Bad news for the Green Bay Packers. Linebacker Desmond Bishop needs surgery on his injured hamstring.
That means he’s going to miss quite a while, if not the entire season. The injury is reportedly a tear to the muscle in the back of Bishop’s leg.
D.J. Smith will step into the starting lineup for Bishop.
In better injury news, cornerback Davon House will miss two-to-three weeks with a shoulder injury. It was feared he’d be out longer.
House, who dislocated his shoulder on Thursday, had a strong preseason opener and looks like he has a shot to be a starter. That is, if he can stay on the field.
House being out 2-3 weeks is bad enough. That means he is out for the remainder of the preseason. Those are games he needed to play in for the experience.
This makes Bush, Shields or Hayward our 2nd DB by default to start the season.
DH can still practice as fa as i know, so it is not all bad.
Sucks losing Nick Collins last year and then possibly Bishop this year. But then again, the Packers won the Superbowl with a lot of starters on IR.
No excuses. Go Pack Go.
