Packers put rookie linebacker Vince Biegel on PUP list

The Packers will start camp with a pair of players on the physically unable to perform list, and hope their stays there are short.

Via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said rookie linebacker Vince Biegel and cornerback Demetri Goodson (knee) will start camp on the PUP list.

Biegel, their fourth-round pick from Wisconsin, is coming off foot surgery in May, while Goodson is dealing with a knee injury.

McCarthy said Biegel could be back in a few weeks. That would certainly help, as they need pass-rushers and he has the opportunity to contribute early.

The good news for the Packers was that center Corey Linsley was not listed, after dealing with an ankle problem.

  1. What an amazing player Biegel is, battling through all these injuries.
    How anyone can’t root for this kid is beyond me.
    No wonder the whole locker room and Packer Nation loves him.
    He’s going to make this comeback a reality and have a great career in the NFL.
    And he’s so much more likable than those arrogant linebackers in Minnesota.
    So much easier to cheer for.
    Everyone just loves this heroic kid.

  2. It is funny that when packer fan’s comment on injured viking players, they are ridiculed and are called out as classless.

    Here you see 3 out of the first 4 post – vikings trolls ripping on an injured rookie who displayed excellent ethics in college and was an outstanding player. Unfortunately, viking trolls are irony impaired hypocrites.

    I made my post with my tongue firmly planted in cheek.
    Just mocking the Barney fans for all their over the top posts you’ll find on any Teddy Bridgewater story.

    Mark my words, injuries will be the #1 excuse in December when the Pack finish 7-9…

    We will hear the same excuse when the “revamped” O-Line still can’t protect Bradford.

    Another midget LB — who’s hurt already.

    No defense since 2010.

    Who’s injured at ILB? Biegel is an OLB just like he was in college…

  6. I liked Beigel in college… seems like he has great instincts and was always around the ball. Not sure if it will translate to the NFL but the Pack could certainly use him.

  7. Biegel is a nice story. Wisconsin kid that grew up a Packer fan, went to UW, and has now been drafted by “his” team.

    I believe he’ll be a serviceable contributor at the least with who knows what for an upside. UW has primarily been known for O-linemen in recent years but they’ve turned out some pretty good defenders as well.
