Packers putting Raven Greene on IR

The second year safety had been having a strong start to the season. 

During the third quarter of yesterday's game against the Vikings, Packers safety Raven Greene was injured during a Dalvin Cook run. He was taken to the locker room on a cart and later declared out for the remainder of the game. 

While head coach Matt LaFluer wouldn't go any further than to declare Greene out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the team has announced that Greene will indeed be heading to injured reserve. 

Greene was having a strong start to his second season and had become a very important part in Mike Pettine's defense as the third safety. It will be interesting to see how the Packers defense coordinator adjusts to his absence.

Tough luck, Greene was turning into a valuable part of this defense.

Our typical injury luck returns.

At least it's not the QB like for the Steelers & Saints.
Or one of our top 10 players...

Hopefully Ibrahiem Campbell is close to returning... he can fill that same spot with his skill set. And he's more experienced too.

True, I totally forgot about Campbell. Perhaps Pettine will change to a more traditional MLB like Goodson who is a recent pickup. But the team also claimed another DB so I think that we may still continue to go light at that position.

A trade for Minkah Fitzpatrick makes more sense now

You dont mortgage - Look at Pittsburgh - a first rounder ??? I believe that they Bears will be suffering at the trade with the Raiders for Mack. Now dont look what the Raiders do with the pick - look at what is available after and around when the pick ( they might do a lousy job). If you look at what TT did in his last few years - Passed on TJ Watt - and the guy isnt with the Pack now. We cut Taysom Hill and he is playing well. We refused to pay Micah Hyde. The league is sprinkled with guys . We let Tretter go and he is great - would have been great to have him on our Oline. When TT came he let a couple of Oline guys go and they were out of the league within a few years - that was good - but you can only live on your past victories for so long.

Injuries again plague the Packers and so early in the season. The loss of Greene is discouraging. He was playing well. No mention of how serious his injury is but being put on IR is not a good sign. Hopefully he will make a full recovery and come back stronger. I wish him nothing but the best of health. Get well soon Raven Greene.

I think Raven Greene is such a cool name for a football player.
Rooting for him to persevere through the rehab and come back strong as soon as possible.

According to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, the timeline for Greene’s injury is estimated at around ten weeks, which would make him a possibility to return late in the season. That time frame would put Greene back on the roster around week 13 ahead of the Packers’ game against the New York Giants.

The hit pissed me off. No reason for Smith to go low like that. Not surprised that it was a Viking though.

It would've been nice to get Fitzpatrick, but having that pick to use on the O-line or WR next year probably makes more sense.

Way to go Gute - You dont mortgage your future . Pittsburgh - a first rounder ??? I believe that they Bears will be suffering at the trade with the Raiders for Mack. Now dont look what the Raiders do with the pick - look at what is available after and around when the pick ( they might do a lousy job). If you look at what TT did in his last few years - Passed on TJ Watt - and the guy isnt with the Pack now. We cut Taysom Hill and he is playing well. We refused to pay Micah Hyde.

Not saying that - but if the next few drafts end up being loaded and if the Bears would have drafted more than 1 really good player in that spot - will it have been worth it? Especially if he tails off or gets injured. How many times has that happened?

Tretter would have cost a pretty penny with the market at the time. Lindsey was already under contract and it was a pick-em between the two. Thompson was a great GM who led a fine front office, and both Lindsey and Tretter along with the current O line is direct proof of that. And you want to whine about it? This is why the Thompson critics are not taking seriously. (shakes head) Teams lose players, period. Retirement, injury, trade, free agency pick one, it happens. Rebuilding is hard. Ted Thompson made it look easy for close to 7 years. Gute is building on Ted's building blocks, so far he is off to an amazing start. I hope he is just as good as Ted Thompson was over the course of his tenure as General Manager of the Green Bay Packers.

I still believe that not only did Ted run out of gas - but that the number of front office staff individuals that we lost to other teams over the years played a big part in the teams downward spiral. I think that the results speak for themselves - including those that I already have mentionned plus the number of draft picks in the last few years of Ted's tenure that have not panned out. If he is to get the credit for his earlier moves he needs to be able to take the debits for his later failures. Ted's mantra was that it was better to part with a player 2 years too soon than 2 years too late. But he had been demanding too much of a home team discount on too many really good players with a run ahead of them and holes on the team. Finally I was and still am a big supporter on the transition from Favre to AR - so dont put me into that naysayer box of individuals - but the results are to me quite obvious and Gute to date has done a good job spending more money and spending it more wisely these last 2 years.

Fair point. You and I will have to agree to disagree on Thompson. I will only say Thompson's actions are backed by the deep respect and envy by the vast number of owners and GM have for him over his tenure as Packer GM. The last three years are an ugly story of ego and an out of control Packer president that is only starting to leak out now. If Thompson had not stayed on, the translation to Gute might not have happened, and things could have been far worse than the Thursday night firing. My point on Thompson stands. IAMGUTE makes that case for him everyday as Packer General Manger.
