RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-02

Stokes (hamstring) will not have his fifth-year option exercised by the Packers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Stokes had a successful rookie campaign after Green Bay selected him in the first round of the 2021 Draft, but he's had trouble staying on the field since. The Georgia product appeared in just three games in 2023, while suiting up nine times in 2022. If he can remain healthy this season though, he should be able to make an impact in Green Bay's secondary and is expected to start opposite Jaire Alexander at corner.

Done for season

Stokes (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Stokes appeared in each of the Packers' last two games since coming off injured reserve in mid-December, but it seems as if his hamstring issue is bothering him once again and he'll now miss the remainder of the season. The 2021 first-round pick has really struggled to stay on the field over the past two years, playing in just 12 of Green Bay's 32 games. Stokes' move to IR likely makes room for Carrington Valentine to start in the Packers' secondary over the next two weeks.

Out Week 17

Stokes will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Vikings due to a hamstring injury.

Stokes was a late addition to the Packers' injury report with a hamstring injury that has been lingering with him for a while. With Jaire Alexander (suspension) also sidelined, Green Bay will be thin at cornerback. Thus, Keisean Nixon and Carrington Valentine are the likely candidates to step up in the secondary.

Will make return Week 15

Stokes (hamstring) is active to face the Buccaneers on Sunday, Mike Spofford of the Packers' official site reports.

Stokes was activated from injured reserve Saturday and will suit up Sunday for the first time since Week 7. In his only game so far this season, the cornerback logged zero defensive snaps and four special-teams snaps before hurting his hamstring. Stokes' return Sunday will provide extra depth in the Packers' defensive backfield with Jaire Alexander missing another contest due to a shoulder injury.

Activated from IR

Green Bay activated Stokes (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday.

Stokes has played in only one contest this season, logging four special-teams snaps and no defensive snaps Week 7 against Denver. He hurt his hamstring in that game and was subsequently placed on IR. Stokes remains questionable to face the Buccaneers on Sunday, though his prospects for suiting up appear strong given that he logged three full practice sessions this week.

Questionable for Sunday

Stokes (hamstring) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Wes Hodklewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Stokes was been a full participant in practice over the last two weeks, but is still on the team's IR after being designated to return Nov. 27. He's appeared in just one game this season -- Week 7 against the Broncos -- and has a good chance to return for Sunday's NFC clash.

Starts week with full practice

Stokes (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

The Packers designated Stokes to return from injured reserve Nov. 27. He was able to practice in full in the week leading up to Monday's contest against the Giants, but he ended up sitting out. Still, the fact Stokes has been able to practice without limitations is a good sign for him to make his return Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Questionable for Monday

Stokes (hamstring) was a full participant in Saturday's practice but is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Giants, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Stokes was able to participate fully in all three practices this week, which gives him a good chance of being activated from the Packers' IR ahead of Monday's contest. He's played just one game this season as he's battled multiple lower body injuries.

Has no limitations during practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-07

Stokes (hamstring) was a full participant during practice Thursday.

Stokes is still in the middle of his 21-day window to practice with the team since he was designated to return from IR on Nov. 27. The Packers can return him to the 53-man roster at any point, but it's not clear if they will do so ahead of Monday's game against the Giants.
