Oh well at least it happened early. He probably wasnt going to do much this year anyway. Now he gets a red shirt year to bulk up and be more prepared. Also gives a shot to Janis or another of our 2nd year guys. Lol at firing the head coach cause a guy that gets hurt a lot got hurt.

These injuries are THE BIGGEST obstacle keeping us from winning world championships.

Mike has FAILED to protect his players. No accountability for the training staff. No accountability for the defensive staff. Continued lulls on offense.

He's NOT getting it done.

Yeah, not much except return punts and probably kick offs.

There's a silver lining in this potentially bad news. As much as everyone wants to see Abby do well as an in-stater, he was way too weak as an NFL player. Now, as steve pointed out he'll have a chance to just focus on his body which is where he needs to be focused. He's smart and just gets it so he really isn't going to lose too much by not playing. He'll get stronger because he'll be rehabbing like crazy.

The other upside is Kevin Dorsey has been raved about...lots of positive vibes about him. Maybe, Kevin doesn't make the team if Abbrederis is healthy? Now, it gives Harper, Janis and Dorsey better odds of making the team. We may find a stud out of that group who would've been cut had Abbrederis been healthy.

No way you can blame MM, Ted Thompson or anyone for a guy's knee popping. Stuff happens...it's just unfortunate it always seems to be happening to the Packers regardless of what they try to do different.

dont buy into their BS.

these injuries are brought on by Mike McCarthy just to give us an excuse for underperforming.

its his plan for his next contract extension, so when they ask why we have not done shit since 2010, he can just point at the injuries.

Dude needs to step up and protect his players.

No accountability for the defensive staff, no accountability for the trainers.

This from Family Night article in Headlines:

Questions for Mark Murphy

Is massage therapy being utilized for the players and, if not, why?

Yes, Stacey, we absolutely use massage therapy for our players. It is one of many options we provide to our players to help them stay flexible and healthy. The massages are typically provided on off days. During the first week of training camp, the players were given the day off on Tuesday and we had several massage therapists in our facility to work with the players. Yoga is also very popular with our players. In addition, you may have read that we recently hired a nutritionist, Adam Korzun, to insure our players are eating healthy. We also have a chiropractor, Dr. Michael Zoelle, who comes to Lambeau Field regularly to work with many of our players.


What else is needed? This is a serious question.

With the new rules, seems to me, the players need to take it upon themselves to work out year round, and to be in the best shape possible before camp opens.

Accountability should start with the players.

The Packer organization is making all this available to the players, these are grown men, if they don't take advantage of these options, then how can you hold Mike and the training staff accountable?

Injuries are going to happen, the odds should be turning in The Packers favor.

Abbrederis may have caught a bad break, but as Dakota T mentioned, could be a blessing in disguise, a year on IR, a chance to work with the strength coaches may not be a bad thing.

I need to bump this guy off and take his job ;)

And Ill state this - they need to get a chiro there that works there and thats it. All these dudes with bulged discs in their LB and Neck. Probably a chiro that just stops in and adjs a few peeps isnt going to help with potential ACL injuries, hammy injuries etc etc ...
Unless he is a dedicated chiro that is into that stuff.

and ya ACL injuries can be prevented - Im not an expert but like I mentioned last month - went to a seminar where they talked about this very thing and they stated were having talks with the denver broncos staff.

How's that working out?

Maybe Abby's knee will be ok. Maybe this constant string of devastating injuries will subside this year. We don't know. BUT, what do you all BELIEVE, in your gut? Are we going to be fielding yet another JV team in the playoffs this year? If so, it's going to be due to excessive injuries. We won the SB despite this bullshit, not because we were healthy.

Not good enough.

Quote:
Abbrederis injury update: You won't see rookie receiver Jared Abbrederis on the field (although he may be in attendance), but we should learn more about his knee injury.

Indications are that the fifth-round pick from Wisconsin sustained a torn ACL, although he was awaiting another round of tests to be sure. If those tests confirm such, he will need season-ending surgery.

How could the injury be due to any type of negligence on the Packers part? Even if this was preventable through alternative maintainance, he has only been with the for team a couple weeks worth of work.

The fault would be on what he did previously to neglect his knees so bad that his ACL popped. Any rookey blowing out a knee in camp wouldn't be the training staff's fault. It would be the college staff's.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

It's pretty uncanny, though.
