Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Ends with five-touch evening
Wilson had four carries for 16 yards and one reception for 11 yards in Saturday's 24-21 loss to the 49ers.
Wilson -- an undrafted free agent -- broke camp with the Packers after an impressive preseason, and he worked mainly in a bit role before missing six games with a shoulder injury. He returned for Week 18 and did not see action, but fellow running back AJ Dillon (thumb/neck) missed both playoff games the Packers played, and Wilson worked as the backup behind Aaron Jones in both of them. The Packers will have some decisions to make at the running back position over the offseason, and Wilson showed enough during his first season as a professional to be part of the mix heading into the 2024 campaign....

Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Works in backup role
Wilson had eight carries for 20 yards in Sunday's 48-32 victory over the Cowboys.
Aaron Jones started and played 62 percent of the snaps in Sunday's game, but Wilson -- and not Patrick Taylor -- was the second running back into the game with backfield mate AJ Dillon (thumb/neck) unavailable. It's anyone's guess how the snaps will be divided among the reserves if Dillon suits up for the upcoming matchup against the 49ers, as he is easily the most established of the bunch, and Taylor fares better as a pass blocker. However, if Dillon remains out, there's at least a chance Wilson could remain in the backup role.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Making return in Week 18
Wilson (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest against the Bears.
Wilson landed on injured reserve Nov. 22 due to a shoulder injury, and he's been working his way back since then. The rookie running back was activated from IR on Saturday, setting the stage for him to make his return Sunday in a game the Packers may need to win in order to make the playoffs. Wilson's return comes at a good time for Green Bay, as AJ Dillon (neck/thumb) is inactive for the matchup.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Activated from IR
The Packers activated Wilson (shoulder) from injured reserve Saturday, but he remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.
Wilson has not played since Green Bay's Week 11 victory over the Chargers. It remains to be seen if he will ultimately get the green light to suit up, but if he does, the first-year pro could see a few more touches than usual due to AJ Dillon (neck) being sidelined. Both Wilson and Patrick Taylor are the depth options behind Aaron Jones in the backfield.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Could return Week 18
Wilson (shoulder) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Bears, Wes Hodklewicz of the Packers' official site reports.
The first-year pro was able to log a full week of practice, but he must be activated to the Packers' active roster in order to suit up in Week 18. Wilson most recently appeared in Green Bay's Week 11 win over the Chargers, and if he's not able to play in Sunday's affair, Patrick Taylor would likely see increased opportunities as the team's No. 2 running back with AJ Dillon (hamstring) ruled out....

Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Estimated as FP at walkthrough Wed.
Wilson (shoulder) was estimated as a full participant in Wednesday's practice walk-through.
Wilson was designated to return from injured reserve Dec. 20 but hasn't yet been activated. He logged a trio of full practices last week and began Week 18 prep with an estimated FP, so he at least seems to be mostly healthy. Even if Wilson is activated ahead of Sunday's Week 18 matchup against Chicago, he isn't likely to play more than a minimal role in a game the Packers need to win in order to guarantee a spot in the postseason....

Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Gets doubtful tag
Wilson (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Wilson seems to be on track to miss his sixth straight game due to a shoulder injury he sustained in Week 11 versus the Chargers. In that case, Patrick Taylor would figure as the Packers' third option at running back Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Full participant again
Wilson (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday after being a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough as well.
The depth running back was designated to return from injured reserve Dec. 20 and practiced last week before sitting out of the Packers' win over the Panthers. Now, Wilson appears to be trending toward returning for Green Bay's Week 17 matchup with Minnesota. The rookie has 14 carries for 85 yards and no touchdowns on 33 offensive snaps this season....

Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Doubtful for Sunday
Wilson (shoulder) is listed as doubtful ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers.
The 24-year-old running back returned to practice this week after a shoulder injury landed him on injured reserve in Week 11, but it seems as if he's unlikely to suit up Sunday. Wilson would need to be activated to the Packers' active roster in order to suit up in Week 16, and assuming he doesn't play Sunday, Kenyan Drake could see increased opportunities in the team's RB room....

Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Limited participant again
Wilson (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second day in a row Thursday after being designated to return from injured reserve.
The running back has a 21-day window in which he can return to the 53-man roster. If Wilson can get in another session Friday, he may have a chance to play Sunday against the Panthers. The rookie has 14 carries for 85 yards and no touchdowns in seven games this season.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Emanuel Wilson: Returns to practice Wednesday
The Packers designated Wilson (shoulder) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
The transaction opens a 21-day window during which Green Bay can evaluate Wilson for a return to the 53-man roster. He'll resume practicing Wednesday, and if the running back can upgrade to full activity by Friday, he could be a candidate to provide depth behind Aaron Jones (knee) in Sunday's game against Carolina....
