Rookie C Linsley's had one of the 'most impressive' starts, McCarthy says

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When JC Tretter was placed on temporary injured reserve the day before the regular season began, "temporary" was a fitting word to describe Corey Linsley's new role as the Green Bay Packers starting center. Subbing in Linsley was supposed to be a short-term solution to a difficult situation. Five regular-season games later, and with Tretter able to...

Not All Injuries Hurt

Injuries have hurt the Packers for years, but they’ve actually helped a bit this season. Because without them, Corey Linsley and Jamari Lattimore would likely still be on the bench. Instead, both are starting, and more importantly, both are playing very well. Linsley, an undersized fifth-round pick, is already better than Evan Dietrich-Smith, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free...

Packers Xs and Os Film Session: Corey Linsley May Not Relinquish Job

Photo credit: John Konstantaras/Getty Images The center position for the Green Bay Packers has been a case of musical chairs over the last four years. You could even joke around and say it was like the drummers for Spinal Tap. In other words, they haven’t had much continuity there since the Super Bowl run during the 2010 season. Aaron Rodgers has been pretty vocal, for his standards...

Two Many Centers

If Corey Linsley keeps playing at such a high level, the Packers are going to have a problem when JC Tretter is cleared to return from temporary IR later in the season. A good problem. A team that started over-the-hill Jeff Saturday in 2012 and journeyman Evan Dietrich-Smith in 2013 will have to choose between two talented young centers. Tretter, who was atop the depth chart throughout...

Corey Linsley Staking Claim to Green Bay Packers’ Starting Center Job

Players shouldn’t lose their job to injury. But, in the NFL and other professional sports leagues it happens all the time and after the way that Corey Linsley has played for the Green Bay Packers in his first two starts at center in place of the injured J.C. Tretter, it may happen again. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Tretter is a solid player. The Packers planned all offseason...

Favre & Out: Prediction Time

1. Which injury will hurt the Packers more, JC Tretter or B.J. Raji?Brennen Rupp-B.J. Raji. It’s hard to say that losing a player who has never played a snap in NFL will hurt more than losing a player who was a key factor in a Super Bowl run. Tretter was having a strong preseason and looked ready to have a solid season as the starting center, but, unlike Raji, he won’t miss the...

He has trailed off considerably, but the news that he was lost for the year with a torn bicep still takes a starter in the center of their defense off the field.
