NFL Injury Report:
While Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy didn’t offer an
injury update on wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings, he did not rule
out the possibility that linebacker Clay Matthews could be available this
weekend when the team takes on the Detroit Lions, reports ESPN Wisconsin.
Asked as a follow-up whether
Matthews, whom he initially said would miss “a couple weeks,” might in fact be
available this week, McCarthy did not rule him out.
Matthews pulled his hamstring
during a Nov. 4 contest against the Arizona Cardinals. McCarthy indicated that
the team was putting the linebacker through “some tougher rehab” yesterday and
would see how he responded.
Jennings missed last weekend’s contest while continuing to
recover from abdominal surgery, while Nelson exited early following an ankle
injury. Nelson was considered questionable heading into the weekend due to a
Beyond Matthews, Jennings and Nelson, Packers fans will
receive injury updates later in the week regarding safety Charles Woodson
(collarbone) and fullback John Kuhn (hamstring).

The Packers have already ruled out linebacker Clay Matthews...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers Pro Bowl outside linebacker Clay Matthews has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Matthews, who ranks fourth in the NFL with nine sacks, injured his hamstring 10 days ago in Green Bay's win against the Arizona Cardinals. The Packers had a bye this past weekend, but it didn't offer enough time for Matthews to recover.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The massive scar along Desmond Bishop's right leg is a daily reminder to the Packers' inside linebacker that he's never going to be the same physically. Well, not the physical appearance near the area of his surgically repaired hamstring, anyway.
It's not that Bishop won't be able to regain the level of play that led him to be Green Bay'...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Bryan Bulaga's season is over. The Packers' starting right tackle, who left the game on Nov. 4 with a hip injury, was placed on injured reserve.
Green Bay had a bye this past weekend, but as players reported back for Monday morning's practice, general manager Ted Thompson announced the roster move regarding Bulaga.
"Bryan Bulaga has a significant...
GREEN BAY, Wis. For the first time in two months, Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is pain-free.
Just 11 days after undergoing surgery to fix his abdominal tear, Jennings was walking around the team's locker room with a renewed sense of optimism that he'll be back on the field soon.
"I feel really, really good; really good," Jennings said Monday. "(I...
Evan Dietrich-Smith hears all the nice things Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy are saying about him and does what he always does.
He gets back to work.
Two years after he was cut by the Packers at the end of training camp and spent most of the season looking for work, Dietrich-Smith has become indispensable in Green Bay. Versatile enough to play any spot...
In a move that I'm sure shocked his male roommate, it appears Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has recently been engaged to random blonde "woman," Destiny Newton. Speculation on this topic has run rampant after Rodgers and Newton were seen watching Aaron's younger brother, Jordan Rodgers, help Vanderbilt pull out a win against Kentucky this last weekend...
What did we learn on Day 2 of the “Is Aaron Rodgers engaged,” saga? That Aaron Rodgers, on his ESPN Wisconsin radio show, wouldn’t confirm or deny that the giant rock on his girlfriend’s finger is an engagement ring.
Host Jason Wilde, who said on Monday he wouldn’t ask Rodgers such intrusive questions, sorta changed his tune today, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel...
Though their bye week seemed to come at a good time, the Green Bay Packers are still plenty banged up.
Far from full strength despite a week off, the Packers can win a fifth straight game Sunday as it visits the Detroit Lions, who can't afford many more disappointments if they plan on returning to the playoffs.
Recent history favors Green Bay, which is 11-1 against the Lions...
