Packers Calendar: Injury Report Released Monday, All Eyes on Rodgers

Packers Calendar: Injury Report Released Monday, All Eyes on Rodgers

Because the Packers play a game on Thursday for Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions, they're required to release an atypical injury report on Monday afternoon, even though they won't practice.

The team basically states what a player's participation would be if they did practice, listing him as either limited, full or did not practice.

Attention will be heavily upon quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whose status is still in the air for Thursday. With the Packers more or less in must-win mode, Rodgers would give the team the best team to win, but they won't do so at the expense of his health.

The question is whether Rodgers' collarbone is sufficiently healed to withstand a direct hit.

Observers will also be watching status of several other injured players, including defensive lineman C.J. Wilson, who was injured in Sunday's tie against the Vikings, as well as players like cornerback Sam Shields, linebacker Nick Perry, defensive lineman Johnny Jolly and offensive lineman Don Barclay.

After coming up with two sacks in the Vikings game, linebacker Clay Matthews will be the player guest on Monday for Packers Live with Larry McCarren.

Packers Live is shown on a statewide network of seven stations, including NBC26 in Green Bay and TMJ4 in Milwaukee. Complete listings can be found on the Packers official website. The show is also shot in front of a live studio audience inside the Legends Club at 6:30 p.m. CT and open to the public.

Also at Lambeau Field, the Packers head coach will record his weekly Mike McCarthy Show at 4:00 p.m. inside Lambeau Field on the 4th Floor Associated Bank Club level in front of a studio audience, but the show won't air on television until Tuesday. Linebacker A.J. Hawk will be the guest.

Prior to his television show, McCarthy will discuss Sunday's game in a press conference with the local media at 3:00 p.m., which will be streamed live on the team's official website.

At 5:30 p.m. on Monday evening, Inside the Huddle airs on Fox 11 in Green Bay, hosted by wide receiver Jordy Nelson.

Inside the Huddle appears on a statewide network of television stations on other days of the week with the entire schedule listed at It is recorded in front of a live audience at The Bar in Green Bay.

In other Packers television programming, the Locker Room Show airing at 6:30 p.m. on CBS affiliate WFRV channel 5 in Green Bay, will have cornerback Micah Hyde on as a guest, according to the station's website.

The show airs in front of a live studio audience at Purcell's inside The Radisson in Green Bay.

Over in Appleton, wide receiver Jarrett Boykin is the guest on Clubhouse Live, held at the Clubhouse Sports Bar & Grill in Appleton in front of a live studio audience and streamed online at

If it's not the players that are injury-prone, given that it's different players every season, and it's not the coaching staff, that tries different approaches every season and is always mindful of injuries, and it's not the S&C coaches, since they've shuffled it, and it's not the medical staff, that's one of the best in sports, then, folks, that leaves only one possible explanation:

Ghosts. Ghosts and curses. Dan Devine's spirit is roaming Lambeau Field and injuring the players.

I don't think it's fair to blame the ghosts for anything at this point.

There's still talent on the roster, but most of our really scary ghosts are on Incorporeal Reserve. The ghost team is so depleted that the front office has resorted to picking up street spirits, Arena shades, and scraping whatever it can out of the ectoplasm bin. So far all of those pickups have proven to be JAGs.

You can't expect solid haunt coverage or big scare-ability out of Just-Another-Ghost. You need play-makers.

Until this team gets healthy it's not going to scare anyone. Too much Casper, not enough Poltergeist.

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

Looks like the Jolly injury might be the most important of all. Would be nice to have Sam Shields back though. I don't think ARod plays Thursday. It's only been 3.5 weeks.

Did Richardson actually get some time at safety yesterday?

the guys on the live blog said he did, but I didn't see the game

When did Newhouse become spokesman for the O-Line? Just read the SI story & Newhouse quotes are everywhere about #12.

How about Marshall "Edward" Newhouse focusing on your blocking & not getting beat like an old Mule...although the Mule might be quicker.

According to, Newhouse ranked as the worst pass-blocking offensive tackle from Week 11. PFF ranked Newhouse 53rd out of the 53 tackles who played last week in its Pass Blocking Efficiency rating...Week 12 will rate him 55th of 53 with any two street FA better than him...

I wish a reporter would ask MM directly, why not Sherrod instead of Newhouse?

Why not just bring all those on the practice squad up, were going to need all of them real soon. Not sure I have ever seen so many key players injured.

I'm not sure you understand how rosters work.

If Rodgers is anything less than 100.000%, they're not sending him out there. We have 10 days off after Thursday's game. And the worst-case scenario (albeit most likely) is that we'll be a game and a half out of first place in the division.

We all know how they are when it comes to bringing guys back from injury. And I'm sure McCarthy thinks we can run the table once we get Rodgers back, no matter how badly the defense continues to look...
