Packers DT Mike Daniels (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

It's a significant loss because Daniels is a game wrecker in the middle, and the Bengals' overmatched offensive line needs all the help it can get. Cincinnati's offense has some bounce-back potential in Sunday's trip to Lambeau Field.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 3 against the Bengals.

Barring a miraculous recovery in the next 48 hours, Bakhtiari will be absent for the second week in a row. 2016 sixth-rounder Kyle Murphy will fill in at left tackle.
Sep 22 - 3:42 PM

Jordy Nelson (quad) is officially listed as questionable for Week 3.

Despite the Q tag, Nelson is fully expected to play against the Bengals after missing almost all of Week 2 with what he deemed a "charley horse." With to-date Packers target leader Randall Cobb (shoulder) listed as doubtful, Nelson should be locked and loaded into fantasy lineups as a WR1.

Randall Cobb (chest) is listed as doubtful for Week 3 against the Bengals.

This should move Jordy Nelson into the slot with Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams as the Packers' outside receivers versus Cincinnati. Nelson missed essentially all of the last game, but he practiced all week and called his Week 2 knee/quad injury a "charley horse." We're listing Cobb as "week to week."
Sep 22 - 3:37 PM

Randall Cobb (chest, questionable) will be a game-time decision Week 3 against the Bengals.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Cobb and DL Mike Daniels will both get the "entire week" to get ready for Sunday. Both will go through pre-game warmup routines and a decision will be made after. With a late-afternoon kickoff, Cobb owners need to have secondary plans in place if Cobb is ruled inactive.

Coach Mike McCarthy said he expects Jordy Nelson (quad) to be able to play Week 3 against the Bengals.

Nelson has been practicing in full this week after tweaking his quad in the first quarter of last Sunday night's loss to the Falcons and missing the rest of the game. Randall Cobb (chest) is going to be a game-time decision.

Randall Cobb (chest) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Cobb was supposed to be out of the woods after an MRI on his shoulder came back negative, but instead he's looking on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Cobb will need to get in at least a limited session on Friday to have a realistic shot at suiting up. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Pack play at 4:25 ET. Hopefully Cobb's status is resolved by the morning.

Packers placed OT Jason Spriggs on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

The 2016 second-rounder is the Packers' swing tackle. It's a big blow, as the Pack have already dealt with injury to both starters. Spriggs should be a candidate for return.
Sep 21 - 1:19 PM

Packers OLB Nick Perry will undergo surgery on his injured hand.

The injury is only expected to sideline him a couple weeks, but it is another injury blow for a Packers defense which also could be without Mike Daniels (hip) this week. Ahmad Brooks should see more snaps with Perry out.
Sep 21 - 11:46 AM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky called DT Mike Daniels (hip) the team's "biggest concern" among injured players.

The Packers listed a whopping 13 players on their Wednesday injury report, including LT David Bakhtiari (hamstring), who didn't even play last week, but apparently is in better health than Daniels. One of the NFL's most dominant defensive linemen, Daniels' loss would be an upgrade to the Bengals' offensive outlook.

Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Packers to lighten Ty Montgomery's workload going forward.

The Packers were careful to monitor Julius Peppers' reps when he was with the team last year and Cohen believes the coaching staff is "surely having similar conversations" about Montgomery's usage. Montgomery has played more snaps than any running back in the league so far, a fact that has not gone unnoticed by coach Mike McCarthy. "By no means have we come out and established the rhythm and moved in and out of different personnel groups that we may have liked to in Weeks 1 and 2," he said. "So, I’m definitely aware of it and that’s what game plans are for." Even if the Packers do scale back Montgomery's workload some, he should remain a borderline RB1 in most formats.
Sep 20 - 8:14 PM

Jordy Nelson (quad) expects to play in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Nelson's status was looking questionable after sitting out the entire second half last week, but he's on track to play after practicing in full. He should be active barring a setback, though expectations should be downgraded at less than 100 percent. The Packers are trending up with Nelson and RT Bryan Bulaga looking likely to return. Randall Cobb (chest) didn't practice Wednesday and is more up in the air for Week 3.

Packers re-signed DL Ricky Jean-Francois.

The Packers gave up on Jean-Francois after Week 1, but he's back with Mike Daniels sidelined. Jean-Francois will be part of a rotation with Montravius Adams and Quinton Dial opposite Kenny Clark. He isn't guaranteed a spot once Daniels returns.
Sep 20 - 5:43 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Bulaga was held out last week after coming down with flu-like symptoms. The return to practice puts him on track to make his season debut Sunday. Packers LT David Bakhtiari remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Jordy Nelson (quad) is practicing in full for Week 3 against the Bengals.

It's a great sign after Nelson missed most of Sunday night's game. He's ahead of Randall Cobb (shoulder), who was held out of practice. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Nelson only has a 50-percent chance to play this week, but he's trending in the right direction.
