You Won’t Be Seeing Kevin Dorsey for a While

Kevin Dorsey

Not that you’ve seen much of him thus far, but you won’t be seeing receiver Kevin Dorsey at all for a while.

The Green Bay Packers’ second-year receiver hurt his foot in practice this week and has been listed as out for Sunday’s game. Apparently, the injury is significant. Coach Mike McCarthy said Dorsey will miss several weeks.

This isn’t exactly a huge blow for the Packers. Dorsey has played in three games since coming up off the practice squad. He has one catch for four yards.

Of course, that’s one more catch than Jeff Janis, who’s been on the roster all season, and one less than Jarrett Boykin, who we haven’t seen on the field since before a groin injury caused him to miss three games.

The point is, the Packers have really only played three receivers this season, but when they actually put another one on the field, it seems like Dorsey was that guy, at least of late.

Maybe now we’ll get to see a Boykin appearance once of twice more this season.

    According to NFL.com, and what my eyes told me on that Thursday night football game, Jeff Janis has 2 catches for 16 yards.

    I sure hope Janis becomes a factor, his speed could make him a legitimate threat, and thus eliminate the need to draft another WR next year.

      I would like to see Janis get some snaps with QB Rodgers. He seems to have good hands. lets put him out there and run a few go routes deep. see if he can haul one in. or at least open up the underneath stuff.

    Keep focused on the facts Monty, this ain’t the National Enquirer.

    Anybody else think we could have used another ILB prospect instead of a seventh WR prospect right about now?

      Yes. Or maybe a 3rd, 4th, or 5th round ILB…

    I expect Davante to become a dangerous weapon before long, and like others have stated, let’s find out what Janis can do with that speed of his. Spread out for more weapons; it can’t just be Nelson and Cobb all the time. Can it?
