Packers have no long-term concerns about Kevin King’s shoulder

Packers cornerback Kevin King is six weeks into his rehab from left shoulder surgery, and the Packers have no concerns about his long-term future.

“I wouldn’t think so,” Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said, via Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “It sounds like everything is going good. You never like to see that with young players, but yeah, I don’t think so.”

King’s shoulder became an issue in training camp, and despite a harness, the shoulder dislocated frequently during the regular season. The Packers eventually placed him on injured reserve, and King underwent surgery for Dr. James Andrews to repair King’s labrum.

“These are young, healthy, high-level athletes,” said Gutekunst, who had roughly a dozen shoulder dislocations and multiple surgeries during his own playing career. “So I think hopefully — knock on wood — everything should be good there.”

King, a second-round pick, played in nine games and made five pass breakups.

  1. Not really Teddy, he’s a solid player, maybe you should worry about not having a QB signed for next year, especially after the Philadelphia disaster

    Packer fans can handle one throw-away season. No big deal.

    It’s much easier to deal with than suddenly getting hit head-on by the stark realization that all along your team was never anything more than an also-ran pretender.

    Wouldn’t you agree?

    Packer fans should know this better than anyone. Anyone who has watched them knows Rodgers is the team, and once they run into a complete team in the playoffs its always the same routine.

    Draft and develop ONLY, it was a HUGE deal.

    That model is not sustainable unless you’re drafting well.

    Always? You mean five years or less, or something else that fits your narrative? The Vikings have had three straight years of Pro-Bowl caliber play at quarterback, AND the most balanced team, AND a “vaunted” defense. What’s their excuse?

    At least the Packers have bowed out as underdogs, on the road, in overtime, two out of three years. Yes, they were spanked by Atlanta but they had no right getting that far……but they did.

    The Vikings were favored on the road. You can’t be proud. Keep trying to make yourselves feel better at the expense of the Packers. The New Green Bay Packers will take their rightful first-place position in the division next year. You had your chance.
