Chillar, Havner The Latest Packers To Injured Reserve
The Green Bay Packers now have 13 players on injured reserve after the team placed linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner there, Tuesday.
Both players aggravated injuries — Chillar a shoulder and Havner a hamstring — in the Packers’ loss to Atlanta.
Chillar recorded 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in eight games for the Packers, this season. He missed three games earlier in the season with the same injury, a year after signing a four-year, $21 million contract extension.
Havner was cut by the Packers following the preseason and signed with Detroit, where he appeared in five games as a linebacker and special teams player. Detroit cut him after he initially injured the hamstring and he appeared in only the Atlanta game after re-signing with the Packers. He caught no passes and recorded no tackles.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
