Clay Matthews (groin) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.

The versatile LB will be ready to go on Sunday against the Patriots. No way that Matthews would miss this potential Super Bowl preview so long as his body permits. It is tough to tell where he will be lined up on the field, however expect him to make an impact wherever he does end up playing.

T.J. Lang (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Lang was forced from Sunday's game against the Vikings with an ankle injury but was able to return to the field. The Packers are being extra cautious with their guard being that they are already weak at the offensive line position. They want to make sure he's good to go in Week 13.

Nick Perry (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had to use a few different rotations at linebacker in Green Bay's win on Sunday over the Vikings. They will have to continue to make due without the services of Perry for the time being.

Packers signed T Justin Renfrow to the practice squad and released G Rishaw Johnson.

Just a house keeping move for the streaking Packers, who have an epic showdown and a potential Super Bowl preview in their matchup this Sunday against the Patriots.

Micah Hyde recorded four solo tackles one sack and one interception during the Packers' 24-21 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Hyde may only have nine tackles over his last three games, but he's now totaled 52 for the year to go with his two interceptions and recent punt return yards. He's become a decent option in the secondary in deeper IDP leagues and could continue to be a regular option in your lineup should his tackle numbers go back up.

Mason Crosby kicked a 48-yard field goal in his lone attempt during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Vikings on Sunday and successfully converted all three of his extra-point attempts.

While this was his lowest scoring output in eight games, Crosby continues to be a great fantasy option given the Packers' prolific offense. He's now 16-for-18 on the year in field goals with three over 50 yards and has successfully converted 40 extra-points.

Richard Rodgers caught a one-yard touchdown pass on his only target during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Vikings.

Hey! Look what I found! While it's doubtful that any fantasy owners actually used Rodgers, it's still nice to see him get his name called at least once. Of course, it was broken coverage and Rodgers was left completely alone in the end zone, so it's not like he's even remotely reliable. He's playing behind Andrew Quarless at the tight end position, so he's not really a usable option.

Andrew Quarless caught two passes on three targets for 50 yards against the Vikings on Sunday.

Qualress continues to be the lead tight end for the Packers, but rarely does he find himself a big part of the team's passing attack. The 50 yards was a season-high, but the lack of work in the red zone renders him virtually useless. He is not someone you should be using in your fantasy lineups.

Randall Cobb caught four passes on five targets for 58 yards against the Vikings on Sunday.

It was an unusually quiet day for Cobb, but overall, it was an unusually quiet day for the Packers passing attack as they let Eddie Lacy run wild over the Vikings for most of the afternoon. Chalk it up as just a bad game for the usually productive wideout and expect a much bigger performance next week against the Patriots.

Jordy Nelson caught eight passes on 12 targets for 68 yards during Sunday's win 24-21 win over the Vikings on Sunday.

The targets were there for Nelson and he came down with eight grabs, but the yardage was weak in comparison to his usual numbers and he failed to find the end zone for just the second time in his last eight games. The Packers opted to rely on the ground game a lot more in this one, so the overall passing numbers were considered tame. Expect a much bigger showing next week against New England.
