Give Packers rookie T Andrew Datko a little more time before writing him off.
Early reports on Packers’ seventh-round draft choice Andrew Datko were not good. Comparisons were made to Ricky Elmore.
We got our first glimpse of Datko against the Chargers, and it wasn’t pretty, at least initially. He got whipped a few times and didn’t do much to disspell those early reports.
Then he settled down and wasn’t half bad the rest of the game. Jason Wilde reported on Saturday that Datko has looked better in practice as well after a rough start.
I’m not saying that Datko will become the second coming of Chad Clifton, but it’s silly to write him off so early. Bob McGinn didn’t exactly write him off with his ominous Tweet, but it was a little quick to even suggest that a guy can’t play only a few days into camp.
It’s all about health with Datko. He was a good tackle at Florida State — when on the field. Shoulder injuries limited Datko later in his college career. The guy simply hasn’t played muc...

Packers CB Davon House
The right leg injury Desmond Bishop suffered against the San Diego Chargers did not look good. And according to Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, it isn’t good.
Bishop suffered a right knee sprain, but it’s a severe hamstring tear that could sideline him for the entire 2012 season. After Saturday night’s practice, McCarthy acknowledged the impact of losing...
GREEN BAY, Wis. It's been more than two weeks since the Green Bay Packers held their first training camp practice of the 2012 season. The way the team lined up on Day 1 looks quite different than it does now, less than one month before the regular season kicks off.
The movement on the Packers' depth chart is based on a combination of injuries, player improvement or decline...
As this is being written, the Packers appear very close to signing Cedric Benson, even though nothing has been made official. But Green Bay suddenly appears to be in need of a healthy back, particularly if he is an upgrade over the current options on the roster.
Until very recently, it appeared that James Starks would be employed as the team’s feature back, especially...
Green Bay Packers second-year cornerback Davon House is out two to three weeks with a separated left shoulder, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Sunday. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said House will rehab the shoulder before deciding whether he can return to the field or need surgery. House was in line to start at one of the starting spots before the injury happened during a...
Rookie quarterback B.J. Coleman has all the physical tools needed to play in the NFL
The Green Bay Packers haven’t opened a regular season with three quarterbacks on the roster since 2008, but that could change come September. If seventh-round draft pick B.J. Coleman continues to develop, there’s a chance he could join starter Aaron Rodgers and backup Graham Harrell on the final...
I can see totally see it T...
Green Bay halfback back James Starks is suffering from turf toe and his status is considered "week-to-week."Fantasy Spin:Second-stringer Brandon Saine is out with a hamstring injury and Alex Green has been dealing with knee issues, so right now the Packers are looking pretty banged up at running back. All of that is good news for Cedric Benson, who signed with the Packers...
Chanting Green Bay Packer fans could be heard throughout Qualcomm Stadium on Thursday, even over the booing of the home crowd. All the support of their fans however, was not enough for them to secure a win. The Packers may have lost their season opener to the Chargers, but preseason games are the closest you [...]
New running back Cedric Benson arrives with questions about his hefty career workload, ball security and off-the-field issues. Nonetheless, the Packers went with Benson over Ryan Grant.

One of the most important skills that an NFL running back must learn is how to pass protect and pick up the blitz in order to keep their quarterback upright.
The reason the Green Bay Packers ended up having to sign free agent Cedric Benson is because it became clear to them that James Starks wasn’t going to give them much more in terms of on the field production and he...
Bad news, Zooey Deschanel.
The Pack was an awe-inspiring juggernaut through the regular season last year, save for one unfortunate run-in with Kyle Orton and Romeo Crennel’s defense. Recent history, however, is not kind to the team that finishes with the best regular season record in the NFL and so too was it unkind to the Packers, who were beaten quite decisively in the divisional...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers have signed free agent running back Cedric Benson to a one-year deal.
