No setbacks so far for Morgan Burnett

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 12, 2013 – 4:52 pm

Packers S Morgan Burnett practiced for the second straight day on Thursday in a limited fashion without any setbacks to his hamstring injury, which kept him out of last week’s opener in San Francisco.

Also, G Josh Sitton (back) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday’s workout. Thursday’s practice was in pads.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Burnett was able to do more in practice on Thursday than initially expected, but after Burnett suddenly was held out of practice last Friday and had to miss the game, caution is certainly being exercised.

“It’s better than last week,” Burnett said. “It’s improving, it’s getting there. We’re going to see how I feel tomorrow.

“I want to be out there so bad. I’m anxious to get out there and get the season started. But the trainers and guys there, they’re doing their job, so that’s why we have to play it by ear.”

McCarthy said the situations for Sitton and Finley are similar. If their medical exams go well Friday morning and they can practice again, their chances of playing will look even better.

CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for the second straight week, and CB Jarrett Bush pulled up in practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury and was added to the injury report. Bush was on the report last week with an ankle injury but still played.

LB Nick Perry (neck) was downgraded to a limited participant in practice after going full on Wednesday, when practice was not in pads. McCarthy said Perry’s stinger “flared up” after Wednesday’s practice and his evaluation was ongoing.

    Gosh what is up with the Packers having all these Hamstring injuries/flareups???! is there something wrong with training staff/conditioning? someone should ask some questions and get some answers!!!

    Hmmmm…..

    Big surprise another hamstring injury.

    Sigh… Conditioning is not a factor in these injuries. These are some of the best conditioned athletes in the world.

    If you look at other teams around the league, everyone is dealing with a ton of hamstring injuries. It happens. Hayward’s really worries me, though.

    OK packers training staff, for the fourth year in a row… I would like to tell you about stretching… its what professional athletes do before they compete… google it.

    They do dynamic stretching. Will pull muscles every time.

    GREAT THAT HE IS BACK. NOW THE GAME CAN GO ON.

    I think the training staff/medical know what they are doing, Now whether they can hold each players hand and make them stretch out before practice/game that is another story.

    The hamstring injuries can be due to multiple factors.
    1.) Hydration. 2.) Stretching. 3.) Range of motion while weight resistance training. 4.) Warming up stretching and warming down stretching.

    And last, but not least, The Playing Surfaces these guys play on.
    Yes, the artificial turf allows more traction resulting in more torque on the muscles, tendons and joints.

    I am going with the Hydration and Turf as the two biggest causes, but that is just from experience.

    I commend Burnett for not throwing his “safety-mates”(I will refrain from calling them NFL players simply because they are not worthy) under the bus but everything ’bout Jennings and McMillan is terrible: skillset,instincts,football IQ,etc..The organization should bring in safeties who know Capers’ system now before the play from this position costs them any more games!

    Capers whole D is instincts driven. What was missing is leadership. They got OTJ training against omne of the best OC’ in the Bizz ! TY Tyler !

    As Vic would say, these guys are bigger, stronger and faster…pushing one’s body to the limit will cause more pulls. I personally think it’s worth inquiring about PED’s which are under-evaluated in the NFL and push bodies unnaturally. I also agree that blaming the conditioning staff is ignorant. This is a league-wide problem.

    So I know this is unrelated to the post above, but I was wondering what you guys thought of this. What happened to the Packers screen game? That used to be a staple of the past Green Bay teams and the past 2 seasons and this game against San Fran, you hardly ever saw any screens to the RB. They do a lot of those stupid WR screens but they’re not really screens just quick throws at the line of scrimmage. Eddie Lacy seems like he could be a great RB-screen guy and I’d love to see them do that more. At the same time it would loosen up the O-Line and take some pressure off in blitz/heavy rush situations. Just something I’ve noticed and would like to hear what some of you think about this.

    I’m curious if they follow an aggressive eccentric strength flexibility program- several studies have shown a dramatic decrease in the rate of hamstring injuries. I doubt static stretching has an impact and in fact may contribute to the problem. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23269328

    Oh I miss Collins and c wood.. Burnett closest to them.. McMillan and Jennings suck

    He was never going to play. Smoke and mirrors by MacCarthy. Would not be shocked to see Hayward miss the entire season. When I hear 4 weeks, that sounds like a wind and prayer for this team.

    I think all these injuries simply stem from the players were drafting being smallish in size, slow and not able to take the punishment of the NFL. These guys were never prominent players in college ball. I bet many of them were injury prone.
