GREEN BAY, Wis. — When the Green Bay Packers boarded their plane bound for Seattle on Wednesday, they did so knowing their entire starting defense should be intact for Thursday's opener against the Seahawks.

That's because inside linebacker Brad Jones was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, according to the official injury report released by the team.

Jones, who missed the preseason finale because of a quardriceps injury, was listed as probable.


More bad news. lol

I'm still wondering how Richardson or Hyde might look at ILB... at least in a part time role... just wondering.

Some other teams (mainly 4-3 team) have taken a college Safety guy and had them gain some weight to play a speed LB role in the NFL. But if the Packers are going light and using more 4/5 man fronts looks with the OLBers being more agressive it might be interesting to see a speed LB in there like a big Safety.

If someone had Nancy Kerrigan-ed him they would have had a better chance to win.

Every time I watch him play I can't help but wonder why Ted invested $11 million in him.

I don't see his pay check so I can't say for sure. This is where I got the info.

Brad Jones signed a 3 year / $11.25 million contract with the Green Bay Packers, including a $3,000,000 signing bonus, $3,000,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $3,750,000

This concept of GB going smaller and quicker reminds me of the George Cumby era in GB. They had a lot of small quick players who couldn't block or tackle but they were fast right up to the time that The Fridge or someone else got a hold of them and knocked them on their rear.

Except they got smaller but they aren't small. They went more from abnormally large to normal size.
