Packers place Jake Ryan on injured reserve

AP

The Packers knew that linebacker Jake Ryan was out for the season when he tore his ACL last week and they made it official on Monday.

The team announced that Ryan has been placed on injured reserve as a result of the injury. Ryan was slated to start next to Blake Martinez and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine talked about Oren Burks and Ahmad Thomas as possible replacements last week.

Linebacker C.J. Johnson was also placed on injured reserve. Johnson has been dealing with a hamstring injury.

In addition to those two moves, the Packers also announced that they have signed running back Akeem Judd and released guard Ethan Cooper.

  1. Packers also picked up OLB James Hearns. He will take Jake Ryan’s spot on the 90 man pre season roster.

    Hearns will join the other quality talent battling for snaps behind OLB starters Clay Matthews and Nicks Perry.

    Backup OLB’s:

    -Vince Biegel

    -Reggie Gilbert

    -Kyler Fackrell

    -Chris Odoms

    -Kendall Donnerson

    -James Hearns

    Nice group. We will see if Hearns can show something and crack the final 53. Reggie Gilbert has looked the part of quality pass rusher this camp. Biegel, Gilbert and Fackrell are locks to make the 53 behind Clay and Nick. Hearns is a speed rusher and had 15 sacks the last 2 seasons at Louisville.

  2. There are no shocks or surprises anymore when it comes to Packer injuries. It’s deja vu all over again, every season. It doesn’t bother me because it’s the new normal.

    Next Man Up.

    Another Ted Thompson bust.
    ________________________

    Hes contributed more than some 1st rounders inhis draft class,so if your going to draft a “Bust” do it with the 129th pick.

  4. “Fackrell is a lock to make the roster?
    Please…not again..”

    =================

    So you would cut him? Who do you keep over him?

    My probable OLB’s to make the 53:

    -Clay Matthews

    -Nick Perry

    -Vince Biegel

    -Kyler Fackrell

    -Reggie Gilbert

    -Chris Odom

    Like I said earlier, we will see if someone else has a amazing 4 pre season games, but It would take something special to change my mind. I would love Donnerson or Hearns to amaze me, but even if they did it would be Chris Odom they beat out and not Fackrell. Fackrell is playing with the 1’s right now while Nick nurses a ankle.

    Sure, every single player on Green Bay’s roster is quality. Did you happen to watch any of their games last year?

    You just can’t keep yourself from trying to pick needless fights, can you? I mean, we know your mother ran off with a Packer fan neighbor on Christmas when you were a kid, but still.

    Looking forward to actual football so we can stop hearing the same old things since, like, May.

    Repetition humor. Never gets old. Ever. Eddie Lacy’s still overweight, everybody. Carry on…..

  7. Interesting comments from Gutekunst today when asked about a possible trade for Khalil Mack:

    “We’re going to have conversations about everything. Some things don’t make sense, but we are going to have conversations especially with a player of that ability.”

    Green Bay has 2 first round draft picks next year thanks to Gute. If Oakland sees no hope of signing Mack they may wanna move him if somebody starts throwing first round picks at ’em.

    The fact Gute didn’t rule out trading for Mack I found noteworthy.

  8. we are going to have conversations especially with a player of that ability.”

    TAMPERING! Fine’em a first round pick. Green Bay is not allowed to let another team’s player know they are talking about them and put that information in their ear that then might interfere with the on going investigations. Someone needs to tell the rookie GM that the response is always “no comment” when asked about other teams players. Let’s go Oakland…file a complaint.

    Oops, i meant negotiations above. I was so pleased that Green Bay opened themselves up for being investigated that I got ahead of myself. Lol.

    Investigated? Where, Bizarro World?

    When a real life football general manager uses “with” instead of “about” and an armchair general commenter (troll – question mark) overreacts.
