QNate Ebner DB NE (9) 17 hours ago
Ebner suffered a head injury during Sunday's AFC championship game and will not return.
Ebner is a fixture on special teams but nothing more. He'll look to clear concussion protocol in order to suit up for next month's Super Bowl.
QKentrell Brice DB GB (4) 17 hours ago
Brice injured his shoulder during Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, NFL.com reports.
The severity of Brice's injury wasn't revealed. He's under contract with the Packers for the next two season but will need to return to full health in order to compete for a reserve role in the secondary this summer.
QTy Montgomery RB/WR GB (4) 18 hours ago
Montgomery injured his ribs during Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons, NFL.com reports.
Montgomery went down in the first half with an unspecified injury to his ribs and did not return, finishing the game with 17 rushing yards across three totes. Christine Michael took over as the lead back in his absence. However, considering that the Packers' season now in the books, Montgomery enters the offseason as the presumed favorite for starting duties in 2017, as teammate Eddie Lacy (ankle) is set to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
Jared Cook TE GB (4) 18 hours ago
Cook caught seven of 12 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC championship game.
Cook led his team in catches and targets while coming up just four yards short of Randall Cobb's high-water mark. His 1-yard touchdown was of the garbage time variety, as it came with 6:43 left and the Falcons leading 44-15. The 29-year-old tight end's late-season chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers should have owners excited for his second campaign in Green Bay come next year.
Devonta Freeman RB ATL (11) 18 hours ago
Freeman rushed 14 times for 42 yards, and caught four of five targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship win over the Packers.
Atlanta's running game was bottled up for most of this one, but Freeman still managed to find the end zone through the air from four yards out. While he got 14 carries to Tevin Coleman's 11, it was Coleman who scored the game's only rushing touchdown by a running back from three yards out. Their timeshare has worked well enough to get to the Super Bowl, so expect both young running backs to be heavily involved in Houston.
Julio Jones WR ATL (11) 19 hours ago
Jones (toe) hauled in nine of 12 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Packers in the NFC championship game.
Jones took practice off on Wednesday and Thursday to rest his injured toe, but looked 100 percent healthy en route to his second-best yardage total and first multi-touchdown effort of the season. He did a terrific job of staying in-bounds on his three-yard touchdown with three seconds left in the first half, then took his team's second offensive play of the second half to the house from 73 yards out to make it 31-0. With 15 catches for 247 yards and three scores in two games this postseason, quarterback Matt Ryan's top aerial weapon is building momentum heading into the Super Bowl.
QLe'Veon Bell RB PIT (8) 19 hours ago
Bell (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's AFC championship game against the Patriots, Burt Lauten of the Steelers' official site reports.
Unless Bell is able to return, DeAngelo Williams will take over lead-back duties for the remainder of the game.
Matt Ryan QB ATL (11) 20 hours ago
Ryan completed 27 of 38 passes for 392 yards and four touchdowns while rushing three times for 23 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 NFC championship game victory over the Packers.
Ryan led the Falcons to 17 points on the first three possessions, capping the opening drive with a two-yard pass to Mohamed Sanu and the third with a 14-yard scramble for his first rushing score since Week 1 of the 2012 season. He later added two more touchdown passes to Julio Jones and another one to Devonta Freeman during a stretch of four consecutive touchdown drives. The 31-year-old veteran came into this postseason with a 1-4 playoff record and 9:7 touchdown to interception ratio, but has been magnificent in two appearances here with eight total touchdowns and no turnovers in guiding the franchise to its second Super Bowl appearance.
Jordy Nelson WR GB (4) 20 hours 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) 20 hours 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.
