Questionable for Week 3

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-22

Watson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Saints, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.

After opening Week 3 prep with a limited practice Wednesday, Watson was held out Thursday. Coach Matt LaFleur downplayed the DNP, telling Matt Schneidman of The Athletic that was part of the maintenance plan with Watson's workload as he makes his way back from the hamstring injury that sidelined him for the first two games of the season. Watson's availability, or lack thereof, will become known approximately 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Sits out Thursday, but no setback

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that Watson (hamstring) was a non-participant for Thursday's practice as part of a maintenance plan for the wideout rather than because of a setback, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic

Watson sat out the Packers' first two games due to the hamstring injury, but he showed some tangible progress last Friday, when he logged his first limited practice session of the regular season. The wideout remained a limited participant for the Packers' first Week 3 practice Wednesday, and even though Watson took a step back in terms of activity Thursday, hope isn't lost for the wideout to potentially play this Sunday against the Saints. In order for that to become a reality, however, Watson will presumably need to resume practicing Friday in at least a limited fashion.

Not practicing Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Watson (hamstring) wasn't present at the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

After opening Week 3 prep with a limited session Wednesday, Watson doesn't appear to be ready to go with the hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined for the first two games of the campaign. If he goes down as a non-participant Thursday, he'll have just one more opportunity for on-field work before the Packers potentially give him a designation for Sunday's contest against the Saints.

Another limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-20

Coach Matt LaFleur said Watson (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Since Watson popped up on the Packers' first injury report of the season, he sat out Weeks 1 and 2 as he tended to a hamstring issue. Despite the lack of game action, he logged a limited session last Friday and took part in individual drills Wednesday, per Rob Demovsky of The uptick in activity level is a positive sign for Watson's potential to make his season debut Sunday against the Saints, but his workload Thursday and Friday likely will determine whether he heads into the weekend with a designation.

Practicing to start week

Watson (hamstring) is practicing Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Watson missed the first two games of the season but did at least spark some optimism with his return to a limited practice Friday. Another appearance Wednesday suggests he has a real shot to make it back for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Not playing Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Watson (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game at Atlanta, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Watson made some progress through the hamstring injury that sidelined him in the season opener last Sunday in Chicago, logging a limited practice Friday before getting a questionable designation for this contest. Still, the Packers will exercise caution with their No. 1 wide receiver and hold him out for a second consecutive game. With Watson sidelined again, Green Bay's top two WRs will be Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed, with Dontayvion Wicks, Malik Heath and Samori Toure mixing in behind them.

Likely out versus Falcons

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-16

Watson (hamstring) is not expected to play in Sunday's matchup with the Falcons, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It looks like Watson's season debut will have to wait another week, but he has not officially been ruled out yet. The second-year pass catcher returned to practice in limited fashion Friday, which was cause for optimism. However, it looks like the Packers are leaning towards erring on the side of caution with him in order to avoid a lingering issue going forward. Should that indeed be the case, Romeo Doubs would again operate as the team's No. 1 receiver, while Jayden Reed would see an increased role as well.

Questionable after limited practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Watson returned to practice Friday as a limited participant and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Rob Demovsky of reports.

The end-of-week return after two missed practices suggests Watson has better odds to play than RB Aaron Jones, who is also listed as questionable but missed three straight practices with a hamstring injury. Romeo Doubs' hamstring injury is less of a concern at this point, as he scored two TDs while playing through it last week and now doesn't have an injury designation for Week 2. Watson missed the opener and may now be headed for a game-time decision ahead of the 1:00 ET kickoff this Sunday.

Misses another practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-14

Watson (hamstring) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Watson has now missed each of the Packers' first five official practice sessions of the regular season, and unless he's able to reverse that trend Friday, he'll almost certainly be on track to miss a second consecutive game this weekend in Atlanta. Romeo Doubs (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday for the second day in a row and looks on track to serve as Green Bay's No. 1 receiver Sunday if Watson is unable to play.
