Ted Thompson stalking his prey – players for the final roster spots
As we approach the final preseason game of 2012, it’s time to take a first crack at predicting the Packers 53-man roster to start the season. Once the preseason game against the Chiefs is in the books, we will publish a table with predictions from the entire staff here at AllGreenBayPackers.com (so you can mock us all from one convenient place).
Looking over the candidates for this year’s 53-man roster, I’m feeling like it will be an easier task than it was last year. There were more wide-open spots at the bottom of the roster last season, as can be evidenced by Jamari Lattimore, MD Jennings and Vic So ‘oto all making the final roster as UDFAs.
Quarterback (2): Rodgers, Harrell
Despite what Ted Thompson says, the packers have done a masterful and purposeful job of hiding BJ Coleman from the prying eyes of the rest of the league. Last week he got a whole 5 minutes of playing time at the end of the game, and the Pac...

Good luck to Ted Thompson as he whittles down the current Packers roster to 53 players.
We seem to say the same thing every year about the Green Bay Packers’ training camp roster: it’s going to be hard to make some of these cuts. There’s just so much talent across the positions, how do you decide who to keep? After looking at what Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy have done in...
GREEN BAY, Wis To get their roster down to 75 by the Monday afternoon deadline, the Green Bay Packers released two players, placed six on injured reserve and put two on the reserve physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
Defensive end Jarius Wynn, who had three sacks and started four games last season, was one of the two players released. Fullback Jon Hoese was the other.
The Green Bay Packers have placed linebacker Desmond Bishop on injured reserve, ending his season.
Bishop tore his right hamstring in the team's first preseason game at San Diego. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said at the time that Bishop's season was in jeopardy. He had to have surgery, so Monday's move was widely expected.
The Packers also placed running back Du'...

A healthier Tramon Williams looks like an elite cornerback once again
The title of this post pays homage to Notes On a Scandal - one of the most underrated movies in recent years. Anyway, here are 5 thoughts from the Packers’ 27-13 victory over the Bengals on Thursday:
1) Tramon Williams isn’t Darrell Revis, but he may receive similar treatment from quarterbacks this season...
John Kuhn decided to prank his MVP QB with a shaving cream pie to the face while he was holding court with the media. Unfortunately Aaron Rodgers looked none too pleased with the joke. Get a sense of humor buddy!
Just guessing the Packers FB didn’t know any better. He should probably just stick to blocking and working hard during the exercise programs.
Best of luck to John on getting...
Second-year offensive tackle Derek Sherrod is still on the active roster
The Packers have yet to place Derek Sherrod on the physically unable on perform list, and while it could still happen by the end of the week, it’s beginning to look as if the second-year tackle will start the season on the 53-man roster. And he should. Having the former Mississippi State star available to...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It sounds like Cedric Benson is about to officially be named the Packers' starting running back for this season.
Benson's biggest competition for that spot during Green Bay's recent training camp practices has been second-year running back Alex Green. However, with Green still somewhat limited 10 months after tearing his ACL, Benson will likely get...
The Packers placed six players on injured reserve, two on reserve/physically unable to perform, and released two others on Monday.
The team placed RB Duane Bennett, LB Desmond Bishop, TE DeMarco Cosby, OG Ray Dominguez, DE Johnny Jones and WR Shaky Smithson on injured reserve.
TE Andrew Quarless (still recovering from a serious knee injury suffered late last season) and LB...
