    Underwood could be done for the year:

    Underwood injury could be serious

    By Pete Dougherty
    pdougher@greenbaypressgazette.com

    SAN DIEGO – Safety Marviel Underwood sustained what might be a serious injury early in the Packers’ loss to San Diego in their exhibition opener Saturday night.

    Underwood’s knee buckled while he was trying to avoid a block on San Diego’s fourth play of the game. Underwood was in the starting lineup in place of injured Marquand Manuel.

    Underwood barely moved while on the ground after the injury and couldn’t put any weight on his right leg as he was helped from the field. Coach Mike McCarthy said he didn’t know the severity of the injury or whether Underwood had torn his anterior-cruciate ligament, which would be a season-ending injury. But Underwood had his leg heavily wrapped and was on crutches after the game.

    “He was on crutches. He was disappointed,â€

    OUCH! I had a feeling he was gonna become a big part of our "D". Huge blow if he's really done for the season.

    LOL@"David Martin injured his hamstring". Someone, somewhere, just won $10 calling that.

    Yeah. You would have thought The Organization would have called Orkin or something to try and get rid of it.

    He will be done for the season and that's a huge lost. He was our top backup. Keeping Roman would've been smart now especially with this lost. The only reason they let him go was because they felt safe with Underwood as the top backup. Now if Manuel or Collins goes down we have Tyrone Culver back there. A vet needs to be brought in.

    True that! I think Culver led the team in tackles(9).

    Carroll looks a bit chubby in the belly like a stuffed raccoon.

    It Sucks No Doubt But I Wish Manuel Could Be Able To Play Alongside Collins In One Of These Games.
