A lot of times, we hear that x-rays are negative on Sunday, only to reveal more negative consequences on Monday.
But for now, Packers fans can breathe a sigh of relief that x-rays on left tackle Chad Clifton’s ankle came up negative after Sunday’s loss to the Packers.
Of course, that doesn’t guarantee Clifton will be ready to play next week. And even he does, it’s worth noting that Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom didn’t get all of his five sacks against Clifton’s backup Daryn Colledge.
We think Odom had two sacks before Clifton left, although we’ll let the commenters let us know if we’re wrong.
No matter what Clifton’s status is next week, the failure of Green Bay to keep Aaron Rodgers upright is shaping up to be the Packers’ biggest problem to open the 2009 season.
