A lot of people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have a hole to fill on their defensive line, with defensive end Cullen Jenkins expected to depart in free agency and Johnny Jolly making stupid decisions somewhere in Houston. Football Outsiders named defensive line as the team’s biggest post-draft hole and several experts suggested it was the Packers’ biggest need going into the draft.
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
Fresh off setting a career high in sacks after a two-sack performance against San Francisco, Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins got some bad news — the calf strain he suffered on Sunday will keep him out of this week’s game with Detroit and possibly longer. “It may be a couple weeks. When you’re […]
No joke. The Green Bay Packers have lost their 10th player to season-ending injured reserve. Today, the team added linebacker Brad Jones to the list. Jones suffered a significant shoulder injury in Sunday’s win over Minnesota. During today’s press conference, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jones would need surgery. “Brad Jones has a significant shoulder […]
Although the Green Bay Packers made it out of their game with the Minnesota Vikings almost injury free, the team still got some bad news on Monday regarding injuries. Both linebacker Brady Poppinga and defensive end Mike Neal will be joining seven teammates on injured reserve. Poppinga, who hurt himself in the loss to Miami, […]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to […]
It looks increasingly likely the Green Bay Packers will be without key contributors at two of their thinnest positions this weekend, as cornerback Brandon Underwood and defensive end Mike Neal are listed as questionable on the injury report. Underwood, who will be the Packers nickel or dime back when he returns, has been out with […]
We all knew it was only a matter of time until Green Bay Packers defensive end Justin Harrell suffered his annual season-ending injury. Somehow, Harrell managed to stay on the field throughout the preseason this year, but Sunday, Harrell had to be helped off with a knee injury. Today came confirmation that Harrell tore his […]
The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]
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 […]
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 […]
Cullen Jenkins has been a pretty solid performer for the Green Bay Packers over the years. He had perhaps his best all-around season for the Packers in 2009 after transitioning full time to defensive end, where he recorded 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and his first career interception. In his previous seasons, when […]
