Raji (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, the Packers' official site reports. In the aftermath of last Sunday's game, an MRI revealed no damage to Raji's groin, which ended his day early. With the bye week imminent (Week 7), the Packers will keep him in street clothes, as Letroy Guion gets the start at nose tackle.
Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji (groin) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers. An MRI reportedly did not reveal any damage to his groin, yet Raji still figures to miss at least one game. Mike Pennel will likely fill in at nose tackle against a San Diego team that hasn't had much luck with its running game behind an injury-decimated offensive line.
An MRI on Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji's groin Monday revealed no damage, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Raji was removed from Sunday's win against the Rams due to a groin injury, and while it may not be severe, he was still unable to finish that contest. As the week progresses, his ability to practice will forecast if he'll be able to play Sunday against the Chargers.
Raji exited Sunday's game with a groin injury, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The extent of Raji's injury is uncertain, but he was able to remain on the sideline after leaving the game. Even if Raji's injury is minor, the Packers may opt to hold him out of the next game against the Chargers with the team on bye in Week 7.
Mike McCarthy raved Tuesday about the practice work of Packers defensive end B.J. Raji. "I think B.J. is in a great place," McCarthy told the team website. "I thought last year was his best training camp. He's in great shape. He looks great." Raji lost last season to a torn right biceps, but had been a full-time starter in each of his previous five years in the NFL.
