RB Alex Green not practicing Friday

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 7, 2012 – 11:32 am

In the portion of Friday’s practice open to the media, RB Alex Green was not practicing. Green hasn’t been on the injury report all week, so one possibility is that this was a planned day off as part of his comeback from reconstructive knee surgery. Green was on a snap count all through training camp and the preseason.

We’ll know more when Mike McCarthy addresses the media after practice and the final injury report for the week is released.

Also not practicing Friday were RB James Starks and LB Jamari Lattimore. CB Davon House was doing some drills but was not wearing his helmet and did not appear to be a full participant.

Post-practice update: Green’s day of rest was planned, and he is listed as probable on the injury report for Sunday’s game.

    THIS IS A STATEMENT GAME FOR GB DEFENSE ! THEY ARE HOME AGAINST 1 OF THEE WORST OFFENSES IN THE LEAGUE LAST YEAR ! IF THEY MOVE THE BALL AT WILL AND PUT UP A LOT OF POINTS YOU CAN KISS ANY SB HOPES GOOD BY ! THIS YEARS O WILL NOT BE QUITE AS DOMINATE AS LAST YEAR BECAUSE, ALTHOGH IT DIDNT KNOW HOW TO RUN BLOCK, IT DID KNOW PASS PROTECTION..WHEN CLIFFY WENT DOWN THE PASS RUSH OF TEAMS. WITH GOOD EDGE RUSHERS BECAME A FACTOR … SO LETS HOPE FOR THE BEST !! BUT I DO SAY IF POINTS ARE SCORED ON US , AND NO RUN GAME EXCEPT FOR ROGERS; I SAY ITS TIME TO START HOLDING SOME OF THE COACHING STAFF RESPOSIBLE. … MM ALWAYS SAYS ACCOUNTABILTY- ACCOUNYABILTY , AND I AGREE ! THERE IS NO PERSON ON THIS PLANET WHO CAN EXPLAIN TO ME ,WITH THE TALENT ON THIS DEFENSE AND O-LINE, HOW IT COULD POSSIBLY BE SO BAD !

    I could not agree more with the comments, this is a GB defense game. I get so tired of people assuming this team starts out like last year and scores points at will.
    I remember the turn-around from the Kansas City game. They were the first team last year to try man coverage and not let Rogers pick the zone apart and GB struggled and was average at best.
    Teams are going to all play man against GB. The offense cannot carry the day themselves, these young rookies on defense will have to prove their worth or it could be a long season.
    I just am not on the slam dunk GB victory train. If I’m correct, they struggle this year to an 8-8 record.
    I just haven’t been convinced the defense is any better than last year.

    You’re not correct.

    Big test for Pack. Alot of people view this game as NFC championship preview. One lose does not change the season, however, with Bears 4 days away, Pack needs to avoid 0-2 start or season could change in a hurry.

    Just back from Vegas. Packers/49ers and Patriots/Texans seem like final 4 by most odds makers and betters.

    History shows how important it is to start off with a sense of urgency. The key for any football season is to win your home games. If you go 7-1 or 8-0 at home and split 4-4 on the road. You will usually win your division and make the playoffs…In addition, I think there is a stat those teams that start 0-2 60 or 70 percent of teams never make the playoffs…Go Pack and G Force!!!!
