Green Bay Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike McCarthy described it as 'unusual challenges.' Playing without two starting wide receivers, both starting outside linebackers and being down to a third-string inside linebacker certainly qualifies the Green Bay Packers to look at their current situation in that context.
But not even the absences of Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Nick Perry was enough to keep the Packers from overcoming unusual challenges to beat the Cleveland Browns, 31-13.
"I think you have to remind yourself after a win like this, where it wasn't the cleanest game for us, it's tough to win in this league," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "I'm proud of our guys."
Rodgers played well, throwing for 260 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. But it wasn't Jordy Nelson -- the only remaining healthy starting receiver -- who led the team in catches. It was second-year undrafted receiver Jarrett Boykin who finished with a team-...
BEST OF MAXIM
With Jermichael Finley currently hospitalized in the intensive care unit, the Green Bay Packers could be looking for a replacement. According to Pro Football Talk, the Washington Redskins are shooping tight end Fred Davis. Davis signed a free agent contract earlier this season to remain a Skin. Now the team is attempting to trade him. […]
Week 7 Injury Report James Jones – Questionable: For a team that loves a three-wideout package, the Packers suddenly likely find themselves down two. It’s hard to imagine that Jones is out there on Sunday, and Cobb is done until very late in the year at best. Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin are likely to see a sharp uptick in targets against the Browns. Cecil Shorts and Justin...

The good news is that...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There was some sense of relief from Green Bay Packers coaches and players when they arrived at Lambeau Field on Monday and found out that tight end Jermichael Finley was moving around his hospital room. Less than 24 hours earlier, Finley was motionless in the middle of the field and needed to be carted away on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury.
It’s never good news when a football player takes a hit up high and has to be stretchered off the field. More often than not, thankfully, the injury is somewhat minor, at least when you think about how scary the actual play and medical care looked.
So when Jermichael Finley lay on the Lambeau Field grass Sunday after taking a hit to the head, you wouldn’t be alone if you thought...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Having assessed the film of the Packers' 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 7, Green Bay's coordinators broke down the bigger topics from the game with the media.
Here are three question-and-answer highlights from each coordinator:
DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR DOM CAPERS
1. With as good as Jamari Lattimore has been in his two starts, did you see this...
It appears a Green Bay Packers offense missing several proven playmakers soon could have wide receiver James Jones back in the fold.
Whether that’s in time for Sunday’s game in Minnesota is uncertain but Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday news conference he’s hopeful the 29-year-old receiver will be back in the coming weeks.
Jones missed his first game in...
It was a scary scene at Lambeau Field on Sunday night when Jermichael Finley suffered a neck injury that left him immobilized, but the Packers tight end appears to be recovering at a rapid pace and his sense of humor seems to be unharmed.
Finley suffered a significant injury against the Browns, taking a blow to the head that led him to be stretchered off the field and transferred...
While his long-term status is still far from certain, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had a positive update on tight end Jermichael Finley on Monday.
Less than 24 hours after suffering an injury that forced Finley to spend the night in the hospital, McCarthy said that the sixth-year player was “very upbeat, very positive” and performing daily activities.
As one of the first players on the scene Andrew Quarless tried to help Jermichael Finley up.
The Packers tight end took a violent shot from Cleveland's Tashaun Gipson on a 10-yard reception.
"And he told me he couldn’t move" Quarless said "so I said ‘Just stay there.’ It was tough.”
Finely could talk but he couldn't move. Eventually he was taken...
The Green Bay Packers won the game against the Cleveland Browns Sunday, but they may have been hit with a pretty big loss--tight end Jermichael Finley. He was having a solid day with five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown when a scary hit caused him to go down. After what seemed like an eternity he was carted off the field and taken to the hospital.
His injury was severe...
The Green Bay Packers toyed with the Cleveland Browns all day Sunday afternoon, lighting up the scoreboard as they got out to a quick 14-0 lead after one quarter and held the lead the entire way.
Finely, who spent the night in the ICU while having several tests done, is said to be doing well and has walked around some, but as head coach Mike McCarthy said, any timetable for him...
On Sunday night, Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley tweeted that not only is he out of the ICU, but he was able to walk to and from the shower.

When the most dynamic player on the Browns is tight Jordan Cameron, Cleveland is at a severe disadvantage. The Brownies have been good causing turnovers with five picks and four fumbles, but they also turn the ball over with nine giveaways as well. It’s not all rosy for the Packers as Mike McCarthy may not be able to dress the gameday maximum of...
Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. The Bears lost against the Redskins and the Packers won against the Browns. The Packers have established a fairly balanced offense with 253 passing yards and 104 rushing yards. Top performers included rookie Running back Eddie Lacy (22 carries, 82 yards, 1 TD) and Wide Receiver Jarrett Boykin (8 receptions, 103 yards, 1 TD). The...
