Geronimo Allison cleared from concussion protocol

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy addressed the media Thursday morning


GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Geronimo Allison has cleared the concussion protocol, according to Head Coach Mike McCarthy, but will remain in rehab group of Thursday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) also will work with the rehab group.

Replacing an injured Allison and Cobb during Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions, rookie receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown combined for 10 catches for 157 yards and a touchdown.

While Valdes-Scantling received his first significant offensive snaps against Buffalo two weeks ago, Sunday marked St. Brown's first extended appearance.

The rookie sixth-round pick was responsible for the Packers' biggest offensive play against the Lions with a 54-yard catch-and-run near the end of regulation, finishing the game with three catches for 89 yards.

"He's a big target who can run, very smart," McCarthy said. "He's on top of the mental aspect of it. In the no-huddle, I thought he did a very good job and made the best of his opportunities."

Second-year cornerback Kevin King is expected to practice after leaving Sunday's game with a chin laceration, according to McCarthy. The Packers will practice inside the Hutson Center due to weather.
