  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Will return to Green Bay

    The Packers and Nixon (concussion) agreed Monday on a one-year deal with a max value of $6 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Nixon signed with the Packers in March of 2022 and reunited with special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who coached Nixon during his previous stint in Las Vegas. Nixon, an undrafted product out of South Carolina, periodically saw some work on defense with Green Bay, totaling 23 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble across 276 defensive snaps, but he made his mark as a return man after Amari Rodgers was waived in November. Nixon totaled 1,009 kick-return yards, 140 punt-return yards and one touchdown across 12 games as the primary return man en route to first-team All-Pro honors. Based on Rapoport's report, it sounds like Nixon's new deal is laced with incentives, so he'll have to build off his success from last year to earn the full $6 million. He suffered a concussion during the Packers' Week 18 loss to the Lions, but there's no reason to believe that issue will impact his availability for offseason workouts.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Evaluated for concussion in Week 18

    Nixon is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday against the Lions.

    Nixon took a big hit at the end of a fourth-quarter kickoff return in the season finale. The 25-year-old return man showed promise in 2022, scoring a kick return touchdown in Week 17 against the Vikings while adding numerous other lengthy returns.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Ready to roll Sunday

    Nixon (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports.

    Nixon, who departed last weekend's matchup versus Miami due to a groin injury, is now in line to play and operate as Green Bay's kick and punt returner New Year's Day against Minnesota. The 25-year-old has thus far provided the Packers with a spark on special teams this year, something the team has lacked the past few seasons.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Questionable for Week 17

    Nixon (groin) has been deemed questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Nixon was forced out with a groin injury and did not return during last week's win over the Dolphins. He then did not participate in each practice of Week 17 prep, though it appears he'll still have a chance to play. Nixon has provided a jolt to Green Bay since taking over as the team's primary returner, making numerous big plays, including a 93-yard kick return early in the first quarter last Sunday. Should Nixon be ruled inactive prior to this Sunday's 4:25 pm E.T. kickoff, rookie wideout Romeo Doubs will likely assume the team's primary return duties versus Minnesota.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Won't return Sunday

    Nixon (groin) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

    Nixon suffered a groin injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game after providing a spark for Green Bay as a kick returner early in the matchup. Romeo Doubs will likely continue to fill in as the Packers' return man down the stretch, while Nixon's next chance to suit up will be Jan. 1 against the Vikings.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Managing groin injury

    Nixon is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Dolphins due to a groin injury.

    Nixon had a 93-yard kick return ahead of the Packers' first offensive possession Sunday, but he apparently sustained a groin injury in the second quarter. It's unclear whether he'll be able to return, but Romeo Doubs took over as Green Bay's kick returner late in the second quarter.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Delivers again in return game

    Nixon had three solo tackles in Monday's 24-12 victory over the Rams. He also returned three kicks for 95 yards and two punts for 36 yards in the game.

    Nixon continues to be revelation for the Packers, as he played every defensive snap Monday night and again made an impact in the return game. He now finds himself second in the league in kick return yards, and although he has taken back just six punts, he ranks second league-wide with an average of 15.3 yards per punt return.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Makes mark in victory

    Nixon had two assisted tackles and an interception in Sunday's 28-19 victory over the Bears. He also returned four kicks for 102 yards in the game.

    The interception was the first of Nixon's career, and it came late in the fourth quarter and ensured the Packers walked away with the win. He also racked up over 100 return yards for the fourth game in a row. Nixon will presumably continue fielding kicks after the Packers' Week 14 bye, and he figures to remain part of the defensive game plan for as long as fellow cornerback Eric Stokes (ankle/knee) is sidelined.
