Bryan Bulaga still out of practice, Mike Daniels limited on Thursday

The Packers defense had a big day in the season-opening win over the Seahawks and defensive lineman Mike Daniels played a big role in their success.

Daniels had seven tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and several hits on Russell Wilson over the course of the afternoon. A repeat against Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense would do a lot to help Green Bay’s chances of improving to 2-0 and having Daniels at 100 percent would make that repeat likelier.

Daniels was something less than 100 percent on Thursday. The Packers listed him as limited due to a hip issue and he’ll have his status updated on Friday when the Packers announce injury designations for this weekend’s game.

Right tackle Bryan Bulaga remained out of practice Thursday after being sent home because he’s ill. Bulaga was able to work on a limited basis last week, but was inactive for the matchup with the Seahawks because of an ankle injury suffered this summer. Left tackle David Bakhtiari has been limited this week with a hamstring injury, so there’s a pair of concerns on the offensive line to go with the one that popped up on defense Thursday.

    Best DL in the division…
    —————————————–
    That may be a popular belief among a certain percentage of packer fans, but I doubt you’d find many actual NFL analysts that would agree with that statement.

    Here comes the excuses again. How many excuses are the packers going to make?
    ////////////////////////////////////

    What excuses? Nothing’s changed. It’s Next Man Up, just like every other year. Just imagine how much more dominant the Packers would be over the Vikings if they could avoid this annual fate? Packer injuries are the great equalizer for the division, especially the Vikings. .

  3. Why does it always have to be the best of the best of the best of the best? Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah people. It is not even week 2 yet.
    ——-
    You talking about MN fans after last week’s victory over NO?

  4. He doesn’t seem to get much attention, but Bakhtiari is a top 3 LT – if not top 2 behind Cowboy’s Smith.

    Great, now we have to listen to the excuses starting all over again…

    Yep pretty ironic huh?
    ____

    I don’t think you understand what irony means. The vikings faithful cried exceedingly last year about injuries as to the reason their team turned into an epic disaster. I commented to that effect with the injury report on the vikings thread. You commenting on the Packer injury report with the same response is afterward is irony. You using my post to validate your actions is not irony. It is more akin to; “I know you are but what am I.”

    Why do the packers suffer more injuries than any other team? Why? It’s just unreal… every season too.
    /////////////////////////////

    Who said they did? Not any of us. All we’re saying is “Next Man Up,” which is to say; do the best you can with what you have. The Packers have done as well as could be expected, especially in 2010 under similar circumstances and in subsequent years deep in the postseason. This is contrary to the Vikings last year, when challenged with the same problems. Disobeying their coach on their way to a “meh” finish is not a good example of Next Man Up.

    Watch and learn.

    lining up their excuses for the upcoming 40 points they are going to give up…

    Even the simplest predictions from you have NEVER come true. Stay away from Vegas.

    ________

    Yes, I agree that the Packers would be very dominant if they never suffered any injuries and every other team suffered the normal injuries that an NFL team experiences every year. Great point. Now, instead of whining about injuries, why don’t you tell us more about what great depth the Packers have?

    From the mind of the person who said that Eli Manning would put up 50 points against the Pack in the playoffs and the game would be over by halftime.

    //////////////////////////////////

    You mean the depth that enabled the Packers to make it as far as the NFCCG, while the Vikings cashed out at 8-8 while starting the season at 5-0, and both teams with similar injury depletions? Don’t forget, the Vikings had a ProBowl QB that set the NFL completion percentage record, so that excuse goes out the window.

    Is that the depth comparison you’re asking me to describe?

  11. First, Aaron Rodgers is going to win games regardless of what kind of other players you put around him. The Packers have been proving that for years. Second, why do you say that injuries are the great equalizer? If your depth is so great, why should injuries matter at all? Third, Bradford did not make the Pro Bowl, so your point is not based on truth.

    Your incessant whining about the number of injuries the Packers have compared to other teams is quite unbecoming, especially when it has been statistically proven that the Packers have far fewer injuries than average each of the last three years. Looking at the record and concluding that it was because of great depth while ignoring the contribution that Rodgers makes is delusional, at best. The best cornerback you had at the end of last year isn’t on the team anymore and you’re still trying to tell me how good he was?

    You, sir, are the perfect Packer fan.
