Output remains modest

Doubs was targeted four times and caught three passes for 20 yards in Sunday's 41-17 victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Doubs finished third among Packers wideouts in snaps, but in a game in which Green Bay had all its receivers available and in which they ran it more than they threw, his output was modest for the third time in three appearances since returning from a four-game absence. He has carved out a role in the Packers' offense, but it will primarily be a complementary one provided the rest of the pass catchers on the roster remain active.

Three grabs in Sunday's win

Doubs caught three of six targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Dolphins.

Analysis: The rookie saw similar volume to what he did last week in his return from an ankle injury, finishing behind Christian Watson and Allen Lazard in catches and targets. Watson left at halftime with a hip injury, however, and if he's sidelined in Week 17, Doubs could see his role grow against a Vikings secondary that's been vulnerable almost all year.

Catches all targets in return

Doubs (ankle) caught all five of his targets for 55 yards in Monday's 24-12 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Doubs returned from an ankle injury that cost him four weeks of action, promptly reclaiming a prominent role on offense while leading his team in receiving yards. Head coach Matt LaFleur hinted that the fourth-round pick would be eased back into action Monday with the Packers returning to full strength at the receiver position, but that plan was clearly thrown out the window once the game commenced. Christian Watson -- who emerged as Green Bay's No. 1 wideout in Doubs absence -- still led the team in targets and is the preferred fantasy option moving forward. That said, Doubs could be a sneaky play against the Dolphins on Sunday following his successful return to action.

Role could be limited?

Coach Matt LaFleur said Friday that Doubs has looked good in practice but won't have "too much on his plate" Monday against the Rams, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Analysis: Doubs played 82 percent or more of snaps in six straight games Weeks 3-8, averaging 4.0 catches for 38.7 yards and 0.5 TDs on 6.8 targets. He'll return to a lesser role after missing more than month with a high-ankle sprain, as his absence coincided with Christian Watson's emergence and Randall Cobb's return from injured reserve. With Allen Lazard also healthy, Doubs might just be the No. 4 receiver Monday night, or perhaps the No. 3 if Green Bay is ok with not having a slot specialist and pushing Cobb out of his normal role.

Officially logs full practice

Doubs (ankle) practiced in full Thursday.

Analysis: With an uncapped session finally under his belt, Doubs is set to return to the lineup for the first time since sustained a right high-ankle sprain Week 9 at Detroit. The Packers' receiving corps thus will be at full capacity for the first time this season, which leaves Doubs' role uncertain for Monday's game versus the Rams, as he'll likely be behind Allen Lazard and fellow rookie wideout Christian Watson. More than likely, Doubs will vie with Randall Cobb and Sammy Watkins for reps on the inside and outside, respectively.

Expects to play Monday night

Doubs (ankle) said Tuesday that he expects to play in Monday's matchup against the Rams, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Doubs hasn't played since suffering a right high-ankle sprain on the Packers' first offensive play against the Lions in Week 9. The rookie wideout returned to practice during Week 13 prep but remained sidelined for the divisional matchup against the Bears. Doubs is feeling confident he'll return to action following Green Bay's Week 14 bye, but his participation at practice Wednesday will likely provide a clearer picture on his status for Monday's matchup against Los Angeles.

Not playing in Chicago

Doubs (ankle) is inactive Week 13 against the Bears.

Analysis: Doubs returned to practice this Wednesday and proceeded to log limited sessions all week, but it won't be enough to get him back on the field for the must-win divisional matchup. With the late bye week ahead, Doubs will sit out his fourth consecutive contest, leaving Christian Watson, Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb to lead the Green Bay receiving corps.

Questionable to suit up

Doubs (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Chicago, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Dobbs returned to practice Wednesday after missing three weeks with a high-ankle sprain, and after three straight days of limited practices it's unclear if he'll miss a fourth game. It's also unclear how much playing time he'll get if he's active, as the Packers have Allen Lazard, Christian Watson and Randall Cobb all healthy ahead of Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Doubs might only be the No. 4 receiver, if he avoids the inactive list.

Dec 2, 2022 1:44 PM EST

Remains limited at practice

Doubs (ankle) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Doubs took part in on-field work Wednesday for the first time since suffering a high right-ankle sprain back in Week 9. He officially was a limited participant, and coach Matt LaFleur told Rob Demovsky of on Thursday that Doubs "looked good. We had an individual period where we were running pretty good. ... We'll see how he looks today." Doubs now has strung together back-to-back capped sessions, giving him just one more chance to prove his health before the Packers potentially make a ruling on his availability for Sunday's game at Chicago.

Dec 1, 2022 1:57 PM EST

Officially limited Wednesday

Doubs (ankle) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday.

Analysis: Doubs has missed the last three games due to a high right-ankle sprain, but he signaled that he was closing in on the later stages of his recovery by joining the rehab group on the side last Thursday. Now, the rookie fourth-round pick has participated in an official practice, potentially setting up a return to action Sunday in Chicago. The Packers have a Week 14 bye on tap, so they could opt to play it safe with Doubs. Having said that, if he's able to do enough to suit up this weekend, he'll he joining a receiving corps that has seen fellow first-year player Christian Watson take off across from Allen Lazard during Doubs' absence. Whenever Doubs returns, he may not be better than third or fourth in the pecking order in Green Bay's passing game.

Nov 30, 2022 1:49 PM EST

Back at practice

Doubs (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of reports.

Analysis: Doubs was a near-every-down player before his ankle injury, but was trending down even before it happened and likely will be returning to a smaller role now that fellow rookie Christian Watson is thriving across from veteran wideout Allen Lazard. The Packers also have Randall Cobb in the slot, potentially making Doubs the No. 4 receiver when he returns, which could be as soon as this Sunday in Chicago.

Sidelined for Week 12

Doubs (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Analysis: Since sustaining a right high-ankle sprain in a Nov. 6 loss to the Lions, Doubs has yet to log any recorded practice activity and will now miss his third consecutive game. According to Kassidy Hill of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Doubs appeared to demonstrate some progress Thursday, when he was spotted working out with the group of other Packers players who were managing injuries. While Doubs' presence at Thursday's session was a positive sign, he'll still likely need to string together multiple full or limited practice sessions next week to have a legitimate shot at playing in the Packers' Dec. 4 matchup with the Bears.

Nov 25, 2022 1:37 PM EST

Shows positive signs Thursday

Doubs (ankle) worked with the rehab group during Thursday's practice, Kassidy Hill of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. However, Doubs went down as a non-participant on the injury report.

Analysis: The on-field work marked Doubs' first since picking up a high-ankle sprain back in Week 9, which has sidelined him the last two games. Coach Matt LaFleur told Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Wednesday that the Packers weren't ready to rule Doubs out for a third consecutive contest until they viewed how he progressed this week. Considering Doubs has yet to be listed as limited, he seems to be trending another absence Sunday at Philadelphia, something that may be confirmed as soon as Friday. Question marks remain in the Green Bay receiving corps, as both Allen Lazard (shoulder) and Randall Cobb (illness) had a cap on their reps both Wednesday and Thursday, leaving fellow rookie Christian Watson, Sammy Watkins and Samori Toure as the healthy options at the position.

Nov 24, 2022 3:17 PM EST

Unlikely to play this week

Coach Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he isn't counting on Doubs (ankle) to return for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, though the Packers do want to see how the wideout progresses throughout the week, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Analysis: In other words, LaFleur doesn't expect Doubs to play but isn't quite ready to rule him out for a third straight game. The Packers head coach made similar comments last week, saying it was "premature" to discuss a return for the upcoming matchup with Philadelphia, and there may be somewhat less of a rush now that Christian Watson and Randall Cobb are healthy. For all the Packers' other issues, the WR room is in much better shape than it was a few weeks ago when Doubs suffered a high ankle sprain in the Nov. 6 loss to Detroit.

Nov 23, 2022 10:19 AM EST

Small chance to return in Week 12

Coach Matt LaFleur relayed Friday that Doubs (ankle) has a chance to return for a Week 12 game at Philadelphia on Sunday, Nov. 27, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. "He's getting closer, but I think it's premature to put that out there right now," LaFleur said.

Analysis: On the heels of missing a second game in a row Thursday against the Titans, Doubs is in the middle of his rehab from a high right-ankle sprain that he suffered back in Week 9. Typically, such injuries require at least four weeks of recovery, so LaFleur's comments seem to indicate it's unlikely Doubs will be back next weekend. In the end, whenever Doubs gets back on the practice field, the waiting game will ensue to see if he has a chance to return to action.

Nov 18, 2022 1:37 PM EST

Sitting out Week 11

Doubs (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Doubs hasn't practiced since suffering a right high-ankle sprain in a Nov. 6 loss to the Tigers and will now miss his second game in a row. Though he's expected to need around 4-to-6 weeks to recover from the ankle sprain, the Packers' decision to thus far resist placing Doubs on injured reserve implies that they believe he has a shot at limiting his absence to three games. Doubs thus looks unlikely to make it back for a Week 12 matchup with the Eagles, but a Week 13 return against the Bears on Dec. 4 could still be in the forecast.

Dealing with high-ankle sprain

Doubs has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain Monday and could be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Doubs used crutches and had a walking boot on his right foot after exiting Sunday's loss to Detroit due to a right ankle injury, and while further tests will reveal an exact timetable for his return, it looks like the rookie fourth-round pick could be a candidate for a stint on IR. The Packers haven't officially commented on Doubs' status, but with fellow rookie Christian Watson (head) also having left Sunday's loss to be evaluated for a concussion, Aaron Rodgers is running out of playmakers in the aerial game. It's a piece of good news that Aaron Jones (ankle) appears to have avoided a serious issue, but with Randall Cobb (ankle) not eligible to come off IR until Week 11, Green Bay's already struggling offense could face further issues Week 10 versus Dallas' stout defense. Samori Toure figures to handle more playing time as long as Doubs is sidelined, while Amari Rodgers could also see more opportunities.

Using crutches, boot after Week 9

Doubs (ankle) was using crutches and had a walking boot on his right foot after Sunday's loss at Detroit, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Doubs lasted just one play (an 18-yard catch) before making his way to the sideline visibly hobbled. Packers trainers examined his right ankle in the sideline tent before he was carted to the locker room, and he eventually was ruled out after halftime. Fellow rookie wide receiver Christian Watson also left the game to be evaluated for a concussion for the second week in a row, so Green Bay's already banged-up group of pass catchers is even more so after Week 9. The statuses of both Doubs and Watson may receive some clarity in the coming days, but with Randall Cobb (ankle) on IR for at least one more contest, Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Amari Rodgers and Samori Toure currently are the healthy options at the position on the active roster.

Nov 6, 2022 2:09 PM EST

Ruled out of Sunday's game

Doubs (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game in Detroit.

Analysis: Doubs went down on the Packers' first play from scrimmage at the end of an 18-yard catch, hobbling to the sideline, having his right ankle examined and getting carted to the locker room afterward. With no chance to reenter this Week 9 contest, the offense will be down to Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Christian Watson, Amari Rodgers and Samori Toure at wide receiver.

Nov 6, 2022 11:49 AM EST

Injures ankle Sunday

Doubs (ankle) was carted to the locker room during the first quarter of Sunday's game at Detroit, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: On the Packers' first play from scrimmage, Doubs got open on a slant route and recorded an 18-yard catch, but he was hobbled going to the sideline, where his lower right leg was examined in the medical tent before he left the field entirely. He officially was deemed questionable to return due to an ankle issue, but if he's unable to, Green Bay's available wide receivers will be Allen Lazard, Sammy Watkins, Christian Watson, Amari Rodgers and Samori Toure.
