Tramon Williams has bruised shoulder

Williams_Tramon

Packers cornerback Tramon Williams left Thursday night’s game against the Saints after hurting his shoulder, but the injury does not appear to be serious.

Coach Mike McCarthy seemed optimistic as he said today that Williams has a shoulder bruise and will be re-evaluated next week.

McCarthy also said safety Nick Collins suffered a bruised wrist and will be ready to go next week.

In non-injury news, McCarthy reiterated that Randall Cobb made the wrong decision when returning a kickoff eight yards deep in the end zone on his NFL-record 108-yard kickoff return. But he said he was glad Cobb was decisive, and obviously he was happy with the result.

And McCarthy said he thinks Aaron Rodgers is playing with a chip on his shoulder right now. If a chip on his shoulder is what it takes for Rodgers to play like he played on Thursday, Packers fans should hope he keeps that chip on his shoulder all season.

    That large breeze coming from the upper midwest is the entire packer nation breathing a huge sigh of relief.

    Wow. News. Thanks dudes.

    Good news on the injury front for Packer fans. That’s something we didn’t get too often last year.

    This team should be able to do some great things if they stay healthy. Lots of playmakers on both sides of the ball.

    Good thing God told him to take that kickoff out. Or was it Reggie White? I bet they kinda sound the same. And Reggie probably has priority over God with respect to giving divine commands to anyone in Green Bay proper.

    Good news. Tramon is a beast, I think this is his first injury. Hope he heals fast.

    It all works out though because sometimes B.J. Raji plays with salsa on his shoulder.

    I’m glad that AR is playing with a chip on his shoulder, maybe he should tell the defense they should do the same. Rodgers, nor the offense, may not have needed those Player only practices, but that doesn’t mean the whole team didn’t.

    Good news…he’s a great young player with good instincs. Another great Ted Thompson find.

    Tiki Barber – “I can play corner!!”

  11. jcbadger34 says: Sep 9, 2011 5:17 PM

    rabidbillsfan-

    Even the proponents of the off-season practices agreed that they would provide almost no help to defensive players. Just about the only thing those “practices” could help with is timing and chemistry between the QB and his offensive players……And I think Aaron Rodgers proved he didn’t need any help there.

    It was the right decision to run the ball out from -8 yards. First Saints player near him was at the 10 yard line. So, do you think it is worth the risk of being tackled at the 10 or 15 for the chance of a long runback or TD? YES! As soon as coaches realize this, they will stop whining about the kickoff rule change.

    “Tiki Barber – “I can play corner!!””

    That made me chuckle, I got a mental picture of little Tiki, (bald as a child for some reason) jumping up and down saying “Pick Me, Pick Me”

    what the hell does Rodgers have a “chip on his shoulder” for? Must be annoying to have every sucking up to you and drinking your kool aid….. Gotta prove everyone… right?

    13 teams last year didn’t return a kickoff for a TD(Green Bay included). San Diego had three which led the league. Most had only one.

    Looking at that I would say you are wrong. The total loss in field position would far outweigh the one or two big plays you might get.

    It’s his first injury to you because you started rooting for the packers midway through last year/

    The decision to run kicks out of the end zone results in lost yardage statistically…..and no it is not worth the one return for TD you are likely to get that year.

    We’ll be seeing the Cobb return in replays for a long time and I’m going to enjoy it everytime the clip runs! 108 yards … fantastic !!

    He got hit very hard around the 20 or 25 and his feet went airborne and then he came down like a cat and it was adios from that point forward. I’m really, really, really happy he’s not a Bear or a Viking or a Lion.

    Can’t wait to see Vic So’oto get on the field. Judging from how well he did against the KC first string …. it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that we end up with another Clay Matthews type talent on the other side.

    This is going to be an interesting era. I sure wish my dad was alive to watch the games with me.

  19. leatherface2012 says: Sep 9, 2011 6:41 PM

    right, this will continue all year, cuz the most the packers will get is bruised shoulders and god telling them to run it out from the parking lot

  20. leatherface2012 says: Sep 9, 2011 6:48 PM

    lets say for example, the kickoff goes over his head and out the back of the end zone……will god magically elongate the field for him? if this guy doesnt score every time he touches the ball, and i mean every time…….he is a !@#@#$ liar!!!

  21. tangysizzl says: Sep 9, 2011 6:52 PM

    Its a relief to hear Tramon only has a bruise, I bet its a deep bruise though.

    When I first saw it happen I thought for sure it was gonna be a dislocated elbow, a broken humorous or forearm. Glad to be wrong.

  22. leatherface2012 says: Sep 9, 2011 6:58 PM

    it’s ” humerus” not humorous….good lord

    Did MJD tweet about how soft this chump is?

  26. mark0226 says: Sep 9, 2011 8:45 PM

    I respectfully disagree with the consensus to take the touchback instead of running it out, especially when you have an elite KR. In 2010, Devin Hester averaged 35.6 yards per return. Even 8 yards deep, that gives an average field position of about +8 yards on average.

  27. tangysizzl says: Sep 9, 2011 9:36 PM

    Thanks for the correction Leatherface, at least I spelled humorous correctly…even if it was the wrong word.

    It was an honest mistake. One I will not make twice.

    duece5 says:

    This is why it’s hilarious to read the packer faithful grovel over themselves. Dude, really? Williams better than Nmadi???!!!

    Williams could barely hang on to a job a little bit more than a year ago, now he’s going to be better
    than the best current shutdown CB??

    You have to do it longer than 1 year, stay away from injuries, do it for 5-6 years like Nmadi to be in his class. The way packers talk about their last-year 10-6 team, they are all future HOFers!! HILARIOUS!!!

    Pack better find a way to shore up some D, as Brees blew it by you guys for about 400 yards and 477 total. Can’t live like that and be the self-proclaimed dynasty team of the century…..laughable!!

    Of course there are certain guys that will have some leeway, but you can’t really look at it from an individual point of view. You have to look at team averages. Indy last year led the league with 26 yards a return. That is an average starting position of the 18 yard line if returning from eight yards back. Not too good.

    Teams with strong legged kickers have a huge advantage now. How long until every team has a rocket leg that just puts it out the back 90% of the time?

    All the ridiculous psycho babble comments from ignorant uninformed football fans who come on these sights trying their hardest to trash talk the Packers and their fans can’t take away from what the article means to the team…Tramon Williams isn’t hurt near as bad as what it looked like watching the game and the replay of the play. Considering the fact he is one of the main keys to Capers blitz packages and allows Woodson to roam and be disruptive the Packers could ill afford to lose T. Williams.

  31. bobnelsonjr says: Sep 9, 2011 11:24 PM

    If Tramon needs to take the next game off to help heal it is fine.

    It is not as if the Panthers and Cam Newton will be able to burn his back up.

    In fact I doubt few of the Packers starters play the second half against the Panthers.

  32. wiscypro says: Sep 9, 2011 11:28 PM

    Surprise, surprise, Viking fans still running their mouth.

    why does Rodgers always play with a chip on his shoulder? there is nothing but praise for this guy.
