    The undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State spent training camp with the team.

    I think Boyd is gone. The MRI revealed some additional ligament damage. I like Joe Thomas. Good to see him back over calling up Bradford.

    It makes sense. Before signing Thomas, they only had Matthews, Palmer, and Ryan at ILB. I think his taking Boyd's spot on the roster is a good guess.

    Boyd was officially put on IR.

    Good to have Thomas back, although I would have preferred more veteran experience at ILB, Palmer did ok last night.

    Wherever the team has some positional depth. If this unfortunate injury pace keeps up that could take care of itself by next Tuesday.

    I also prefer they have Lane Taylor give up his spot for Guion. IMO Gaston showed some potential and I'd rather not risk losing him to another team. Taylor apparently improved this season but going into his third season I think we know more about him. And the Packers do have Tretter and Walker (both of whom I like better and are more versatile than Taylor) but they may want to keep Taylor as insurance until Bulaga gets back.
