NFL Injury Report:
While the Green Bay Packers announced that tight end Tom
Crabtree injured his hamstring last weekend against the Chicago Bears, the team
added a pair of starters to Wednesday’s injury report; offensive lineman T.J.
Lang and running back Alex Green, reports James Carlton of CBS Sports.
“T.J. Lang, I'm encouraged that he'll be ready for Sunday
just based on the information from (team doctors),” McCarthy said. “It became
evident at some point after the game or on Monday that he had (concussion)
symptoms. So we're playing the high side (of caution). Same thing with Green.”
Both Lang and Green are dealing with concussions. However,
the Packers seem confident that both players will be able to suit up this
weekend against the Tennessee Titans.
Green currently leads the team in carries, and if he can’t
suit up this weekend the Packers would be left depending on Ryan Grant and
DuJuan Harris. Lang has been hampered throughout the season by injuries, but he
was able to start against the Bears.

The Green Bay Packers have decided to bench veteran center Jeff Saturday in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith, which shouldn’t be a surprise since they’re a team that’s always looking for younger players to make an impact. At the podium Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said Evan Dietrich-Smith would start at center against the Tennessee Titans. And moments later at his locker, five-time...
After wrapping up the division title last week, the Green Bay Packers will look to get closer to getting the number two seed in the NFC when they take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon.
The Packers are heavy favorites in this game and because they still have a lot to play for, they should be giving this game their all.
Green Bay’s defense should have an easy time slowing...

When looking at the box score of a given football game, it can be easy to overlook some of the unsung heroes.
Sometimes it’s the offensive line paving the way for a 100-yard rusher and going largely unnoticed. Other times it’s a cornerback shutting down an opposing receiver, only to be ignored because he never got his hands on the ball.
On Sunday, defensive...
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy thinks that RB James Starks will be ready for the postseason, accordng to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“That’s what the medical staff is telling me,” McCarthy said. “Starks’ situation is to hopefully get him back for the playoffs. That was a decision that was made a few weeks ago.”
Starks has a bone bruise...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Greg Jennings could be preparing to play his final few games with the Green Bay Packers, and the two-time Pro Bowl, soon-to-be-free-agent wide receiver knows it.
"Sometimes you look on the wall and you see a lot of writing," Jennings said Wednesday in the locker room. "And it's hard to ignore that writing as a player. Because you never want...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Defensive coordinator Dom Capers made it sound like injured Packers defensive back Charles Woodson would play in the team's regular-season finale next weekend.
Woodson wasn't so sure about that.But one thing is certain: Woodson, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, will miss his eighth consecutive game Sunday with a collarbone injury."I don't feel...
GREEN BAY, Wis. A foot of snow accumulating Thursday and blizzard conditions throughout northern and central Wisconsin will once again give Green Bay Packers fans an opportunity to shovel out Lambeau Field.
On Friday morning, by which time the snow is expected to stop falling, the Packers are asking for up to 600 fans (ages 15 and up) to help remove the snow from the stadium.
Greg Jennings is not naive and he's not ignoring reality, either.
The veteran wide receiver is in the final year of his contract, and has yet to hear from the Green Bay Packers about an extension. Common sense - and Green Bay history - would suggest that means he'll be playing somewhere else next season, a notion Jennings doesn't dispute. But even with the Packers playing...
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson (hamstring) didn't practice again Thursday and seems doubtful for Sunday. SOURCE: Pete Dougherty, Green Bay Press-GazetteFantasy Spin:Nelson (46-658-6) has missed the last two games and most of Week 13 due to a hamstring injury. Even if he can get things together for Sunday's game, he'll be difficult to trust with Randall Cobb, Greg Jennings...
The Green Bay Packers are looking for help.
The NFL's only publicly owned team is asking for as many as 600 people to clear snow from Lambeau Field on Friday. The first big storm of the winter has already dumped 6 inches of snow on northeastern Wisconsin, with up to a foot expected before it tapers off. The Packers host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
Shovelers need to be at...
According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wouldn’t say for sure whether cornerback/safety Charles Woodson will play this week.
Coach Mike McCarthy would not guarantee that Charles Woodson (broken collarbone) would be back for the Tennessee game Sunday, but he did say he hoped to get him some action before the playoffs...
The Week 16 matchup is the fantasy football championship for many league owners, meaning that the entire season all comes down to one single weekend. Many leagues have more than just pride at stake, with a rather large prize payout going to the winner. With that being said, can you feel comfortable going with an old school nostalgic feeling and start Green Bay Packers running back...
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Friday he has benched five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday.
Saturday signed as a free agent with the Packers in March after Scott Wells signed with the St. Louis Rams. He started all 14 games at center this season.
Saturday was asked to evaluate himself.
"I've graded out well," said Saturday, according to the...
Randall Cobb has taken his new role and run with it, developing into the NFL's top all-around threat in just his second season in the league. With the injuries to Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson, where would the Packers be without Cobb chasing franchise and NFL history?
Greg Jennings has been Aaron Rodgers‘ favorite receiver for going on six years now. But the times may be a changing in Green Bay.
Jennings has been the Packers’ most productive receiver and biggest red zone threat over the past five years, averaging about 70 catches, 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns over that span. But a lingering groin injury this season severely limited his...
