OUTLadarius Green
TE PIT (8)
19 hours ago

Green (concussion/illness) is inactive for Sunday's AFC championship game at New England.

EDGE Analysis

With Green, who suffered his latest concussion back on Dec. 18, still sidelined, Jesse James is once again in line to continue to head the Steelers' tight end corps Sunday.

Jabaal Sheard
DL NE (9)
19 hours ago

Sheard (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Sheard, who was limited in practice throughout the week, will be available to provide depth at defensive end behind Chris Long and Trey Flowers.

OUTMichael Floyd
WR NE (9)
19 hours ago

Floyd is inactive for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

With Malcolm Mitchell back in action, Floyd is the odd man out Sunday, with Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix against Pittsburgh.

Dont'a Hightower
LB NE (9)
19 hours ago

Hightower (shoulder) will be active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Hightower was able to participate in practice throughout the week, so he'll ultimately be good to go for the AFC championship game. Expect him to start at middle linebacker per usual as the Pats look to shut down the Steelers' potent offense.

QLane Taylor
GB (4)
20 hours ago

Taylor injured his knee during Sunday's game against the Falcons and his return is questionable.

EDGE Analysis

The severity of Taylor's knee issue is currently unknown, but he may be able to return following the halftime break.

QMicah Hyde
DB GB (4)
20 hours ago

Hyde injured his shoulder during the first half of Sunday's NFC championship game against the Falcons and his return is questionable.

EDGE Analysis

The Packers' secondary struggles continue, while they hope Hyde will be able to return in the second half.

Christine Michael
RB GB (4)
22 hours ago

Michael (back) is listed as active for Sunday's NFC championship game in Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Michael arrived on the injury report Saturday with a back issue, which was only a momentary worry for the Packers' backfield depth. At the very least, he'll act as a complementary piece to Ty Montgomery. Having said that, injury woes at wideout could result in Montgomery handling more work as a receiver, elevating Michael in the ground game.

Morgan Burnett
DB GB (4)
22 hours ago

Burnett (quadriceps) is active for Sunday's NFC championship tilt against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett was expected to play despite missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday and being limited on Friday. The veteran safety has played in 92 percent of Green Bay's defensive snaps this season and is a vital part of the team's secondary. His play will provide a boost to a Packers defense that will have it's hands full with the league's highest scoring offense in the Falcons.

Geronimo Allison
WR GB (4)
23 hours ago

Allison (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Absent from practice this week due to a hamstring injury, Allison was among a trio of Packers wideouts -- along with Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Davante Adams (ankle) -- with questionable availability for the NFC championship game. All three have met expectations and will be available, but it's difficult to know precisely what kind of snap count can be expected of each player. As a result, Randall Cobb appears to be the most trustworthy of Aaron Rodgers' options at wide receiver.

Davante Adams
WR GB (4)
23 hours ago

Adams (ankle) is listed as active Sunday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

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).
