GREEN BAY — When Sederrick Cunningham walked into the auxiliary locker room Saturday afternoon, his arm in a sling and his wrist in a cast, his fellow roster hopefuls were concerned. They'd seen the Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver get hurt during the first practice of training camp on Friday, and they were wondering when he was going to have surgery on his dislocated left wrist.

"I was like, 'I already had it,'" Cunningham said after Saturday's practice, in which two more rookie wide receivers — seventh-round picks Charles Johnson and Kevin Dorsey — also left with injuries.

"They check me in (to the hospital) immediately, had my surgery at like 4 or 5 o'clock. I'm sitting in a room looking outside a window. Then, 5:30, 6 o'clock I'm sitting back in my dorm room (at St. Norbert College). People were telling me, 'You should be asleep' and everything. I took some of the medicine, but I wanted to show the guys I'm not soft. I'm not soft at all. That's my biggest thing. I want to have the respect of the people in this locker room and the people upstairs. Letting them know that, hey, it's just a bump in the road."

This keeps up, I have a feeling DD's retirement isn't going to last very long.

With Cobb, Jones,Nelson,Boykin and Ross, the Packers are pretty solid, but if these rookies can't even stay on the field, The Packers may not feel real comfortable with just 5 experienced wr's.

1 guy fell awkward on his wrist and another landed awkwardly on his knee. The only way to prevent those would be for McCarthy to ban jumping and falling down at practice lol.

#Packers WR Charles Johnson suffered an IT band strain and will be fine. There's a good chance he'll practice Sunday, according to a source.

Right, And Dakota actually got one right too - don't even think about bringing back Driver.

Cunningham wasn't gonna be a factor anyway. I'm more glad to see Johnson and Dorsey playing instead of labeled out with mysterious or unknown problems like previously, than concerned about this kind of thing which is essentially just minor bad luck.

I love the close mindeness of some on this forum.

No way would Ted EVER call DD back!!!!

The guys I'm talking about are 7th rnd draft picks and UDFA's.

What happens if they continually get injured?

Everyday they miss is another day they get behind.

What happens if they don't get back on the field long enough to even learn how to play 1 wr position?

What happens if 1 or 2 of the top 5 guys go down with an injury keeping them out a couple of weeks?

You going into the regular season with 3 or 4 healthy wr's and an UDFA on your 53 man roster?

I think it's a good thing that The Packers have DD as an option if the injury bug hits the wr position.

As I stated the top 5 are solid and probably at the end of TC will be the only 5 wr's on the 53 man roster.

The UDFA's and 7th round draft picks are fighting for a spot on the PS, WHERE THEY CAN DEVELOPE.

Any of the top 5 go down in pre-season, I would much rather have DD come back and step in than have a guy that hasn't a clue what to do.
