Packers with injuries fail their physicals
A good number of Packers players (including some surprises) failed their physicals this week and will not be able to participate in the first days of training camp. Here is a rundown on what is know about each player so far:
Charlie Peprah: (Released by the Packers) A lingering knee injury caused Peprah to fail his physical and the Packers...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Any discussion about Packers general manager Ted Thompson used to be a hotly contested debate. Many fans were upset Thompson had the audacity to oust Brett Favre from the job he held with great success for 16 years. Others had become fed up with Favre's will-he-or-won't-he retirement act every summer and applauded Thompson's courage to move in a new...
Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams will need to lead the defense back from a miserable 2011.
As promised, here are our pre-training camp grades for the Packers defense:
Defensive Line: D
Grading the defensive line depends on what type of grader you are. If you give points for potential, a ‘D’ seems too low. If potential ranks far below production, then a ‘D’ seems fair....
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers inside linebacker Desmond Bishop failed his pre-training camp physical after straining his calf this past weekend while working out.
This is an injury Bishop has suffered before. The 28-year-old starter hurt both of his calves last season and missed Weeks 13 through 15 with the injuries.
There is currently no time frame for Bishop to begin...

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was seen working alongside Morgan Burnett with the safeties on Thursday.
With the departure of Nick Collins as well as the fact that Woodson’s in his mid-thirties, it might make sense for him to move to safety this season. The only problem might be finding...
As expected, Charles Woodson lined up as the starting strong safety when the Packers used their base defense on Thursday. Woodson's role, however, won't be changing much. In nickel, Woodson was back as his usual spot.
After selling cheap pieces of paper ("stock") last year that told fans of the Green Bay Packers, "Oh, yeah, you totally can own a piece of this great franchise, we promise!" this week the team held their largest shareholding meeting ever. Coincidentally, it was also their worst. Team officials estimated that upwards of 12,000 mouth breathers were able to lumber...
