Aaron Jones rushed two times for 10 yards and caught three passes for 11 yards and a score in the Packers' second preseason game.

Jones looked good on his two runs and found the end zone from five yards out in the passing game, but he played clearly behind fellow rookie Jamaal Williams. Even if something happens to Ty Montgomery, Jones will struggle to find fantasy value.

Martellus Bennett caught a three-yard touchdown in the Packers' second preseason game.

Like the rest of the first-team offense, Bennett played limited snaps, but he made his final one count by going up over a defender to pull down a fade from three yards out. Bennett scored on four of his five targets inside the 10 last season with the Patriots, and he could see even more work near the goal line in Green Bay. That touchdown upside makes him a TE1.

Jamaal Williams rushed five times for 15 yards in the Packers' second preseason game.

It was not a flashy performance, but Williams got the start with Ty Montgomery (leg) sidelined and worked exclusively with the Aaron Rodgers group. At worst second on the depth chart, Williams should get work even if Montgomery is healthy, and that is far from a given. He is a great pick in the ninth round.

Aaron Rodgers completed 6-of-8 passes for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' second preseason game.

Rodgers also picked up a third down with a 13-yard run, and he drew a 12-man penalty on a different third down by quick snapping. He capped his only drive of the night by hitting Martellus Bennett on a fade route from three yards out, something fans should probably get used to seeing. In short, Rodgers is still good at football, and he is the best fantasy option at the position.

Packers seventh-round RB Devante Mays has received second-team reps with Ty Montgomery (leg) sidelined.

Mays was running behind fourth-rounder Jamaal Williams but ahead of fifth-rounder Aaron Jones. "He not only will make you miss, but he runs with power," coach Mike McCarthy said. "Very natural with the run instincts." Mays didn't receive a carry in Green Bay's preseason opener, but should get work against the Redskins on Saturday. He's a name to file away in Dynasty leagues.

Ty Montgomery (leg) is expected to miss the Packers' second preseason game.

Montgomery is "working through" a lower leg injury that's sidelined him the last two days. The missed time creates some depth-chart leaping for fourth-rounder Jamaal Williams, who's getting most of Montgomery's practice reps. Williams is expected to start Saturday at Washington.

Packers CB Damarious Randall has been placed in the concussion protocol.

Randall may be dealing with a serious concussion after getting carted off in the preseason opener. It's a setback to the Packers' secondary, but Randall has a month to get cleared for Week 1. Randall's injury could create snaps for struggling rookie Kevin King.

Packers seventh-round WR Malachi Dupre suffered a concussion in the preseason opener.

In a scary scene, Dupre had to be stretchered off after taking a big hit in the fourth quarter. He was moving his arms, however, and gave a thumbs up on his way off the field. He was taken to the hospital for further evaluation.

Aaron Jones did not gain any yards on his three touches in the Packers' preseason opener.

Jones did see some snaps in the first half, but all of his touches came after the break. The fifth-rounder is clearly behind Jamaal Williams for the No. 2 job at this point.
Aug 10 - 10:30 PM

Jamaal Williams rushed four times for 14 yards in the Packers' preseason opener.

As expected, the rookie worked with the second-team offense, taking over after Ty Montgomery left the game. He contributed a couple nice runs on the Packers' touchdown drive in the second quarter and looked good in his first NFL action. Williams looks locked into the No. 2 job at this point, and he could push Montgomery for first-team work.
Aug 10 - 9:44 PM

Davante Adams caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Packers' preseason opener.

Adams did drop one, but he made up for it by adjusting on a poorly thrown ball after putting a nasty move on the corner to get open. Adams may not go for 12 touchdowns again, but his third-year breakout was not a fluke. He is a good pick in the fourth round.
Aug 10 - 9:38 PM

Packers OG Don Barclay exited the preseason opener with an ankle injury.

Barclay could not put any weight on the leg as he was helped off the field, and he had to ride the cart into the locker room. We should know more soon, but it looks like he could be dealing with a serious injury.
Aug 10 - 9:27 PM

Ty Montgomery rushed three times for zero yards and caught one pass for eight yards in the Packers' preseason opener.

Montgomery worked as the clear starter, but he did not have much success and put the ball on the turf to end the second drive. The good news is the coaching staff showed faith by putting him right back on the field on the next series. Fourth-round rookie Jamaal Williams showed well with the twos, but Montgomery still looks like the clear starter at this point.
Aug 10 - 8:59 PM

Packers CB Damarious Randall exited the preseason opener with a concussion.

Randall was slow to get up after a first-quarter collision before walking off the field sluggishly. He ended up riding the cart into the locker room. With rookie Kevin King struggling, Randall would seem to have a good shot at a starting job, but this is a setback.
Aug 10 - 8:36 PM

According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Tom Silverstein, Packers second-round CB Kevin King has "struggled mightily" at training camp.

Per Silverstein, King has been getting beaten badly by pretty much any receiver that lines up opposite him, especially in one-on-one drills. After drafting King with the first pick of the second round, Green Bay said it envisioned King as a Week 1 starter. But that's unlikely to happen. Davon House and Quinten Rollins figure to get the nods there, with Damarious Randall and Ladarius Gunter behind them.
