Ndamukong Suh: I’ll never be friends with a QB, especially Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh spent sometime together at a youth football camp this summer in Oregon.  But that doesn’t mean they’re friends. “Well, I haven’t gotten any calls from him yet,” Rodgers said Wednesday via USA Today. “Not sure if there’s going to be some sort of 

Time for Packers to say goodbye to James Starks

James Starks missed his senior year at the University of Buffalo because of injury and has been a regular on injury lists ever since. This may sound strange, because James Starks broke the 44-game streak.

Matthews expects to play vs. Lions Sunday

Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews's current hamstring woes won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

Matthews back from sore hamstring

It's easy to spot Clay Matthews at Packers practice, with his long blond hair protruding from his helmet and on to his neck and shoulders.

After some doubt, they'll be together again this weekend to face the Detroit...

Packers downplaying 22-year winning streak over Lions

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's the longest winning streak in NFL history.

Crosby notices different kind of change

Mason Crosby may not have made any drastic mechanical or mental changes to his approach to kicking field goals after a season in which he ranked last among NFL kickers with a 63.6 percent conversion rate but there is one change that he made in the offseason that stands out to him. “I do feel like this training camp and this offseason I did a good job of not holding onto much...

Suh likes Aaron Rodgers but says they can't be friends

Ndamukong Suh and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spent some time hanging out together at a football camp in Oregon this summer, and even though Suh indicated that he likes the Green Bay Packers quarterback well enough, the Detroit Lions defensive lineman says there’s no chance the two will ever be friends. And no, […]The post Ndamukong Suh likes Aaron Rodgers but...

Clay Matthews Improved to Full Practice Participant

In what is unquestionably an encouraging sign, Clay Matthews was upgraded to a full participant in practice today.

While this is encouraging, and Matthews has said that he plans to play on Sunday, Mike McCarthy is taking a steady approach to gauge whether Matthews'...
