Green Bay Packers safety Sean Richardson has been placed on the season-ending injured reserve, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
This move shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Richardson was expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering his second herniated disk of his career. The Packers have been ultra-safe with neck injuries in years past.
Green Bay Packers safety Sean Richardson has a herniated disk in his neck and is expected to miss the rest of the season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The injury is reportedly similar to the one Richardson suffered in 2012 that required neck fusion surgery. Given that the team has been very conservative with neck injuries - they refused to clear Nick Collins or Jermichael Finely in recent years - it's reasonable to wonder if this latest injury could jeopardize Richardson's career.
Richardson had signed a one-year, $2.55 million offer sheet with the Raiders. In three seasons with the Packers, Richardson has collected 42 total tackles in 27 games.
Richardson is a restricted free agent and signed a one-year, $2.55 million offer sheet with the Raiders. The Packers are still "50/50" on whether they will match the deal, according to a report by ESPN, citing a league executive.
In three seasons with the Packers, Richardson has collected 42 total tackles 27 games played.
