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 possible,” 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.
