That opens a roster spot... Daniel Muir anyone?

http://profootballtalk.n...-with-ability-to-return/

Quote:
With a bunch of injuries creating uncertainty on the roster heading into their trip to Houston this weekend, the Packers made a move to open up a roster spot on Wednesday.

Coach Mike McCarthy announced that running back Cedric Benson has been placed on injured reserve as a result of the foot injury he picked up against the Colts in Week Five. Benson has been given the designation to return, so he will be eligible to start practicing with the team in six weeks and could play again in eight weeks if his foot has healed up enough to allow it. That’s about the same amount of time it is believed Benson will need to heal up so the move doesn’t have much downside for the Packers.

I would bring him in too. Don't know why we didn't keep him over some guys like Sean Richardson or Lattimore or dare I say a 6th Reciever?? Not knocking any players, but he would of and can be a great backup to Raji. Ecspecially for Raji's injury woes.

Guy Lawrence DE is on the practice squad. Could be a choice if Raji isn't playing, or Borel if Jennings isn't going to make it or Bostick. I don't see them going outside the practice squad.

This also could be a move that would open a spot for Quarless, Sherrod or Zombo to come back also.

I would rather see whats on the market rather than those guys. Honestly our TE and LB cores are fine, and idk how much Sherrod would be an improvement other than depth plus he is coming off a broken leg. Lawrence Guy could help us, but I fear he'll just be buried on the depth chart... Lets see if Ted Thompson can find another Erik Walden.

Dline depth is what we would need the most IMO, with Raji questionable.

Quick call up Goodell and get Johnny Jolly reinstated.

I like the thought, but it'd be awhile before he was ready.

Not resigned. The next game would fit his talents.. anchor a spot and dare them to move you. Beyond that.. he was used up. Not much in terms of push last season.

Free Agent though.

Hell, being out of shape might be better. Just lay his fat ass in the middle with some purple drank. Make them go around.

Put it that way, I'd be willing to do it myself for the league minimum. lol

There was discussion on the radio today that Benson's veterans minimum contract would be reduced by about $500K (from about $850K to $350K) if he went on IR. Don't know if the designation to return affects that, but this may be an expensive IR for Benson.

Why don't we resign the guy we cut to bring back Mike Neal?

We cut Merling to bring Neal back before the Colts game. He got a sack. I can't wait to see what he can bring the rest of the season.

right. So with all the guys harping to get more DL depth, why not bring him back now that we have a spot for him again?

I meant that we already brought Neal back. And he played in the Colts game.
If you meant Merling, I think we can do better.. He wasn't productve even in a backup role. That's why we cut him.

i'm still confused as to why we cut Muir, my untrained eyes thought he was pretty good in the preseason.. he made a couple plays that he was noted for if I recall... much more than Merling anyway.

personally, I'd like to see us pick up some OL depth, because we have none at all.
