Authentic Youth Ty Montgomery #88 Jersey-Packers NFL Shop

The Green Bay Packers lost running back Ty Montgomery to broken ribs on their first possession Thursday night, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter. There is not immediate timetable for how much time Montgomery will miss.

The NFL Network first reported Montgomery’s injury.

No NFL running back had played more snaps this season than Montgomery and no Green Bay Packers’ skill position player had touched the ball more during the first three games in 2017.

Entering Week 4, Montgomery had played 23 more snaps than the second-most-used back, Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott, and had 39.6 percent of the Packers’ touches, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The next-highest Packers player was receiver Randall Cobb with 10.7 percent.

Montgomery was off to a strong start with 28 yards on five carries in the first six plays from scrimmage. He came into the game with a wrist injury he sustained in Sunday’s win over the Bengals.

It was 11 months ago against the Bears when Montgomery made his first start as a running back after converting from receiver. He had two big games against Chicago last season with 10 catches in the game at Lambeau Field and 162 yards rushing later in the season at Soldier Field.

Rookie fourth-round pick Jamaal Williams replaced Montgomery but left early in the second quarter because of a knee injury. Williams’ return is questionable.

With Williams sidelined, the Packers turned to Aaron Jones, who hadn’t played from scrimmage entering the game.

Authentic Nike Womens David Bakhtiari #69 Jersey Sale Cheap

Here’s how bad the Packers’ offensive line situation looks on the eve of Thursday’s game against the Chicago Bears: They might have to start someone who’s been with them for three days or play one or more of their guards at the all-important tackle spots.

Preferred starting tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) both were listed as doubtful on the final injury report Wednesday. The Packers’ top three backup tackles all are on injured reserve. Kyle Murphy, who started the season opener at right tackle in place of Bulaga and the last two games at left tackle for Bakhtiari, this week joined Jason Spriggs and Don Barclay on IR.

Coach Mike McCarthy will have to decide whether to try tackle Ulrick John, who was signed Tuesday after Murphy sustained a foot injury, or shuffle two of his guards — either starters Lane Taylor and Jahri Evans or backups Lucas Patrick, Justin McCray or Adam Pankey — to the outside.

Taylor might be the best option at left tackle because at least he plays on the left side of the line as the starting left guard. Patrick could then jump in at Taylor’s spot.

McCray then likely would be the best option at right tackle. He played exclusively at guard and center all preseason but made his first NFL start in Week 2 against Atlanta at right tackle. He also filled in Sunday after Bulaga reinjured his right ankle. Patrick is a guard/center by trade, while Pankey played tackle in college at West Virginia but transitioned to guard this summer after he was signed as an undrafted free agent.

“It’s definitely not a position you want to be in,” Bakhtiari said. “Technically, you have your five tackles all banged up right now. That’s not something you want to see. We’re a team at the end of the day. We believe in the philosophy of next man up. Regardless if a guy’s out there and he’s banged up, he’s got to perform.”

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a beating last week, getting sacked six times by the Bengals. According to ESPN Stats & Information, it’s the first time he’s ever won a game while getting sacked six or more times.

At least Rodgers should have all of his receivers if he has any time to throw. Randall Cobb (chest) was removed from the injury report after missing the game Sunday.

The Packers ruled out cornerback Davon House (quad) for the second straight week. Two other defensive players, Mike Daniels (hip) and Nick Perry (hand), were listed as questionable.

Authentic Womens Aaron Rodgers #12 Jersey

Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers teammates are asking fans at Lambeau Field for Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears to join them in linking arms during the national anthem.

Most of the Packers’ players did that on the sideline before Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, though three players — Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks and Kevin King — sat on the bench.

Most of the Packers with their arms linked but Lance Kendricks, Martellus Bennett and Kevin King were seated.

In a statement released by the players Tuesday night, the team said that players, coaches and staff will join together with arms intertwined to represent a coming together of people who want freedom, equality, tolerance, understanding and justice for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly.

The statement, which noted that the NFL family is one of the most diverse communities in the world, and that the game of football brings people together, said that intertwining arms represents the many people who not only helped to build the country but who will continue to build a country that is more fair and just.

Rodgers said it’s not a protest.

“This is about equality,” Rodgers said Tuesday. “This is about unity and love and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people. But we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity, and this week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well and come together and show people that we can be connected and we can grow together.”

It sounds as if all the players — even the ones who sat during the anthem on Sunday — will participate after they held a meeting to discuss it.

“I think it was Marty’s idea,” said Kendricks, who said he sat during the anthem to bring awareness to people in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria. “Aaron spoke first and he kind of laid it out and laid out the fact that he’s on our side and he understands the message being conveyed and trying to get across. And then Marty wrote a statement and in the statement he said we’re going to lock arms and he’s going to challenge the fans to lock arms as well, so it kind of puts them in a position where it’s like, ‘Look you’re either going to unite with us or you’re not.’ I think that’s really cool because it puts them in a position where it’s like now we’re talking to you, so you make a decision, peacefully make a decision.”

Rodgers called the team meeting about it “fantastic.”

“We kind of talked about a lot of things — things I’m not going to talk about because it’s meant for just the locker room — but I think there’s been a great sense of unity and love and support in this locker room, guys coming together,” Rodgers said. “Outside the building, I think the message has been diluted a little bit and it’s been kind of taken away from what we were trying to do: show a united front, guys linking up together. There’s been a lot of hatred on my social media, probably other people’s social media as well. Frankly don’t understand it, a lot of it.”

2017 Cheap David Bakhtiari Home Game Jersey-Packers NFL Shop

With their top three offensive tackles on the injury list — and two others already on injured reserve — the Packers will sign Ulrick John off the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad, his agent told ESPN.

The move is a sign the Packers have serious concerns about the availability of Bryan Bulaga (ankle), David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Kyle Murphy (foot).

All three were on Monday’s injury report, leaving their status for Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field up in the air.

“It’s a tough situation for them,” said John’s agent, Leonard Roth. “They might even have him active for the game.”

Bulaga, who missed the first two weeks, could not finish Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He dropped out after 47 of the 70 snaps and was replaced by Justin McCray, who started the Week 2 game at Atlanta. Bakhtiari was inactive for the second straight week. Murphy, who started Week 1 in place of Bulaga and the past two games at left tackle, showed up on the injury report Monday even though he finished Sunday’s game.

The Packers did not practice on Monday but were required to submit an estimated participation level because they’re playing on Thursday. Of the three tackles, only Bakhtiari would have practiced, and it would have been on a limited basis. Two other tackles, Jason Spriggs (hamstring) and Don Barclay (ankle), are on injured reserve.

“When you have one position that gets hit by it, maybe it has something to do with playing Chicago on Thursday night,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “Last year it was the running backs. This year it’s the tackles. So, you just work through it. Frankly, we’re still working through it. … There’s still some testing that’s being done. But yeah, it’s a work in progress.”

John started three games for the Cardinals last season at right tackle. He appeared in two games in 2015 for Miami but has no ties to the Packers or their offensive system.

The Packers will have to clear a roster spot on Tuesday for John. They made one move on Monday, when they placed veteran long-snapper Brett Goode on injured reserve and signed Taybor Pepper, who was with the team during the offseason program.

Goode finished Sunday’s game against the Bengals, snapping a perfect ball on Mason Crosby’s 27-yard game-winning field goal in overtime despite suffering a hamstring injury earlier in the game. A source said Goode could return in four weeks, but the Packers had so many injuries that they couldn’t afford to keep him on the roster. Green Bay was preparing tight end Richard Rodgers to snap on Sunday if Goode couldn’t go.

“I can’t say enough about him pushing through,” McCarthy said. “This is part of being on a short week and this is one thing we were hoping wasn’t going to be as bad as we thought it was going to be after the game, but after the examination today this was the direction we had to go.”

Nike Authentic Aaron Rodgers Packers Jersey Sale Cheap

Take that, Tom Brady.

Aaron Rodgers did Sunday what the New England Patriots quarterback did three hours earlier.

It’s what MVP quarterbacks do.

And Rodgers might have even one-upped Brady.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback engineered a game-tying drive and a game-winning one, and it was vintage free-play Rodgers.

First, he threaded the needle like only he seems to do on a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson that barely skimmed by the fingers of Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick with 17 seconds left in regulation.

Then, in overtime, when the Bengals jumped offside on third down, Rodgers made them pay with a 72-yard pass to Geronimo Allison for a catch and run that set up Mason Crosby’s 27-yard game-winning field goal. When Crosby’s kick went through the uprights in the south end zone to win it 27-24, it was the only time the Packers led all game.

Remarkably, it was Rodgers’ first overtime win. He came in 0-4 in regular-season overtime games and 0-7 overall including the playoffs. Other than the 2009 wild-card playoff loss at Arizona, when Rodgers fumbled, most of those were hardly his fault. He had thrown only six overtime passes in those seven overtime games.

It also was the first time Rodgers won in a game in which he was sacked at least six times. He had been 0-6 in such games.

A loss would have put the Packers at 1-2 for the fourth time in Rodgers’ career as a starter. That would’ve left a gloomy outlook considering how beat up the Packers are and their short week ahead — their next game is Thursday night against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers’ heroics made his first pick-six in more than seven years a footnote to this game and not what defined it.

Now, perhaps defensive tackle Mike Daniels, outside linebacker Nick Perry, cornerback Davon House and inside linebacker Jake Ryan will be back on Thursday. And perhaps left tackle David Bakhtiari and receiver Randall Cobb will return.

Either way, the Packers avoided a potential early-season crisis thanks to Rodgers.

2017 Womens Authentic Nike Mike Daniels Jersey Shop

Mike Daniels either misspoke or slipped up. If it’s the former, then there’s a chance the Green Bay Packers’ standout defensive tackle will play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. If it’s the latter, then his hip injury will keep him out of a game for the first time since his rookie year of 2012.

When asked about the opportunity to play in the same game as one of his idols, Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins, Daniels said Friday: “Gosh, I was looking forward to that.”

Daniels was among seven Packers listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report.

Daniels has been studying the Bengals’ Pro Bowler for years thanks to some advice from his former Iowa teammate, Ravens guard Marshal Yanda.

“You should watch Geno Atkins; you two are similar,” Daniels said of Yanda’s message. “That’s what I learned. A lot of respect for him. He’s possibly one of my favorite players in the NFL, so definitely a lot of respect for him, and I’ve learned a lot from watching him.”

Atkins is the perfect model for Daniels. They’re both considered undersized — Atkins at 6-foot-1 and Daniels at 6-0 — and both came into the league as unheralded fourth-round picks.

“It’s a short-guy movement,” Daniels said. “It is. We all have each other’s back. It’s not a lot of back to have.”

Sunday’s game was supposed to feature two of the premier interior defensive linemen in the league — regardless of height — until Daniels’ hip flared up and knocked him out of last Sunday’s game at Atlanta. The problem first arose last week in practice just as Daniels was coming off perhaps the most dominant game of his career — a 1.5-sack, seven-tackle performance in the opener against the Seahawks.

“Trust me, that’s been in my head,” Daniels said.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis sees the similarities, too.

“Those guys all play with great leverage,” Lewis said. “You watch Daniels play up there, you watch Aaron Donald, Geno. When we picked Geno in 2010 and then he became a full-time starter in 2011 and things took off, everybody said, ‘Oh, the guy can do it. He doesn’t have to be 6-foot-4 to do this.’ They play with great leverage, they have great motors and extension and they’re good knee benders.”

Daniels on Friday wasn’t ready to rule himself out. Neither was Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

“I think that that group of guys that haven’t practiced yet, we’re going to give them the week to go through,” McCarthy said Friday. “I’d put Mike right in the same category as Randall [Cobb]. We’ll see what the next two days [bring] … It will clear up for us tomorrow.”A

Cheap Nike Nick Perry Packers Jersey For Sale

For the second straight year, Nick Perry will need hand surgery.

The Green Bay Packers outside linebacker will undergo the operation this week, coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday. Last year, Perry missed two games in December after he underwent surgery to have multiple screws placed into several broken fingers on his left hand.

McCarthy wouldn’t say whether it was the same hand this time, but a source said the injury was much less severe and was only to treat one finger. Perry finished Sunday night’s game at Atlanta with no apparent problem, playing 53 of 58 defensive snaps, including the final one of the game, but he showed up on the injury report Wednesday.

When Perry returned last season, he played with a large club cast on his surgically repaired hand and was still effective. He had two sacks in his Week 16 return and another in the regular-season finale to post a career-high 11 sacks.

“Until we get through the surgery, I don’t really have a timeline for you,” McCarthy said.

The Packers gave Perry a five-year, $60 million contract this offseason in a move that was viewed as an injury risk given his history. If Perry misses Sunday’s game against the Bengals, it will ensure that he fails to play in all 16 games for the sixth straight season since the Packers drafted him No. 28 overall in 2012.

“He’s a violent football player,” McCarthy said. “He’s physical. He plays the game the right way. If you look at his play style, I mean that’s really part of his game, the violence that he plays with, with his hands.”

Perry was one of 13 players listed on the Packers’ injury report after Wednesday’s practice.

The Packers expect to get back outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who missed the Atlanta game after he sustained a concussion in the regular-season opener. Brooks, who signed with the Packers the week of the opener, cleared the protocol and was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.

“Great to have him back,” McCarthy said. “I think he’s a great fit for what we’re doing. … So his role will definitely be bigger this week.”

Cheap Authentic Bryan Bulaga #75 Jersey From NFL Shop

Maybe the Green Bay Packers’ injury situation isn’t as bad as their injury report looks.

Yes, the Packers had 13 players listed — including both starting offensive tackles and their two veteran receivers — but with right tackle Bryan Bulaga and receiver Jordy Nelson back on the practice field, Sunday’s game against Cincinnati might not be littered with as many backups as the Packers originally feared.

In fact, both Bulaga and Nelson sounded more than mildly optimistic about their chances.

“Today obviously it feels a lot better than it did on Sunday night,” Nelson said after Wednesday’s practice. “Everything’s headed in the right direction.”

Nelson was listed as a full participant in practice. He dropped out of Sunday night’s loss at Atlanta after he took a knee to his right quadriceps on the Packers’ first series. Nelson called his injury a charlie horse. He tried to return against the Falcons. He rode an exercise bike on the sideline and tried to jog but said it swelled significantly and he couldn’t run full speed or stop and start. He had no such problems on Wednesday.

“Feel good — better than what probably I think I and some other people in this building thought I would, so we’re progressing the right way,” Nelson said. “It was great to get back out there and run around, and everything felt good.”

It was the same for Bulaga, who missed the first two games because of his Aug. 23 ankle sprain in practice. Like Nelson, he was a full participant in practice. His return was complicated last week by a bad case of the stomach flu.

“Just didn’t think the ankle was quite there yet,” Bulaga said Wednesday. “From a feeling standpoint, I felt better. I got over the flu or whatever it was, but just wasn’t there. We’re still taking it day by day, going with that approach. Today was a good step and we’ll go at it tomorrow and look at how it does overnight and reassess what we’ve got going on tomorrow.”

Barring setbacks, the Packers should have at least half of their starting tackles and half of their veteran receiving corps on Sunday against the Bengals. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and receiver Randall Cobb (chest) were among eight players who did not practice on Wednesday. The others were: safety Kentrell Brice (groin), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hip), cornerback Davon House (quad), linebacker Nick Perry (hand), linebacker Jake Ryan (concussion, hamstring) and tackle Jason Spriggs (hamstring).

The biggest concern among that group is Daniels, whose hip was an issue going into last week’s game. He didn’t make it out of the first quarter. The Packers on Wednesday brought back veteran defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois, who was released after Week 1, because of how thin they could be without Daniels.

Authentic #20 Kevin King Game Jersey Sale

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Kevin King didn’t think his NFL debut would consist of only six snaps on defense. Even after his snap count increased by 40 in Week 2, he’s still not sure what will happen next.

The Green Bay Packers’ top draft pick should expect his role in Week 3 against the Cincinnati Bengals — and beyond — to resemble the latter rather than the former.

The second-round cornerback put together a strong showing in Sunday’s 34-23 loss at the Atlanta Falcons. It was one of a couple of positive takeaways from an otherwise dispiriting loss for a defense that still hasn’t figured out how to slow down Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

King didn’t start against the Falcons, but it would be a shock if he didn’t have that job going forward.

“If anything, he’s earned the right to potentially play more,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “Smooth, confident athlete. He’s getting healthy and he looks comfortable out there. I like the progression that Kevin’s making.”

The 6-foot-3, long-armed, speedy cover man did exactly what the Packers hoped he would when they picked him at No. 33 overall in the draft. He ran with Jones, he broke up a pass and he tackled.

“I thought I was going to play a lot last week,” King said. “And next week I could play six snaps again, who knows? I didn’t come here to sit, so …”

The Packers turned to King before the first quarter was over. He replaced Damarious Randall at right cornerback. Randall returned late in the game after left cornerback Davon House sustained a quad injury. Randall and Quinten Rollins, the slot cornerback, both struggled. King, meanwhile, allowed just one completion — a 12-yard slant to Taylor Gabriel with 5:40 left in the game. He was targeted four other times, according to Pro Football Focus, and did not allow another completion.

“I thought Kevin did a good job,” defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. “I think he continues to grow, you know? We’re encouraged with his progress. He competes well. You saw him break up a couple balls on crossing routes. He’s not afraid to get up and challenge receivers, and I like his style of play.”

Injuries could determine some of what happens at cornerback. House said he does not believe his quad injury will be problematic; he likened it to a muscle cramp after the game. If that’s the case, then the Packers’ starting cornerback pairing likely will be House and King. McCarthy and Capers then will have to decide who to play in the slot between the struggling Randall and Rollins, or perhaps give rookie Lenzy Pipkins a shot. Pipkins, an undrafted free agent, has been inactive for the first two games.

Another second-round pick, safety Josh Jones, also saw his first extended action on defense after Kentrell Brice left Sunday’s game because of a groin injury.

“As we go along, you see these young guys [and] their reps increase based off of [them getting] more comfortable,” Capers said. “You want to be able to put them out there and have them have success. So I think Kevin, each step I think you’ll see him get more reps as we go along here. Josh Jones last night, I thought he went in and did a nice job. He played more snaps than what he’s played. Both of those guys, I think you’re going to see their reps increase.”

Said King: “I plan for a big role every week. I feel like I’m a starter whenever I step on the field.”

Womens Nike Randall Cobb #18 Jersey Packers NFL Shop

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson and Mike Daniels all appear to have avoided season-ending injuries after dropping out of Sunday night’s loss at the Atlanta Falcons, but all three Green Bay Packers playmakers likely will need all week to determine whether they can play against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Coach Mike McCarthy refused to give any injury details on specific players during a news conference Monday night.

“I don’t have anything for you on any of the players,” McCarthy said. “We’re still working through it. We got back at 3 a.m., so we had a lot of work to do.”

When asked whether he was concerned any of the injuries were season-ending, McCarthy said: “I don’t think I’ll be reporting on season-ending injuries, no.”

Nelson left during the Packers’ first drive because of a quad injury to his right leg and did not re-enter the game despite going through treatment and riding an exercise bike on the sideline. It’s the same leg that Nelson hurt in the 2015 preseason, when he tore his ACL and missed the entire season. This, however, is a soft-tissue injury.

So is Daniels’ ailment. The defensive tackle pulled his hamstring in the first quarter and also could not return.

Cobb sustained a shoulder injury early against the Falcons yet stayed in the game until he aggravated it in the fourth quarter. Cobb said it’s nothing like the right shoulder injury he suffered in the 2015 preseason, an injury that bothered him most of the season.

“I’ll be all right,” Cobb said as he walked out of the locker room in Atlanta on Sunday night.

The Packers had multiple soft-tissue injuries during the game. Cornerback Davon House (quad) and safety Kentrell Brice (groin) couldn’t finish the game, while guard Jahri Evans (groin) played through his injury.

McCarthy said at one point he looked at his bench and saw as many as 10 players either injured or getting treatment.

“Hopefully that’s our one game for this year,” McCarthy said of the injuries.

The Packers also were without their two starting offensive tackles, Bryan Bulaga (ankle) and David Bakhtiari (hamstring). The pair of veterans who have combined for 138 career regular-season starts were replaced by Kyle Murphy and Justin McCray, who previously had combined for one career start. They held up OK but were aided by a short passing game that prevented Aaron Rodgers from doing much in the vertical passing game.

Bakhtiari tested his injury before the game and said he likely will follow the same plan this week.

“We were just being smart,” he said. “It’s a decision that we thought was best for the team going into the game.”
