Jordy Nelson WR GB (4) 2 days ago
Nelson (ribs) caught six of nine targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC Championship loss to the Falcons.
Nelson caught both of his targets for 42 yards on the first drive, but was held to just three receptions for 22 yards on his next six targets before getting into the end zone from three yards out late in the third quarter. The veteran wide receiver did well to even be out there after fracturing at least two ribs against the Giants two weeks ago. He should be fully healthy by the start of the 2017 campaign.
IRSam Shields DB GB (4) 2 days ago
Shields (concussion) admitted he's still experiencing concussion symptoms, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Shields appeared in just one game this season after sustaining a concussion in the season opener. While he stated he hasn't given up on playing football again, the fact he's still experiencing symptoms suggests this injury could threaten his career. Look for further updates on his health throughout the offseason.
Aaron Rodgers QB GB (4) 2 days ago
Rodgers completed 27 of 45 passes for 287 yards with three touchdowns and an interception while rushing four times for 46 yards in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship game loss to Atlanta.
The Rodgers-led Packers offense was shut out in the first half, and couldn't break the ice until he found Davante Adams from two yards out to make it 31-7 with 9:19 left in the third quarter. He later added touchdowns to Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook, but that production was much too little too late. Rodgers was intercepted by Ricardo Allen in the first half, and had another pick reversed by the replay official on his second scoring drive. While the star quarterback did a great job of running the table to get his team to this point following a 4-6 start, there's no doubt the better team came out on top here.
QBryan Bulaga GB (4) 2 days ago
Bulaga exited Sunday's NFC championship game to be evaluated for a concussion.
Bulaga is the third starter on the offensive line injured during Sunday's game. With the Packers' season all but over, he'll have the entire offseason to return to full health.
OUTDemarcus Ayers WR PIT (8) 2 days ago
Ayers (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Patriots, TribLive.com reports.
Ayers played in the Steelers' previous two playoff games, and he isn't known to be nursing an injury, so his deactivation Sunday is somewhat surprising. However, he's buried on the depth chart and wouldn't have been worth fantasy consideration anyway.
QJake Ryan LB GB (4) 2 days ago
Ryan (shoulder) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta.
The severity of Ryan's shoulder injury weren't specified. In his absence, the Packers will roll out Blake Martinez and Joe Thomas at inside linebacker for the remainder of the game.
QT.J. Lang GB (4) 2 days ago
Lang injured his foot during Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons.
Lang was carted off due to the foot issue, which will likely keep him sidelined for the remainder of the contest depending on the severity.
Fitzgerald Toussaint RB PIT (8) 2 days ago
Toussaint (concussion) will be available to play in Sunday's AFC championship game against the Patriots.
Toussaint was able to practice in full throughout the week, but he remains buried on the Steelers' depth chart at running back behind Le'Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams.
Brandon Bolden RB NE (9) 2 days ago
Bolden (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.
Bolden remains a core special-teamer for the Patriots, but given that he's clearly behind fellow RBs LeGarrette Blount, Dion Lewis and James White in the team's offense, he's off the fantasy radar.
Danny Amendola WR NE (9) 2 days ago
Amendola (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.
Amendola is a candidate to split the Patriots' No. 3 wideout reps with the returning Malcolm Mitchell, a reality that caps Amendola's fantasy upside as long as Julian Edelman (who he essentially backs up) and Chris Hogan remain healthy enough to stay on the field.
