring. Schefter reports Shields received a "good report" from a concussion specialist this week, however, and will eventually return. The Packers are on bye next week, so Shields could be targeting Week 5.

Packers officially ruled out OLB Clay Matthews and S Morgan Burnett for Week 3 against the Lions.

Both Letroy Guion (knee) and Datone Jones (knee) were downgraded to doubtful after being listed as questionable on the initial injury report. With Sam Shields (concussion) also out, the Packers will be without four starters and one important rotational player on defense against the Lions.
Sep 24 - 1:56 PM

Packers RBs coach Ben Sirmans confirmed Eddie Lacy needs more touches.

"If you combined his stats, you’d say he’s been relatively productive," Sirmans said. "Each game he’s had an explosive run. In terms of where he is physically, it’s just a matter of time for him to really start rolling." The Packers plan to establish more of a running game after giving Lacy just 26 carries through the first two weeks. Lacy is our No. 14 running back for Week 3.

Packers OLB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) is questionable for Week 3 against the Lions.

Matthews hasn't practiced yet this week but is hoping to work out Saturday ahead of Sunday's divisional tilt with Detroit, He's looking like a game-time decision. Morgan Burnett (groin), Letroy Guion (knee), Datone Jones (knee) and T.J. Lang (hip) are also questionable for Week 3.
Sep 23 - 4:28 PM

Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) is out for Week 3 against the Lions.

Shields is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion against the Jaguars in Week 1. He's been seeing a specialist. Ladarius Gunter has been filling in at right corner. As Green Bay has a Week 4 bye, the Packers figure to target Week 5 for the returns of Shields, OLB Clay Matthews, and SS Morgan Burnett.
Sep 23 - 4:21 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy and the rest of the Packers' coaching staff said they want to get Eddie Lacy more carries moving forward.

"The analysis of our offense after two games, the running backs have not been given enough opportunities," McCarthy said. "That's something I need to focus on." Lacy has performed well when given his chances, but he has just 26 carries through two games, turning them into 111 yards. "I wish he was averaging 24 handoffs a game," said RBs coach Ben Sirmans. "We’ll see when that happens." It could happen if the Packers stop giving James Starks (0.9 YPC) so many snaps.

Packers CB Sam Shields is still in the concussion protocol.

Dealing with at least his fifth concussion since entering the league, Shields has reportedly gone to see a specialist. He is not going to play this week, and he could be sidelined for an extended period.
