The Packers officially placed Wilkerson (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson underwent a surgical procedure on the ankle he broke in last week's loss to the Redskins, so it was only a matter of time before he was placed on IR. It is unfortunate for the veteran lineman, because he signed a one-year, $5 million contract in the offseason with the goal of returning to the Pro Bowl form he displayed earlier in his career and securing one last big contract. He will spend the remainder of the season recovering and looking ahead to next year. Montravius Adams will presumably see his role on the line increased as a result.

Wilkerson (ankle) will miss the rest of the season, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Signed to a one-year, $5 million contract this offseason, Wilkerson managed just five tackles and no sacks in three games with the Packers. He reportedly suffered a broken ankle during Sunday's loss to Washington, with the possibility of additional damage around his foot/leg. Montravius Adams and Dean Lowry will take on larger roles along the defensive line for Green Bay.

Wilkerson (ankle) had a surgical procedure in the Washington area after suffering a significant injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinelreports.

EDGE Analysis

It isn't a good sign that Wilkerson stayed behind in Washington rather than traveling back to Green Bay with his teammates. The Packers haven't provided any kind of timeline, but this sounds like something that will probably lead to a multi-week absence even if it isn't a season-ender. Wilkerson has just five tackles and no sacks in three games with the Packers.

Wilkerson (groin) participated in practice Sunday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

Held out of practice and Thursday's preseason game against the Titans due to a sore groin, Wilkerson joined fellow defensive lineman Mike Daniels in drills Sunday. The duo, along with Kenny Clark, will compose a lethal front line once the regular season kicks off in September.

Wilkerson did not participate in Tuesday's practice due to groin soreness, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately for the Packers, Wilkerson's injury isn't being viewed as a serious one, and the veteran defensive end is likely just getting the day off as a precautionary measure. Despite coming off back-to-back down seasons following an All-Pro 2015 campaign, Wilkerson is expected to start on the defensive line in Green Bay alongside Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark.

Wilkerson will sign with the Packers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson will reunite with Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who was in the same position with the Jets when Wilkerson was drafted in 2011. The 28-year-old has recorded 44.5 career sacks over the span of seven seasons and will look to bounce back in his new home after a disappointing past two seasons.

Wilkerson completed his visit with the Packers on Thursday and has meetings scheduled with the Saints and Chiefs in the near future, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Upon his official release from the Jets on Monday, Wilkerson's representatives have lined up a number of contenders as potential landing spots for the pass rusher. After posting double-digit sacks in a season twice between 2013 and 2015, he earned a massive five-year deal in the summer of 2016, only to yield eight combined sacks across the past two campaigns. Wherever he signs next, Wilkerson will be searching for the ideal situation in which to hearken back to his most productive days.

Wilkerson is slated to visit with the Packers in Green Bay on Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson's previous employer, the Jets, let their intentions be known last Wednesday, but his release didn't become official until Monday. The owner of 44.5 career sacks, the 28-year-old defensive end has granted the Packers the first opportunity to gain his services. Helping the organization's cause is defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who coached Wilkerson his first two seasons in 2011 and 2012 in the same role. Wilkerson has posted two of his three lowest sack totals (4.5 and 3.5) the last two years, but a fresh start could put him on the path to the third double-digit sack total of his career.
