News now! JC Tretter lost with ‘significant knee injury’

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 24, 2014 – 2:07 pm

140824-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY–The Packers have lost center JC Tretter for “multiple weeks,” Coach Mike McCarthy said on Sunday. Tretter sustained a “significant knee injury” on the first series of Friday’s game against Oakland, but returned to the game and played 49 snaps. He is obviously lost for the regular season opener in Seattle.

Also, McCarthy confirmed nose tackle B.J. Raji suffered a major arm injury in Friday’s game and is lost to the team. McCarthy said Raji is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right arm.

“B.J. Raji was in great shape and had the best camp of his career. Injuries are a part of the game. It’s unfortunate but it will not stop us,” McCarthy said.

Linebacker  Brad Jones sustained a quad injury, did not practice on Sunday and won’t play against Kansas City on Thursday in the preseason finale.

Rookie fifth-round draft pick Corey Linsley would seem to be Tretter’s repalcement. Josh Boyd steps in for Raji.
