Bigby Is Gone Again

Atari Bigby

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby is nothing if not injury-prone. Bigby strained a groin in Sunday’s victory over the New York Giants and has already been ruled out for Sunday’s contest with the Chicago Bears. Obviously Bigby can’t be counted on, so why should anyone care about a guy who’s only been able to […]

Bigby Could Return This Week

Atari Bigby

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby, who’s spent more time standing around on the sideline this season than he has on the field, could return from his latest injury as early as this week. Bigby took part in a limited portion of practice on Thursday and passed a running test before practice, which is the […]

And Here Comes Atari Bigby’s Next Injury Problem

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby has aggravated the hamstring injury that landed him on the physically unable to perform list, which perfectly follows his pattern. By most accounts, Bigby is a decent safety, when he can stay on the field. Unfortunately, he can’t stay on the field very often. In addition to missing the […]

Peprah, Bigby Will Split Snaps

Charlie Peprah will remain the Green Bay Packers starting strong safety, but it appears it’s only a title. Despite playing some outstanding football of late, that apparently isn’t enough to keep Atari Bigby, who saw his first action of the season against the Dallas Cowboys, off the field. Nope. The Packers have come up with […]

Peprah Is The Packers Starting Strong Safety

Green Bay Packers strong safety Atari Bigby saw his first action of the season in the Packers’ last game, but he didn’t return to the starting lineup after his return from the physically unable to perform list. Charlie Peprah, initially an injury replacement for rookie Morgan Burnett, remained in the role. It looks like Peprah […]

Packers Activate Bigby

The Green Bay Packers have activated safety Atari Bigby from the physically unable to perform list. Cornerback Al Harris and running back James Starks were not activated. The team has until Tuesday to either activate them, place them on injured reserve or cut them. The Packers had an open roster spot, so they did not […]

Young And Unproven Players Are Now Part Of Packers’ Success

As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the […]

Packers Getting Healthy

This is not a misnomer. It is not misdirection. It’s not the old switcheroo. The Green Bay Packers are actually getting healthy, and just in time for the Minnesota Vikings, who come to town with their old, washed-up, dick-texting quarterback this weekend. Linebackers Clay Matthews and Brandon Chillar are expected to return to the lineup, […]

Packers Bring Back Anthony Smith

The Green Bay Packers traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for safety Anthony Smith, on Sunday. This will be Smith’s second tour with the Packers. The team signed him as a free agent prior to last season, but he was among the final roster cuts. Smith has started three games for Jacksonville […]

Packers’ Stars May Play Sunday

The Green Bay Packers will be without tight end Jermichael Finley on Sunday, but it looks like their two biggest injured stars have a shot at playing. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion on the final play of the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit, will miss some practice time this week, but hasn’t been […]

Packers Lackluster In Loss To Redskins, Injuries Continue To Mount

Donald Lee

The Green Bay Packers did everything they could to keep the Washington Redskins in the football game for four quarters. In the end, the Redskins finally took advantage to win 16-13 on a Graham Gano 33-yard field goal in overtime. After a strong first half, the Packers offense failed to do anything of note in […]

Injury Replacements: Who To Be Worried About

If you haven’t heard that the Green Bay Packers have a shitload of injuries, well… then get the hell out of here. The Packers will be down four week one starters against the Redskins this week — five, if you count linebacker Brandon Chillar and six, if you count cornerback Sam Shields. Those players are […]

Nick Collins “Not Optimistic” About Knee

Add safety Nick Collins to the Green Bay Packers growing list of injury concerns. Collins missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee strain and said he’s not optimistic about playing against the Redskins on Sunday, according to Kareem Copeland. “I’m doing the best I can to get ready for Sunday,” Collins said. “Just trying to strengthen […]

Burnett Out For The Season

Green Bay Packers starting safety Morgan Burnett will be lost for the year with a torn ACL. Burnett suffered the injury early in the Packers victory over the Detroit Lions, on Sunday, and played around 10 snaps before coming off the field. He was replaced by Derrick Martin. The injury is a blow to a […]

Packers Work Out Returner, Safety

Ted Thompson may not be done tweaking the Green Bay Packers roster yet. The Packers brought in former Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith and former Jacksonville safety Gerald Alexander for workouts, Tuesday. Smith was Pro Bowl return man for the Buccaneers in 2008 and has career averages of 28.3 yards on kickoff returns and 12.1 […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

Training Camp Observations, August 3, Evening, Full Pads

The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]

Atari Bigby May Hold Out

Green Bay Packers’ safety Atari Bigby, one of the team’s three unsigned restricted free agents, appears to be the most likely to hold out, according to Greg Bedard, via Cheesehead TV. Two sources said he had designs on staying away to get a contract extension, perhaps even into training camp after signing his tender. But […]

Charlie Peprah Back In Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers finally made their big offseason free agent signing by bringing in safety Charlie Peprah, who was with the team from 2006-08 before spending last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Peprah notched one tackle in two games for Atlanta in 2009. He was released by the Packers following training camp, last season. […]
