Jake Ryan carted off from Packers’ practice

AP

The Packers have had better days than Monday, but they hope the news isn’t as bad as it appears.

First, Packers safety Kentrell Brice was carted off with a leg injury. Now, it’s linebacker Jake Ryan, according to multiple reports.

Ryan injured his right leg/knee, pounding the ground and yelling.

Ryan, 26, was a fourth-round pick of the Packers in 2015. He is in the final year of his contract.

He started 12 games last season, making 81 tackles, a sack and forcing a fumble.

  1. Injuries to the defense only means we will need even more out of the offense. We won’t be winning a championship if we can’t stay healthy.

  2. So a bad defense takes a couple more hits.
    Hope the best for the boys in GB… but without a D Rodgers and that offense can only get them so far.

  3. This is nothing new. The Packers start every season the same way. It’s the nature of the beast. Doing well or doing poorly in the NFL involves a lot of luck. The Packers seem to mostly get the bad variety. Oh well, here we go again.

    Next Man Up.

  4. Training camp injuries are the worst — it’s almost like the whole month of August is nothing but one long-ass finger crossing session hoping to stay healthy.

  5. Truth of the matter is that everyone including the coaches wants Oren Burks to win the starting job next to Blake Martinez at ILB.

    Jake is a run stuffer, but a liability in coverage. Oren is much more well rounded. Elite speed and coverage abilities.

    I wish Jake the best and a speedy recovery, but honestly this isn’t a injury to lose a lot of sleep over.

    Maybe the Bears will be getting out of last place in the North…..by jumping past GB.

    Well, the Bears will have to step over the Luke warm carcass of the Lions, first, before setting their sights on Green Bay.

    As for Ryan, this is an obvious setback for the Packers and their defense.
    I will agree that I believe coaches would prefer an upgrade at ILB and it may be preferable to have Burks as the starter, but this injury seriously weakens your depth and you simply can’t replace his experience.

  7. There’s always the Lions vying for last place. Min., GB, Chi and then the Lions. Same thing last season, this season and next season. Ho hum!

  8. Yes losing Jake hurts depth, as any injury does. I like Ahmad Thomas who is depth behind Oren Burks. Ahmad can at least cover TE’s which Jake can’t. Jake couldn’t cover a fat guy with cinder blocks for feet.

    If a vet would make you feel better…Navarro Bowman(30 yrs old) is still available. I don’t think he’s needed, but some seem to think losing Jakes 3 yrs experience is some major “setback” If Jake is indeed lost for the season then Gute may pick up a vet.

    I am not saying the Jake Ryan injury is to be celebrated, but it also is not a major “setback”

  9. What happens when you don’t have the World Class facilities like your rival to the West. Or perhaps it is karma for the Packer trolls making fun of the Tony Sparano’s death. Perhaps try to stay classy in the future….

  10. The lukewarm carcass of the Lions…
    That was good.
    Hate to see any injuries before the season starts. Even to the Packers.
