Packers add two tackles to injury report

The Packers have wide receivers Geronimo Allison and Randall Cobb heading in the right direction on the injury report, but a pair of offensive tackles are moving the other way.

Right tackle Bryan Bulaga and reserve tackle Jason Spriggs were both added to the injury report on Friday. Bulaga has a knee issue while Spriggs hurt his ankle and both players were listed as limited participants.

That’s the same participation for Allison and Cobb, who said after the session, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, that he’s “just hoping to continue to make progress” as Monday night’s game draws closer.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was also a limited participant after sitting out of Thursday’s practice. He said his knee injury suffered a “setback” against the Lions last week that may require a change to the brace he’s been wearing for protection.

  1. It looks like Bakt will have a week off from pass protection with Bell and McCray manning the right side.

    With Rogers faking his knee injury will the NFL investigate these acusations?
    __________

    This is an extremely dumb statement, but such is the norm when dealing with everybody’s “favorite” Barney fan.

    But, in all seriousness, many of us are still waiting for the NFL to investigate the Vikings and Everson Griffen’s legitimately faked toe injury.
    Why is this being overlooked and swept under the rug?
    The player, himself, confessed at the time of the transgression that the team was lying.

    But, whether it’s this particular incident, heating up footballs on the sideline, piping in fake crowd noise or Star Caps, the NFL usually chooses to look the other way when this team skirts the rules.

    I am sure the NFL will look into your claim as soon as they are finished looking into the Packers putting Rodgers on IR for a second time last year when that should have resulted in Rodgers being released from the Packers. Talk about skirting the rules.

    Also, do you honestly think the NFL is going to take the word of a mentally unstable person when he says he isn’t hurt? Get a clue.

    What is so hard to figure out?
    An NFL player tried coming back from a serious shoulder/collarbone injury, only to find out that it still wasn’t fully healed, so he was subsequently placed on the IR once again.
    It’s a fairly simple concept, even a Barney should be able to figure it out.

  5. “NFL rules stipulate that a player needs to have suffered a NEW injury that would sideline him at least six weeks to be placed on injured reserve. If that is not the case, the team is obligated to release the player once he is healthy.”

    ____________________

    Aaron Rodgers was originally put on IR for 7 weeks with a broken collarbone.
    After he was cleared for physical contact he was reinstated to the active roster.

    After the Carolina game, Mike McCarthy said Rodgers experienced shoulder pain during the game.
    Rodgers was examined on the following Tuesday by team doctors, who ruled him out for the following game with a shoulder injury. (A new and seperate injury, though it stemmed from the same source)

    Rodgers never disputed this in anyway, nor did he threaten the lives of any local hotel employees that week.

    A complaint was filed with the NFL about the way this situation was handled, but the league office said there was no issue and referred all questions back to the Green Bay Packers.
    This is when the Packers revealed that they were in constant contact with the league throughout the entire process and were complying completely within league rules.

    Now please, tell me again, why Minnesota can completely fabricate their injury report without repercussions?

    The NFL must sign off on any move to IR, before the move is made. They did exactly that in this case. Take your whining to them, whiner.

  9. With their crap roster, is there much difference between starters and backups? I don’t think so…last place in the North for the Pack this year…and upcoming years.

    Next Man Up. What else can you do? It’s the Packers.
    _______

    You could try not constantly whining about injuries as if the Packers are the only team that has injured players.

    Of course, then you’ll whine about officiating. Or bad luck. Anything to avoid having to admit that your favorite team ain’t what they used to be.

    But the Packers vaunted medical staff (we’ve heard volumes about the staff from freefromcommonsense) fully cleared Rodgers.

    What happened was the Packers lost, so Rodgers quit on the team for the rest of the year.

    Smart. Tough too. You can only hope Kirk “Guaranteed” Cousins is 1/2 the player the first time he gets a serious injury.

    I agree, the NFL ignored its own rules and looked the other way to benefit the Packers.
