Green Bay Packers news, rumors and injuries

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless has not reported to training camp, and the Packers still don't know when he will do so. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Quarless is dealing with a difficult family situation and that he'll be gone as long as he needs to be. Quarless was arrested and charged earlier this month for firing a gun, but that seems to be unrelated to his current situation.
Fantasy Tip: Until Quarless reports, Richard Rodgers should see plenty of time with the first team. Rodgers and Quarless could end up forming a committee at tight end. Neither are worth selecting as your starting fantasy tight end.

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (undisclosed) left practice early Thursday, July 30, because of an undisclosed injury after he fell during a drill. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he does not believe this injury is related to the knee injury that kept Abbrederis out for the 2014 season.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be limited during training camp even though he has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. "We're not counting throws all the time, and it's not a concern as it will be when he's later in his career," McCarthy said. "I mean, he's still very physically fit and so I don't feel like I need to protect him because of any type of elbow or shoulder issue, thing like that. But we just work through it, communicate and see where he's at every day." McCarthy said Rodgers' playing time in the preseason will not change.
Fantasy Tip: Rodgers is entering training camp healthy and has a terrific group of wide receivers to work with this season. Rodgers should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in most drafts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy's powerful style is the perfect complement Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, and he is one of the safest bets to deliver RB1 value in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Gresham would have a bit of upside in this offense, but he's a middling TE2 target.

Fantasy Tip: Lacy has back-to-back seasons of at least 1,100 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. He was more involved in the passing game last year as well, scoring four times through the air on 42 receptions. Lacy should be taken as a top-five running back in 2015 fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne could be worth a WR5 flyer if he's brought to Green Bay.

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless probably won't be imprisoned since he was charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public, but he said it was an act caused by drunken stupidity, not violence.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear who will be the starting tight end between Quarless and Richard Rodgers at this point. Rodgers is expected to have an increased role and Quarless may be giving him the opportunity for more playing time with his off-field actions.

Green Bay Packers RB Rajion Neal may be leading the pack to play behind RBs Eddie Lacy and James Starks this season. Neal's familiarity with the offense could put him ahead of rookie RBs John Crockett and Alonzo Harris.
