GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers running back Cedric Benson is sure of one thing: He's going to play again this season.
Benson suffered a Lisfranc foot sprain in Week 5 and was placed on injured reserve. However, Green Bay took advantage of the NFL's new rule that allows each team to designate one injured-reserve player for return. That rule keeps Benson from practicing for six weeks and from playing in a game for eight weeks, but the first of those two deadlines expires next week.
"I think we're still a little bit out from practicing, from putting on a cleat and pounding on it like that," Benson said Friday at his locker. "I think we're still a couple of weeks away from that, but very close, very close.
"The way the doctor puts it to me all the time is, regardless of anything, whether you could play tomorrow, you've still got three weeks where you can't play (in a game)."
Even if Benson had recovered by this point, he'd be ineligible t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Packers RB Cedric Benson is aiming to return to the team around December 16, according to Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin.
“Cedric had the opportunity to have some testing done (recently) and everything’s positive. His rehab has picked up,” said head coach Mike McCarthy. “We’ll see where we are next week. We don’t have a startup date exactly when he’s going to be ready...
DOESN'T PACK IT IN
Aaron Rodgers isn't a fan of how 60 Minutes portrayed him in a profile piece last week, but a producer says that shows how the Packers QB "tends to be overly sensitive."
Apparently "60 Minutes" isn't going to sit back and let Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers take shots at it without a response.After Rodgers told the Detroit media in a conference call on Wednesday that his feature story on "60 Minutes" was "cut for their purposes, their agenda," the CBS news magazine fired back at the NFL's Most Valuable...
Ahhhs and boos.
Those are the two distinct and opposite reactions the home crowd rains down on the same missed opportunity. Popular Green Bay Packers named Jennings, Jordy and James hear the former.
The latter may seem reserved solely for embattled tight end Jermichael Finley when he does the same thing . . . drop the rock.
I first noticed the hostility toward Finley...
Injured running back Cedric Benson is eligible to return to practice next week, but that seems unlikely. Plus, much more from a busy Friday at Lambeau Field.
The Green Bay Packers are sticking with struggling kicker Mason Crosby.
Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters after the Packers' 24-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday that the team won't ''blink'' in its commitment to Crosby.
Crosby has missed seven of the 18 field goals he's attempted so far this season. His 61 percent accuracy rate is second...
We tried to warn Wisconsin media types last week that BC was about to dominate their asses on salacious sports/entertainment news. Then we broke the news that Ryan Braun was engaged to Larisa Fraser. A few outlets blew us off as just being some annoying, disgraceful blog that investigates stupid athlete relationship stories for pageviews.
Then, on Monday, we took two screencaps...
Healthy and on his game, cornerback Tramon Williams will square off against wide receiver Calvin Johnson on Sunday. "Everyone around the league knows Calvin is one of the best in the game," Williams said.
Green Bay Packers (6-3) at Detroit Lions (4-5)
I don’t think it’s possible to talk about the Packers without first talking about how bad their injury situation has gotten. Already missing stud middle linebacker Desmond Bishop and replacement DJ Smith for the season, the Packers have also put starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga and starting rush linebacker Nick Perry on injured...
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams is apparently not very original. Earlier this week, Williams dubbed himself “Optimus Prime” in anticipation of his upcoming matchup against Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, a.k.a. Megatron. That sounds awfully familiar.
A few weeks ago, Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman changed his Twitter name to Optimus Prime for...
Week 11 is here, and so are we with another round of sleepers for your Week 11 fantasy football lineups.
You still have plenty of time to set your rosters for Sunday. Take a few minutes and see if any of these guys are available.
James Starks, Green Bay Packers
In the Packers last game, Starks was handed the ball more times than starter Alex Green and is now reportedly the Packers’...
The Detroit Lions have watched Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers rise to league stardom on the field -- and off the field, with the endless "Discount Double Check" commercials. Although they have respect for their NFC counterparts, as one Lions defender stated, "there's no love lost between the two of us."
