    Just hopping around the NFL.com website, seems like quite a few teams have already racked up some nasty injuries so far, and it's not just the Packers. However, one sobering statistic: 2010 and 2012 had the Packers at #1 for number of games with starters out. Multiplying # of starters x # of games out = 91 in 2010 and 83 in 2012.

    Bulaga is most likely out for the season, so we're got 1 x 16 = 16 games so far and counting for 2013.

    Oh, and please tell me that Eddie Lacy is NOT HURT!!

    Guess what? Datone Jones twisted his ankle, the same one he injured a couple of weeks ago, and he's out again.

    And there goes another #1 draft choice.

    And Muluumba's knee "blew up" in a meeting. . . /boggle

    What's the status with Burnett's and Jones' hammies? And Hayward?

    I was out of town all weekend and I haven't been able to find any info.

    Burnett was minor. Brad Jones was practicing the next day. Hayward they are more concerned about.

    I bet that we won't see Hayward for a few more weeks now if not, dare I say, putting him on the PUP to make sure that he's 100% for a playoff run. I think that our secondary could absorb being without him for the first six weeks. It's a deep unit, not elite, but deep.

    Isn't this a bit pessimistic? Have we even seen a report on Hayward?

    Having to carry an injured Harris and BJones and Hayward on the 53 will cost an extra lineman and TE spot I figure. Will probably carry an extra ILB and DB now and go light with 3 healthy HB's and Kuhn.

    Doubtful. I was already expecting a 6 CB roster, and around 5 ILB. We're mediocre enough at ILB we have the appearance of depth, and Francois looked good against the 2's. Chances are we go light at OL, S, and OLB

    I've been very impressed with Hyde. He should be at least an adequate fill-in for Hayward at nickel. I'm more concerned about the cover corner spot opposite Shields. Williams' injury, House's awful guessing and guessing wrong against St. Louis, notwithstanding the bounce back against Seattle...it concerns me, especially since Whitt plans on keeping the CBs set at left-and-right sides rather than having a defined #1 and #2. If that corner is a weak link, opponents will run their #1 WR against him.

    The Packers placed T Bryan Bulaga, WR Kevin Dorsey, RB DuJuan Harris and LB Jarvis Reed on injured reserve. S Sean Richardson, T Derek Sherrod, T JC Tretter and DE Jerel Worthy were placed on reserve/physically unable to perform.

    I don't know, but I'm sure the Packers aren't the only team that has players not on it. Point being, we're really no more banged up than anyone else.

    Well given the injury history of our team time is not on our side.

    The list provided by the link is not comprehensive and does not reflect the injury status of our team and probably not others.

    Man, we bitch about injuries a lot as Packers fans... Thank God none of us are coaches of this team.

    It is what it is, the last few years we have tended to have more than others, but nothing you can do about it on the freak ones. On the hammy's and crap, that seems like a conditioning thing to me, who's in charge of making sure these guys are hydrated and stretched??

    As far as the freak knee blowout's and crazy stuff, we aren't any worse for wear than any other team out there.

    I live in San Diego, get a constant run of updates from them and about the Raiders, the second most popular team here. My wife is a 49'er fan so I get her updates daily too. All of them are hurting like you wouldn't believe. Difference is for the Chargers, it seems any injury is devastating. Raiders nearly as bad. 9'ers not as bad, but losing Crabtree is bad since their next best receiver is either their TE or an ancient Bolden. Everyone gets them, the difference is what the backups can/ will do in replacing starters. Everyone is going through it and it seems much mo frequent under the new CBA.

    Ultimately, the players are. They're professional athletes and have been taught to stretch and maintain hydration since 5th grade.

    Now there's something Ill agree with. Our first rounders have had God awful luck their first years with injury.

    If I wasn't a Packers fan... I'd prob start crying if I was drafted in the first round by the Packers.
