Muhammad Wilkerson Is Done

Muhammad Wilkerson

The Muhammad Wilkerson era with the Green Bay Packers is probably over after three games.

Wilkerson suffered an ankle injury on Sunday against Washington that will end his season. The injury kept him in Washington overnight. Ironically, it was teammate Kentrell Brice who rolled into Wilkerson’s ankle and injured him.

So, in addition to sucking, Brice also injures his teammates.

Maybe it’s time to take that guy out of the lineup.

Wilkerson had 12 sacks in 2015 for the Jets. He had eight in the two following seasons and was released by the Jets this past offseason. The Packers quickly jumped on Wilkerson, assuming he would resurrect his career in Green Bay. That didn’t exactly happen.

Wilkerson had five tackles and no sacks in his three games with the Packers.

He’s also under a one-year contract. He was betting on himself and the Packers were betting on him. Neither got much out of the deal. Maybe the Packers will move on or maybe they’ll bring Wilkerson back on another low-rent deal.

Wilkerson’s injury will bring Dean Lowry back into a more prominent roll. The former Northwestern standout seemed to be coming on in 2017, his second season. However, the Wilkerson signing limited his snaps somewhat.

That will change now. It would not be surprising if the Packers signed another defensive lineman this week, either.

    Wilkerson was average, but solid against the run.

    The bigger problem is, this team has no real nose tackle.

  2. Skinny

    Good thing we have “Sapp like qualities” Montravious Adams and former second team All Big Ten lineman Mean Dean Lowry still on the roster. Shouldn’t miss a beat up front.

  3. If the Packers do not sign another D lineman early this week I think that shows the team is going to bring up Tyler Lancaster from the PS.

  4. Big B

    Not only is Brice useless in the secondary but he took out one of our best defensive players- damn. We may have upgraded our cornerbacks but safety is woefully inadequate. I hope they let HHCD go- no way he is worth what he wants. i wonder what GMs throughout the league think….will there be any demand?

    Packers have 2 #1s next year and about a dozen positional needs. One/two pass rushers a must, RT for the top picks then safety, interior OL, and offensive playmakers. Can’t believe I’ve already gone into draft mode.

      Do any of you think before the regular season next year, we’ll be pinning our hopes on another rookie draft class to perform right away?

      It’s kind of turning into an annual pattern i’m thinking. Like i said, it will take years to undo Teds damage. we are basically rebuilding, without saying it out loud. Except for QB#1.
