Packers’ Christian Kirksey likely out a few games with shoulder injury

The Packers will be without linebacker Christian Kirksey for Week Four, and likely a little longer.

The shoulder injury that knocked Kirksey out of Sunday night’s game will force him to miss next week against the Falcons and possibly longer, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN. The Packers’ Week Five bye is coming at a good time for Kirksey, who is not expected to need surgery.

Kirksey exited during the second quarter of Sunday’s game, and the Packers’ defense missed him as the Saints gained plenty of yardage on passes to Alvin Kamara.

The 28-year-old Kirksey has had bad luck with injuries, missing 14 games last year and nine games in 2018.

  1. I liked what I saw from Ty Summers last nite. The defense is most hurt by the loss of Kenny Clark and it is looking like he will be back vs. Atlanta this week.

    The Falcons are the focus. One game at time.

  2. They have peaked too early. Rodgers will lose his edge as the Packers fade down the stretch. As much as Lazard stepped up last night, he can’t be the only one. Adams can’t stay healthy. Can you imagine if they would’ve drafted Justin Jefferson instead of Love? Rodgers might actually be able to trust throwing to him during the stretch run, when he is normally uber safe trying to protect his low interception total.

  3. Considering that JJ went 22 and Love went 26… No we cant imagine it because it would have been impossible.

  4. He sure as heck contributed largely to the defense in the first three games. I trust the next guy will replace him adequately. That’s how it’s supposed to work.

  5. My only question, is how bad must Oren Burks look to lose out on starting duties to a rookie UDFA, and a 7th round flyer that has never had a snap on defense in his career.

    +++++

    Last week the Packers hadn’t beaten/played anybody good. Now they have peaked to early?

    I get you Purples are grasping at straws. Remember silent reading is an option.

    Considering you traded up to get Love, it INDEED would've been possible. And Rodgers has already said he wanted Jefferson.

  8. Rodgers never said he “wanted” any specific college receiver. He said he enjoyed watching several different receivers, including Jefferson. That’s it. He said he perked up when the Packers traded up from 30 to 26. The Vikings had already selected Jefferson at 20.

    Why do people continue to put words in his mouth? Just listen to what he SAYS, and you’ll have the information you need.
