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.

Hayward out, Bush questionable, Mulumba probable for Sunday

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 11, 2013 – 3:04 pm

On the final injury report for the week, Packers CB Casey Hayward ()hamstring) was ruled out for the fifth straight game, though he did practice on a limited basis on Friday and might be able to return full-time next week.

“Casey is further ahead this week than he was last week, but he’s not ready to go,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’ll do the testing process Monday or Tuesday like we normally do, and we’ll see where he is as we prepare for Wednesday’s practice.”

Also on the injury report, CB Jarrett Bush (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the game, while OLB Andy Mulumba (ankle) returned to practice on a limited basis after missing Wednesday’s and Thursday’s workouts and is probable. ILB Sam Barrington (hip) was added to the report and missed Friday’s practice, but he is also probable, as is DE Ryan Pickett (hand).

WR Boykin ruled out for Packers

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 11, 2013 – 11:36 am

WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday night’s game on the final injury report released by the Packers on Friday. The only other player listed as out is DE Jerel Worthy (knee), who has already been reported as done for the season.

Everyone else on the Packers’ injury report is probable and expected to play. That list includes WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson, TE Jermichael Finley, RBs Alex Green and James Starks, and LBs Clay Matthews and Dezman Moses.

The 49ers’ injury report lists everybody as probable. Click here for the full injury report.

Defensive line could be thin on Sunday

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 5, 2012 – 5:01 pm

With DE C.J. Wilson still out with a knee injury and DE Mike Neal added to the injury report on Wednesday with a shoulder injury, the Packers’ defensive line could be a bit thin come Sunday against the Lions.

Mike McCarthy said he didn’t have a lot of information on Neal’s shoulder, but he didn’t “feel real good about what the medical staff told” him about Neal. That would indicate Neal’s chances of playing this week are slim, and if Wilson remains out, that would leave the Packers with only four healthy defensive linemen — B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett and rookies Jerel Worthy and Mike Daniels.

In other injury news, it sounds like rookie Don Barclay could get his first NFL start at right tackle in place of T.J. Lang, whose injured ankle is “not progressing the way he’d like,” according to McCarthy. Lang sat out practice on Wednesday.

WR Jordy Nelson also sat out practice, as did LB Clay Matthews. Both have hamstring injuries, and McCarthy said he didn’t know if either would be ready to play this week and didn’t get into specifics. “I’m about timelined out,” McCarthy said.

Veteran C Jeff Saturday was also added to the injury report with a foot injury. He was limited in practice, but McCarthy said he expects Saturday to be able to play against the Lions.

In summary, the injury list doesn’t seem to be getting any shorter for the Packers, but they’re so used to dealing with it by now that the typical response is a shrug of the shoulders.

“Self-pity is a waste of time, a waste of emotion,” McCarthy said. “I think it’s part of the National Football League. I don’t think we’ve created any secret formula how we go about it, we just stay focused on what’s in front of us, and you have to, especially these division games. They’re so important.”

The positive injury news came in the form of Charles Woodson’s return to practice from a broken collarbone. He was listed as limited on the injury report, the first time he has participated in practice since the injury, which occurred on Oct. 21 at St. Louis.

The Packers will practice in pads on Thursday, and McCarthy didn’t say whether Woodson would go in pads, which would be the next step to returning to game action.

“He’s getting close,” McCarthy said. “It’s a good start.”

Long injury list means shorter practices this week

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 24, 2012 – 2:54 pm

The Packers’ injury list is rather long this week, and as a result Mike McCarthy cut practice short on Wednesday and plans to do so again on Thursday.

New to the injury report this week are WR Donald Driver (neck), FB John Kuhn (hamstring), G T.J. Lang (elbow/wrist), WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring) and C Jeff Saturday (neck). Driver and Kuhn sat out practice while the other three were limited. McCarthy said he didn’t know if any of these players were in danger of missing Sunday’s game, but he didn’t indicate any of the injuries was serious. Driver and Saturday both spoke to groups of reporters at their lockers and said they’ll be fine.

Also missing practice were WR Greg Jennings (groin), LB Nick Perry (knee), NT B.J. Raji (ankle) and CB Sam Shields (ankle). Jennings is in the process of getting a second opinion on his injury, which has forced him to miss the last three games. Raji is scheduled to do rehab work and perhaps practice on a limited basis on Thursday. McCarthy said Perry and Shields are not ready to test their injuries on Thursday and will be re-evaluated Friday, an indication they’ll both miss another game.

TE Jermichael Finley (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice, but he has played the last two weeks while listed on the injury report. QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) was a full participant in practice.

Finley, Raji not practicing on Wednesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 10, 2012 – 12:12 pm

In what amounts to no surprise at all, TE Jermichael Finley (shoulder) and DL B.J. Raji (ankle) were not practicing in the portion of Wednesday’s workout open to the media. On Monday, Mike McCarthy gave both “a chance” to play this Sunday.

Also not practicing were RB Cedric Benson (foot), who is out for at least several weeks, WR Greg Jennings (groin) and S Sean Richardson (hamstring).

McCarthy will address the media following practice, and the first official injury report of the week will be released.

Hawk thought refs might tell Packers they won

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 26, 2012 – 8:41 pm

Here’s a little humor to add to the aftermath of the controversial ending to Monday night’s game in Seattle.

Following the replay review and decision to uphold the touchdown on the final play, the Packers left the field. Several minutes later, the officials came into Green Bay’s locker room to inform the team that at least 11 players needed to return to the field so Seattle could kick the extra point.

The Packers were so convinced they’d won the game that seeing the officials drop in for a visit actually got their hopes up, momentarily.

“When I saw the refs come back in, I thought they were going to tell us we won the game, honestly,” linebacker A.J. Hawk said on Wednesday. “I think a lot of people thought that. But they were saying we had to get back on the field.

“That was obviously a weird moment for everybody.  I think it was pretty tense for those refs. They didn’t feel super-comfortable in there. But who knows, 30 years from now hopefully it’s a decent story to tell, but for now we’re 1-2 and we need to find a way to change that.”

The Packers will try to change that with a relatively healthy team. On Wednesday, there were just two additions to the injury report — RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) and DE Jerel Worthy (shoulder) — but both players were still limited participants in practice. The other limited participants were CB Davon House (shoulder), WR Greg Jennings (groin) and LB Jamari Lattimore (ankle).

The only player on the active roster who is listed as “did not participate” was S Sean Richardson (hamstring). Both TE Tom Crabtree (shoulder) and RB James Starks (toe) are listed on the report but were full participants.
