Players added to injury report, while others may return to practice on Tuesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 25, 2013 – 5:09 pm

The Packers released the first injury report for the week on Monday, and some new players are on it while some others may be getting back on the practice field this week.

Practice designations are an approximation because the team didn’t actually practice, but had there been a workout, TE Brandon Bostick (concussion), LB Jamari Lattimore (quad) and G Josh Sitton (back) would all have sat out. Also listed as “did not participate,” along with QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone), were RB Johnathan Franklin (concussion) and DE C.J. Wilson (ankle) whose injuries were reported after the game. Wilson’s was first reported as a knee injury but is now an ankle.

Also new to the injury report is T Marshall Newhouse (shoulder) though he was listed as “limited” as a practice approximation.

The good news is some of the players who have been out for the Packers were also listed as limited, meaning there’s a chance they could return to the practice field for real on Tuesday.

T/G Don Barclay (knee), DE Johnny Jolly (groin), LB Nick Perry (foot/ankle) and CB Sam Shields (hamstring), who all missed Sunday’s game vs. Minnesota, are in that category.

    They need all these “possibles” to play against Detroit. Flynn will get it done.

    If we got these possibles back, that would bode well for our stretch run. If we can have a full linebacking corps, a full d-line corps, and Shields back in the line up for the remaining games, we should hit our stride defensively by Dallas.

    The only “possible” we need back is Rodgers….Without him this tub has too many holes….As far as “stretch runs” are concerned, the only ones we’re going to have this year if we don’t beat the Lions is if we stretch before running to the fridge because we need to get another beer to get us through this stretch of awful football.

    A new Packer Rule: We will NEVER put ANY injured player back on the Active Roster unless he is COMPLETELY healed.

    I cant believe McCarthy hasn’t announced Flynn as the starter yet. If he goes back to Tolzien as the starter then he needs to pack his bags. Flynn was the obvious choice the minute he was released by the Raiders and if we had gone with him immediately we would have possibly won the game with the Eagles and definitely won the Giants game. Announce Flynn and quit with the damn drama MM!!”Idiot

    Reading this, other Packers blogs, and Ask Vic, one would believe that the Packers are the only team in the NFL to be hurt by injuries. Not true Cheeseheads. Some teams lost their starting QB for the year early on. Some lost 2 or 3 starting OL for the year BEFORE the season even started. On lost 3 starting OL, that’s 60% of the most important group, for several games and still won. Some teams lost #1, #2 and #3 QB. I could go on. Keep using injuries as an excuse in your dream world. Bad sign for Packers fans with the tie vs MIN, at home no less. Champions win tight ames vs inferior teams.

    Right on, Mr. Reality! We have watched A great many Packer games over the years to know when a team does not deserve the honor of listing themselves among Packer greats.

    Shoulda woulda coulda. I am glad McCarthy is the coach and not a moron like yourself.

    Dear Mr. Reality: The Packers ranked 32nd last year in AGL (Adjusted Games Lost @ 108). This is a weighted number that comes out at the end of every season that takes into account not only games lost by starters, but key special teams players and back ups. By contrast, teams like the 49ers, Bears ranked in the top 3 with less than 20 games lost. In 2011, GB ranked 19th. Of course this year’s numbers aren’t in, but I’m sure when all is said and done, GB will be near the bottom again. Injuries aren’t excuses, but denying they have a greater impact on some teams is also wrong.

    … MM …. Please no Scott Thorzine . You’ve given a victory to the Lions should he play . How many picks will he throw? Matt flynn would have
    been better from the beginning. You probably would be in first place right Now . Thorzine dose not even belong on the field. I don’t care how strong of an arm he has. He was not even drafted and what does that say.
    Let him stay in the locker room and eat turkey !!!

    P.s. It’s a nobrainer …. Matt Starts … end of story.

    @ john- Injuries HAPPEN! Thats why you have back-ups. Did you not watch the BRONCOS/PATRIOT game? PATRIOTS DOWN BY 24 AT HALF!!! But they came back and WON the game in overtime. DOING ALL OF THIS WITH 5 STARTERS OUT AND STARTING 5 ROOKIES! Now thats what you call ‘NEXT MAN UP’!!!

    We need Shields back to cover Calvin Johnson, last time we beat them, they didn’t have Calvin Johnson, we need Shields back now.

    Of course MM knows who is going to start but why show your hand until you have to. Even if Rodgers was going to start, why broadcast it early? Some of you guys are a special kind of stupid.

    Why announce it if you don’t have too dummy, a little slight of hand never hurts!

    Even if by some miracle we beat the undisciplined Lions, the lowly Falcons, and the Interception Machine, Tony Romo, and sneak into the play-offs, what evidence is there that we will NOT go one and done again in the play-offs?

    I think the league has figured out Dom Capers. 3 yrs ago we were #1 on defense…then we give up the most yards in NFL history?? We have terrible tackling skills and can anyone tell me when we actually caused a fumble? I love Hawk, Matthews & Hayward but something’s gotta give.

    MM is not declaring Flynn the QB just to play mind games w the Lions Flynn will be the man Thursday we all know this.

    David, I’ll give u evidence Arron Rodgers the best QB in the league and Eddie Lacy when these two are healthy and playing and Cobb back this is the best offense in the NFL

    The reason that they will have a shot to win in the playoffs is Aaron Rodgers. If the Pack has him they can beat anyone. Ted Thompson obviously took a chance this year by not having a quality backup for him. It came back to bite him. I am happy to have Flynn back as his backup. Scott Tolzien is a good 3rd string development guy to have as well. Things will get better when we get the 2011 NFL MVP back.

    Hopefully Barclay will be back, Newhouse is limited even when he is not injured

    Okay, so I am not a TT fan. I really dont think his drafts of other player dealings are top notch. He is good, but I think there are better. Thus we are not super bowl teams the last few years. You guys are saying, other teams with injuries are winning wih their back ups. we are not. On the other hand, we are playing hard, entertaining and giving hope with the talents we have, a few greats, some very goods, and others to fill the roster. We disagree on the whole D and the O lineand on their coaches. I think they stink, but others say they are ok. Who is right? On top of this the pack is still out their playing, giving us our pleasures to the best of their abilities at this time. So go pack.

    they definitely can’t put rodgers back in till newhouse is gone ….damn that guy is bad. talk about rodgers taking some hits. hope bark is back this week

    Vic and some of these fans say that a healthy cap is the key to longevity. I understand healthy caps. TT CLEARLY is cheap. There is a distinct difference between frugal and cheap. Not having a quatified experienced PLAYABLE backup with a system on offense that is completely on the QB is CHEAP. Wallace in his prime could not win football games. NO training camp – inexcuseable. NO experienced depth on back end on Defense (ie Woodson). CHEAP! Woodson could still play and more importantly knows how to get others to play. Not drafting a bonafide MLB in draft ro replace HAWK and then not adding depth to the LB core. CHEAP. Packers rank in the bottom five in salary and YEAR after YEAR have cap space. Are we all excited about the ammount of cap space. These holes were clear and continue to be clear. TT admitted to the backup QB what about bowling ball hawk. The interstate by my house does not get runover as much as he does. Injuries happen and not being prepared for them is not doing your job TT. This franchise is far from broke and your disservice to the fan base attending games is shameful.

    Eric, I realize that these are both just opinions, but I would have to say that Peyton, Drew and Tom (perhaps Russell as well) are arguably as good as Rodgers and have had more time in the league to prove it. Also, there are at least 6 running backs as good or better than Lacy (yes, he is still learning and has lots of potential), and after that, the talent on Offence is thin, very thin. The only play-maker we have on defence is Matthews. I should also point out that the team has only 3 or 4 interceptions all year! There are at least a dozen players in the league who have more than the Packers’ team!
    We simply don’t have the talent even when everybody is healthy. End of story.

    @ packers50 Right on the money!!! TT isn’t as great as a lot of these packer fans think he is. I wouldn’t doubt it if TT has Dementia!!

    David, you are right on the money! I talked to a retired Doctor friend of mine this morning and asked him, “How long does it take to heal a broken collar bone? He replied, “It could take months. He [AR] should not play again this season.” Another end of story.

    Seems like everyone’s close to agreement. Now if we could get the team President to move…(fat chance). I think the closest they will come to change is making Capers the goat…still doesn’t solve the multiple problems.
