As if putting the best quarterback of his generation on injured reserve wasn’t enough. The Green Bay Packers did some more work on Friday.
Gone are safety Kentrell Brice and long snapper Taybor Pepper.
Both have been put on injured reserve.
Pepper is probably the bigger loss.
BECAUSE WHO COULD EVER POSSIBLY SNAP THAT BALL!?!?!
I don’t know? Could someone who snaps the ball on a regular basis possibly do this job?
But you and I both know that the Green Bay Packers’ center cannot long snap! That’s too specialized.
I CANNOT DO MORE THAN ONE THING WITH THIS FOOTBALL!
Anyway, Kentrell Brice and Taybor Pepper are out. This is the second long snapper the Packers have gone through this season. They previously put Brett Goode on injured reserve.
The team brought back Derek Hart, who was with them in training camp, to handle Pepper’s duties.
Probably more interesting is the Packers also activated rookie linebacker Vince Biegel, who had been on the physically unable to perform list. Biegel had foot surgery in May and hadn’t participated in training camp.
Biegel was expected to bolster the Packers’ pass rush, which has been largely dormant this season. We’re not going to expect him to come in and be a savior in that area, but maybe he can provide something more than Kyler Fackrell has.
The Packers also brought rookie cornerback Donatello Brown up from the practice squad. Brown was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State. He has been on the practice squad all season.
And hell, with how the Packers’ corners have performed this season, he might even just get some playing time.
