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.

Packers DST can't corral Colin Kaepernick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.

Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.

Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.

The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.


Mike Neal suffers knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers outside linebacker Mike Neal suffered a knee injury in the first quarter against San Francisco. He made one tackle before leaving.

Sam Shields, Packers' top corner, carted off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers No. 1 cornerback Sam Shields suffered a knee injury early in the playoff game vs. the 49ers and was carted to the locker room. Shields got hurt making a tackle on receiver Michael Crabtree.

He was replaced by Davon House.


Clay Matthews ruled out for playoff game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) won't be able to play Sunday against the 49ers, coach Mike McCarthy said. The coach added he could not provide a timetable for Matthews, who also missed the regular-season finale.

Packers record late interception to clinch postseason spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Packers were not at their best, but managed to squeak by the Bears in Chicago in Week 17.

Green Bay had a hard time containing Chicago's running game, as Matt Forte gashed the defense for 110 yards on the ground. The defense also allowed two touchdowns and 226 yards passing from Jay Cutler. The Packers sealed the victory after Sam Shields picked off Cutler in the end zone on the final play of the game. The defense sacked Cutler once, forced two turnovers and allowed 345 yards of total offense in a 33-28 victory.

Green Bay will host the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs.
