GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It took eight months to act, but the NFL has suspended Packers linebacker Erik Walden without pay for Green Bay's first regular season game. An NFL spokesperson announced the one-game suspension for Walden on Tuesday afternoon. Walden was arrested during Thanksgiving weekend last year following the Packers' win in Detroit over the Lions. Walden was held in jail under felony charges of substantial battery for three days after an alleged physical altercation at his home sent his girlfriend to the hospital. When Walden's live-in girlfriend later changed her story regarding the incident, charges were not filed and Walden was released from jail. Walden did not miss any games last season due to the arrest. Walden started 15 games at outside linebacker for the Packers last season and had three sacks.

Driver: 'I want to play until Im 40'

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.

Packers' Jennings returns to practice

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Three missed practices was enough for Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings.

Packers cut Anthony Hargrove

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.

Durability The Question With Daniels

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 [...]
