McCarthy rules out Rodgers, will start Flynn, addresses Sitton comments

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 27, 2013 – 12:43 pm

Head Coach Mike McCarthy officially ruled out QB Aaron Rodgers on the injury report for Thursday’s game in Detroit and declared Matt Flynn the starting QB.

“Matt Flynn will be the starter tomorrow,” McCarthy said following the team’s practice on Wednesday. “He’s taken all the starter reps this week, and he’s ready to go.

“We’re ready. We’ve got a full game plan in.”

As for G Josh Sitton’s disparaging comments about Detroit’s defensive line and coaching staff, which he made on a radio show Tuesday, McCarthy addressed them briefly.

“I’ll say this about Josh Sitton’s comments. They definitely don’t reflect how we go about our business here,” McCarthy said. “It was discussed with the football team.”

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 7, 2013 – 3:00 pm

Game balls

The Packers coaching staff on Monday awarded five games balls to players for their performances in the 22-9 victory over the Lions at Lambeau Field.

On defense, outside linebackers Nick Perry and Mike Neal were the recipients. Perry had the first two-sack game of his career, while Neal added a sack and two other tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

On special teams, kicker Mason Crosby was awarded a game ball for his 5-for-5 effort on field goals. Crosby made kicks from 26, 52, 31, 42 and 45 yards, tying the franchise record for made field goals in a game.

No setbacks so far for Morgan Burnett

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 12, 2013 – 4:52 pm

Packers S Morgan Burnett practiced for the second straight day on Thursday in a limited fashion without any setbacks to his hamstring injury, which kept him out of last week’s opener in San Francisco.

Also, G Josh Sitton (back) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe) returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday’s workout. Thursday’s practice was in pads.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Burnett was able to do more in practice on Thursday than initially expected, but after Burnett suddenly was held out of practice last Friday and had to miss the game, caution is certainly being exercised.

“It’s better than last week,” Burnett said. “It’s improving, it’s getting there. We’re going to see how I feel tomorrow.

“I want to be out there so bad. I’m anxious to get out there and get the season started. But the trainers and guys there, they’re doing their job, so that’s why we have to play it by ear.”

McCarthy said the situations for Sitton and Finley are similar. If their medical exams go well Friday morning and they can practice again, their chances of playing will look even better.

CB Casey Hayward (hamstring) has been ruled out for the second straight week, and CB Jarrett Bush pulled up in practice on Thursday with a hamstring injury and was added to the injury report. Bush was on the report last week with an ankle injury but still played.

LB Nick Perry (neck) was downgraded to a limited participant in practice after going full on Wednesday, when practice was not in pads. McCarthy said Perry’s stinger “flared up” after Wednesday’s practice and his evaluation was ongoing.

Josh Sitton, Jermichael Finley miss practice on Wednesday

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 11, 2013 – 4:54 pm

LG Josh Sitton (back) and TE Jermichael Finley (toe) both missed practice on Wednesday, leaving their status for Sunday’s game against Washington in doubt. Also, S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) returned to practice on a limited basis, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy said it would take the entire week to determine whether or not Burnett can play.

Sitton had his back flare up on him during the long flight to San Francisco, but he played the whole game. The long flight back didn’t help matters, though.

“It’s feeling better than it did Monday and Tuesday, but I don’t know, we’ll see,” Sitton said. “We’ll be able to gauge it more as the week goes on.

“It’s one of those things that comes and goes, and hopefully it’ll go away before Sunday.”

Sitton had a rough second quarter in San Francisco, getting called for three penalties — two holding and one illegal hands to the face — while trying to block All-Pro Justin Smith. Long story short, Sitton wasn’t crazy about the calls.

“You can’t really do anything about the officials,” he said. “I don’t necessarily agree with a couple of the calls, but you can’t do anything about it. Screaming and complaining about it isn’t going to get you anywhere. Old ‘94’ (Smith) out there is a pretty good actor. He likes to throw his hands up in the air a lot, pretend like he’s getting held. Nothing you can do about that.”

If Sitton is unable to play on Sunday, McCarthy said that Marshall Newhouse would be the next lineman in. Newhouse started primarily at tackle the past two years, so one possible lineup would put Newhouse at right tackle and move Don Barclay to Sitton’s left guard spot. Newhouse also could play guard, though he hasn’t done so in a regular-season game in his career.

“Things are kind of open,” Newhouse said. “We’ll be flipping a lot and taking a lot of reps and things are still up in the air as far as that’s concerned. I know the offense well.

“There shouldn’t be any dropoff. I’ve always prepared mentally like I’m a starter, and in 2011 when my number was called, I was ready.”

Finley will be “hard pressed” to practice on Thursday, according to McCarthy, but any decision on his game status would wait until at least Friday.

“I’ve got the mentality that I want to play,” said Finley, acknowledging that the best medicine for his sore toe is rest. “I don’t have it in my mind that I want to sit down Sunday. We have four days until Sunday, so if it’s up to me, I’m going to be out there.”

Jeff Saturday takes one last snap, for the AFC

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 28, 2013 – 10:05 am

Packers C Jeff Saturday, who announced late last week he was retiring after the Pro Bowl, switched sides momentarily in Sunday’s all-star game in Hawaii to take one last snap with his longtime teammate, QB Peyton Manning.

Saturday and Manning played a dozen years together as Indianapolis Colts and went to two Super Bowls together. According to Saturday, Manning orchestrated the switcheroo and tribute snap. Saturday played his final NFL season for the Packers in 2012 while Manning is now with the Denver Broncos.

The NFC, coached by the Packers coaching staff, defeated the AFC, 62-35. The only other Packers player to participate in the game was G Josh Sitton, who was appearing in his first Pro Bowl.
