Revis practices, Matthews exits injury report

As the Packers prepare to follow their epic Sunday night showdown against the Vikings with a trip to the New Meadowlands Stadium and a game against the Jets, both teams have gotten some good news on the injury front.

For the Packers, linebacker Clay Matthews — the NFL’s sack leader with 8.5 — has exited the injury report.

For the Jets, cornerback Darrelle Revis fully participated in practice despite his lingering hamstring injury.

The Packers list nine players on their initial report.  Linebacker Brad Jones (shoulder) is out; coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday that Jones will have shoulder surgery.  Receiver Donald Driver (quadricep) did not practice.  Defensive lineman Ryan Pickett (ankle) also did not participate.

Practicing on a limited basis were tackle Chad Clifton (knee), safety Nick Collings (knee), defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf), tackle Mark Tauscher (shoulder), and cornerback Charles Woodson (toe).

For the Jets, center Nick Mangold (shoulder) fully participated in practice.  Also, linebacker Calvin Pace (foot) practiced on a limited basis.

    It should be an exciting game, A. Rogers is as good as advertised vs. Jets defense with Revis allegedly at full strength.

    Pace has come back amazingly fast…. he better not reinjure himself.

    Clifton and Taucher always are limited in practice…old dudes need rest before games.

    Wow, are the Pack beat up. 10 guys on IR, and a whole host of other starters on the injury list… compared to two for the Jets.

    Re: GreenAsGrass
    Who is A. Rogers ???
    You can’t be a Packers fan and NOT know it’s spelled Rodgers. Guessing you probably spell the previous QB’s name as Farve too.
    Dope.

    I’m excited for this game. I wanna see how rodgers plays against a premier defense like the jets. It’ll be a good test.

    well, jones is on ir, so that’s 10 so far this season, we’re gonna have to grind it out with our practice squad guys, our 3rd stringers, whoever we’ve got, we’re gonna have to make every game a dog fight.

    ” we’re gonna have to make every game a dog fight.”
    Might as well just play with abandon now. Let the players play, take some chances, and see who steps up. If nothing else, the opportunities for the young guys are great. Bound to speed up the learning curve.

    They need to put Mathews facemask on IR because it took a beating against the Vikes.

    I think the Packers actually have a punchers chance in this game. Yes, the Jets defense is tough, but their blitzes make their DBs play one-on-one and the Packers have good WRs. If the Packers can deguise their coverage maybe they can force Sanchez into a couple of mistakes.

    Hey Packfanin Pack Land,
    Greenasgrass is a Jets fan.
    Makes your negative comment look ignorant.

    The Pack still have Rodgers and Matthews as well as Woodson, Collins, and Tramon Williams. Lots of talent still at the skill positions and the O-line is looking good.
    The D-line is very thin, which will be the biggest concern against the Jets O-line and running backs.

    I doubt the Packers will win but they haven’t been blown out in a while…so it should at least be a game.
    With over half of the front seven starters out for Green Bay..the Jets should run it down the packers throat and keep it away from Rodgers.

  15. CliveRush says: Oct 27, 2010 9:52 PM

    Mangold should help with the run game. Big plus for the jets.

    I was really hoping for a few Vikes fans to chime in here…They always have excellent foresight and opinions.
