The Green Bay Packers have activated a guy we liked during the preseason as a pass rusher. Linebacker Reggie Gilbert is up off the practice squad.
Cornerback Demetri Goodson has mercifully been shut down. Goodson was placed on IR on Friday.
Goodson returned from the physically unable to perform list after suffering a hideous knee injury last December. Goodson tore his ACL and started the season on the physically unable to perform list. However, he hadn’t been able to play since coming back because of a hamstring injury.
So let’s get someone who can!
Gilbert showed a knack, if for nothing else, being able to rush the passer during the preseason. The Packers have had little luck in that department all season.
And now, with Nick Perry probably sitting out, what better time to give Gilbert some playing time?
Will the Packers actually do that? We have no idea.
But what have they got to lose?
