Another Packers pick joins the list of injured

AP

The Packers loaded up on defensive players in the draft, using their first four picks on that side of the ball.

Only one of them is still healthy.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, second-round cornerback Kevin King was on the sidelines Tuesday with a shoulder injury, joining third-round defensive lineman Montravius Adams and fourth-round linebacker Vince Biegel.

King had been working with the starters early in camp, as they clearly had plans for the 33rd overall pick.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Adams underwent surgery on his foot, and remains “multiple weeks” away. Biegel’s still on the physically unable to perform list after offseason foot surgery.

At the moment, only second-round safety Josh Jones is left among the first four picks in this year’s draft. And if he’s in bubble wrap right now, we understand why.

  1. The only long term loss is Adams (6 Weeks). Biegel will be back soon and King was just precautionary.

  2. King is out as a precaution, not serious, just sore.

    Biegel started out on PUP but they should have him back midway thru training camp. Barring another unrelated injury, he will be ready by the season opener.

    Adams is out anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks so if he comes back, it will be in the first few games of the season.

    None are IR, which is good news.

  3. I am a Packers fan but I was hoping they would shed their reputation as most fragile team in the league this year. Biegel broke two bones before contact even started during OTA’s. Adams suffers a fracture before pads even came on. The injuries over the past few years have been absurd.

  4. Oh well, every year, same thing. It’s a wonder how they manage to own the division year-after-year. Just imagine how much more dominant they would be in their division if their injuries were only “normal?”

  5. Yeah. They ‘loaded up’ on defense with their first 4 picks. And then wisely spent the rest of their picks on offense, because that side of the ball needed an injection of talent.

    You guys weren’t actually counting on these rookies to contribute game 1 were you?

    I forget, how many consecutive division championships do they have now? One? I’m not sure I would classify that as “year-after-year.” More like “year.”

  7. Packer fans do not worry about injuries in training camp because if the best of the best of the best gets hurt, the next best of the best of the best takes his place. It is not until the Packers lose a game that their fans begin to cry about injuries.

    Every teams suffers injuries although the Pack love to use that at a crutch.

    The real thought you should be pondering is… Imagine if Ted Thompson was a decent GM and could draft or acquire talent via free agency.

    How’s Mr Softy Teddy Bridgewater doing these days

    Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Susie,
    You should already know that the man don’t quit!
    In case you’ve been in your ma ma’s basemanent girlfriend, he’s back practicing and moving and throwing very nicely. All be it, the Vikes will throw him on PUP for $ reasons and let him rehab to full strength.
    He’s Definitely not as soft as your Swiss cheese.
    Omg cheeeeeeeeeser brains!

  11. Drat. Looks like the Vikings have a case here. Since they never brought up injuries to their O-line last year as an excuse, they have every right to call us out here.

    That statement was dripping with sarcasm, by the way.

    Why not just pick two years out of the middle somewhere and say the Vikings are 2-0 against the Packers? Work the numbers anyway you can. Whatever rows your boat.

    I think I’ll go back this decade….just since 2010.

    12-3* OWNED!

    (* The sixteen-point come from behind tie led by a fourth-string walk-on free-agent QB counts as a win. It directly led to the division championship that year.)

    ———————————
    Bridgewater ripped up and dislocated his knee dropping back for a pass in a non-contact drill, you seriously can’t get much softer than that.

    And please, stop overhyping his training camp recovery.
    He’s doing basically what every single injured NFL player does every time they get seriously injured.
    They have surgery and rehab.
    Stop lobbying for a Purple Heart for the guy.

  14. As for these early camp injuries, it’s disappointing that these young players are missing out on valuable practice reps.
    This is football and players get hurt.
    And tomorrow it’s going to be business as usual at 1265.

  15. I hate to see guys get injured, especially at camp no matter who the team is. Here’s to hoping they have their best out there when its our time to play them.

    There sure are a lot of injuries on this squad though, you gotta wonder about the conditioning.

  16. but yet, the vikings couldn’t beat Matt Flynn. so, there’s that. please tell us more about how great your team is. also A.J. Hawk has a SB championship as a starter. any vikings on that list? lol. nope.

    Imagine how mad Daniels will be when every team they play puts up at least 28 points….
    ____________

    More mad than the vikings defense when the Pack put 38 points up on them last season?

    remember 1998! 2-0 vs. the cheese turds!

    #owned!

    This coming from a Viking fan who lambasts the Packer fans for ‘living in the past’. Suggestion; change your name to HYPOCRITE, for that is indeed what you are.

  19. Fellow Packer fans – please be understanding of Viking fans. This is their time to celebrate another off-season championship. They have just 5 more weeks to gloat before reality sets in, possibly longer if they get lucky like early last year. Let them enjoy it.

    *********************************

    Simple fact – the Packers would have to win 5 more in a row to simply tie the Vikings for consecutive conference Championships.

    The Packers have never won 5 in a row in their entire history. Both the Vikings and the Bears have done it – but not the Pack.
