TE Jermichael Finley distanced himself from agent Blake Baratz’s Twitter comments on Thursday after Baratz questioned QB Aaron Rodgers’ leadership of the Packers.
“He has 30 clients around the league,” Finley said. “He has his own opinion.”
Finley added that everything is fine between him and Rodgers over the matter. Rodgers brushed everything off, likening Baratz’s disparaging comments to something a guy at the burger restaurant “Five Guys” might say about him if he thinks he’s a bad tipper.
“He’s the leader of this team,” Finley said of Rodgers. “He’s the man, and I respect him as a player. Outside the locker room, I’m a fan of Aaron Rodgers. We’re all good.”
As for the rest of the team, the injury report is rather extensive, but the only significant concern may be with WR Greg Jennings (groin), who missed practice. Jennings has by no means been ruled out of Monday’s game, however.
Also missing practice were TE Tom Crabtree (shoulder) and LB Jamari Lattimore (ankle). Five players were limited participants in the non-padded practice: WR Randall Cobb (hamstring), CB Davon House (shoulder), G Josh Sitton (knee), RB James Starks (toe) and DE C.J. Wilson (groin). Both LB Nick Perry (wrist) and Terrell Manning (concussion) were also listed on the injury report, but they were full participants in practice. Mike McCarthy said he expects Cobb and Sitton to be fine by Monday, and he has no doubts Perry will play.
