Packers C Corey Linsley tore his hamstring twice this offseason, once in April and a second time in July, and is expected to open the season on reserve/PUP.

Linsley suffered the first tear while working out on his own after the Packers' first set of OTAs. He thought the injury had healed and began working out again in July, only to tear it again. Linsley is currently on active/PUP, but figures to open the year there and miss the first six weeks of the season. The 2014 fifth-rounder has started 33 games through two seasons and received really strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run and pass blocking. J.C. Tretter will take over.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Pete Dougherty reports Packers fifth-round WR Trevor Davis had an "uneventful" training camp.

Once the pads came on, Davis' play slipped. He has blazing speed (4.42 forty) at 6'1/188, but Davis seems destined for either the practice squad or the weekly gameday inactive list as the No. 6 receiver. Davis is a developmental prospect whose ceiling may be a deep threat and special teams ace.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky predicts third-year WR Jared Abbrederis will be Green Bay's "breakout" player this season.

Abbrederis is listed as Randall Cobb's direct backup on the Packers' latest unofficial depth chart, suggesting he's no deeper than the No. 4 receiver. According to Demovsky, Abbrederis has enjoyed a "strong showing" at training camp and "continues to move up the depth chart." With Jeff Janis' abysmal camp and broken hand, Abbrederis is competing with Davante Adams for No. 3 duties. Abbrederis is a smooth route runner who can play both inside and outside.

Packers DL Letroy Guion is expected to shift back to nose tackle this season.

Guion manned the nose for the Packers in 2014 when B.J. Raji missed the entire season due to injury. With Raji back last year, Guion kicked back to 3-4 end but was unable to find as much success. Raji retired this past offseason, leaving nose duties to Guion. He set career-highs in tackles and sacks in 2014.

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 coach Mike McCarthy suggested Aaron Rodgers will play this week against the 49ers.

"The goal is to play Aaron and play our guys," McCarthy said. "But we'll evaluate our guys after today's practice." Considering he controls who plays, Rodgers suiting up is a very achievable goal. Rodgers has yet to see any snaps this preseason.

Jordy Nelson (knee) said conditioning is his biggest concern after sitting out all of last season.

Chemistry would seem to be the biggest concern after Nelson missed last year and likely all of the preseason, but the Packers do not seem to be worried. "He’s such an experienced person that literally like one rep in, he’s going to be back on his feet again," WRs coach Luke Getsy said. "I don’t think we have any issues or thoughts or worries about re-acclimating Jordy into this game." Nelson certainly carries risk as a 31-year-old coming off a serious injury, but he has the upside to finish as the top overall receiver. He is a fine pick in the second round.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said J.C. Tretter will open the season as the team's starting center.

Tretter's quest was helped by a hamstring injury which has kept Corey Linsley on the sidelines since mid-May, but McCarthy made it clear Tretter earned the job on the field. "Tretter has had an excellent camp," McCarthy said. "J.C., in my view, has earned the starting position at center." Tretter made three starts last season.

Packers backup QB Brett Hundley (ankle) isn't expected to practice next week.

He'll also miss the Packers' regular season dress rehearsal, where Hundley likely would have played most of the second half. Hundley was scheduled to log heavy preseason snaps this year. Instead, he's barely played and barely practiced in camp. Hundley remains a promising deep Dynasty league prospect.

Jordy Nelson will participate in individual drills on Monday.

Activated off PUP last week, Monday will be Nelson's first full workout of training camp. He probably won't see much action in team drills, but this is a critical step as Nelson comes off last year's ACL tear and knee tendinitis to begin training camp. Nelson participated in pre-game warmups ahead of Thursday night's preseason game. He should be near or at 100 percent by Week 1.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said WR Davante Adams is "having a very good camp."

Adams finished Thursday night's preseason game with two catches for 37 yards including a nifty 31-yard back-shoulder grab from Brett Hundley. "He’s healthy and he’s taken a step," said McCarthy. Reports on Adams have been all over the map. Despite the mixed reviews, Adams figures to open 2016 as the No. 3 wideout behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

Packers backup QB Brett Hundley aggravated his ankle injury in Thursday night's preseason game.

The injury cost Hundley two weeks of camp and Green Bay's preseason opener. After Thursday night's aggravation, coach Mike McCarthy insisted Hundley's "new" ankle injury isn't as bad as the first one. The Packers had been planning for Hundley to play a ton this August. With the regular season dress rehearsal next up, we may not see Hundley again until the preseason finale.

Eddie Lacy rushed nine times for 45 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason game.

Lacy was moving tonight, taking the rock and bursting through the hole in no-nonsense fashion. He looked focused and fit, and is now up to 13 carries for 69 yards (5.3 YPC) through two exhibition tilts. The only thing preventing Lacy from being an elite RB1 is himself.
Aug 18 - 9:12 PM

Packers QB Brett Hundley is starting Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Aaron Rodgers is a healthy scratch. Hundley missed last week's opener with an ankle issue. Hundley is expected to see extended reps, as Rodgers should play a big chunk of next week's regular season dress rehearsal. Hundley is worth firing up if you're taking a shot at preseason DFS.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, third-year WR Davante Adams "has had some good moments and some bad ones in camp."

This would've been our guess based on beat writers' Twitter feeds; Adams seems to mix bad days with good days and follow up impressive plays with mistakes. "For every great play he's made, it seems he's had a drop," wrote the Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein. Silverstein says Adams "has to make a statement" in the Packers' second preseason game. He'll be doing so with Brett Hundley.
