Neal and Bishop Questionable For Sunday; Underwood Out

Neal and Bishop Questionable For Sunday; Underwood Out

The Packers listed Mike Neal and Desmond Bishop as questionable (50/50 chance of playing) for Sunday's game against the Eagles. They also ruled out Brandon Underwood, meaning rookie Sam Shields will most likely be the nickel corner, unless there is a surprise promotion of Pat Lee on the horizon. McCarthy said Neal and Bishop would be game-time decisions.

Losing Neal would be a blow to a defense that is looking for anything it can get when it comes to rushing the passer. The rookie out of Purdue has showed great promise pushing the pocket from inside and was being counted on to spell BJ Raji when defensive coordinator Dom Capers goes to his sub packages.

If Neal is ruled out, expect to see some Justin Harrell in the mix along with Ryan Pickett taking snaps in the nickel.

We'll see if Harrell can hold up. I would love to see that guy last a whole NFL season. Keep your fingers crossed.

It's about time he starts earning some of the millions the Packers have paid him.

Just watched Coach's presser, anyone have any info on Woodson's injury in practice?

Nevermind... jammed his toe.

Fitz, we're all counting on you to kiss the boo boo and make it better. :)

I'm mildly concerned, with his history of toe/foot/ankle issues. Of course, he also has established a history of playing through them since he arrived in Green Bay, so...

Just tell me that it isn't turf toe. Those take forever to heal.

Am I the only one that misses the GBP FOR LIFE at the end of every Fitz' comment?

No, no need for the shnizzle, occupying the entire webbrowser. But don't supress the personality, man.

I'm sure I'm gonna see it again once we beat the crap out of those SBless birdies.
