Maybe the Packers receiver group won't be as decimated as first thought. Geronimo Allison is making progress through the concussion protocol and, like Marquez Valdes-Scantling, is now questionable for tomorrow against the Raiders. Allison was originally listed as doubtful.

Pack WR situation still murky 2 days before game

The Packers will wait and see on the status of Marquez Valdes-Scantling for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Fellow WR Davante Adams won't play and Geronimo Allison is questionable.

At best, it looks like the Packers could have one of their three starting receivers. Here's the injury report:

Contrary to how some Packers fans might have felt when they saw Patrick Mahomes get hurt a week before he was supposed to play Green Bay in a highly anticipated Sunday night game, Tramon Williams was bummed: "There's hype behind the game because he's that great," the Packers cornerback said. "Mahomes is that great, and you want to play against a player like that. First and foremost, hope he's OK and hope he gets the chance to play because we want to play against greatness."

Asked Marquez Valdes-Scantling what's more troublesome the knee or the ankle: "Both," he said. Adrenaline got him through the game but he's hoping treatment can get him back for Sunday against the Raiders. We'll see how they list him on the injury report.

The Packers won't have Davante Adams for the third straight week, but there's still hope for Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion). "We've got 48 hours," Packers coach Matt LaFleur said. "So we've got time to see if they'll come around." If not, it'll be Allen Lazard, Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd and Ryan Grant.

Tramon Williams, Kenny Clark and Jimmy Graham all returned. But none of the injured receivers did.

No Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Geronimo Allison for the final practice of the week. Robert Tonyan and Darnell Savage also missed the entire week of practice and appear unlikely to go Sunday against the Raiders but the official status report won't come out til later today.

His top-three receivers and two of his top-three tight ends didn't practice, yet Nathaniel Hackett walked into the interview room and said he "feels great" about the situation. The upbeat offensive coordinator said "there's always something good in every situation" and noted this time last week "we were wondering who would step up and Allen Lazard comes in and makes some unbelievable catches."

Asked Davante Adams if he's aiming for next week's game at Kansas City for his return from turf toe but he still won't rule out this week against the Raiders. However, he still hasn't practiced. Here's his answer:

Matt LaFleur said there are a couple of injured players he's not sure about for Sunday's game against the Raiders. "That is a challenge when you're not quite sure if a guy's going to be available," LaFleur said. While he wouldn't say who, that appears to be the situation at both receiver and tight end.

New Packers receiver Ryan Grant is wearing No. 11. While he looks like a prototypical slot receiver, it's worth noting that only 30 of his 123 career catches have come from the slot, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The Packers are redoing Clarke Hinkle Field and putting heating coils in the ground, so they're back on their training camp field — Ray Nitschke Field — for practice.

Thin group of receivers with all the injuries. Only four active roster wideouts at practice — Allen Lazard, Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd and Ryan Grant. And Grant was just signed yesterday.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Long list of players — most of them pass catchers— not practicing: Davante Adams (toe). Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest). Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee). Jimmy Graham (ankle). Robert Tonyan (hip). Darnell Savage (ankle). Kenny Clark (calf). Tramon Williams (not on yesterday's injury report).

If you would've given Aaron Rodgers a 5-1 start considering what the last 2 seasons have been like and with a new coach, he would've taken it. "I think we all would have taken it, for sure," Rodgers said. "I did say I think at the end of last season I didn't feel like a rebuild was necessary." He added though that he thinks "this is definitely the toughest stretch of our schedule."

The Packers' new Ryan Grant definitely knows about their old Ryan Grant. Said the new receiver about the former running back: "Since I've been drafted into this league I've been mistaken for that guy. Yeah, we share the same name. Some say we look alike. I guess it's good to have his name around here. When asked if they've ever met, he said: "Never. I would like to, though."

Packers WR Geronimo Allison is indeed in the concussion protocol — another reason they signed veteran wideout Ryan Grant.
