The Packers will place nose tackle Kenny Clark on injured reserve, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

Clark was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Bears with an elbow injury. He does not need surgery, per Pelissero.

Clark, a first-round pick in 2016, had a breakout season. He made 55 tackles, six sacks. two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble and three pass breakups.

Clark missed only one game his first two seasons when he made 76 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

Undrafted free agent Tyler Lancaster started for Clark on Sunday and played in a season-high 85 percent of the defensive snaps. Lancaster earned a promotion to the active roster from the practice squad Oct. 6.

  1. Hey ariani, it may help you (since you obviously have a lack of football knowledge) to make a comparison in this case. Your nose tackle, Linval Joseph, has 31 tackles so far this year. He will have to make 24 more tackles this season just to match Clark. Does that help you understand why this was a break out year for our young man?

    I would have loved to have seen that D-line play together a full season. But hey I also would have loved to see Davante, G-Mo, and Cobb play together a full season. Or Kevin King, Tramon, and Jaire.

    Injuries happen and are part of the game. No excuse. But damn our luck all to hell this season.

    People are saying the Pack should play back ups the last two games. I say did you not watch the games the last 6 weeks? It’s been back ups of the back ups already

    I want these last 2 wins bad! Anyone that says they have ever wanted the Packers to lose a game is not a actual Packers fan. FACT! I love that Aaron doesnt even pause when asked if he may sit these last two games:

    “Hell No!”

    When 55 tackles is considered “breakout ” you know your defense is garbage.

    ===========

    When you’ve been in the NFL 50 seasons and you have dust bunnies in your trophy case, you know your team is ….yeah…you get it …

  4. Ariani1985 has an IQ that is 1.985, hence his handle.

    He’s so dumb he couldn’t pour water out of a boot if the directions were on the heel.

  5. Clark has played over 200 more snaps than linval because as usual the green bay defense is garbage. In Minnesota the defense goes 3 and out and gets off the field. Simple math!

  6. I wanna see more of this Fadol Brown character they picked up recently. Not sure how many snaps he played but he blew up a couple plays against da Bears.

  7. I live in Chicago and congrats to the Bears for going from last to 1st in one season. But the sportscasters are making it seem like this was win of epic proportions. In fact they beast a team at home by one touchdown that was missing 7 starters (Clark and Daniels among them), and a QB who has been partially inaccurate all year.
    Enjoy it, but it will be tough for Bears to win as many games next year.

    Ignore arianus. He’s here to pick fights. He’s not even interested in football.

    Says the guy that only yesterday went on a thread to openly cheer for every other team but the Vikings competing for the final seed in the playoffs.

    Hypocrite.

    Do you remember what you type from day to day? I don’t know how you can’t, you are the epitome of redundant. But you must not. If you did you’d quit while you are way behind.

    You may want to lay off the PBR while you post, you might make a little more sense if you do.

  9. When you’re out of the playoffs there is no need to play anybody that is injured. No need to fight through it. Either the team or the players themselves should think about the future.

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    The Packers are out and you’re upset because I choose to support the Bears instead of the Vikings. Geez……..I wonder why?

    Come on Lions, come on Eagles, come on Redskins, come on Bears! Make the Vikings earn it! Nothing lucky this year!
