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

Green Bay Packers’ Struggles Continue Against Seattle, NFC West

There is no easy way to say it but the Green Bay Packers simply were not tough enough to beat the Seattle Seahawks last night in the 2014 season opener.

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...

Gettis To Get A Look

Lacking depth on the offensive line following injuries to Don Barclay and JC Tretter, the Packers will workout offensive lineman Adam Gettis on Sunday.
