QAndrew Luck QB IND (10) 2 days ago
Luck underwent offseason surgery to repair a right shoulder injury, Colts owner Jim Irsay reports.
Luck has apparently been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury since 2015, but that didn't stop him from throwing for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns in 2016. Although Irsay didn't get into the specifics of the procedure, he did note that Luck will be ready to begin his sixth NFL season in 2017.
IRMarcus Martin SF (8) 3 days ago
Martin (ankle) was placed on injured reserve during Week 17.
Removed from Week 15 due to an ankle injury, Martin didn't make another appearance the rest of the way and eventually landed on IR in order to open up a roster spot for reserve RB Raheem Mostert.
QQuinten Rollins DB GB (4) 3 days ago
Head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Rollins is closing in on clearing the concussion protocol, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Sidelined since suffering a neck injury and concussion in Week 17, Rollins only returned to practice last Wednesday in a limited capacity. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Rollins has maintained such a level through this Wednesday, but McCarthy's words imply that he may bump up to full participation in the near future. Even if he does, Rollins will be at the behest of an independent neurologist in order to escape the protocol entirely.
QMorgan Burnett DB GB (4) 3 days ago
Burnett (quadricep) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Instead, Burnett's focus was on rehab. The preceding regimen is necessary after injuring his thigh on a collision with teammate Ladarius Gunter during Sunday's divisional-round victory at Dallas, knocking Burnett from the game early, per Ryan Wood of USA Today. Due to his do-it-all nature up the middle of the Packers' defense, Burnett's activity level will be viewed with a watchful eye as the week unfolds.
Mason Crosby K GB (4) 3 days ago
Crosby (illness) missed practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The hero of the Packers' divisional-round win at Dallas, Crosby has since come down with an illness. Fortunately for the 10-year veteran, he has plenty of time to rest up (and hydrate) for Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta. Expect Crosby's status to receive clarification by the end of the week.
Jayrone Elliott LB GB (4) 3 days ago
Elliott (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports.
Elliott has missed every game since Week 15 due to an unspecified hand injury. While his full participation in practice Wednesday seemingly bodes well for his chances of breaking said streak, the same was true last week and Elliott was ultimately deactivated for Sunday's divisional-round showdown against the Cowboys.
QGeronimo Allison WR GB (4) 3 days ago
Allison didn't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
With Jordy Nelson (ribs) out of commission in the divisional round, Allison was a veritable third wideout behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb on Sunday. Earning 41 of the 71 offensive snaps, Allison posted three receptions for 46 yards, which ranked fifth and fourth, respectively, among Packers receivers. Allison's absence from practice Wednesday throws a wrench the team's prep for the NFC championship game in Atlanta, as he joined Adams (ankle) on the sideline. On a positive note for the offense, Nelson took part in a limited capacity, which Allison will attempt to match or surpass as the week draws to a close.
Jeff Janis WR GB (4) 3 days ago
Janis (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports.
Janis has been nursing an injured quadriceps for over a week now, but managed to play through the pain during last Sunday's showdown against the Cowboys. Look for him to up his participation in practice Thursday or Friday.
QJordy Nelson WR GB (4) 3 days ago
Nelson (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Prior to drills, head coach Mike McCarthy repeated the company line with Nelson from a week ago, stating the wide receiver would be contained to rehabilitation due to multiple rib fractures stemming from wild-card weekend. A short time later, though, Nelson was seen moving about casually and catching passes on a side field in the portion of practice open to the media, according to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The activity must have been enough to convince the training staff to allow Nelson to participate in some individual drills, hence the limited session. The preceding is more than can be said for Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring), a development that may have started Nelson down the path to active status for the NFC championship game. However, setbacks will likely have to be avoided as the Packers continue their preparations.
Perrish Cox DB SEA (5) 3 days ago
Cox signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, NFL.com reports.
Although Cox started 22 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, very few teams have had any interest in him since his November release. Now in Seattle, he'll fight for a reserve role in the secondary in advance of the 2017 campaign and could make for a solid insurance policy if DeShawn Stead (knee - ACL) doesn't recover in time for the season opener.
