Tramon Williams’ Injury Not Serious

Tramon Williams injury

Tramon Williams, the second of the Green Bay Packers’ starting cornerbacks to go down with an injury against Miami, did not suffer a serious injury.

The same was said about Sam Shields on Sunday.

Williams injured his ankle a few plays after Shields injured his knee in the game. I didn’t see the injury, but I was told that Brad Jones rolled into Tramon and caused it. And since Brad Jones is the root of all evil, I’m going to choose to believe that whether it actually happened or not.


But anyway, there’s apparently no major damage, only some swelling. That sounds like an ankle sprain in my professional opinion.

Now, hopefully it’s not a high ankle sprain because that sort of sprain typically renders a guy useless for weeks on end. For example, if Brad Jones were an injury, he would be a high ankle sprain.

Something you wish would go away, but just won’t.

So, does Buffoon have a timeline for Tramon? No he does not. Nor does he have one for Shields or Jamari Lattimore, who injured his neck.

It sounds as if they’re all going to be day-to-day this week, however.

    Seems like we dodged a bullet this week. I’m guessing Buffoon will activate both Shields and Tramon this week, but start House and Hayward to see how they do. If things go downhill, he might just have to play Williams and Shields, so let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

    The injury I’m most concerned about it Lattimore’s. REALLY hope that neck injury is nothing like Finley’s or Collins. We’re already crapped up in the middle as it is. Also, missing Datone Jones is hurting much more than expected. Hope for a healthy return this week.

    Call Brian Urlacher, anybody but Jones.

    Assuming Latt is down for awhile, move Clay Matthews inside where he can no longer bite on play fakes and NOT hold contain. That’s just a suggestion and they’ve had a look at CM3 like that this season.

      I’m liking this idea more and more. While we’re at it, we ought to let Carl Bradford have 2-3 snaps as well.

    Something is not right with CMIII. I trust that he will get back to his old self again. Or is this the result of too many years playing for McGlurpy and Dunce Capers?

      I really hope he does, cause he’s looking no better than Brad Jones out there right now. He don’t even look like he wants to tackle anybody, and he isn’t. I don’t know if he’s maybe dealing with an injury or anything, but if he is they might as well sit him n let him heal, cause we need Clay to be way way better than what he was Sunday. He was a liability on the field Sunday, 80% of the rush yards Miami got was cause Clay couldn’t quit rushing so far up field, he’s gotta be better if we’re gonna continue to get better, especially when he just got paid 66 mil over 5 years last summer.

    Our lb are too slow to contain newton. We should consider putting richardson in at ilb for jones. Richardson is big enough but can cover olsen and knock out newton if he tries to run. Otherwise newton will just pick on jones and hawk ober the middle all day with olsen or his legs
