It’s a good thing that is not as bad as it sounds. Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House went down with what appeared to be a scary injury against the Cleveland Browns.
House hit the deck and didn’t get up. It has been reported that he has a transverse process fracture in his back. Those would be the little knobs that are on the back of the vertebrae bone.
House won’t play against the Carolina Panthers this week. However, these injuries have known to heal quickly and House may return befor the season is over.
The injury further complicates the Packers’ cornerback situation. Kevin King and Quinten Rollins are already on injured reserve. That currently leaves the Packers with a starting tandem of Damarious Randall and Josh Hawkins. Safety Morgan Burnett is expected to take over in the slot.
The remaining cornerbacks on the roster are Demetri Goodson, who hasn’t played yet this season, and undrafted free agents Lenzy Pipkins and Donatello Brown. Pipkins played 46 snaps in Minnesota, but hasn’t played in any other game. Brown hasn’t played on defense at all.
OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD.
Would you look at that cornerback depth chart. All the more reason to rush Rodgers back! This team is Super Bowl bound!
“Brown hasn’t played on defense at all.” Of course he hasn’t. Only the Packers… I don’t care if he’s on the bottom of the depth chart. Why, at the NFL level, do you have a guy on your defensive roster who’s never played defense? Good luck with the conversion project because you know this guy is never going to see the field unless everyone else gets injured too. And if that happens, watch out. Good thing they let Gunter go at the beginning of the year.
Keep the dream alive. #PlayoffTown2017
i though D Brown looked good in preseason because i liked the awareness he showed looking back at the qb. I am hopeful for him and want to see what he can do
