D.J. Smith - left stadium in a full leg cast. left on crutches
Nick Perry - left stadium in sweat pants
Sam Shields - kicked in the shin
Brandon Saine - McCarthy says he thinks its serious. left on crutches

Any others injured that I missed? I'm thinking Smith is the only serious injury.

I could have sworn I saw Saine in the backfield after he was carted to the lockeroom.

MM will probably go over more injuries today or give a little more explaination. Very sad to hear about DJ Smith :(

Saine and Smith are probably going to be done for the season or at least miss some significant time, which is too bad. Perry and Shields were probably just caution moves with the game well in hand. At most they probably just miss a couple of weeks after getting nicked up.

It's too bad Grant signed with the Redskins even if he's not nearly as good as he used to be. He could have at least provided some depth and is familiar with the offense. The Packers currently have no active RB's on the practice squad, so it wouldn't shock me if they brought some guys in for a try out or plucked a RB off another team's practice squad if they have to IR Saine. Green is the only healthy 100% RB we have right now and I know Starks is getting pretty close.

We have okay depth at LB even with probably losing Smith for the season. If it ends up being anything like 2010, the defense will definitely have that next man up mentality. Overall they're playing much better than a year ago even if they've been somewhat inconsistent so far this season.

Okay...who is up at MLB then? Brad Jones?

I didn't get a chance to see who came in for Smith after he went down, but it's probably going to be Francois, Lattimore, or Jones. Even if there isn't a guy who has a lot of starting experience amongst them, they've been around for awhile and know the defense pretty well. I wouldn't expect a huge drop off at Smith's position if he's lost for the season.

Walden can definitely fill in for Perry for a couple of weeks assuming his injury needs some time to heal.

Terrell Manning

But yeah probably gonna be Jones up next. If we had questions about Smith in coverage, I'm really worried about a guy that has been playing OLB dropping back.

That was a dirty play when Smith got hurt. He was completely out of the play when the Texans' lineman blindsided him, which buckled his leg underneath of him. There should've been a flag on that play and also I hope he gets a heavy fine. That can end a player's career, or greatly shorten it. It's very unfortunate because this was a great opportunity for DJ Smith to show us what he's got.

I hope Perry's injury isn't as serious as it looked. I'm glad he was able to walk off under his own power, but then again so did Brian Cushing last week, and he has a torn ACL.

I was very impressed with Alex Green last night, especially against a good defense like Houston's. Our OLine did very well against them too though, so they should get a lot of the credit. James Starks didn't look too happy on the sideline that he wasn't getting any playing time.

Brad Jones was pretty good in coverage at OLB, his main problem seem to be, he just wasn't very good in pass rushing or containment. ILB might be a lot better position for Jones and I thought he played pretty well there.

Im looking forward to see whatelse we have a ILB, too me Smith looked short, slow and chubby when on the field.
He might be the best we have, but i doubt the drop off is significant.

In such a great game the injuries were a real downer. I had to get up and leave the room each time. We could use a little luck with Perry and Shields.

Beast, I thought Brad Jones played well after Smith went down too. Really nice surprise. Wow, if this player pans out as the starting MLB alongside Hawk, it would be remarkable. I had pretty much given up on him, but man, really liked his play at MLB Sunday night. He has a totally different quality as a MLB. Jones has got some speed, and some length. This could be really good.

As Matthews said, the NFL needs to start protecting defensive players like they do offensive players.
It shouldn't matter which side of the ball you are on.

The cut block should have been outlawed in the game way before the insulation within the invisible bubble wrapping of the Quarterback. That single block has taken out many a player.. sure knees today can be fixed, but the guts of a football team plays in the box. Protect them.

Get cut once.. and you will want to rip the guys facemask off and shove it down his throat. Chicken shit.

Missed one. ;)

Packers RB Alex Green was limited in Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.
Green wasn't known to be hurt, but coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday he'll continue to carry a "full load," so his injury must be extremely minor. Green has a tough matchup in the Rams' improved run defense, but his expected workload makes him a solid flex option.

Yeah,that was a cheap shot and unnecessary. Hope that dude feels bad about himself for that. When I saw the replay it really pissed me off. Surprised more people haven't mentioned something about it.
