Cole Madison suffers torn ACL

The offensive lineman is out for the remainder of the season. 

It's never good when you see a guy pop up on the injury report in the middle of the week, usually indicating that the player in question suffered an injury during practice. 

It's even worse when the coach is asked about it and he responds that his heart breaks for the player. 

Unfortunately, that's the sequence of events that played out over the last 24 hours, culminating in a report that offensive lineman Cole Madison did indeed tear his ACL during practice this week.

Here's hoping he has a clean recovery and is back at it next season.

Another setback for this kid, I hope he recovers well and makes it back I think he has the tools to be successful.

Really unfortunate to hear this. I don’t think it impacts Packers this year as I don’t think he’s seen the field much. However, might hurt his long term future. Hope he recovers and gets the chance to show what he can do.

Sad to here, but you cannot miss what you never used and if Madison was at any time able to contribute, there were numerous times via the OL play for him to get some snaps this season.

It hurts practice reps in preparation for games. His being out brings more reps to the starters and may add to their wear and tear. I wish the young man the best and a speedy recovery!

Hurts both the Packers and the young man. Packers with their tight salary cap was looking at Madison to slide into the starting line up next season (if ready) or be one of their core swing OL. For the same reason it hurts to lose Adam Taylor, Madison has the ability to play across the line. Now both players are in rehab and might be iffy till the middle of next season. Short term, better hope there are no more major injuries inside the O line, cause the Packers have no practical replacements at this point in the season. (Light is still a body as Rodgers sliding away and running away from his side proves. Future yes, Now, fresh meat for hungry OLB.) Middle term, well Tuner just got his option pickup and a certain RT agent just added a couple of years and few more zeros at the end of his next contract. Long term. Need more draft choices as Gutes to do list just got a bit longer...

Although Sportrac still shows Madison as an UFA in 2022, I thought the 2018 season would toll, and OTC agrees. Still, Madison now is losing the last 6 games of his rookie season. Bulaga made it back in time for the start of the next season, but it seems quite possible that Madison will start 2020 on the PUP list. At least he is under contract for 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Madison wasn't threatening Patrick's job as the backup center or Lane Taylor/Jenkins' role as backup OG. There was no evidence that the team tried him at RT. Gute will have to make up his mind about what to do about Taylor and RFA Patrick in March without knowing too much about Madison. It has to help their negotiating positions, if only modestly. Bulaga's too.

Draft year Packers ran Madison at both Tackle positions pre draft. Issue was who the the Packers have as replacements per starters via cap. Don't disagree with your take at all here. Question has always been, how much are the Packers willing to pay for known play level vs the future. Especially with the huge amount Murphy shelled out for Rodgers. That puts every veteran O lineman in play even if MLF wants them back, and makes Gutes job that much harder.
