When the Green Bay Packers were handing out what’s largely expected to be meaningless tenders to guys who have little-to-no chance of being restricted free agents when a new labor deal is reached, they also snubbed a few guys. Receiver James Jones, running back Brandon Jackson and safety Atari Bigby, all of whom would […]
Buried at the bottom of an article in which Bob McGinn tries his best to create a not-enough-balls controversy amongst the Green Bay Packers receivers was this nugget: safety Atari Bigby won’t be back.
No, no one’s said those exact words. No, it isn’t a surprise the Packers would choose younger players to replace an oft-injured veteran who’s about to hit free agency.
Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby is nothing if not injury-prone. Bigby strained a groin in Sunday’s victory over the New York Giants and has already been ruled out for Sunday’s contest with the Chicago Bears. Obviously Bigby can’t be counted on, so why should anyone care about a guy who’s only been able to […]
Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby, who’s spent more time standing around on the sideline this season than he has on the field, could return from his latest injury as early as this week.

The Packers have come up with […]
The Green Bay Packers have activated safety Atari Bigby from the physically unable to perform list. Cornerback Al Harris and running back James Starks were not activated. The team has until Tuesday to either activate them, place them on injured reserve or cut them. The Packers had an open roster spot, so they did not […]
Safety Atari Bigby may be activated off the physically unable to perform list for the Green Bay Packers game with the New York Jets this weekend. Coach Mike McCarthy says he hasn’t ruled Bigby out, but he has ruled out cornerback Al Harris, who is in the same position as the safety. “We’ll finalize that […]
The Green Bay Packers will get cornerback Al Harris, safety Atari Bigby and running back James Starks back this week. All three players have been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the season and this week is the first they are eligible to return to practice. Coach Mike McCarthy said […]
