Brandon Chillar's shoulder injury could be serious

The Packers lost rookie safety Morgan Burnett for the season Monday, making a thin position on the roster even thinner.  The team has better depth at linebacker, and they may have to use it if nickel linebacker Brandon Chillar’s shoulder injury sidelines him for a while.

“I hope it isn’t season-ending, don’t think it is, but I’m not going to
rule out that it’s not possibl
e,” Chillar’s agent Jim Ivler told Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “By Wednesday, we’ll
probably have a better idea.”

The initial MRI on Chillar’s shoulder was inconclusive.  Signed to a four-year contract last December, Chillar missed Sunday’s game against Detroit, allowing A.J. Hawk to play in passing situations.

  1. Musky–Hawk can’t cover. That was about as evident yesterday as ever. All those dinks right ovr the middle. That’s Hawks area.. This might be worse than Burnett.

    I have to say that Hawk has been playing well in those situations though.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Yeah, Hawk even had an INT so maybe not as bad as it could be. He still needs to play at a high level. In on 12 tackles (9 solo 3 assists) also.
    One game does not make a superstar, a star, or even an all-pro but if he can be a solid player (which he always has been) and stay healthy the Packers will be OK.
    JUST QUIT GETTING HURT! (Easier typed than done, I know)

  3. i hate to have to agree but yeah hawk on passing downs is just awful. he can’t cover anybody over the middle and he can’t pressure the qb which is why they’ve been pulling him out on passing downs and to have to play him in nickel now is just very discouraging for pcker fans and their sympathetic nfcc fan compadres.

  4. It’s looking more and more like the Packers are going to have to put at least 30 pts on the board each week to have any hope at winning the division or even getting to the playoffs. This is not easy with no running game to speak of besides Rodgers & 1 or 2 sneaky runs per game by Kuhn.
    I feel they have to at least give Nance a shot at RB to see what they have (can’t be any worse than Jackson) and Bulaga should be starting somewhere on that line.

  5. The Packers played Phi (Kolb hurt mid-game), Chi on the road – a team that has problems shown by the Giants, and the Bills and Lions at home — arguably the worst teams (0-4) in the league. The Pack should be 4-0 and have the best stats in the NFL. with the exception of the 34 year old CB Woodson, the Packers DBs are terrible. It will catch up to them soon.

  6. Maybe Hawk will turn into what a #5 overall pick should be.
    And maybe Jackson will turn into what an RB picked in the 2nd round will be.
    And maybe TT will go out and sign or trade for an experienced player or two.
    A fella can dream, can’t he?

  7. if I’m old teddy bear, I pull the trigger on marshawn and try to get buffalow to throw in their disgruntled former 1st round pick dante witner. you hate to trade future picks but do bills fans think buff management would take the two for a 2nd? I don’t think al harris is going to come back this year and the loss of harris, will blackmon, and burnett now hurts the packers secondary worse than the loss of grant.

  8. Bigby and Harris will be back in 2 weeks. No trade to fill either position. Capers is gonna have to scheme and rely on the Pack’s depth.
    Hawk will be fine, or he won’t. Either way, he’s a lot better option than most teams have. He had an INT and a nice PD this week. People love to hate on him, but he’s much better than most know-nothing Cryqueens fans give him credit for.
    The Packers DB’s suck eh? Really? Williams has looked pretty damn good to me. You must just have caught the minute highlight real on Sportscenter b/c it’s obvious you don’t know wth you’re talking about.
    Hawk and Bishop are both adequate fill-ins for the nickel. Hawk is a starter in the base, it’s not like we are talking about some PS guy that just signed with the team this week.

    What do stats have to do with anything? A win is a win. As far as the DB’s are concerned…Tramon Williams, the other starting CB, has not allowed a reception yet this year…Nick Collins is a top safety in the league. The starting 4 are fine, it is the depth that is questionable. After week six, when we get Bigby and Harris back all will be fine. Sucks that Burnett is out, but I think an experienced vet like Peprah or Martin will stand in just fine for the next two weeks. I’m not pushing the panic button yet, we are tied for the lead in the division and Chicago looked far worse yesterday than Green Bay did. Oh and Minnesota sucks balls!

    A fella can dream, but I would say world peace is far more likely than any of that.
