    Packers list six defenders on injury report

    The Packers have six players on the injury report for Week 8 against the Vikings from the defensive side of the ball, and only one has been ruled out at this point. While the team will definitely be without linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), a pair of other linebackers still have a chance to play: Nick Perry (foot) and Brad Jones (hamstring) are both questionable for Sunday's game. Defensive backs Jarrett Bush (hamstring), Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Jerron McMillian (personal) are all probable and expected to play.

    Morgan Burnett's injury could force lineup change in secondary

    With Morgan Burnett's return date unknown, the Packers could be counting on safeties M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian to start in the season opener against the 49ers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Burnett left Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks with a hamstring injury. "We both know what we're doing," said McMillian, who was competing with Jennings for starting strong safety job before Burnett was hurt. "That's the key and we have to both be communicating."

    Packers can't wait to watch competition at safety

    The Packers haven't decided yet who will start at the other safety position opposite Morgan Burnett this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian are the front-runners to win the job. "I don't think either one of those guys separated themselves in terms of being 'that guy' at the end of the last season," safeties coach Darren Perry said during OTAs. "They both made strides and I think they're going to be fine football players, I really do. But in terms of who distinguishes themselves as 'the guy,' we're just going to have to wait and see and enjoy the competition. It should be fun to watch because both of those guys know what's at stake." Jennings does have one more year in Green Bay's system over McMillian, but Perry said experience won't be the deciding factor. "I think they're pretty close," Perry said. "They're pretty close. Jerron is an intelligent young man. But again, with good players and great players and average players, consistency is the one thing that always separates those guys. A lot of that is focus and being able to do it play in and game in and game out. So that's what we're looking for. We're looking for the guy who's going to be consistent, do it like we want it done and do it at a high level."

  • Pack goes heavy on defense in draft

    News: Packers general manager Ted Thompson used his first six of eight draft picks on defensive players, getting three of them by trading up three different times. The Packers not only will be counting on first-round draft pick Nick Perry (Southern Cal) to be the pass-rushing complement to Clay Matthews at outside linebacker, but they may have to depend on defensive linemen Jerel Worthy (Michigan State) and Mike Daniels (Iowa) early and often as well. The additions of Worthy and Daniels look to be shrewd moves by Thompson according to The Sports Xchange, who undoubtedly was preparing to lose defensive end Anthony Hargrove for a portion of next season. The Packers' other draft picks include Vanderbilt cornerback Casey Hayward, Maine safety Jerron McMillian and N.C. State linebacker Terrell Manning.
    Analysis: Worthy and Daniels should help up front as part of the Packers' D-line rotation but not put up a ton of stats. Hayward might struggle to find playing time while McMillian was productive in college and could spend a year or two working on special teams before cracking the defense. Manning has to prove he can stay healthy before getting some serious consideration in Fantasy. Of this group, we'd spend a late-round flier in rookie-only drafts on McMillian but that's it.
