Packers rule Brad Jones out for Week Six

Clay Matthews won’t be the only member of the Packers linebacking corps on the sideline for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that coach Mike McCarthy said that the team has ruled out linebacker Brad Jones as well. Jones is suffering from a hamstring injury and McCarthy said there was no reason to think that he’d be out of the lineup for an extended period of time. Jones has started all four games for the Packers this year and has recorded 29 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble.

Jamari Lattimore will replace Jones in the starting lineup. It will be the third-year player’s first NFL start. Backup outside linebacker Andy Mulumba did not practice on Wednesday, leaving the team with just three healthy players at that spot with Matthews out following thumb surgery.

The Packers were also without cornerback Casey Hayward at practice on Wednesday, which isn’t a great sign for his chances of playing after missing the first four games with a hamstring injury.

    The Green Bay Hamstrings. Unbelievable.

    As a Patriots fan I thought we had it tough on the injury front but the packers are so unfortunate to face major injuries every season. The only thing standing between them and a Superbowl is the ability to have all 22 starters fully healthy.

    GB will have to use its suddenly formidable ground game to take time off the clock and minimize the Baltimore offensive opportunities. Or else just score a whole buncha points.

    seems like 2010 all over again. Hopefully it is.

    The Packers have a conditioning issue. I heard MM doesn’t like practicing and they do a lot of walk throughs. I mean how can you get into football shape with an hour and half practice, no two a days.

    This team is still soft.

    My take, the Pack rely on lots of late round picks and undrafteds who make the team. They were Div 1a or II, smallish, often injured in college and aren’t able to handle the rigors of pro ball and contact.

    Thankfully the Packers have a fairly easy schedule from this point forward. They don’t have a real tough game until Nov 4th against Chicago, and hopefully Matthews will be able to be return for that one.

    You don’t really believe the Packers now have a “formidable” ground game, do you? Also, a prediction of 1 – 3 in the next 4 games would be generous. Be reasonable.

    Some how some way the Packers will get through this with out Clay Matthews . Sooner or later the offense will click and it it will explode for 40 points a game. If i’m MM i install the old Lombardi sweep especially now that cold weather is coming on. IF i was TT i would call DE Richard Seymour and sign him as a 3rd down pass rush specialist ala Charles Haley. 10-15 snaps a game . IF they can avoid more crucial injuries this team can get hot and they will be a force to reckon with in the NFC come December . Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have to put up Peyton Manning like stats , just lead a balanced attack and score in the clutch.

    I swear Lord Favre must have hired some cajun voodoo queen to curse the hammy’s of all Pack players.

    LOL, another fan calling players on an NFL team soft. Throw on a uniform champ, and say it to one of their faces. The only thing soft would be your gut hanging out of one of those new, tight fitting Nike uniforms. Yuck. Oh and by the way, nobody asked for “your take”.

    sounds like the defense needs to toughen up.

    I still say it’s the VY curse… good thing we cut ‘em – after just a week or two, but his Dream Team goo still got on us and now we’re down several players.
