News: Rodgers pulled a calf muscle in his left leg early in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Rodgers, who had also been battling the flu over the last couple of days, tweaked his calf during the Packers' second series on Sunday, but continued to play through the issue. With that in mind, the QB doesn't believe that the injury will impact his availability for next Sunday's game against the Lions. "It's too early to give a 100 percent guarantee, but it would definitely take a lot to hold me out of that game," Rodgers said after Green Bay's Week 16 win.
News: Nelson had nine catches on nine targets for 113 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Impact: A week after he dropped a number of passes, including a clear long touchdown, Nelson bounced back in a great way, though fantasy owners had to sweat it out a bit, as his touchdown didn't come until 2:45 left in the game. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win, though they'll have to beat the Lions in Week 17 to win the NFC North, which should mean Nelson will get a full workload. The Lions limited him to just five catches for 59 yards back in Week 3.
News: Cobb had 11 catches on 14 targets for 131 yards Sunday against the Bucs.
Impact: Cobb led the Packers in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though quarterback Aaron Rodgers' lone touchdown went to Jordy Nelson. Cobb hit the 100-yard mark for the fifth time this season and first since Week 11 against the Eagles. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win Sunday and will face off against the Lions in Week 17 to determine the winner of the NFC North, which means Cobb should get his full workload. However, the Lions boast one of the best defenses in the NFL and held Cobb to just three catches for 29 yards back in Week 3.
News: Rodgers completed 31-of-40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers, though he may have been limited a bit due to an illness and a possible lower-leg injury suffered in the first quarter, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Despite the issues, Rodgers still managed to break the 300-yard mark for the eighth time this season, including the third time in the last four games. He connected with seven different receivers, though he waited until 2:45 left in the game to throw his lone touchdown pass, which went to Jordy Nelson. Up next is a Week 17 matchup against the Lions, with the winner taking the NFC North title.
News: Lacy had 17 carries for 99 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as one catch on one target for five receiving yards Sunday against the Buccaneers, though he missed most of the fourth quarter because of cramps, ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Lacy eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark for the second consecutive season and now has nine touchdowns in his last seven games. The Packers clinched a playoff spot with the win, but they are still playing for a first-round bye, which means Lacy should be on the field in Week 17 against the Lions, who are competing with the Lions for the NFC North title.
News: Lacy is experiencing minor cramping and is probable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.
Impact: Lacy was seen getting his calf massaged on the sidelines, but the cramping isn't expected to be overly serious. He'll continue to receive treatment, but it would be surprising if his day is already done. In the meantime, John Kuhn has been seeing extra carries for the Packers.
News: Neal (abdomen) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Impact: Neal was among the Packers' linebackers that were limited in practice this week, but he'll suit up to provide the team with another pass rush option. He's been held without a sack in back-to-back games, however, and has brought down opposing quarterbacks just 3.5 times on the season.
News: Matthews (biceps) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Impact: Matthews was limited in practice all week by the ailment, but it won't prevent him from providing the Packers with a force on the edge, as well as inside. The 28-year-old linebacker has 52 tackles and 7.5 sacks on the season.
News: Lacy (eye) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Impact: Lacy practiced in a limited fashion all week, but as expected, the issues with his contact lenses will not prevent him from taking the field Sunday. The 24-year-old back has averaged 4.9 yards per carry over his last five games, and although the Tampa Bay defense allows just 3.9 yards per rush to opposing backs, it's a solid matchup for fantasy owners.
