No Griffen today.

Cook working off to the side.

Sherels and Morgan essentially just stretched.

EG Toe injury is a concern. He had foot issues last year that caused him to lose steam last in the season. Maybe they sit him for a bit to let it heal if/when schedule eases up?

From what I am seeing, neither injury is serious enough to say so. We're just protecting our best players is all. We can still destroy Buffalo without either player

I told y'all before Cook would be out. I am really worried about his durability. I am so glad we have Murray.

It's why he fell in the draft. Crazy value where the Vikings acquired him but there were reasons he dropped like he did.

Here we go with all the analysts being blow hards over Rodgers. “Yeah the best QB in the league!! Did you see that amazing comeback against C.J. Beathard and the 1-4 49ers?? I can’t believe my eyes” :roll:

God I can’t stand him

That doesn't drive me nearly as crazy as the fact that half of my Facebook this morning is blaming the refs for the game, as is the case with literally every other Packers win. It is so annoying. I get that they get some calls that are in their favor, but they've had calls go against them quite a bit this season too.

The blowhards may proceed. Rodgers and the Packers will fail in the end. They are not a very good team.

David Parry was signed with Hughes moved to IR.

I was a bit surprised Parry was cut because we didn't really have a true backup NT. But now DT is very crowded (esp after signing Tom Johnson). Hopefully this means Bower comes back this week and they think Everson comes back soon. And not that they're worried about Linval's knee.

Linval didn't practice today (same with Reiff and Sendejo). Cook and Bower were full participants.

Linval won't play.
My guess is Cook will go to IR soon.
