The Green Bay Packers suffered a number of injuries to significant players in their loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night. Here’s what we know so far.

Running back DuJuan Harris re-injured his knee after getting hit hard on second-quarter screen pass. He had an ice bag on it after the game, but it doesn’t seem like the injury is going to be serious.

Cornerback Casey Hayward might be another story. Hayward came up with a pick Friday night, but he also re-injured his hamstring. The initial injury kept him out of the first two preseason games and now you have to wonder if he didn’t rush it to get back for game three.

Safety Morgan Burnett falls into the same category as Hayward — hamstring injury. There’s good news here, though. It was initially thought the injury might be serious, but Ian Rapoport says Burnett left the game only as a precaution.

Inside linebacker Brad Jones completes the trifecta. He also suffered a hamstring injury, but we know the least about this one. Jones was having a hell of a game before he got hurt. After, Robert Francois took his place and appears to have earned the top backup inside linebacker job.

Of all these injuries, Jones is probably the most concerning. It doesn’t sound like Burnett or Harris will be out long and the Packers have plenty of cornerbacks who can fill in for Hayward.

    I wrote in to Homer and Thunder, with Alex Petakis as substitute, calling into question our training and medical staff, and calling for some sort of third party investigation and audit, to find out what is going on. He *mocked* me, and Thunder said acl injuries do not normally involve matters of training and physical conditioning, as opposed to, e.g., hamstring injuries. We now have THREE such injuries in the same fucking game–not to mention such maladies continue to afflict, for example, Clay Matthews.
    Hear me now and believe me later, someone needs to look into this. Hope it happens before the Super Bowl window closes!


    Now – everyone needs to get down off the dang ledge. This. Was. A. Preseason. Game. If the guys who could have played last night would have, Green Bay would have won.

    The REAL story is that our 1st/2nd string D held Russell Wilson and the Seabags STARTERS to 10 points by midway through the 3rd Quarter.

    They got one big run. They got one big pass. Both against scrubs. Assuming health, the D is going to be vastly improved this year.

    If ARod was in the game the Seahags would not have been keying on the run. MM’s point was never to win this game. It was to evaluate Harell and others. IMO a good time to do it.

    Chill out.

      That window will close sooner rather than later if these sorts of injuries continue to mount (after years of this shit already)!

    iltarion would orally shine TT’s shlobber knocker if given a chance. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that).


    Agree, our strength and conditioning staff should have been gone last year. Only year in last three we don’t have a host of injuries is the year of the lock out with no offseason strength and conditioning program. Here we go again. Can someone also tell me what MM sees in the ZBS. The three guys on the interior of our line just run sideways and get pushed back into the RB. Either our OL sucks (which I think it does, at least EDS, Lang, and now Sitton who hasn’t played well in 2 years), or our scheme doesn’t play to there strengths. Just watch the replays. The DL and LB’s are much quicker to the spot slanting in. Our guys are trying to run what looks almost like a sweep, and they’re too busy running to actually turn and block anyone. Lacy ain’t gonna be much help with blocking like that. Campen should be gone yesterday.

      I agree with the observation that the o-line has looked awful on run blocking, but as for Sitton not playing well in recent years, GTFO. And who the hell is ZBS?
