This is unconfirmed and here are two tweets that somewhat contradict one another.


Granted, even if you have a torn ACL, you can still walk around, but why would you?



And Sir Jason Wilde has chimed in with good observation.

Seriously, they both were in with the doctors when Mike was holding the presser.

He had to tell the press 3 times he had not received an update.

Probably why it only lasted 5 minutes, they kinda pissed him off.

I'm not sure how Mike McCarthy is the blame for any injury, so if you could enlighten me, sure would help.

Hopefully the ACL report was just some reporter trying to scoop a story and got it all wrong.

We will all know soon enough,

I blame Ted Thompson for drafting these guys!!!!!

It's McCarthy's fault for not practicing ghost magic... Or something.

I think Nerd is joking otherwise I am a bit concerned. In any case, plenty of players are hurting their knees in the pre-season. Stuff like this will continue to rise the more the NFL fucks up the off-season and its practice schedules. In Jared's case, he needed conditioning anyway to continue to bulk up. He may have pushed himself too hard in the off-season, who knows. So many things are up in the air right now and we don't know if it is a tear yet. Could be but let's pray it's not for the kid's sake. He has undeniable talent.

A source told the Journal Sentinel that the diagnosis of the team's medical staff early Friday morning was a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The team was awaiting results of more diagnostic tests to confirm their original finding.



No bueno for the return game, and I think Cobb got a little more pricey if true.

According to http://www.biggerfasterstronger...ploads2/12_MarApr_14.pdf he "suffered a torn ACL in addition to breaking off the end of his femur. Head football and strength coach Dennis Moon says the injury was so severe that the doctors didn’t know if he would ever play football again. "

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.
