Chiefs at Packers
G Jeff Allen (knee), T Eric Fisher (ankle), TE Demetrius Harris (foot), LB Joshua Mauga (achilles), T Donald Stephenson (ankle), WR De'Anthony Thomas (calf), RB Charcandrick West (achilles), WR Albert Wilson (shoulder)
Packers (Green Bay did not practice on Saturday. The Saturday practice report is an estimation.)
T Bryan Bulaga (knee), CB Demetri Goodson (hamstring)
WR Davante Adams (ankle), S Morgan Burnett (calf), RB Eddie Lacy (ankle), LB Mike Neal (groin), S Sean Richardson (ankle), RB Aaron Ripkowski (shoulder)
WR Randall Cobb (shoulder)
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said via NFL.com: "I thought Eddie did some good things in his limited reps. Monday night game, so we have a lot of time left. I feel good about treatment today, light practice tomorrow and obviously all day Monday. I think Eddie and Davante are both progressing."
James Starks carried 20 times for 95 rushing yards and earned four receptions for 11 receiving yards. Starks will get the bulk of the workload if Lacy can't go. The ideal situation is if owners have both backs and can make a last-minute switch.
Adams played through his injury during last Sunday's victory. If the second-year player is hindered at all it should open up the door for rookie Ty Montgomery to play an even larger roll in the Packers' offense after catching four balls for 37 yards in Week 2. Montgomery could be in line for the bevy of receiver screens that generally would go Adams' way, NFL.com said.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 2. Cobb should be fine to play, but he may draw Richard Sherman in coverage. The Seahawks confirmed that Sherman would play more in the slot this season.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Cobb should be fine to play, but he may draw Richard Sherman in coverage. The Seahawks confirmed that Sherman would play more in the slot this season.
The Seahawks intend to use Richard Sherman in the slot more frequently this year when the right opportunity calls for it.
“Putting Richard inside it allows him to use all of the savvy and the instincts that he has,” HC Pete Carroll said. “He’s a marvelous player in terms of awareness and vision and anticipation and all of that. … He likes it. There’s a lot going on. There’s a lot to learn for him in there as well and we’re going to use it as it fits.”
Sherman said he got a text from the coaching staff last Monday night asking him to learn the position for the week. Ultimately, he ended up playing over 10 snaps in the slot in nickel situations against the Rams.
The Packers frequently feature three wide receiver formations offensively that could call for Sherman to play many more snaps inside this week.
Related Players: Randall Cobb
Sherman has traditionally played one side of the field, but has been moving around more of late. In an early season matchup last year, the Packers put Jarrett Boykin on Sherman's side of the field and basically ignored both players most of the day. If Sherman is on Cobb it will certainly be an interesting battle, though it's probably not going to be good for Cobb's fantasy production. Remember, he's still recovering from a shoulder injury.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Cobb should be fine to face the Seahawks after faring pretty well against Chicago in Week 1.
"I didn't have any setbacks after the game," Cobb said, per ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "I feel the same way I did before the game yesterday, so I guess that's a good thing. Hopefully it continues to progress."
Cobb said he tried to get out of bounds or dodge hits whenever he could, according to ESPN. He finished the game with a team-leading five receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown.
The story went on to say until his injury is fully healed, Cobb must be careful to protect himself, that includes against a ferocious Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 2.

Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 1. His range of motion is somewhat limited, but the probable tag means that he’s going to play. Cobb has averaged 4.3 receptions for 80 yards and 1.7 TD in his last three meetings with the Bears, and the Packers need him to produce with Jordy Nelson out for the year.

We'll be doing our usual Essential Practice Notes later in the day, but there are a number of players with evolving injury situations, so we thought we'd discuss them here:
- Zach Ertz (groin) was cleared for Wednesday practice. It's a good sign for his Monday availability. We would try to avoid starting him this week, but some owners may not have that option.
- Alshon Jeffery (calf) returned to practice. It now appears that he’s on track to play Week 1. After the Kevin White situation, the Bears are not to be trusted when it comes to injury information, but owners can pencil him into lineups.
- Mike Evans (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Nearly two weeks ago, Evans said that he could have played had there been a game, so we’re expecting him back at practice at some point this week. Stay tuned.
- LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is "ready to roll" per HC Rex Ryan. Expect a near-normal workload in Week 1.
- Victor Cruz (calf) is still not practicing. He seems unlikely to play against the Cowboys in Week 1. Beat writer Dan Graziano says there’s a “good chance” that Cruz doesn’t play before Week 4. Rueben Randle becomes a Sneaky Start if Cruz is out. Last year, Randle played 79 percent or more of the snaps in 13 games. In those games he averaged 5.0 catches for 65 yards and 0.23 TD. This equates to #25 WR-type numbers when we look at 2014 totals.
