Packers place Don Barclay on IR to make room for Ahmad Brooks

The Packers placed backup interior offensive lineman Don Barclay on injured reserve. He injured his ankle in the Aug. 10 preseason game against the Eagles and hasn’t returned.

Green Bay’s decision not to place rookie Montravius Adams on injured reserve could mean the third-round pick might return sooner than IR/designated to return would allow. Adams has not practiced since he underwent foot surgery after only two training camp practices.

However, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky reports the team will have defensive end Quinton Dial in for a visit Monday. The 49ers released Dial, who started 30 games the past three seasons, on Saturday.

Green Bay moved Barclay to make room for outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who finally signed after agreeing to a one-year deal last week.

The Packers also announced the signings of 10 players to their practice squad: guard Kofi Amichia, cornerback Donatello Brown, quarterback Joe Callahan, receiver Michael Clark, linebacker Reggie Gilbert, defensive tackle Izaah Lunsford, linebacker Derrick Mathews, offensive lineman Adam Pankey, safety Jermaine Whitehead and receiver DeAngelo Yancey.

  1. I will enjoy every moment of Rodgers running for his life this year. Thompsons refusal to address weaknesses in free agency will catch up to his green bay rodgers eventually.

    Next man up! Wait, who are you again? Is Alex Boone still available?? Ha! Pack Ha!

    you’re not the patriots, you’re more like the dan marino dolphins with one ring.

    That’s rich, coming from a fan of the Minnesota Browns.

  3. The Packers are so deep the have signed one 49er reject and are looking at another. Personally have no issue with teams bringing in other players, I am just laughing at all the Packers fans on here boasting at the end of every preseason how deep the Packers are. EVERY PRESEASON. (Like most of them can even tell :P).

  4. Haha, you hear it all these days. Criticizing an NFL QB cause he’s ONLY won 1 ring. How ridiculous is that??

    “Haha, you suck, you can only win 1 Super Bowl Championship.”

    What a douche!!

    And every year, the Packers have effectively employed “Next Man Up” and gone further in the postseason than they should. They can do that because of depth.

    Just imagine how much more dominant the Packers would be over the Vikings if they could avoid that annual fate.

  6. As the purples’ desperation grows deeper, their comments get more vitriolic. They have a grand total of nothing of their own to be proud of so they lash out and try to demean the accomplishments of others. It’s sad, really; but devilishly fun to watch.

    Dude, low blow. The Browns have four NFL championships.

    The Packers were the the Browns for about 20 years and those days will be back sooner than you think.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
    As opposed to 50 and counting?

  9. I’m a Niners fan and both those guys are good. Brooks always overachieved and Dial had a 73 PFF ranking last year which is above average. Both of these guys are solid NFL players.

    Said every Viking fan, every year, for the last twenty-five years.

    Why do Viking fans feel they’ve earned the right to debate with us? They’ve got nothing but resentment and jealousy and that puts them on a par with Packer fans?

    Why?

  11. They’ve got nothing but resentment and jealousy and that puts them on a par with Packer fans?

    ————————

    Well said! Minnesota fans lack the arrogance and rudeness to be grouped with Packer fans.

  12. Plus no Vikings fans have ever posted their men’s league basketball war stories and tried to draw comparisons to professional athletes….

  13. Because you guys don’t realize that all you have is the absolute, pure LUCK of accidentally having Favre-Rodgers. Two and a half decades of HOF QBs on almost any other team would mean Dynasty. Not in Wisconsin, though. It just means, “Let’s pretend we are the Patriots and people care about what happened in 1923.”

  14. It wasn’t luck Lukeshow, it was destiny. Yes we care about Curly Lambeau, Johnny “Blood” McNally, Iron Mike Michalske, Arnir Herber, Don Hutson, Willie Davis, Bart Starr, Herb Adderly, Vince Lombardi and all the rest who played and coached in Titletown.

  15. Just to take a moment to rise above the Viking troll comments, Don Barclay has always started a season as a second stringer and this year is no different. So injuries are part of the NFL and the Packers must have looked at his injury and concluded that he was done for the season. It could have been worse, they could have cut him and the Vikings would have claim him as they are always waiting by the Packer dumpster for their next starter.

  16. the Minnespota Brown? come on Stellar… we expect more out of a lead troll
    ——
    Do you even understand the word irony? Here you are, in a packer story (yet again) calling OTHER people trolls…..in their own thread…that has nothing to do with your team.

  17. Ron Wolf traded a first round pick for an out of shape, drunken third string QB that Atlanta couldn’t wait to get rid of and nobody else wanted. The purples hopped up and down, crowing about how Wolf got fleeced. He than handed that kid to Mike Holmgren, who developed that kid into a first-ballot hall of famer.

    Ted Thompson drafted a kid from Cal that mysteriously and miraculously fell in the draft. The Vikings passed on him TWICE and the purples hopped up and down, crowing about how Thompson got fleeced. While the new kid sat behind the first-ballot guy, Mike McCarthy and company (including that first-ballot guy) revamped his footwork, overhauled his entire throwing motion and taught him to read and utterly destroy defenses. That kid from Cal will be the first to tell you, despite public perception, the first-ballot hall of famer ahead of him taught him how to “really throw the football.” After all the Packers’ development, this kid is a lock for the HOF and likely, but not yet a lock, to also be a first-ballot guy.

    Meanwhile, the Minnesota brain trust has gotten their hands on several promising young quarterbacks via the draft or otherwise. How many is it now? 15? 20? Each time, the purples hopped up and down, crowing how THIS was the guy to unseat the first-ballot guy or the kid from Cal as best in the division and of course, their “dynasty starts now!” Doesn’t it always? Each and every time, the Vikings have “developed” these promising young quarterbacks right to someone else’s bench or out of football altogether… in a hurry.

    Today, the purples hop up and down, crowing about how the Packers “lucked into” their two most recent HOF quarterbacks. I like it when they hop. It shows me how frightened and desperate they really are.

  18. Man, I must be getting old. I remember the days when a lot of you guys were still in diapers and when the Purple People Eaters were using the Pack to wipe up the floor. The Pack was really the “Browns of the 70s and 80s”. I really think if they don’t get more supporting cast members for Rodgers soon that they will visit that 20 year span again. Aaron Rodgers is a very good QB – probably top 5 of all time (NOT the best ever) but if TT does not get off his Rodgers and Favre laurels soon and start thinking more long term, he is going to be in trouble. He’ll probably ride off into the sunset just about the time the ship starts taking on serious water.

  19. @jbvikes-

    I’m your age or older. I’ve lived through the Lombardi years, the abyss of the 70s and 80s, and into today. The difference is, in the 70s and 80s, we weren’t hopping up and down, proclaiming our “dynasty starts now” or trying to tear down other teams. We KNEW how bad the Packers were and it was tough to be a fan back then.

    You seem reasonable enough. See my post directly above yours. What will you say if/when the Packers develop a third HOF QB in a row? Will that also be “luck” and will “the window be closing” every year? Over the last 20 years, former Packer backups have had more success as starting QBs than everybody that came through Minnesota, combined. Were they just “luck” too? At what point do you finally realize the Packers are very good at developing quarterbacks?

  20. Because you guys don’t realize that all you have is the absolute, pure LUCK of accidentally having Favre-Rodgers. Two and a half decades of HOF QBs on almost any other team would mean Dynasty. Not in Wisconsin, though. It just means, “Let’s pretend we are the Patriots and people care about what happened in 1923.”

    Pure luck? Are you on the pipe?? The Packers trade the Falcons for a back-up QB Jerry Glanville said would never start in the NFL. They developed him into a HOF QB at the same time they developed other QB’s who started in the NFL. Ty Detmer, Mark Brunell, Aaron Brooks, etc..

    They also took A-Rod after he was passed over but a lot of teams including your vikings (twice) and developed him into a HOF QB. Neither Favre or Rodgers walked in HOF ready, they had talent but were developed.

    As far as any other team having a dynasty with two HOF QB’s how is it that the vikings had Tarkenton and Moon and didn’t even manage to win 1 Super Bowl? Don’t answer, you will only embarrass yourself.

    Dan Marino never won a super bowl ring. Just shows the relevancy of your opinions.
