The NFL has suspended Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden for the regular-season opener for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
The league announced the punishment Tuesday and said Walden would not be paid for the Sept. 9 game against San Francisco.
In February, Walden reached a deferred judgment agreement to resolve a disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge without pleading guilty. Walden spent last Thanksgiving weekend in jail after a dispute with his girlfriend. He agreed to perform 50 hours of community service and continue counseling.
The fifth-year veteran was re-signed in April after starting 15 games last season, finishing with three sacks, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown. He signed with the Packers as a free agent in October 2010.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the alarm begins to sound inside Donald Driver's college dorm room, his home during training camp, the 37-year-old Packers wide receiver still has the motivation after 13 NFL seasons not hit the snooze button. That might not seem like much, but to Driver, it means everything.
For Driver, it's a sign that he still has the energy to show up for a drill...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Former Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is apparently quite low on the priority list of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
With Goodell in Green Bay for the Packers' training camp practice Wednesday morning as part of his brief preseason tour, a potential NFL return for the indefinitely suspended Jolly was a topic that was met with a quick response.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Three missed practices was enough for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings. As Green Bay began Day 6 of training camp Wednesday morning, Jennings was back on the field after suffering an elbow bruise five days earlier.

Defensive end Anthony Hargrove, already facing an eight-game suspension for his role in the Saints bounty pool, has been released by the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL has said the Saints' bounty program paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011.
The 29-year-old Hargrove has denied NFL accusations that he lied to league...
While it’s probably unfair to compare Mike Daniels to Mike Neal, that won’t stop some fans from making the analogy after the rookie from Iowa left Tuesday’s practice with a groin and/or knee injury. Neal has played in only 10 games since joining the Packers in 2010. Daniels, whose durability was questioned by scouts prior [...]

Inside linebacker Desmond Bishop and fullback John Kuhn were activated from the physically unable to perform list Tuesday, but tight end Andrew Quarless, left tackle Derek Sherrod, offensive lineman Jaymes Brooks, outside linebacker Frank Zombo and defensive lineman Johnny Jones remain on PUP. Quarless will almost certainly begin the season on the list, meaning he’ll [...]
