    McCarthy: Wells has setback
    It appears the Packers won't have center Scott Wells for the season opener -- and perhaps much longer -- after he suffered another setback in his recovery from a recurring lower back injury.

    Coach Mike McCarthy said today the team was gathering more information on the status of Wells, who has sustained or aggravated the "trunk" injury at least three times in recent weeks.

    Asked whether the team previously believed Wells would be ready to play Monday night against Minnesota, McCarthy said, "Definitely. I think it was 16 days that he's been going through the rehab, and this is unfortunate. I know Scott's frustrated, but he had a setback at (Monday's) practice."

    That means the Packers will revert to the starting offensive line that closed the preseason, with Daryn Colledge at left guard, Jason Spitz in Wells' place at center and Tony Moll in Spitz's place at right guard.

    Wells originally sustained the injury in practice on Aug. 1, then aggravated it early in the preseason.

    That's not good. Back problems really suck, and I hope his is better fast. We need him back to run the O line.

    the way it's been going, i'd be more surprised if he was able to come back than if he wasn't able to.

    Can I ask why that post I made a week (I think) ago got under your skin so bad? I mean, I don't really make too many dick comments comments on here, try to be civil with everyone... I make fairly inert comment, and you call me a retard. What gives?

    Probably because they are desperate for validation that their team truly is a Superbowl contender and aren't just another overrated team. :p

    This sucks. We can't keep piecing this line together. Jared Allen is going to feast. Hopefully we'll gut this one out. Look on the bright side...Jackson is still their QB. :lol: I can see Woodson pick-6 already... :rofl:
