News now! Brandon Bostick back in a ‘couple of weeks’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 18, 2014 – 1:57 pm

140818-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY–Coach Mike McCarthy delivered good news at his post-practice press conference on Monday. Tight end Brandon Bostick’s lower leg injury is not season ending.

“He’s going to be a couple of weeks,” McCarthy said, adding that surgery is not necessary.

McCarthy defended the play of tackle Derek Sherrod.

“We have two more weeks to get ready. Derek Sherrod did a lot of good things. He had a couple of plays he’d like to have back. We’re progressing nicely there,” McCarthy said.

The Packers are in Week 3 of the preseason, which is traditionally a game in which starters play the longest and teams game plan as they would in a regular-season week.

“I don’t think it’s as big an emphasis for us this year because of how early we went to an in-season schedule,” McCarthy said.

The Packers head coach said Monday’s practice “was our best tempo of the year.”

Rookie Jayrone Elliott registered three sacks in Saturday’s game in St. Louis.

“Young man that’s taken advantage of every opportunity he’s been given,” McCarthy said.

Packers.com has provided a full practice report following locker room interviews.

    Great story if Elliot comes out of nowhere to be a difference maker. Another good job by Packer scouts. Congrats Elliot. You made it look easy and it ain’t.

    It was just for 3 games including the playoffs, PK. He was put on IR after that Dallas game. I don’t think he’s injury-prone.

    Great news on Brandon’s leg. He is going to be such a big part of this high powered offense. He can stretch the seem and open things up underneath for Eddie, Randall and company.
    Go Pack Go!!

    Speaking of injury prone, any opinions on Don Barclay? Think he’s gone from the pack?

    #1 key—#52 has to stay healthy n Dr. Peppers has to produce for the millions he is being paid!!!

    Bostick gives the Packers a TE that can stretch the middle of the field. The key for us on offense is establish the run and protect Rogers. I am excited about our young receivers. Adams and Jeff Janis will contribute. As for the defense Stay healthy. The defensive line is very disruptive and athletic. Peppers still looks like an athletic freak on the field. Outside linebacker has good depth. Sam Barrington reminds me of Bishop with his physical play. Brad Jones has looked good. Davon House is a player to watch out for. Our safety position is loaded. This very well could be one of our most talented teams in years.
