Packers Daily Links: Defensive Lineman Jordan Miller Signed to Roster

The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday promoted Jordan Miller from their practice squad to the 53-man roster. To make room, they released outside linebacker Vic So'oto. "If you want to read between the tea leaves, the transactions might signal outside linebacker Clay Matthews is healthy after missing the last four games with an injured hamstring," writes Bill Huber of Packer Report. "It also might signal defensive ends C.J. Wilson (knee) and Mike Neal (shoulder) will miss their third and second consecutive games, respectively." It's also interesting to note that Miller spent last season with the Bears and was with them during training camp last year as well. The Packers play the Bears on Sunday.

More on Jordan Miller comes from JSOnline, the Green Bay Press-Gazette, and the Associated Press.

During his weekly radio show on Tuesdays on the ESPN Radio affiliate in Milwaukee, quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked about the Packers running game that saw a good deal of success this past week against the Lions. Will it be able to keep it up against the Bears? “I think it’s kind of wait and see,” Rodgers is quoted as saying by host Jason Wilde at "How much impact could the last two weeks have on a Chicago team that likes to play a lot of two-high, split safety defenses?" The Packers have been taking what the opposing defenses give them. If they play with their safeties back, the Packers have been running the football more often.

Aaron Rodgers also talked about getting hit by Nick Fairley of the Detroit Lions, his own Lambeau leap and missing Will Farrell who was in attendance at Sunday's game.

Mike McCarthy and his positive approach to the game of football is detailed in a feature article by Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, including thoughts from several Packers players about their coach. "You'll never hear McCarthy say he's out to prove the doubters wrong," writes Nickel. "You'll never hear him vent his defenses to critics. One of his survival tactics is that he doesn't waste his energy on anything he perceives as negative." The Packers certainly made the right hire when they named McCarthy coach. He's different than many others in his profession, and different in a good way.

This week's Packer Plus publication includes articles on the Packers run game, the role players on the team, the Packers' success against the NFC North and a preview of the Bears game.

Scouting reports on the Bears come from the Journal Sentinel and Press-Gazette.

The return of Clay Matthews and Charles Woodson is key to creating turnovers, writes Tyler Dunne of JSOnline.

Packer Report focuses on the Packers running game and compares it other times in McCarthy's tenure.

The Lambeau Field clock gets its 15 minutes of fame, writes Jim Stingl of the Journal Sentinel.

The weekly Tuesdays with McCarthy feature is posted at the Packers official website.

The lack of a pass rush minus Clay Matthews is covered by Pete Dougherty at the Press-Gazette.

There was some leaky pass protection by Marshall Newhouse and Don Barclay last week, according to the Press-Gazette.

The matchup between Brandon Marshall and the Packers secondary gets some attention at Pro Football Weekly.

Mike Neal - how much time have the Packers wasted on this dude? Is he related to Justin Harrel? Can body builders be successful in the NFL? Just wondering.

I think this will be Neal's last chance. They can draft someone else, new blood. Pickett isn't getting any younger. Good thing they drafted Mike Daniels, he'll be a decent backup for a while.

Don't know, but Johnny Jolly is ready and willing if the commissioner ever hears his case.

Can we hire someone from the NYG front office to figure out how they continuously find studs for the DL?

No, but I bet he could crush your skull with a torn bicep.
