Abbrederis, Linsley evaluated for knee, shoulder injuries

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 1, 2014 – 11:10 am

140801-abbrederis-300GREEN BAY–Rookie Jared Abbrederis and Corey Linsley are being evaluated for knee and shoulder injuries respectively.

“Jared has a knee and Corey has a shoulder,” Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said following Friday morning’s practice.

The media’s particular concern was for Abbrederis.

“I haven’t talked to the medical staff. Right now he has a knee. He completed practice yesterday. I’ll have more information later,” McCarthy added.

Rookie tight end Colt Lyerla enjoyed his best practice of training camp. He caught two short touchdown passes in red-zone and goal-line drills respectively.

When asked if missing most of last season has left Lyerla to start slowly, McCarthy said: “I’d say yes. I think that’s fair. He’s been away from it for a while. He’s a young guy that needs reps.”

Packers.com will provide a full practice report following locker room interviews.

    I like that MM is not closing the door on Lyerla so fast maybe it is what he needs to get back in form. Crosses fingers legs and what ever else it takes to help this young man succeed.

    I hope they get Lyerla more reps then. I would hate to see him end up somewhere else and turn out to be a beast at the TE position.

    “The media’s particular concern was for Abbrederis.” Why, because we have so many extra centers laying around, but not enough WRs???

    Bridge building to the practice squad or IR?? It wouldn’t surprise me.

    Because Abbrederis is a Wisconsin guy and Linsley isn’t.

    I never understood what the infatuation was with Lyerla. I’ve looked past the off field issues as a player I don’t even think it’s close as far as Quarless, Bostick emergence and of course Rodgers now in the mix.

    He may not be better than the three you mentioned but, while being more of a project right now, I think he’s got way more up side than Stoneburner and Taylor. Despite the fact the latter has been a good special teams player.

    Not good news for Abbrederis. Before the season starts, we already have injuries?
    It’s good news Colt is starting to work out. You never know, he may make the tteam because he is such an exceptional athletre, if not a finesse football player yet. But since Abbredaris is hurt, the Pack just brought in another wide receiver, right?
    Lindsay’s injury is bad as I think he was automatically Tretter’s backup. And Janis???? That’s a total mystery, it sure ain’t the flue, otherwise he’d be OK now.

    Love to hear about Colt getting some TD grabs. Proves he’s a threat in the end zone. Get him more reps coach!!!

    You can tell who are Packer fans that are actually from WI when you read these comments. Anyone from Wisconsin loves Abbrederis, His jersey is one of the best selling right now.

    Good to hear Lyerla had a good practice. Hopefully, he progresses in the coming weeks. Keep improving Colt!

    For all you whining why more concern was for Abbrederis it’s because his injury appears to be the more serious!

    Abbrederis torn ACL, out for the year

  14. By WCPackfan on Aug 1, 2014 | Reply

    Some fans concern themselves more with injuries that are detrimental to the TEAM as opposed to the individual player. If Linsley was in line to be the back up center to Tretter, that would make his injury more serious. The Packers, last I checked, have a couple receivers lying around.

    While I am concerned for Abby and his injury there is a upside to it..he will be able to heal and grow with the team for a year while hiding on the IR but Linsley is really heart breaking IMO he could have been the starting center with more playing time and we need a tough guy in the middle to protect Aaron…Now we got to put all the cards on Tretter to seal that line up.

    If I’m not mistaken, Barclay has experience at center as does Gerhart. At this point I’d put more faith in Barclay just because he has more overall game day experience at this level.

    I hope we can get healthy and have a great year.

    It’s because his injury is suspected to be much more serious – torn ACL?

    Here we go again picking in jured players.

    any official news on Abbrederis yet?

  21. By WCPackfan on Aug 2, 2014 | Reply

    Yep, you got it Al!! TT just got his contract extended because of his knack for drafting injured players. You know what’s amazing? How Abbrederis and Linsley both managed to get through a week of camp with a torn ACL and a bad shoulder respectively. Unfortunately poo happens. Sorry just trying to clean it up a bit.

    Janis has the shingles which can be contagious. If any player touches Janis’ shingles, they can get “chicken pops”, as my five year old used to say. That is, if they never had chickenpox, Abbrederis seems to have a torn acl, goodbye season.

    Jared’s injury is devastating, for him and us, the fans. As a Wisconsin Badger alumni, life long Packer fan and a Packer shareholder, I am very disappointed I will not get to see Jared play this year. I am hopeful he will recover successfully from his ACL tear, complete rehabilitation in the fall and off-season, and come back stronger than ever in 2015. Best of luck, Jared Abbredaris and Corey Linsley, get well soon guys, and return to the Green and Gold as soon as you can. We need you. GO Pack GO!
