Late touchdowns only blemish for Packers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Packers defense dominated in a 38-17 win over the Panthers in Week 7, but a couple of late garbage time touchdowns sullied their strong effort.

The Packers held the Panthers to just a field goal through three quarters, and allowed just 331 yards of total offense in the game. The Panthers turned the ball over once on an interception by Cam Newton, who was also sacked three times.

The Packers DST unit has scored at least 9 points in five straight games, and is now average 10.6 per game on the season. They will look to keep up the strong play in Week 8 against the Saints. 


Packers CB Davon House exits game with finger issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Packers cornerback Davon House suffered an injury to his finger in Week 7 against Carolina. House sustained the injury in the fourth quarter and was ruled questionable for the remainder of the game. He registered one tackle along with one defended pass.

Packers practice again without starting cornerbacks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Packers cornerback Sam Shields (knee) and cornerback Tramon Williams (ankle) were held out of practice for a second straight day Thursday. The Packers are preparing to play the Panthers in Week 7.

Packers say injuries to Shields, Williams, Lattimore not long-term


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) The Packers were bit by the injury bug defensively, with Sam Shields (knee), Tramon Williams (ankle) and Jamari Lattimore (neck) all going down with injuries in a Week 6 win over Miami. Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters in Monday's news conference that the injuries to his players are not considered to be long-term issues, per the team's official website.

The Packers will host the Panthers Sunday.


Report: Packers' Tramon Williams has 'no major damage' in ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Packers cornerback Tramon Williams suffered "no major damage" to his ankle during Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a source told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He does have "some swelling" and the team isn't sure on a timetable for his return.

Packers short on sacks again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) After piling up six sacks in a dominant showing against the Vikings in Week 5, the Packers DST came back down to earth Week 6 at Miami, allowing 24 points on 349 yards. They did generate two turnovers, recording two interceptions and recovering a fumble, but they also had just one sack to give them seven in five games apart from Week 5.

Though the Packers have done a good job of limiting the points against them this year -- Week 6 was only the third time in six games they've given up even 20 -- their DST has been only so-so in Fantasy in part because of their lack of sacks. Take away those six in Week 5, and they're in the bottom third of the league.

The Packers DST is plenty good enough to start with the right matchup, but it has what figures to be a tough one with Cam Newton back to form Week 7 against Carolina.


Sam Barrington, Josh Boyd back at practice for Packers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Packers linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) and defensive lineman Josh Boyd (knee) both returned to the practice field on Wednesday after missing Week 5 against Minnesota due to injuries, ESPN reports.

The Packers will travel to Miami for a Week 6 showdown against the Dolphins.


Packers' Julius Peppers takes one back to the house


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Packers linebacker Julius Peppers scored his fifth career touchdown Thursday night at home against the Vikings in Week 5.

Peppers picked off Christian Ponder in the second quarter and took it 49 yards to the end zone for a touchdown, giving his team a 21-0 lead. Three of his five touchdowns have been interception returns. Four of his five scores have been from 40-plus yards. Peppers became the first player in NFL history to register 100 sacks and 10 interceptions in a career.

He registered three tackles, half of a sack and a pass defended in a 42-10 victory.


Packers rule Datone Jones out for remainder of Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) The Packers have ruled defensive end Datone Jones out for the remainder of Thursday night's game against the Vikings because of an ankle injury. Jones suffered the injury in the second quarter and was unable to return to action. He finished with a quarterback hit and no tackles before the injury.

The Packers will travel to Miami to face the Dolphins in Week 6.


Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, Brad Jones get the green light for Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Packers linebackers Clay Matthews (groin), Mike Neal (hip) and Brad Jones (quadriceps) have been ruled active for Thursday night's Week 5 showdown against Minnesota, per the team's official website. However, Jamari Lattimore has been named the starter ahead of Jones, who missed the previous three games with a quadriceps injury.

Packers a worthwhile play for Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Packers have more than held their own in tough matchups against the Lions and Bears over the last two weeks, racking up 21 combined Fantasy points. Things should get a lot easier in Week 5, with the Vikings on the schedule.

The Vikings might be down to their third quarterback this week, if Teddy Bridgewater's ankle keeps him out. Even if Bridgewater does play, however, he will be making his second NFL start just four days after suffering an ankle injury. If Bridgewater is limited, the Packers could feast on a one-dimensional offense that has struggled to run the ball before last Sunday.

The Packers' defense has improved in each game this season, and they will look to keep the trend going in Week 5. Consider them a solid starting option, worth picking up on waivers for this week.


Packers DST bends but doesn't break


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) The Packers made a couple of big defensive plays to keep the Bears offense at bay Week 4 at Chicago. The Bears had no problem piling up yards, finishing with 496 -- the most the Packers have given up in a game this season -- and yet they scored only 17 points.

Clay Matthews and Sam Shields each had a big interception and a big return in the second half, ending productive drives for the Bears and turning them into scoring opportunities for the Packers. Datone Jones also recorded a sack.

Though the Packers DST has been light on big plays so far this season, each week it has allowed fewer points than the week before. It has its most favorable matchup yet in Week 5, hosting the Vikings on Thursday night.


Packers defense holds Lions in check


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Packers DST turned in a solid performance Week 3 against the Lions.

The team did a solid job in the passing game, keeping Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson out of the end zone. The team was hurt by offensive turnovers. The Lions managed to run in a score after an Eddie Lacy fumble early in the contest. Reggie Bush scored the only offensive touchdown against Green Bay. 

The Packers had some success with turnovers and pressure. Outside of the two interceptions, Green Bay sacked Stafford twice, and forced one fumble.

They'll look for more next week against the Bears. 


Packers rule out just one on defense for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Packers unveiled their injury report for Week 3, and they don't have many question marks on the defensive side of the ball for Week 3 against the Lions.

Defensive back Micah Hyde (knee) is probable for Week 3, while fellow defensive back Casey Hayward is questionable with a glute injury. Linebacker Brad Jones is the only player ruled out on defense, as he deals with a quadriceps injury.  


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.

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: 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.

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.
