Davante Adams WR GB (4) 2 days ago
Adams (ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Falcons.
Rehab of a left ankle sprain dominated Adams' week, but the wideout nonetheless upheld the expectation that he'd be available for the NFC championship game. A setback aside, he'll be working within a pass offense beset by injuries to Geronimo Allison (hamstring) and Jordy Nelson (ribs).
Jordy Nelson WR GB (4) 2 days ago
Nelson (ribs) is listed as active Sunday at Atlanta.
Likely with a flak jacket in tow to protect his broken ribs, Nelson will take the field two weeks removed from logging an early exit in the wild-card round against the Giants. While his snap count could be capped in order to get the most out of him and fellow injured wide receivers Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring), Nelson will attempt to strike against a Falcons defense that has allowed 165 yards receiving per game and 19 touchdowns to the position in 17 contests this season.
Quinten Rollins DB GB (4) 2 days ago
Rollins (concussion) is active for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons.
Rollins hasn't played since suffering a concussion in the Packers' Week 17 win over the Lions. He was able to practice all week and appeared on track for a return. Against the top passing attack in the NFL, Rollins return couldn't come at a better time. Ladarius Gunter will likely see his role reduced now that Rollins is active.
IRNick Martin HOU (9) 2 days ago
Martin is recovering from his ankle surgery and will be ready for offseason practices, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports.
Martin was placed on IR during the preseason after having surgery to repair a high-ankle sprain. The rookie has been working to recover and come into offseason work completely healthy. He'll look to make his regular season debut along the Texans offensive line in 2017.
Malcolm Mitchell WR NE (9) 2 days ago
Mitchell (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's AFC championship game versus the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
If he indeed avoids the inactive list, Mitchell will be making his first appearance since Week 16. With nearly a month to rehab a knee injury, the rookie wideout could be a breath of fresh air to the passing game. However, Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan (thigh) typically receive the most snaps among Patriots wideouts on any given Sunday, thereby hindering Mitchell's potential.
Chris Hogan WR NE (9) 2 days ago
Hogan (thigh) is slated to play in Sunday's AFC championship game versus the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Hogan was ruled out of the Patriots' divisional-round victory versus the Texans in the third quarter, which led to limited practice sessions in the ensuing week of prep. Despite the cap in reps, he should earn a large portion of the snaps afforded Patriots wideouts next to Julian Edelman in this do-or-die affair.
Martellus Bennett TE NE (9) 2 days ago
Bennett (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
After seemingly tweaking his left knee in the latter stages of the Patriots' divisional-round win against the Texans, Bennett maintained a limited workload in practice this week. Nonetheless, he'll provide a big-bodied target for Tom Brady in the passing attack, seeking his fourth visit to the end zone in the last six contests.
James Harrison LB PIT (8) 2 days ago
Harrison (shoulder/triceps) is slated to play in Sunday's AFC championship game in New England, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Harrison sandwiched two full practiced about a veteran's day off Thursday, so his availability wasn't really in peril. While he'll be attempting to disrupt the usually heady Tom Brady, the Patriots' offensive line allowed just 17 sacks of the veteran signal-caller in 13 games (including playoffs) this season.
OUTLadarius Green TE PIT (8) 2 days ago
Green (concussion/illness) isn't expected to play in Sunday's AFC championship game at New England, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Green's medical chart is fraught with concussions, the most recent of which has kept him out of commission since Dec. 18. In addition to his residence in the NFL's protocol for head injuries, he caught the illness that infiltrated the Steelers' locker room this week. If he remains sidelined Sunday, Jesse James will act as the No. 1 tight end yet again.
Geronimo Allison WR GB (4) 2 days ago
Allison (hamstring) is expected to play in Sunday's NFC championship game at Atlanta, Ian Rapoport and Stacey Dales of NFL Network report.
Despite all the hand-wringing regarding the Packers' receiving corps this week, Aaron Rodgers is slated to have a full allotment of weapons available Sunday. As such, Allison will contend for snaps with Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle) behind the top healthy wideout, Randall Cobb. Although Allison was unable to practice in advance of this take-it-or-leave-it outing, he said Wednesday that his absence was merely a precaution. If so, he's a decent bet to receive a fair amount of work against the Falcons' 28th-ranked pass defense.
