Position Listing
Davante Adams
Adams recorded 13 catches on 16 targets for 196 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the Texans.

Adams dominated the Texans from start to finish, beginning his performance with a three-yard touchdown in the first quarter. His second trip to the end zone came on a 45-yard reception late in the third quarter when he broke free behind the Texans' secondary. Aside from the scores, Adams recorded receptions of 36, 28, 16 and 15 yards. It was a dominant performance for Adams, and he's now topped 150 receiving yards in two of his four games on the season. He'll face another soft secondary in a Week 8 matchup against Minnesota.

KeiVarae Russell
Russell signed with the Giants on Saturday.

Russell hasn't played since 2018 when he averaged nearly 20 defensive snaps per game with the Bengals, and he'll add temporary depth at cornerback for the Giants since Darnay Holmes (lower body) is sidelined. If he gets healthy, though, Russell will vie for a special-teams role.

Marcedes Lewis
Lewis (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rob Demovsky of reports.

The veteran tight end never put in a full practice session this week due to the knee issue, but it won't impact his availability for Sunday's contest. Lewis has two receptions for 22 yards and is mostly serving as a blocking tight end this season.

Knee - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Preston Smith
Smith (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Smith suffered the injury during last week's loss to the Buccaneers, but will suit up after practicing on a limited basis throughout the week. With the veteran ready to play, he's expected to handle his usual starting role at linebacker.

Shoulder - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Rashan Gary
Gary (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Gary was forced to miss the last Packer game before the bye week in Week 4, so he appears fully healthy to return to action. Look for the second-year pro to return to his usual rotational role at linebacker for Sunday's contest.

Ankle - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Yosh Nijman
Nijman (elbow) practiced for the first time during training camp Friday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Nijman's 2019 season was cut short by an elbow injury that landed him on injured reserve. The 24-year-old has a lot of ground to make up now to secure a reserve role on the Packers' offensive front.

John Lovett
Lovett was promoted to the Packers' active roster Saturday, Jim Owczarski of the Journal Sentinel reports.

Lovett is a fullback/tight end hybrid who could provide some valuable blocking but is unlikely to touch the ball much against the Saints in Week 3.

Knee - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Kenny Clark
Clark (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Clark suffered this groin injury in the season opener and missed three games as a result, but he's back to full speed with a Week 6 matchup against the Buccaneers on tap. The UCLA product will be an immediate improvement for the Packers' suspect run defense, and he'll look to build on last year's performance of 62 tackles and six sacks through 16 games.

Billy Turner
Turner (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Turner missed last week's season opener because of his injury, but he is ready to take the field in Week 2. Turner started all 16 games he played in for the Packers last year, but it remains to be seen if he will start on the right side Sunday or simply serve as depth.

Lane Taylor
Taylor (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Taylor had his season ended Week 1 after being carted off the field. Lucas Patrick has filled in admirably for Taylor at right guard and should continue to hold down the starting spot going forward.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Ben Braden
Braden was waived by the Packers on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 26-year-old was promoted from the practice squad Saturday and didn't see the field during Sunday's win over the Texans. Braden could rejoin the team's practice squad if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Hunter Bradley
The Packers activated Bradley from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bradley spent just over two weeks on the reserve list, but he'll now be eligible to rejoin teammates at practice. He's on track to serve as the Packers' starting long snapper for 2020.

Groin - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Delontae Scott
No Updates
Za'Darius Smith
Smith (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

This is Smith's fourth straight week on the injury report, and while he hasn't missed a game, his snap count has declined over the last two weeks. However, as long as he doesn't suffer a setback, Smith should be available for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Smith is enjoying another explosive campaign with six sacks through six games, tied for third in the league.

De'Jon Harris
No Updates
Christian Kirksey
Kirksey (pectoral) has been cleared for practice, opening up a 21-day window for him to be taken off IR, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

While Kirksey's eligible to return to game action as soon as Sunday against the Vikings, Silverstein cautions that the Packers like to use practice as part of the rehab process and rarely activate players in the same week that they resume practicing. With that information in mind, it's more likely that Kirksey's next game action won't come until Week 9 in San Francisco. The linebacker had racked up 12 tackles in Weeks 1 and 2 before getting injured in early in Week 3 against the Saints, so his return should deliver a major boost to a Packers defense that has struggled to stop the run.

Pectoral - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Stanford Samuels III
No Updates
Marquez Valdes-Scantling
Valdes-Scantling did not catch a pass in Sunday's victory over the Texans but did have one carry for nine yards.

Valdes-Scantling played by far the second-most snaps among Packers wideouts and was targeted four times, but he ultimately only ended up with the lone touch on the ground. Valdes-Scantling should continue seeing the field plenty until Allen Lazard (abdomen) returns, and his next matchup will come against a Vikings team he recorded 96 yards and a score against in Week 1. However, with just 91 yards from scrimmage over his last four games it's tough to trust Valdes-Scantling in fantasy lineups right now.

Raven Greene
Greene was removed from Sunday's game against the Texans with an oblique injury.

Greene tied for the team lead with eight tackles (five solo) and also had two pass breakups before exiting the contest. The 25-year-old's status should be updated when the Packers return to practice Wednesday.

Oblique - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Josh Jackson
Jackson recorded two solo tackles in Monday's 30-16 win over the Falcons.

Chandon Sullivan (concussion) exited after just three snaps, and Kevin King (quadriceps) left early as well, so Jackson took over at outside cornerback and logged 28 of 70 defensive snaps (40 percent). The 2018 second-round pick has struggled to get his footing in the NFL, and he could drop back to a reserve role following the Week 5 bye if King and Sullivan are cleared to play.

Jordan Love
Love (coach's decision) is inactive for the Packers' Week 4 matchup against Atlanta.

Love battled an illness in the middle of the week, but he was able to practice fully Saturday and enter Monday without an injury designation. Nevertheless, he'll remain inactive, which was also his status for the first three games this season. Tim Boyle will serve as the backup quarterback.

Equanimeous St. Brown
St. Brown (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday.

St. Brown spent the first four games of the season on IR, but even after his return Week 6, he's actually played more snaps on special teams (15) than on offense (14) over the last two contests. His lingering knee injury continues to inhibit his ability to practice and clearly be a part of the offense, and until he elevates to full participation, it may be difficult for the third-year pro to be a regular in the Packers' receiving corps.

Knee - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Oren Burks
Burks (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Burks was limited by his lingering groin injury as recently as Wednesday, but he's now returned to full health. The 2018 third-round pick looks set to handle a starting role at inside linebacker against the Vikings on Sunday.

Jon Runyan
No Updates
Jake Hanson
Hanson (undisclosed) was placed on practice squad injury list Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Hanson has been on the practice squad since failing to make Green Bay's active roster, but he's now dealing with the undisclosed injury. It's unclear how long the 23-year-old is expected to be sidelined.

Undisclosed - Out for Week 9 at San Francisco. Expected Return - Week 9
Kevin King
King (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans.

King came into the game drawing a doubtful tag after sitting out of Friday's practice, so this news isn't surprising. King's absence will leave the secondary shorthanded against Deshaun Watson, especially considering Darnell Savage (quadriceps) is also inactive at free safety. With King sidelined, Josh Jackson and and Chandon Sullivan are expected to see a major uptick in snaps for Sunday's contest.

Quadriceps - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Malik Taylor
Taylor was targeted twice and tallied two receptions for six yards and a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Texans.

The two receptions were a career high for Taylor and the touchdown was his first as a professional. Despite making some impact in the box score, it should be noted that Taylor was on the field for just 10 plays and finished a distant fourth in snaps among Packers receivers after ending up third in that department in Week 6 and second in the team's previous game in Week 4.

Darnell Savage
Savage (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Savage missed last Sunday's win over the Texans after sitting out practice all week, so he's taken a step in the right direction by returning to the field Wednesday. Will Redmond started in Savage's place and will do so again if the 2019 first-rounder can't shake his injury in time for this Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Billy Winn
The Packers signed Winn to the active roster Saturday.

The Packers will be without starting defensive end Tyler Lancaster for Sunday's game versus the Texans, and Montravius Adams (foot) is listed as questionable. Kingsley Keke is expected to start in Lancaster's place regardless of Adams' condition, and Winn will add depth on the defensive front either way.

Jaire Alexander
Alexander (hand/knee) put in a full practice session Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Despite dealing with repeated early-season stints on the injury report, Alexander has played through the pain and remained a formidable presence in the Green Bay secondary. Alexander has already recorded a safety, an interception and two tackles for loss, holding opposing QBs to a measly 70.2 passer rating when targeting him in coverage this season. He's trending towards a fifth consecutive start to kick off 2020, as Green Bay's secondary prepares to face a Buccaneers receiving corps that may get back Chris Godwin (hamstring) from a two-week absence.

Lucas Patrick
Patrick (shoulder) was a full participant for Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

After undergoing additional tests on his injured shoulder, Patrick avoided a serious injury after leaving Sunday's game against Minnesota. Now healthy, Patrick is expected to continue his role as the team's starting right guard.

Rick Wagner
Wagner agreed to sign with the Packers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a strong hint that the Packers don't expect to re-sign right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who profiles as one of the top linemen on the free-agent market. Wagner was once viewed similarly, but he was a bit of a disappointment in his three seasons with the Lions, eventually leading to his release last week. The 30-year-old likely will start at right tackle for the Packers, though it's possible he operates as a swing tackle or guard if the team does end up locking down Bulaga.

Knee - Limited Practice on Tuesday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Henry Black
No Updates
Nakia Griffin-Stewart
Griffin-Stewart signed with the Packers' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Packers have a deep, albeit uninspiring, group of tight ends on the active roster, but Griffin-Stewart will add depth since rookie third-rounder Josiah Deguara (shin/ankle) is hampered heading into Week 3's game versus the Saints.

Elgton Jenkins
Jenkins (ribs/back) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Jenkins was a late addition to the injury report Friday, but he's managed to progress enough to suit up Sunday. He'll draw his usual start at left guard.

Zack Johnson
No Updates
Mason Crosby
Crosby did not practice Wednesday due to calf and back injuries, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Crosby will almost certainly need to resume practicing in some capacity to suit up for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Green Bay doesn't currently have a kicker on the practice squad, so if the team signs one in free agency it could be a sign that Crosby is trending in the wrong direction.

Back - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Juwann Winfree
The Packers signed Winfree (groin) to the practice squad Thursday.

Winfree was selected in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft by Denver, but the team opted to not retain him for 2020. The second-year pro will now get a chance to continue his development on Green Bay's practice squad.

Tim Boyle
Boyle is listed as the No. 2 quarterback on Green Bay's first unofficial depth chart of the season, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Boyle kept ahead of rookie first-round pick Jordan Love throughout training camp, setting him up to reprise his role as Aaron Rodgers' backup to open a second straight season. The Packers no doubt intend to boost Love up the depth chart in the future as he continues his development, for the time being Boyle will handle the No. 2 role during Sunday's season opener in Minnesota.

Josiah Deguara
The Packers placed Deguara (torn ACL) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Deguara tore his ACL in Week 4 against the Falcons, and he'll predictably be shut down for the season. The rookie third-rounder caught one pass for 12 yards this year. The Packers have Robert Tonyan, Jace Sternberger and Marcedes Lewis (knee) available to handle reps at tight end moving forward, and Deguara should have enough time to make a full recovery for the 2021 season.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
James Burgess
The Packers signed Burgess to the active roster Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Burgess was on the Falcons' practice squad, and he'll get a fresh start in Green Bay. The 26-year-old linebacker posted 80 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception over 10 games with the Jets last season, so he could be dependable inside linebacker depth until Christian Kirksey (pectoral) returns.

Dominique Dafney
No Updates
Adrian Amos
Amos recorded six total tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 35-20 win against the Texans.

The veteran safety now has exactly one sack in three consecutive seasons, as well as a fumble recovery in three of the past four years. Green Bay sits at just 19th in scoring defense, however, and Amos has contributed to that subpar rating with his struggles in pass coverage. He's allowing 15.6 yards per completion this season with two passing TDs surrendered, after holding opponents under 12 YPC the past two seasons (with just three total TDs allowed in 32 combined appearances).

Robert Tonyan
Tonyan (ankle/knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

While Tonyan played a season-low 50 percent of the offensive snaps during the Packers' Week 7 win at Houston, it wasn't far off his normal 59-67 percent from the team's five other games on the campaign. Since compiling five touchdowns between Weeks 2 and 4, he's managed just five catches (on six targets) for 57 yards and no scores. In any case, Tonyan will look to get back to full practice participation by the end of the week.

Vernon Scott
The Packers selected Scott in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 236th overall.

Scott (6-foot-1, 206) joins Green Bay after playing for TCU, where he was less than remarkable in the box score. With no workout numbers to know his athletic traits, Scott heads to Green Bay with a largely blank prospect profile.

Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Kamal Martin
The Packers activated Martin (knee) from injured reserve Saturday.

Martin was selected in the fifth round of April's draft, and he impressed throughout training camp before suffering a meniscus injury that knocked him out for six weeks. He's back in game shape and could have a role at inside linebacker since Christian Kirksey (pectoral) remains on IR, although it may be tough to take the starting role away from fellow rookie Krys Barnes, who has been one of the team's best defensive players thus far.

Knee - Reserve - COVID-19
Jamaal Williams
Williams carried the ball 19 times for 77 yards and one touchdown in Week 7 against the Texans. He also added four receptions for 37 yards.

Williams took on the majority of the backfield work, accounting for 19 of the 24 carries given to Packers' running backs. He wasn't particularly effective on the ground, with his longest run of the day going for 13 yards late in the fourth quarter. However, he was more effective as a receiver, picking up chunk gains of 17 and 15 yards. Perhaps most importantly, it was clear that Williams was the lead back in the absence of Aaron Jones (calf). If Jones is forced to miss more time, Williams should in line for plenty of volume in Week 8 against Minnesota.

Undisclosed - Reserve - COVID-19
Chandon Sullivan
Sullivan (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Sullivan left the Week 4 matchup against the Falcons to be evaluated for a concussion, but he'll be good to go this Sunday against the Buccaneers, barring a setback. The 24-year-old cornerback has been impressive covering the slot this season, as he's allowed a 59.0 passer rating when targeted.

A.J. Dillon
Dillon carried the ball five times for 11 yards in Week 7 against the Texans.

Dillon was expected to get greater opportunity in the absence of Aaron Jones (calf). However, he was out-touched by Jamaal Williams 24-5 and managed just 11 total yards. Given that Jones' absence is expected to be brief, it's likely that Dillon missed the opportunity to command a bigger workload in the offense, at least for the time being. He and the Packers will take on the Vikings in Week 8.

Illness - Reserve - COVID-19
Krys Barnes
Barnes (shoulder/biceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Barnes started this past Sunday's win over the Texans, but he only played 27 defensive snaps before aggravating his shoulder injury and being forced to sit out for the rest of the game. The undrafted rookie out of UCLA still managed eight tackles and his first career sack before his departure. It's a positive sign that he's on the field to start the practice week, although the limited designation could signal that he's avoiding contact. If he's unable to play this Sunday against the Vikings, Kamal Martin (knee) likely would start at inside linebacker alongside Ty Summers.

Shoulder - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Kabion Ento
The Packers placed Ento (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday.

Ento made the Packers' final roster but was promptly placed on IR. He'll be required to miss at least three weeks before returning to practice, but it's tough to pin down a timeline since we don't know the nature of his injury.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Reggie Begelton
The Packers re-signed Begelton to the practice squad Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fresh off making his NFL debut during Monday's win over the Falcons, in which he wasn't targeted, Begelton returns to Green Bay's practice squad. He'll remain with the team as an emergency depth option at wide receiver.

Ryan Pope
Pope was activated off the team's reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, John Reid of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Pope had resided on the the reserve list since July 30, so the fact that he was finally activated a month later is an extremely positive sign. The San Diego State product will look to nab a depth gig for 2020 now that he's cleared.

Aaron Jones
Jones (calf) isn't practicing Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Packers have a reputation for being cautious with injured players, and coach Matt LaFleur reiterated Wednesday that the team would be "very careful" managing Jones' calf strain. LaFleur did say he hopes to have the running back available sooner than later, but it isn't clear if that will happen for Week 8 against the 49ers. A return to practice Thursday or Friday would at least give Jones a shot to make his case for suiting up.

Calf - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Darrius Shepherd
Shepherd was targeted three times and caught two passes for 21 yards in Monday's victory over the Falcons.

Shepherd's first reception went for 19 yards, and he nearly found paydirt on his second catch but was brought down just inches from the goal line. Shepherd was on the field for a season-high 36 snaps Monday with both Davante Adams (hamstring) and Allen Lazard (abdomen) sidelined, and he could continue playing some sort of role until Lazard is back. However, the Packers rarely have more than three wideouts on the field, and if Adams returns following the team's Week 5 bye Shepherd would presumably be back in the No. 4 spot on the depth chart.

Kingsley Keke
Keke posted two sacks, a pass breakup and a forced fumble in Sunday's 37-30 win over the Saints.

Keke has secured a heightened role on the Packers' defense in his second NFL season, as he's played at least 46 percent of the defensive snaps in each game this year. He was excellent in Sunday's primetime matchup, taking down Drew Brees twice to record the first two sacks of his career. His matchup will be tough in Week 4 against the Falcons since Matt Ryan has been sacked just five times this season.

Parry Nickerson
Nickerson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve by the Packers on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old exited Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay with the hamstring injury in his first action of the season, and he'll now spend at least the next three games on injured reserve. It's unclear how long Nickerson is expected to be sidelined by the injury.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 10
Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers completed 23 of 34 pass attempts for 283 yards and four touchdowns in Week 7 against the Texans.

Rodgers led the Packers to four touchdowns on their first six possessions, throwing for a score on each occasion. He connected with Davante Adams for a 45-yard score late in the third quarter, but otherwise worked the team steadily down the field for three scores within the five-yard line. It was a much more characteristic performance for Rodgers, who struggled in a Week 6 matchup against Tampa Bay. He and Green Bay will take on the Vikings in another exploitable matchup in Week 8.

Montravius Adams
Adams (toe) will play in Sunday's game against the Texans.

Adams has managed through a toe injury the past two weeks, but he's yet to sit out of game action. Look for Adams to handle his usual rotational role across the defensive line for Sunday's game.

J.K. Scott
Scott (illness) will play in Monday's game against the Falcons.

Scott popped up on the injury report after coming down with an illness Saturday. However, the team never promoted another punter to the active roster, so his status was seemingly never too much in jeopardy.

Tyler Lancaster
Lancaster (shoulder) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Lancaster suffered a shoulder injury during the Week 6 loss to the Buccaneers and wasn't able to practice all week. Kingsley Keke is expected to start at defensive end Sunday, and Montravius Adams (foot) should see an uptick in usage if he's cleared to play.

Shoulder - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
David Bakhtiari
Bakhtiari (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Bakhtiari entered the weekend doubtful and was predictably downgraded after missing a full week of practice. This will be just the seventh game Bakhtiari has missed over seven years in the league. Rick Wagner or Billy Turner is expected to start at left tackle against a fierce Texans pass rush.

Chest - Limited Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Simon Stepaniak
Stepaniak (knee) was added to the reserve/non-football injury on Saturday, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports.

The 2020 sixth-round selection suffered a torn ACL at the beginning of the year and he will sit out the remainder of the season in order to recover.

Knee - ACL - NFI-R for Week 9 at San Francisco
Dexter Williams
Williams reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Aaron Jones (calf) was sidelined for Sunday's win against the Texans, so Williams elevated to the active roster to add depth in the backfield. The 2019 sixth-round pick never got on the field with the offense, but he played 15 snaps on special teams and made a tackle. Jones' injury isn't expected to linger for very long, but if it keeps him out Week 8 against the Vikings, Williams likely would be called up again.

Allen Lazard
Lazard (abdomen) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Lazard has missed the requisite amount of time and is eligible to return from IR after having core muscle surgery in early October, but it's unsettled whether he'll suit up for Sunday's divisional clash against the Vikings. The Packers have taken cautious approaches with injuries this year, especially with key players like Davante Adams and Aaron Jones, and Lazard is in the same category because he'll be the clear No. 2 wide receiver upon his return to the lineup. If he's unable to play Sunday, Lazard stands a good chance to play Week 9 against the 49ers as long as he responds to practice well.

Abdomen - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Tyler Ervin
Ervin (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Texans.

After missing the entire week of practice, it's not surprising that Ervin will miss a second straight game. The 27-year-old has a gadget role on offense, but his kick and punt return duties will be handed over to either Chandon Sullivan or Josh Jackson.

Tipa Galeai
No Updates
Randy Ramsey
Ramsey (groin) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Ramsey has missed the first three games of the season due to this groin injury, but he'll be available for Monday's game versus the Falcons. If the 25-year-old linebacker suits up, it'll be his NFL debut.

Patrick Taylor
Taylor (undisclosed) was added to the reserve/non-football injury on Saturday, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports.

Taylor spent all of training camp on the active/non-football injury list and will now shuffle to the NFI list for the remainder of the season as he continues to recover from an undisclosed injury.

Undisclosed - NFI-R for Week 9 at San Francisco
Jonathan Garvin
The Packers selected Garvin in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 242nd overall.

A lengthy pass rusher, Garvin racked up 10.5 sacks in two seasons as a starter at Miami. A former four-star recruit, he's likely nothing more than a depth option along the Packers' defensive line.

Dean Lowry
Lowry registered a season-high five tackles in Sunday's 38-10 loss to Tampa Bay.

Lowry had just three total tackles heading into Week 6, so his five-tackle performance was a bit unexpected. He'll look to stay involved heading into Week 7 against Houston.

Ka'dar Hollman
Hollman played in four games but didn't record a tackle this season.

The rookie sixth-round pick played four defensive snaps but otherwise exclusively played special teams in the four games he was on the gameday roster. Starting cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Kevin King remain under contract next season, but the departures of Chandon Sullivan and Tramon Williams -- assuming they aren't re-signed -- could provide more depth opportunities for Hollman in 2020.

Ty Summers
Summers recorded seven tackles (six solo) across 52 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Falcons.

Summers has slotted in nicely for Christian Kirksey (shoulder) over the past two weeks, totaling 16 tackles in the contests. He only trails Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith for defensive reps among linebackers during that stretch as well.

Will Redmond
Redmond collected six total tackles while earning his first start of the season during Sunday's 35-20 win against the Texans.

Redmond had been active for the Packers' first five games of the season, but he never garnered more than 56 percent of the defensive workload in any of those contests. Sunday against Houston, Redmond fielded all 68 of Green Bay's defensive snaps while logging a season best in tackles. He'll be in line for another significant workload during Week 8 if Darnell Savage (quadriceps) is unable to make his return at free safety.

Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Treyvon Hester
Hester (undisclosed) was waived by Green Bay with an injury settlement Thursday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Hester resided on the team's IR for the past few days, but as evidenced by this news, he'll be eligible to sign with any team. He missed roughly two weeks of training camp while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so he'll look to get healthy before signing elsewhere.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Corey Linsley
Linsley (groin) will suit up in Sunday's game against Houston.

Linsley managed through the groin injury throughout practice this week, so the fact that he's healthy enough to play is a positive sign. Look for the Ohio State product to handle his usual starting role at center for Week 7.

Jace Sternberger
Sternberger hauled in a three-yard touchdown pass on his lone target in Sunday's victory over the Texans.

Sternberger notched the first regular-season touchdown of his career and was the only Green Bay tight end to find paydirt in Sunday's contest, but he finished third at his position in snaps and did not see another pass in his direction. While Sternberger was on the field for at least 30 percent of the snaps three times over the Packers' last four games, expect him and Marcedes Lewis to continue playing complementary roles behind top tight end Robert Tonyan.
