Here’s a look at the Green Bay Packers final practice of training camp and our projected final roster. Here’s a look at who will make it and who won’t.
Green Bay Packers players riding local kids bikes to and from practice is one of the coolest things about training camp. Getting up close with these Packers has taught us things about Nick Collins appetite, Jermichael Finley’s chances of injuring himself and Josh Sitton’s hair, among other things. Check out the gallery and see what you think.
Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields has a new tattoo. It’s not only huge, it’s right where everyone can see it — on his neck.
The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]
Remember Brandon Underwood? During the summer, the Green Bay Packers were high on Underwood. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was the player who made the biggest second-year jump. Underwood came into training camp as the Packers nickel cornerback. Underwood played well during practice, but that didn’t carry over to the preseason games. Then he got […]
In some circles — namely, mine — Green Bay Packers rookie cornerback Sam Shields has already been labeled a future starter with the potential to be a star. Shields, who has tremendous speed, has improved by leaps and bounds since coming to the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Miami, where he played […]
One of the more interesting developments to come out of the Green Bay Packers mauling of the Dallas Cowboys was cornerback Sam Shields taking over as the Packers kick returner. The team has been looking for a reliable kick returner all season. Receiver Jordy Nelson, who was given first crack at the job, had some […]
Veteran cornerback Al Harris can still play, but he didn’t fit into the Green Bay Packers plans. That was the message from coach Mike McCarthy after the Packers released Harris, on Monday. “We made a decision based on the overall depth and future of our roster. A number of different variables went into that decision,” […]
It’s somewhat surprising it ended like this, but the Green Bay Packers have released cornerback Al Harris, a move first reported by Jason Wilde. Harris, who suffered a major knee injury last November, has been on the physically unable to perform list throughout the season. The Packers had to make a decision on whether to […]
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 […]
As expected, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion), linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) didn’t practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has a shot at playing against Miami this weekend if he passes a battery of tests to see if he’s fully recovered from the concussion he suffered against Washington. Matthews also […]
If you haven’t heard that the Green Bay Packers have a shitload of injuries, well… then get the hell out of here. The Packers will be down four week one starters against the Redskins this week — five, if you count linebacker Brandon Chillar and six, if you count cornerback Sam Shields. Those players are […]
Add safety Nick Collins to the Green Bay Packers growing list of injury concerns. Collins missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee strain and said he’s not optimistic about playing against the Redskins on Sunday, according to Kareem Copeland. “I’m doing the best I can to get ready for Sunday,” Collins said. “Just trying to strengthen […]
The Green Bay Packers will be without linebacker Brandon Chillar, who has an injured shoulder, against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, while cornerback Sam Shields is doubtful with a calf injury and not expected to play. You know what that means! Actually, in one case you do — A.J. Hawk will take the bulk of […]
Steffen: It’s hard for me to say this, but I think Packer nation just has to accept it — the Chicago Bears are better than they were last year. They are a different, more confident team. They are playing faster on a defense that features a refurbished Brian Urlacher and the freakish abilities of Julius […]
There was some speculation about what would happen to Green Bay Packers cornerback Sam Shields when Brandon Underwood returns from a shoulder injury. Underwood was the nickel back before he got injured in the third preseason game. Shields has filled that role since. On Monday, cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt made the situation clear. “If Brandon […]
Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]
The Friday injury report essentially determines who will play and who won’t on Sunday in the NFL. For the Green Bay Packers, cornerback Brandon Underwood has officially been ruled out and defensive end Mike Neal and linebacker Desmond Bishop are questionable. The good news is the Packers will have all their starters on the field. […]
