Three Packers awarded game balls from Miami

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 13, 2014 – 5:54 pm

GREEN BAY — The Packers coaching staff awarded three game balls from the 27-24 victory over Miami on Sunday.

On offense, the game ball went to right guard T.J. Lang, who recovered a third-down fumble by QB Aaron Rodgers on the game-winning drive, which kept the Packers alive for what turned out to be a fourth-down conversion from Rodgers to Jordy Nelson en route to the game-winning TD.

On defense, rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the recipient. The press box statistics credited Clinton-Dix with a team-high seven tackles, all solo, including one for loss and one pass broken up. Mike McCarthy said on Monday he felt Clinton-Dix played his best game to date.

On special teams, the game ball went to Micah Hyde, who had two punt returns totaling 41 yards. His 24-yard return in the second quarter came when he escaped a mass of humanity in the middle of the field, and his 17-yarder in the fourth quarter put the offense on the 40-yard line to start the final drive.

Shields questionable, Hyde probable, Jolly doubtful for Sunday

Posted by Mike Spofford on November 22, 2013 – 2:28 pm

CB Sam Shields

CB Sam Shields

Packers CB Sam Shields missed his third straight practice on Friday with a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game.

Shields was a last-minute scratch prior to last week’s game and his recovery has been slow, but Head Coach Mike McCarthy indicated the team will wait all the way up until Sunday morning to see if Shields can play.

“It’s been up and down,” McCarthy said after Friday’s practice. “We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got 48 hours is how we’re looking at it. We’ll obviously give Sam every chance to get ready.”

Another cornerback, rookie Micah Hyde, missed his second straight day of practice on Friday with a groin injury but is listed as probable. Hyde was the full-time nickel back last week against the Giants with Shields out and Davon House moving into the starting lineup opposite Tramon Williams.

“I feel pretty confident he’s going to go,” McCarthy said. “This is something that’s been bothering him throughout the week, so we were smart with him yesterday and today.”

Up front on defense, DE Johnny Jolly is doubtful with a groin injury after sitting out practice all week. Jolly has been a key run defender for the Packers this season, and his absence could be troubling against Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, particularly with DE Ryan Pickett playing at less than full strength with a knee injury.

McCarthy suggested that Jolly’s doubtful status is due in part to the quick turnaround coming next week, with the Packers traveling to Detroit to play the Lions on Thanksgiving.

On the offensive side, RT Don Barclay will miss his second straight game, with Marshall Newhouse starting in his place.

Four game balls awarded vs. Cleveland

The Packers coaching staff awarded four game balls to players for their individual performances in the 31-13 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

On offense, the honor went to WR Jarrett Boykin, who led the team with eight catches for 103 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown. It was Boykin’s first career 100-yard game and first career TD, all coming in his first career start.

On defense, game balls were awarded to CB Davon House and LB Jamari Lattimore. House snagged his first career interception on an early fourth-and-1, and later in the game, he broke up two passes around the goal line, one on a fourth-and-15 deep throw intended for WR Josh Gordon.

Lattimore led the defense with nine solo tackles and 12 total tackles, including his first pro sack and a deflected pass.

On special teams, CB Micah Hyde received recognition for his 18-yard punt return early in the game to help set up Green Bay’s first touchdown, and for two tackles on the coverage units, including one of Browns KR Travis Benjamin to prevent a TD at the end of a long return.
