Green Bay Packers Player News: All Positions

News: Clark (calf) did not practice Thursday.
Impact: Clark was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, so it's possible that Thursday's absence is simply a maintenance day. Friday's final injury report of the week will shed some light on the starting nose tackle's chances of suiting up Sunday against Oakland. Clark hasn't yet missed a game this season.
News: King (knee/groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Impact: King practiced without restrictions Wednesday, so it's possible that Thursday's limited session is only a precautionary measure. He was limited in practice all last week but still managed to suit up for Monday's divisional win against Detroit.
News: Tonyan (hip) did not practice Thursday.
Impact: Tonyan was limited in practice to begin the week, but he's now downgraded to being a non-participant. The 25-year-old appears to be in legitimate danger of missing a second straight contest. Jimmy Graham (ankle) has yet to practice this week, so the Packers could conceivably be forced to roll with only Marcedes Lewis and Evan Baylis at tight end Week 7.
News: Graham (ankle) didn't take part in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: With back-to-back absences under his belt, Graham's availability for Week 7 remains a question mark. Friday's injury report will disclose his chances to suit up Sunday against the Raiders' 22nd-ranked pass defense.
News: Allison (concussion/chest) was held out of practice Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Allison has yet to receive clearance for on-field work as he works his way through the concussion protocol, a bad sign for his Week 7 availability. On a more positive note, Allison's chest injury seems to be a lesser concern, as an MRI returned negative earlier in the week, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Aside from Allison, the Packers' receiving corps is rife with injured players, namely Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Robert Tonyan (hip). All five were DNPs on Thursday, so Friday's injury report will be telling as it pertains to Aaron Rodgers' (knee) pass-catching options Sunday versus the Raiders.
News: Valdez-Scantling (ankle/knee) didn't practice Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Valdez-Scantling suffered undisclosed ankle and knee injuries when he was rolled up on during Monday's last-second victory against the Lions. While he was compromised, health-wise, he still played 77 percent of the snaps on offense en route to two receptions (on two targets) for 48 yards. The Packers' receiving corps is littered by injuries this week -- also, Davante Adams (toe), Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Robert Tonyan (hip) -- so whoever suits up could have plenty of opportunity to produce against the Raiders' 22nd-ranked pass defense.
News: Rodgers (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Rodgers seems to be following his regimen from a week ago, when he was limited on every injury report but subsequently entered the weekend without a designation. If he does so this week, he has a prime matchup to produce Sunday against a Raiders defense that has conceded 11 touchdown passes to signal-callers through five games. On the other hand, it's unclear who Rodgers will be throwing to, as Davante Adams (toe), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee), Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest), Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Robert Tonyan (hip) all were held out of practice Thursday.
News: Adams (toe) wasn't present Thursday for the Packers' practice session, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Though Adams was a spectator for the Packers' second consecutive practice of Week 7, the wideout noted after the session concluded that his sprained right toe feels "a million times better" compared to when he initially got injured Sept. 26 against the Eagles, per Schneidman. That said, Adams wasn't willing to speculate on when he might return to action, suggesting he's likely trending toward a third straight missed game Sunday against the Raiders.
News: Savage (ankle) was listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.
Impact: Savage has now sat out four straight practices since suffering the ankle injury Week 5 at Dallas. The 22-year-old will need to return to the practice field Thursday or Friday to have a chance of playing this week against the Raiders.
News: Tonyan (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Impact: Tonyan sustained the knee injury Week 5 against the Cowboys and didn't play versus the Lions on Monday after sitting out practice all week. The 25-year-old will likely need to advance to full participation by Friday to avoid an injury designation.
News: Graham (ankle) was a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Graham's prior appearances on injury reports this season were due to finger, groin and quadriceps concerns. On this occasion, an ankle issue is to blame for Wednesday's absence, but he has two additional opportunities to make his presence felt at practice this week.
News: Allison (concussion/chest) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Allison took the brunt of a hit from Lions defensive back Tracy Walker on Monday night, suffering a concussion and chest injury in the process. Unless he makes some noticeable progress through the protocol for head injuries Thursday and/or Friday, he won't be a candidate to suit up Sunday versus the Raiders. The Packers have a number of injuries in the receiving corps at the moment, with Davante Adams (toe) missing the past two games and Marquez Valdes-Scantling picking up ankle and knee injuries Monday.
News: Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Valdes-Scantling had his legs rolled up on during Monday's win against the Lions, but he toughed it out and still logged 77 percent of the Packers' offensive snaps by the end of the game. His production left something to be desired with Davante Adams out for a second consecutive contest -- two catches (on two targets) for 48 yards -- and Valdes-Scantling's own health now is a question mark. At the moment, the team's top three wide receivers (Geronimo Allison has a concussion) are dealing with injuries, which spurred the Packers to sign Ryan Grant on Wednesday.
News: Rodgers (knee) was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Rodgers got the LP treatment on all three of the Packers' Week 6 practice reports, only to shed his injury designation upon the release of the final one. The very same regimen may extend throughout this week as well as he prepares for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders' 22nd-ranked pass defense (263.6 yards per game).
News: Adams (toe) was estimated as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Adams has yet to practice since sustaining what has been termed a turf toe injury in many corners, but not officially touched on by the team itself. No matter, until he suits up and makes an impact on the practice field, he won't be a candidate to return to action. If he ends up missing Sunday's game against the Raiders, Adams will be logging his third absence in a row.
News: Campbell (knee) practiced Wednesday, opening up the three-week window for him to be activated from the PUP list, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Campbell's eligible to suit up for Sunday's game against the Raiders, but if he's unable to, he must play in Week 8 or 9 to avoid being shut down for the season. The fifth-year pro will likely stick to special teams if Darnell Savage (ankle) is healthy.
News: Grant signed a contract with the Packers on Wednesday.
Impact: Grant worked out for the Packers in early October, and he now lands a contract with the team. The Tulane product's opportunity comes with Davante Adams (toe) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) both nursing injuries. He'll provide Green Bay's receiving corps with some much-needed depth.
News: The Packers have designated Sternberger (ankle) to return from IR, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Sternberger will be eligible to practice this week, and he could return to action as soon as Week 9 against the Chargers. The rookie third-round pick is nursing an ankle injury sustained during Green Bay's final preseason game. The Packers are hoping Sternberger can make an immediate impact in their tight end room, which currently houses Jimmy Graham, Marcedes Lewis, Robert Tonyan (hip) and Evan Baylis.
