The Green Bay Packers have signed TE Jake Stoneburner and WR Myles White to the active roster from the practice squad, signed LB Victor Aiyewa to the practice squad, placed WR Randall Cobb on injured reserve – designated for return and placed G/C Greg Van Roten on injured reserve.
So

~ Van Roten is out for the year
~ Packers need to figure out who the back-up Center will be.

~ Cobb will be out for at least 8 weeks.

~And White and Stoneburner will be asked to help out on game day now.

So it looks like this is it. I suppose Ted Thompson could have done something more substantial, but all things considered - mainly meaning the schedule and what they know about Jones returning, I guess they think this is enough. I can't complain. We finished the Raven game with basically Nelson, Boykin, and Finley and no reserves. Now we have that and White and an additional pass catching TE and maybe Jones too. I think we can get by that way for 8 weeks or so.

Oh ya we'll be fine.

We had injuries last year where basicly we didn't have Nelson and Jennings for a good part of games. I think we can get by. But Finley has to step up. He has disappeared in spurts of games this year. I really wanna see him more involved. Hopefully this White kid and Boykin can contribute. I think Boykin has potential because of his size and speed. I think Rodgers was forcing it to him for that one part of the game, I'm really not gonna take anything away from Boykins production. One thing I really wanna see McCarthy try while they experiment with Recievers is to put Franklin on wheel routes, I bet it will open the field up like Sproles does for the Saints.

I agree, I want to see some tricks to get some of the other guys invovled.

Such as

~ Franklin, they made some plays for Alex Green, some of them where screens, other were a wide toss play which put Green on the edge right away giving him a stright shot at getting stright down field if the blocking was there. I think Franklin could do that as well (if he can hold onto the ball).

~ Bostick, he seemed like a very good receiver, the coaches said he's blocking isn't up to par for TE. With injuries at WR and them bringing up another TE can we get Bostick practing at WR and see how he does? If he does well maybe see him there in a game.

~ Quarless, Quarless can block but seems like he has a catching problem. But Mike McCarthy used him very well in 2010, using Quarless on TE screens. It seemed like Quarless could catch shot passes and turn them into quick/fast gains, almost like an over sized Cobb with less wiggle, worse hands but h had the quickness and straight line going for him. Also use him as a decoy deep to set up corssing pattern underneath him for a WR.
