GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers left guard Josh Sitton offered three words to sum up Johnny Jolly.

"He's all in," Sitton said after Thursday's practice.

That's why it took no one by surprise that Jolly was back on the field that morning, less than 24 hours after injured an ankle near the end of Wednesday's practice. When you've been banished from the NFL for three seasons, served prison time and fought a drug addiction, what's a little ankle sprain?



Quote:

There's been so much roster turnover since Jolly last played in an NFL game (Jan. 10, 2010 in an NFC wild-card playoff game at Arizona), that the Packers now have plenty of other options. Younger options. Of the nine other defensive linemen in camp with the Packers, only two -- Ryan Pickett and B.J. Raji -- were even with the Packers the last time Jolly was an active player.

At this point, Jolly may rank only seventh-best among the team's defensive linemen in camp. Last year, the Packers opened the season with just six on their 53-man roster and dressed only five in Week 1.

Even if he doesn't find a roster spot with the Packers, I am very happy that he has taken his rehabilitation seriously and going to make the best out of the situation that he created. I think he'll find a roster spot in the league come week 1.

I've got a feeling the Raiders (with former Packers) guys with grab him ASAP... I think they lost their top DL and need help badly there... and he'd know QB Matt Flynn, DE Jason Hunter and S Woodson.

And not just the players, but was McKenzie involved with getting Jolly into GB?

Good point.

Not going to happen, though. I am predicting right now that, absent a major injury, Jolly will make the GB active roster for week 1.

Also Raiders are trying to get young, but hey if Jolly is cheap and better than what they got, they might take him as a stop gap FA.

Which 6 or 7 DL guys do you have making it? Normally the Packers only keep 6 DLs, but with 4 of them being FAs and working Neal at OLB some, I think they might keep 7 this year.

Haven't given it much thought yet, actually, since I haven't seen any video yet. I just have a sense that Jolly will be one of them.

Off top of my head: Pickett and Jones are locks. Raji, too, though I wish we had better and more consistent.
