Packers DST notches one turnover vs. Jets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Packers defense managed two sacks and one interception in the team's 31-24 win over the Jets in Week 2.

The defense intercepted a pass on its own three-yard line with less than two minutes left in the first half after hitting Geno Smith on a pass attempt. Smith was hit on another pass early in the third quarter that appeared to cause the ball to go backwards in the air, with the defense recovering the fumble, but the play was questionably overturned and ruled incomplete, leaving the Packers with the lone turnover. One of the team's two sacks came on the only Jets play of the game that featured Michael Vick at quarterback.

The Packers will head to Detroit to take on the Lions in Week 3.


Demetri Goodson overcomes concussion, cleared to play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Packers defensive back Demetri Goodson has been cleared to play in Week 2 against the Jets, despite dealing with a concussion suffered in the preseason. He is officially probable for Sunday's game after getting through the week in practice without limitation. 

Brad Jones ruled out for Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014)  Packers linebacker Brad Jones has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jets, as a result of a quadriceps injury that kept him out of practice all week. Jones was able to play through the injury in Week 1, but suffered a setback at some point since. 

Packers DST can't contain the defending champs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) The Packers DST had a rough game against the Seahawks Week 1.

Green Bay allowed 36 points to the defending champs during the game. The team had no answer for Marshawn Lynch, who gained 110 yards and two touchdowns during the game. Green Bay also had a difficult time dealing with the read-option and play-action looks the Seahawks gave them during the start. Both the Seahawks passing touchdowns came on plays where Russell Wilson faked a handoff. 

The Packers did have some poor luck during the outing. The Packers were able to sack Wilson one time, but we managed to use his legs to escape a couple other close calls. On top of that, the team had multiple drives extended by defensive holding penalties and a running into the kicker call. They also dropped two possible interceptions, and were put in some bad field situations by the offense.

The Packers will look to rebound against the Jets Week 2.


Packers DST looking at a tough task Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) The Packers DST should have a tough time Week 1 against the Seahawks. 

The Packers didn’t have a strong Fantasy defense last season, but made strides during the offseason to correct those flaws. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was selected in the first round of the draft, and Julius Peppers was brought in to give the club another pass rusher. 

Though the Seahawks aren’t thought of as an offensive juggernaut, the team did a great job putting up points against Fantasy defenses last season. Defenses posted 7.42 Fantasy points per game when facing Seattle. That was one of the lowest rates in the league. 

On top of that, there are reasons to think Seattle will be better on the offensive side of the ball. Percy Harvin is healthy, and Russell Wilson should be given more responsibilities in his third season. Marshawn Lynch is expected to be the team’s bell cow once again, so the loss of B.J. Raji could really come into play during the game. 

The Packers have emerged as more of a sleeper Fantasy defense in drafts, and, because of that, owners should wait to see if the team lives up to that status. The Packers aren’t a recommended start Week 1.


Khyri Thornton knocked out of final preseason game with hamstring injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Packers defensive tackle Khyri Thornton was forced out of Thursday's exhibition finale against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game, leaving his status uncertain for the season opener.

Report: Packers lose B.J. Raji for season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji will miss the entirety of the 2014 season due to a torn right biceps, ESPN.com reports Saturday.

Raji suffered the injury during Friday's preseason game, and tests confirmed the worst-case scenario Saturday, according to the report. Raji returned to the Packers this offseason on a one-year deal worth $4 million. 


Report: B.J. Raji suffered torn biceps


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji suffered an arm injury in Friday's preseason game, and NFL.com reports Saturday the team fears it could be a serious injury.

Raji underwent tests on his arm Saturday, but the report indicates he is thought to have suffered a torn biceps. The question is whether it is a partial or full tear, which would determine just how long he is expected to miss. At this time, no potential timetable is known. 


B.J. Raji exits game with arm injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji was forced out of Friday's preseason game against the Raiders with an arm injury. Raji was escorted back to the sidelines and checked out by team trainers before he was ruled out for the remainder of the game. The team has not revealed the extant of his injury.

Morgan Burnett remains in starting lineup for Packers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Packers safeties coach Darren Perry said Wednesday safety Morgan Burnett is not in jeopardy of losing his starting spot in the lineup, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Morgan’s our starting safety," Perry said. "And the other guys are competing, unless I’ve been told differently.

"He’s one of our communicators. He’s a leader on this defense. He knows it about as well as anybody back there. I would expect him to be able to command and communicate amongst the other guys in terms of what calls and what coverages and what checks we’re supposed to be in. That’s the standard operating procedure for him."


Joe Thomas departs preseason game with knee injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Packers inside linebacker Joe Thomas left Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans with a knee injury. This is a difficult break for Thomas, who was picked up by the Packers as an undrafted free agent and was having a strong couple of weeks of training camp. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Packers safety rotation could change in preseason


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Packers defensive back Morgan Burnett will sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, reports ESPN.com Friday.

The report also indicates that there is a chance Burnett can lose his starting job, with rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix expected to step in while Burnett is out. Micah Hyde is also making a transition from cornerback and has reportedly impressed coaches. Coach Mike McCarthy did note that he considers Burnett a starter, but that doesn't mean he will dominate the playing time.

"We don't get caught on 11 players, especially [when] the emphasis for our whole defense is to play more players," McCarthy said. 


Morgan Burnett dealing with oblique strain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said safety Morgan Burnett suffered an oblique strain Tuesday. McCarthy added he should know more about Burnett's status by Tuesday night.

Casey Hayward will be ready for OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Packers cornerback Casey Hayward, limited to three games last year with hamstring problems, said he'll be ready for the offseason program starting in two weeks, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Hayward led the team with six interceptions as a rookie in 2012.

B.J. Raji might not accept Packers' offer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Packers have offered defensive lineman B.J. Raji a short-term contract extension in advance of free agency, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Now they have to see if he accepts it.

The Packers offered Raji the options of one- and two-year contracts. For one year, their offer was for about $4 million. ESPN reported Thursday that Raji was close to a one-year deal, but the Journal-Sentinel report says the deal is not imminent and there are indications Raji isn't interested.

Raji would only want to sign a one-year deal if he thought the long-term offers he received weren't lucrative enough and there was still time left to shop himself when the NFL free agency signing period begins Tuesday. 

The Journal Sentinel reported during the 2013 season that Raji turned down a long-term offer averaging $8 million. That offer contained about $20 million in guaranteed money. Raji chose to play out the season and see if he could do better as a free agent.


Clay Matthews: Thumb injury won't linger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who broke his right thumb twice in 2013, said the injury won't hamper him in 2014.

“It’s been doing well," Matthews said in a radio interview, per ESPN.com. "I’ve been getting physical therapy three times a week. I’ve been able to work out with a few limitations, but from talking with the doctors there shouldn’t be any limitations once next season rolls around.

"It’s just been a pain because obviously you look at it, it’s just a broken thumb. But it’s such an aggravating injury for a pass-rusher, especially in the manner in which I did it twice and having to have it surgically repaired twice, it doesn’t make it for an easy offseason in recovery.” 

Matthews was held to 7.5 sacks in 11 games last season.


Packers want more impact plays from Morgan Burnett


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Packers safety Morgan Burnett signed a four-year, $24.75 million contract last July, then went the whole season without an interception. He also failed to break up a 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis in the playoff loss to the 49ers.

According to ESPN.com, Burnett "broke on the ball but looked like he was trying to swat a fly rather than making an aggressive move toward the ball." Said coach Mike McCarthy: “I mean, playmaking, you go get the football.” 

Still, McCarthy said Burnett is nowhere near a bust. Burnett, who had 96 tackles and three fumble recoveries in the regular season, would benefit from better play at the other safety position, the coach added.


Report: Packers will let B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett walk


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) The Packers will let defensive linemen B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett go via free agency according to NFL Network. Raji and Pickett started every game for the Packers in 2013 but the team is reportedly interested in getting smaller and more athletic at defensive tackle and end in their 3-4 scheme. 

Ryan Pickett wants to play one or two more years


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Free agent nose tackle Ryan Pickett, 34, wants to play another year or two and could return to the Packers at the team's price, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Pickett played in every game last season, making 21 tackles and batting down two passes.

Safety is Green Bay's weakest link


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.


Mike Daniels seeking leadership role with Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Packers 24-year-old defensive lineman Mike Daniels will not allow his relative youth to prevent him from assuming a leadership role. Daniels played in 48 percent of the snaps this season, but still finished second on the team with 6 1/2 snaps.

"I'm not afraid to step up as a leader now," he said. "I'm in my third year. I've made some plays. I've earned some respct in the locker room. I feel as though it's time for me to fully let my personality go. Just be myself. There's nothing holding me back now. I'm a young guy, but I'm considered a vet and vets can speak."

Daniels started just one regular-season game, but added a start in the playoff loss to San Francisco.


Pins removed from Clay Matthews' broken thumb


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews had the pins removed from his surgically repaired right thumb last week, reports Fox Sports. "I need to get healthy," Matthews said. "Rehab my thumb and get it back to 100 percent so that way there is no setback starting next season."

Matthews broke the thumb for the second time Week 16. 


Report: 50-50 whether Packers re-sign Sam Shields


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Packers have been in regular contact with Sam Shields' representatives and want to resign the 26-year-old cornerback, but his return is considered 50-50, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Shields often matched up with the opponent's top receiver in 2013. His position coach regards him as a top-10 corner, the report said.

Dom Capers set to return as defensive coordinator


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) It looks like Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers will return for his sixth season. Coach Mike McCarthy twice called Capers an "outstanding football coach" during his season-ending news conference.

Green Bay ranked 25th in yards allowed (372.2), 24th in points allowed (26.8) and 25th in opposing passer rating (95.9). The Packers forced 22 turnovers (11 fumbles, 11 interceptions), well below Capers' 33.3 average in Green Bay, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Green Bay played much of the season without two of its biggest playmakers, linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) and cornerback Casey Hayward (hamstring), and the run defense collapsed down the stretch.


Sam Shields to get MRI


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Packers cornerback Sam Shields, who left Sunday's playoff game early with a knee injury, will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, reports ProFootballTalk.com. The early diagnosis is a sprained MCL, the report said.
