Found October 16, 2013 on The Pack Mentality:
For all the Packers injuries, it's nice to get some good news on the injury front. Offensive lineman Derek Sherrod returned to practice today on the first day that he was eligible to come of the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Per SB Nation: The big positive news is that Derek Sherrod, who is on the Physically Unable to Perform list, was eligible to practice for the first time today and did so. The team was not in pads today, so he is not ready to play in a game yet, but the fact that he was finally working on the practice field with his teammates is a great sign for a player who went through a horrible injury. The injury referred to was a broken leg that Sherrod suffered during the 2011 season that caused Sherrod to miss all of the 2012 season. It is really great to see him working his way back into the lineup after such a long rehabilitation process. As for other Packers who could have some good news, Casey Hayward, Mike Neal, James Jones and B...

Ravens head coach says Rodgers complaints are hard to understand

Aaron Rodgers was upset by a hit that sidelined his star receiver Randall Cobb. That hit was considered a low blow by Rodgers, but when the media asked head coach John Harbaugh he said Rodgers’ complaints are “pretty hard for me to understand.” Harbaugh noted that Cobb caught the ball over the middle and Elam […]

Green Bay Packers: A good defense AND a run game?

Eddie Lacy (Photo credit: Evan Habeeb/USA TODAY Sports) Before the start of the regular season, there were two things that the Green Bay Packers had to address to verify them as a Super Bowl contender.  They had to find a much needed running game and had to improve a defense that has gotten torched the last few seasons.  Through five games of this NFL season, both areas seem to...

Aaron Rodgers will see an entirely different Browns defense on Sunday

Aaron Rodgers has only faced the Cleveland Browns as a starter one time in his career. That was back on week 7 in 2009. The Packers smashed the Browns 31-3. The win moved Green Bay to 4-2 and sent the Browns to 1-6. Oh, have things changed since then. Let me put that in perspective. Of all the players that checked into the defensive box score four years ago, only...

Jermichael Finley could play WR

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers TE Jermichael Finley could “play a lot” of receiver during Sunday’s game against the Browns. Green Bay placed WR Randall Cobb on injured reserve with the designation to return on Tuesday and there’s also some doubt as to whether or not James Jones will be available in Week 7. Finley is no stranger...

Micah Hyde excited to be full-time punt returner

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The loss of Randall Cobb for at least eight weeks is a significant loss for the Green Bay Packers' offense. On punt returns, however, Cobb's absence might not be felt much, at least based on the glowing praise that coach Mike McCarthy gave rookie Micah Hyde. Hyde had been splitting punt-return duties with Cobb situationally in recent weeks after the Packers...

Mike McCarthy gives history lesson to injury ravaged Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy looked at his team's long list of injuries, many of which are to key players, he knew he needed the right message to share with the rest of the locker room this week. A message that keeps his 43 healthy players focused amidst the absences that are headlined by star outside linebacker Clay Matthews and top receiver Randall...

Green Bay Packers OLB Nick Perry Has Broken Foot

The Green Bay Packers are losing the battle to injuries this year, and another one has surfaced. Outside linebacker Nick Perry has been lost for the foreseeable future as he has been diagnosed with a broken foot.  The only silver lining in this is that medical experts expect Perry to return at some point in the year. But none-the-less, the Packers linebacker group who already is...

Eddie Lacy May Become the Packers MVP

The Packers had this feeling that they had struck gold when they drafted Eddie Lacy this past April. A bruising, power running back with the ability to wear down opposing defenses, Lacy was seen as the answer at a position which had been less than inspiring since Ryan Grant stopped being a 1,000 yard rusher. The hope was that Lacy would be able to add another dimension to the already...

Green Bay Packers: Injuries just keep piling up

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is hit in the knee by Ravens safety Matt Elam (Photo credit: Nick Wass/AP) For the second time is as many weeks, the Green Bay Packers have lost a key part of their team.  Wide receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones were both injured in Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.  At least for me, this season is starting to look like the 2010...

Packers Reportedly to Promote WR Myles White to Active Roster

With the slew of injuries that the Packers had at wide receiver this past week, it is unsurprising that the team is looking for options to fill the team's suddenly thin receiving corps. With Randall Cobb out for a couple of weeks, and James Jones status unceratin for this week, the Packers had Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin as the only healthy receivers on the roster...

Fantasy Football Week 7: The Creeper Report

Nick Foles might have been the Creeper Report’s greatest acquisition of the year. In my 16 team Euro fantasy football league, where I grabbed a bunch of runners and catchers before realizing all the throwers were going fast, I grabbed Michael Vick in the seventh round. With a new coach and an injury history, he was too much of a question mark for my taste. But he had two good games...

Packers’ Randall Cobb out 6-8 weeks

When the Green Bay Packers initially announced Randall Cobb’s leg injury, head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that the wide receiver would miss multiple weeks. A source later clarified that vague figure, telling Tyler Dunne of the Journal Sentinel that Cobb will miss six to eight weeks due to a fractured fibula he suffered during Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens. Cobb...

Multiple TE sets likely outcome of WR losses

The Green Bay Packers almost certainly will have to turn more to a two-tight end offense while receiver Randall Cobb is out for at least eight weeks because of a broken fibula. The Packers on Tuesday placed Cobb on injured reserve-designated for return which means he can’t practice for at least six weeks and can’t play in a game for at least eight weeks. Much of the Packers’...

Cobb to Special IR List; White Gets Promotion

With Randall Cobb now out for at least the next six weeks, the Packers added receiver Myles White and tight end Jake Stoneburner from the practice squad.
